"…a terrific Sam Giancana (Serge Houde, and where has this formidable actor been all of Martin Scorsese's life?)."
GQ Magazine - Tom Carson
He has that steely stare that all those mafia bosses seem to have. He could scare you without a gun. He was wonderful. He is in pivotal scenes that tell the story of the Mafia connection to the White House. And Serge was wonderful in portraying that scary persona. Of course, in real life he’s an absolute sweetheart, but I find that’s often the case. Usually the worst, meanest guys on film are the nicest on the set.
The Globe and Mail - Director Jon Cassar
"Critics generally found Octobre taut and provocative and praised actor Serge Houde as Laporte.”
