John Duddy [kneeling center], the former boxer turned thespian, poses with the crew of “Emerald City” and players of CSL champions Lansdowne Bhoys
after a game at Tibbetts Brook Park in Yonkers last week. Duddy, who nodded in a goal, plays ex-boxer Podge Quinn in the Colin Broderick written and directed drama.
It is the first major motion picture to focus entirely on the Irish working class of New York. Duddy makes his big screen debut alongside
Robert De Niro in “Hands of Stone,” a film on the life of Panamanian boxing legend Roberto Duran, due out next year. Photo credit: Jon Simmons.
