I’ve had a most excellent time as a comedian performing live comedy on stages all over and wanted to try my hand at movies. Arkansas has provided me with many opportunities to do so as an actor. I’ve taken on several various roles to test my diversity. My character personalities are very diverse and include: an emotionally shocked /numb ex-boyfriend, a married-too-young frustrated husband, a smart-alec backstabbing businessman, a hungry stoner, a parody-style soap star, a fresh out of prison vengeful ex-husband, and a life-threatened Bio-Hazard guy. The adventure has been challenging at times, but challenges are always welcome. I have discovered a love of acting, producing, and writing films, along with performing live comedy.
More films are on their way from WTF (Way Too Funny) Comedy throughout 2010 – 2011. The 48 Hour Film Festival 2010 in Little Rock, Arkansas will be here in just a couple of weeks. I have a huge announcement coming soon that involves a Hollywood Movie and Stage icon that I’ve watched since I was young. There is a VERY good chance that I may be involved in an event with them. I will announce this as soon as I can make it public. I will continue with acting in film opportunities as they arise throughout the foreseeable future.
I would like to update you about the films that I am currently involved in and what their current statuses are:
Tuckerman (Post Production, Winter 2010 Release, Filmed in Arkansas) – Every man remembers his first true love. As a teenager, Robert Coltman had loved Connie Sutton. Now, as an adult, she’s committed suicide (Or so they say). Returning to his hometown in Tuckerman, Arkansas to investigate, strange occurrences force him to realize: Some memories come back to haunt you. Tuckerman is a feature-length thriller currently being produced by The Film Group, in association with Independent Guerilla and Written and Directed by Jett West.
