Andy Garcia Stars in "Max Steel" Movie as "Dr. Miles Edwards" #MaxSteel
Earlier this year I interviewed Andy Garcia during a press junket for his film. Meeting him in person was a jaw dropping experience. Andy is really an amazing actor who gives so much to any role he's part of. So you know he's going to rock as "Dr. Miles Edwards", the brilliant and mysterious scientist, in the upcoming live-action feature film "Max Steel"!

The "Max Steel" film is an in-depth "origin" story packed with captivating characters and fast-paced action. The film is being produced by Dolphin Films and Mattel and is slated for a wide theatrical release domestically by Open Road Films in 2015.
"We're ecstatic to be working with legendary actor Andy Garcia," said Bill O'Dowd, CEO, Dolphin Films. "Dr. Miles Edwards is a very complicated character, and he is central to the entire mythology of Max Steel. The role requires a truly talented actor, and there is no one more qualified than Andy to tackle it."
The plot chronicles the adventures of 16-year old Max McGrath and alien companion Steel, who must harness and combine their tremendous new powers to evolve into the turbo-charged superhero Max Steel. As these two unlikely friends struggle to accept their oddly connected fates, they begin to uncover unimaginable secrets, working together to find the truth, and fighting the mysterious forces threatening their world.
"Max Steel" stars Ben Winchell (Disney's "A.N.T. Farm," "Necessary Roughness") as Max McGrath™ and Ana Villafane ("Hiding," "Los Americans") as Sofia Martinez.
The film is being penned by Marvel Studios veteran Christopher Yost ("Thor: The Dark World"), directed by award-winning director Stewart Hendler ("Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn," "H+") with Academy Award® nominated family entertainment veteran Julia Pistor serving as producer for Mattel's Playground Productions ("Nacho Libre," "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events").
Andy Garcia's recent work includes voicing the character of Eduardo in "Rio 2." He can currently be seen starring as Big Al in "Rob the Mob" and later this year he will star in "Let's Be Cops" from 20th Century Fox.
