Metalsmith's sculptures get small role in upcoming 'Miss January'

By Susan R. Pollack / The Detroit News / September 18, 2008

A "scrappy" dog named Big Buck and a 10-foot metal lizard, creations of a local industrial artist, will play bit parts in a Hollywood movie being filmed now in Michigan.

Plucked from artist Tom Crimboli's Eastpointe backyard, the metal animal sculptures and six other oversized works -- including a specially commissioned piece he welded from old car parts -- will appear in the Camelot Pictures film "Miss January," starring Kim Cattrall ("Sex in the City") and Brian Dennehy ("F/X").
