Randy Vera

Randy Vera

It was actor Chris O’Donnell, who optioned Paul Stanton’s Film 2001’s “On the Line” (Miramax). Stanton, Randy’s friend at Boston College, used Randy as the inspiration for one of the main characters in the film. Randy was portrayed by none other than “N’ Sync’s” Joey Fatone. “Ya, surreal! One of the writers, Paul Stanton, a bud of mine from school, told me Fatone’s character was based on me. He asked if I was cool with it. I thought it was the coolest thing ever.” Randy told the Boston Tab in a recent interviue.

Randy has written music for documentary film, and a musical play, as well as 4 full length albums. His current EP is titled Stealing it back and is available in I tunes, and Amazon.com. Now in his third decade of performing and writing, he hopes this project titled “Steeling it Back” will help him pay back his school loans and support his daughters.
