The film The Company Men, which stars popular names Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner, and Mario Bello, will also feature an appearance by a resident of Massachusetts: Canton actress Cindy Lentol. Company Men, which was shot in Boston last summer and debuted at the Sundance Film Festival screenings at the Coolidge Corner Theater in January, hits theaters today. The movie tells of three businessmen who are dealing with the effects of corporate downsizing. Lentol plays Dana, a woman who hosts a dinner party where Jones’s character is one of her guests.
Lentol has lived in Canton, Mass. for 11 years since moving from Los Angeles, and has had no problem boosting her career as actress and model from New England. Though her name might not be as commonplace as some Hollywood stars, Lentol has been seen — and heard — over the last 20 years in various films and television shows. She appears in an October episode of the ABC medical drama “Body of Proof,” which was filmed in Rhode Island, and has been featured in films such as the 2001 film Prozac Nation and, more recently, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner.
Lentol has also appeared in commercials for companies such as Ocean Spray, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, and Papa Gino’s. Recently she filmed an Applebee’s commercial in Connecticut with ESPN personality Chris Berman, which will air in November, as well as a commercial for Hunt’s Photo and Video, subject to air soon on WCVB-Channel 5. Her resume also includes voice-over work and modeling for print advertisements or billboards.
While she is still looking to land a role in a large project, Lentol feels she is in a good place — a good sign for all you Hollywood East readers looking to dive into an acting career!
