The Real Tony Mendez

Oct 13, 2012
I can't hide my excitement for Argo. Ben Affleck directed and starred in this film as Tony Mendez, a CIA infiltration expert who pretended to be a fake Canadian movie producer to release 6 US hostages out of Iran.

Mendez was present in the Argo red carpet premiere along with the cast and crew to support the film.

He disguised himself as a fake Canadian film producer who goes to Tehran, Iran for a "location scout" for a sci-fi film entitled "Argo." Mendez also had the US embassy hostages disguised themselves as his personal film crew to get them out. This story wasn't publicized until the late '90s when former US President Jimmy Carter declassified it.

Argo is locally distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and is showing on October 17 on theaters and SM Cinemas nationwide. For schedules and updates, visit them on
