Just booked the lead role in a film called "The Afternoon Girl". We start shooting early Jan 2018—that'll start off the year right!
"Hickok" was finally released! Gotta admit: it was a serious thrill to see face filling up the entire screen at the movie theatre as I played opposite Kris Kristofferson and Luke Hemsworth! Click here to check out a clip of my scene on my media page.
I'm on a roll—to hopefully lots o' ROLES!! I just signed—theatrically—with the fabulous Courtney Peldon of AQUA Talent!
I signed—commercially—with PANTHEON Talent! And my fantastic new agents are: Pierre Gatling and Patricia Dawson! I couldn't be more excited of the possibilities that await us! Yay!
I was honored to play a role—alongside the likes of the extraordinary talents of actors, Ray Wise and Stephen Macht—in a play reading of “The Portage to San Cristobal of A.H.”! It's a heart-wrenching portrayal of a handful of personalities as they—representing their respective countries—vie for the custody of Adolf Hitler, found to be alive, after "all these years". Heavy!
Holy-schmoley—I've been immortalized! OMG: As part of my ongoing role as "Lloyd, House Manager" in the promotional marketing campaign for Escape Hotel, Hollywood—the largest escape venue in the world—my face is now literally plastered on the side of their building! I think my head might be starting to get too big—what do you think?! Check it out here! And, if you can, in person at the corner of the famous Hollywood Boulevard and Cherokee Ave (3 blocks east of Highland Ave)!
I got to reprise one of my favorite roles as the evil Emissary to the Great King Dalesdane of Fang, "Eldon Ackridge"! The first episode of this amazing pilot series was called "Windward Spirits: A New Ruler" and included a great cast! And the saga continues! Here, in episode 2, it's called "Windward Spirits: Blood Ties" and with more than double the cast and locations, the excitement continues to build! Here's a screen-shot from "A New Ruler":
I just wrapped my 1st western! I played opposite Kris Kristofferson and Luke Hemsworth in a fantastically, juicy supporting role! I was "Preacher Jenkins" and the Town Undertaker! What a blast! We shot much of it on the same set as Westworld! Here are a few production shots! The film will be released to some key theaters in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and possibly New Orleans, somewhere around June or July of 2017! Yay!
Had some great fun playing The Usher in the hugely popular Interactive Horror Theatre production of "Delusion: His Crimson Queen"! Here I am dressed up in my Sunday-best:
I've decided to dive back into voice over! I took classes years ago but never practiced enough to get good enough to make a demo tape. Well, I'm finally starting to build my home recording studio: got a fairly decent microphone, a pop-screen and software and now I'm working on building a portable soundproofed booth to remove reflected bounce off the hard surfaces in my environment.
I had a lot of fun the other day at a voice over workout at the SAG-Foundation VO Lab! It's an amazing resource. And I'm scheduled for 3 more within the next 2 weeks! Can't wait!
And of course—I had to design a VO logo—here it is. Click on it if you'd like to visit the v/o page of my website!
I submitted a self-taped audition/entry to The ABC Discovers Digital Talent Competition. It may be a long-shot—last year they had over 6K entries—but it's an opportunity to be seen by them! And if you don't enter…then it's a NO-shot, right?!
What started out as just a quick print job turned into a full-fledged promotional project! It's all for a soon-to-open (by mid-July) venture on Hollywood Blvd right smack in the middle of all the action! It's an exciting escape room venture called "Escape Hotel" and will be the largest of it's kind in the world! With 10 separate, themed Game Rooms, it's a marriage of "The Shining" and "American Horror Story"! And from the ground up—it's a top-notch enterprise! I get to play Lloyd, Hotel House Manager. Here are a few still shots from the shoot!
It's all about relationships! I've known Mark Teschner for a little over a year now and suddenly—out of the blue—his office calls my agent and "asks" if I might be available to be a guest-star on "General Hospital"! What an honor to have played a role on such an iconic show!
Off another self-taped submission, I booked another lead in another pilot! This one's called "Windward Spirits: A New Ruler". I play an evil Emissary to an even eviler King. (cue evil laugh - :)
Off a self-taped submission, I just booked the recurring lead in a new sci-fi pilot! The series name is "By Night" and the episode where I'm first introduced is called "The Crossing". "Mum's" the word for a while. All I can tell you now is it's along the lines of "The Twilight Zone"—and it's seriously cool!
Happy New Year everyone! What a great start—I just booked a Nikon commercial. In a principal role, I play the Food Critic! I like 2016!
I booked a principal role in a new Sprint commercial campaign starring David Beckham, where I portray a Dentist! Yay!
I played a Police Captain in a pilot that'll soon be shopped around! Fingers and toes crossed!
My wife and I took some R&R and went to Europe! It was fantastic! First it was 4 days in London, then through the Chunnel for 3 days in Paris, then on to Madrid for 2 days and finally, Barcelona for another 3 days. I'm in love with Barcelona! It was only enough time in all of the cities for a mere taste—but every bite was delicious! And we ate a LOT! :)
While in London and Paris, Europe experienced an historical amount of rain—but we were undeterred!
Here are a few pics:
