Here's an update to my reel that now begins with two new short procedural clips. I'll have three longer clips up within a couple of weeks.
I'm happy to say that I'm now represented in NYC by Stefanie Field, of Stefanie Talent & Entertainment. Stefanie's a straight shooter, good communicator, and hard-working advocate for her actors. I'm delighted to be working with her.I remain represented in Philadelphia by Sarah Howell, at Reinhard Talent, and in the Pacific Northwest by Cholee Thompson and Taylor Harris, of Ryan Artists.
The Alliance for New Music-Theatre, under the direction of Artistic Director Susan Galbraith, presented a section of Vaclav Havel's PROTEST, for a panel on Havel, featuring former US Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, and former Ambassador for the Czech Republic, Martin Poluch, at the Crosscurrents festival in Washington, D.C., this month. The theme of the Crosscurrents Festival is "humanizing politics through performance," a goal expressed variously and often movingly by thea...

This weekend I filled in for an actor down with the flu in the role of "The Man," in a 'Sleep No More' like performance by the women-oriented dance/theatre group, The Neo Political Cowgirls, at a private estate--which is up for sale--in East Hampton, NY. VOYEUR was directed Kate Mueth. I had a great time and happily extended my theater world to include some great folks out in The Hamptons and Sag Harbor.
Writer, director, and actor Derek Evans worked for four years to make his very large cast, very low budget, action-comedy THE KING OF BLOODY FOOK'N BRITAIN, in which I play the fixer, Mr. Clean. I loved working on this set with an enthusiastic cast and crew that made me fall in love with Atlanta, where up-and-coming filmmakers are making a strong community, in which everyone seems to help each other out.
I'm not terribly comfortable on the red 'carpet!'
I'm now a PADI-certified Divemaster and Assistant Instructor Candidate. "Divemaster" is a professional certification allowing me to lead certified divers on dives, instruct refresher courses, and assist in teaching Open Water Diver courses. I started the Divemaster program for two reasons: 1) to become a better diver and 2) be prepared to manage the challenges and risks of diving on film sets at which water scenes are being shot.
I had a great time on set in the small but wonderfully named character, "Coogan Hudnutt." There was a lot of action packed into my short time on screen: I held a shotgun, ran from the hero, had a scene with James Spader, had my mugshot up in the 'War Room,' was badmouthed by the series' regulars, and was tortured--on the rack--all in about a minute of screen time. My first appearance on network episodic tv was incredibly fun and fulfilling. I look forward to doing mor...
I'm super pleased to say that I'll be on THE BLACKLIST, episode 517, "Anna Gracia-Duerte," on April 4th, 2018. I play the small role of the tantalizingly named "Coogan Hudnutt." This is my network tv premiere and I couldn't be happier about it! THE BLACKLIST is a mammoth enterprise, shot both in cavernous studios and on location, so there's no slack in the day.
