About ‘American Gigolo’

Julian Kaye (Jon Bernthal, Marvel's “The Punisher”) has always been able to become someone else, but when using his skills as a gigolo, he becomes the prime suspect in one of his clients’ death. Sent to prison for 15 years, Detective Sunday (Rosie O’Donnell, “Now and Then”) arranges his release only for him to fall back into old habits.

Now Kaye must wrestle with life outside of incarceration while trying to reconnect with his lost love, Michelle (Gretchen Mol, “The Notorious Betty Page”) and learn who framed him for murder.
