is six-year-old Nicky, a little boy in big trouble. The middle
of three children in a Puerto Rican family living in New Jersey,
where the father is an Air Force professional, he was chosen by
director Sidney Lumet after an extensive search involving hundreds
of little boys.
Gloria marks Jean-Luke's first major acting role. He earlier
appeared on television in one episode of the afternoon serial
"Another World," one segment of the "Our Home"
daytime series and in a public service promotion for chicken pox
He is currently shooting the lead role, Ramon, in 50 Violins
with Meryl Streep and Mariah Carey and can be seen in the national
network commercial for V-8.
Wise beyond his years, the youth says, "I liked doing Gloria
for lots of reasons. One was working with Sidney. He's the best
director. Who would not want to work with Sidney? All the other
kids are just dying to work with him. And being with Sharon was
big fun. In the movie we don't like each other at first and she's
trying to dump me off everywhere 'cause we're bad for each other.
But that was pretend.
"I definitely would like to be an actor. I'd make movies
called 'Star Fox,' 'Star Wolf,' 'Star Monster.' They already did
Star Wars and Starship Troopers. Sharon's nice and
she's my friend, but the one I really want to work with is Luke
