Best Florida Man: Tyler Riggs ‘God’s Waiting Room’

Tyler Riggs ‘God’s Waiting Room’

Truth be told, this one’s for “Jules” a character Matthew Leone plays in “God’s Waiting Room,” a stirring new movie written and directed by Tampa native Tyler Riggs. The film premiered at Tribeca, which named Leone “Best Actor” in the wake of a performance that let us into the world of a boy faking his way through life and looking for a connection outside of his drug hustle. All the other characters in "God's Waiting Room" make us want to drag Riggs into a bar and ask him how in the hell he bottled all the angst of growing up in steamy, reptilian, overgrown Florida into 98 minutes. @tyleriggs on Instagram
