Many Westporters know Adam Lubarsky as the owner of 2 very popular restaurant/bar/music venues: the Georgetown Saloon and Blu Parrot.
These days you can find him at Southport’s Grey Goose.
But the 1973 Staples High School graduate has also enjoyed a long and parallel career as an actor. He’s had a principal role in the film “You Don’t Know Jack”; been seen on TV’s “Law and Order,” and done commercials too.
Lubarsky’s latest gig: the face of Novartis’ “Keep it Pumping” campaign.
Visitors to the drug maker’s site see several striking images of Lubarsky, calmly reading a paper as water rises all around. A 30-second video reinforces the main idea: “With heart failure, danger rises over time.”
The same video runs as a TV ad. It aired last Sunday on “60 Minutes.”
If you miss him online — or the Grey Goose — you can see him May 13.
That’s when his next film — “Money Monster,” directed by Jodie Foster and starring George Clooney — opens in theaters.
Lubarsky plays a construction worker.
