Michael Cyril Creighton:

Michael Cyril Creighton: "I do miss Chicken Video [in Kings Park]. It was a video store that also sold fried chicken. I think no matter who you are or where you are from, coming home always feels a little familiar." The actor and writer is a Kings Park native, currently living in Manhattan. Creighton has appeared in such TV shows as "Louie," "Orange is the New Black," "30 Rock" and "2 Broke Girls," as well as receiving critical acclaim for a small role in the film "Spotlight," which won the Best Picture Academy Award in 2015.
