Corner Club's Bruce Reiss in The Infiltrator

Bryan Cranston and the crew of The Infiltrator, a film about a U.S. Customs official who uncovers a money-laundering scheme involving Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, made their way to the Tampa Bay area this year and filmed on location at the Don CeSar and other locations. Beloved dive bar the Corner Club and our favorite Rays-loving bartender Bruce Reiss got to appear in a scene with Cranston and John Leguizamo. Says Reiss: “All I had to do was be behind the bar and pick up a customer’s glass, walk to another spot and wipe down the bar… I was told that I was in a pivotal scene, and would be seen. I await with anticipation for my probably three seconds of fame on the big screen in 2016.”
