Former Ford model-turned-actor Tobias Truvillion was selected to play a starring role as volatile U.S. Army soldier Julius “Monti” Montgomery in the Damian Voerg-directed feature film ‘Cigarette Soup.’ For its explosive storyline, ‘Cigarette Soup’ earned the 2014 “Best Feature Film” award at the Long Island International Film Festival (July 17). In addition to acting in the film, Tobias also served as the project’s associate producer.
The riveting plot involves a young and zealous journalist chosen to embed with a platoon of U.S. Army soldiers during the height of the war in Afghanistan. The film doesn’t focus on the larger conflict of the war, rather tells the personal stories of the brave men serving. Between January 1 and May 1 of 2014 alone, an estimated 1900 U.S. Veterans are thought to have committed suicide. Since the start of Operation Enduring Freedom, there have been few mainstream films that have depicted the war. ‘Cigarette Soup’ is very unique because it reminds us that those who serve our country are human and every individual, soldier, sailor, airman, and marine has a story to tell.
