Former FBI Agent Zip Connelly Always Wanted To Have A Movie Made About Himself, But 'Black Mass' Is About The Mobster And Serial Killer Who Owned Him
Veteran journalist and author Howie Carr offers a column in the Boston Herald about former FBI agent 'Zip' Connelly and Boston mobster 'Whitey' Bulger.
“Black Mass” screens nationwide next month. Think of this as Zip’s part in the prerelease publicity campaign. Johnny Depp, in the role of Zip’s paymaster, won’t be available for interviews until the actual premiere. In the meantime, Connolly garners a few headlines for the biopic about his capo di tutti capi.
