When I was 10, I was a GOD! Egyptian actually - the God of the Dead - Osiris, the lead in our annual elementary school play. Each performance, I was dramatically "killed" and stuffed into a cardboard box (AKA my sarcophagus). As the third grade "slaves" carried me away, I'd be secretly cheering in that box - so happy to be in this play. I've been hooked on acting ever since.
I have a huge training background in theatre - studying with life changing teachers such as Patsy Rodenburg and Grace Zandarski. And I've worked with some awesome NY theatre companies like Partial Comfort Productions, Labrynth Theatre Company and Leviathan Lab. But acting in film is my JAM! I have a natural affinity for the quick turnaround, hitting marks, and adapting well to the random needs that pop up on shoots. I've shot some fun big budget movies like Marci X (Lisa Kudrow) and Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and always love work on indie projects. Collaboration with film artists/experts like Roz Coleman Williams, Ryan Kipp and Jennifer Tuttle are gifts I will always treasure.
So how do you cast me? Powerful (Egyptian God anyone?) but flawed characters are my forte. The over-the-top attorney that changes your life while still figuring out his own is all me. The sinister white collar criminal with hidden vulnerabilities - a done deal. The goofball single father of five who is afraid of marriage - book me! Stories about human connection that push for truthful intimacy are where my passion lies. I hope to collaborate with you soon. - Marc
HOW TO CAST ME:
Detective / LAWYER
SAMPLE CHARACTER BREAKDOWN: ARCHER SEVILLA (39), Chiseled in every-way Asian- American attorney. A killer with words in the courtroom, he wins every case he litigates. But when his father unexpectedly dies and his mother sues him for negligence, Archer faces his first case that just may unravel him.
CONTROLLING FATHER / ROMANTIC DATE
SAMPLE CHARACTER BREAKDOWN: JASON - Single Dad with three kids and a freezer full of meat. Jason is the local butcher with words of wisdom for his regular customers but he can't seem to get a date. Maybe it's the fact that he uses specials on short ribs to flirt.
