'The Long Game' Actors Julian Works, Miguel Angel Garcia and Jose Julian Talk Sports Movie and Racism in 1950s

The Long Game sports movie with Dennis Quaid and Jay Hernandez

THE LONG GAME'S actors Julian Works, Miguel Angel Garcia, Jose Julian and Paulina Chavez, play the real-life Mexican American teens in 1950s Texas who defied the odds and beat the elite golfing teams at a whites-only golf club. The actors chat about what it was like playing Latino teens who were seen as outsiders in their own country alongside Jay Hernandez, Cheech Marin and Dennis Quaid. 

THE LONG GAME is now in movie theaters.


THE LONG GAME, inspired by the book “Mustang Miracle” written by Humberto G. Garcia, follows the true story of five young Mexican American caddies in 1955 who created their own golf course in the middle of the South Texas brush country. Despite outdated and inferior equipment and no professional instruction to begin with, they would go on to compete against wealthy, all-white teams and win the 1957 Texas State High School Golf Championship.

Alongside Hernandez and Quaid, The Long Game stars comedy legend Cheech Marin, who returns to the green for a charming, heartfelt performance for the first time since Tin Cup. Newcomers Julian Works and Paulina Chavez give marquee performances opposite Jaina Lee Ortiz, Brett Cullen, and the hilarious and lovable Oscar Nuñez. In addition to directing, Quintana also wrote the script alongside Paco Farías and Jennifer Stetson; produced by Javier Chapa, Ben Howard, Dennis Quaid, Marla Quintana and Laura Quaid; executive produced by Jay Hernandez, Phillip Braun, Christian Sosa, Simon Wise, Colleen Barshop and Vincent Cordero.
