Remember this face: Port Angeles man will have role in upcoming movie, ‘Pineapple Express’

PORT ANGELES — Arthur Napiontek wants to keep people rolling in the aisles.

The 20-year-old former Port Angeles High School student left for Los Angeles from Port Angeles as soon as he completed high school.

Having already racked up some name recognition in the form of modeling, he wanted to pursue his passion — acting.

He scored his first major motion picture role as a supporting actor in “Pineapple Express” — an action film about the misadventures of a marijuana user and his dealer after witnessing a cop committing a murder.

Napiontek plays a character named Clark who knows the main character’s girlfriend at his high school.

“My part is a minor supporting part, but the scene with Seth Rogan [the lead character] and Amber Heard [the girlfriend] is one of the top two funniest moments in the movie,” Napiontek said.

“I am really excited because that scene has gotten a lot of recognition.”

Napiontek said that the scene was noted when the film was featured at the Young Hollywood Awards.
