LPD’s Sgt. Gross Discusses His Role in Oscar-Nominated Film

“How hard is it to play a frickin’ cop when you’ve been doing it for 30 years?” said Gary Gross, who appears briefly in “The Florida Project.” Willem DaFoe was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the film, which was shot in Orlando. Gross, LPD’s public information officer, has a side gig advising movie and TV crews on portrayal of police and leasing law enforcement gear to them.
