Your upcoming movie The Sacred Incense of the Drinking Man -
in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your
This film is about an average everyday guy that is about to get married
and is seeking a little adventure, and to find the best craft beer
possible. He hears of a holy craft beer being made by Holy Monks and
enlists Suds and Baby Suds to go on the trek to find this holy beer. I'm
playing the character of Baby Suds, the brother of craft beer guru Suds.
I'm a happy go lucky guy who is supposed to be good with the ladies.
How did you get involved with the project in the first place?
I was cast by the writer and directer Josh Mitchell [Josh
Mitchell interview - click here]. We had done some work before
together and when Josh was writing this script he said he pictured me playing
How did you approach your character, and how much of you can we
find in "Baby Suds"?
I wanted the character to be
easy going, maybe a party guy, definitley a laid back Cali guy. There's
definitley some of me in this character, I'm a pretty easy going dude.
Given that The Sacred Incense of the Drinking Man
is basically an outdoors adventure movie -
do you consider yourself an outdoors man?
I love the
outdoors! Going to the beach or hiking some scenic trails are two of my
favorite things to do.
And since the
film is about beer I just have to ask this stupid question: Are you at all
a beer guy?
Who doesn't love beer?!! Sunday football with
beer and wings is allmost religion.
A few words about your director Josh
Mitchell [Josh Mitchell interview -
click here], and what was your collaboration like?
Josh you get a guy with laser-like focus. So many unexpected things come
up when you're filming and when you think something can't be done he finds
you tell us about the actual shoot and the on-set atmosphere?
of laughs, excitment, everyone was really on the same page. I mean we shot
at an Ocean front beach house and on Mount Griffen, how can you go wrong!
go back to the beginnings of your career: What got you into acting in the
first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?
I just wanted to see if I could get in a movie just for the experience and
see what it was all about. I was cast as an extra in a Jack Tapalian
movie called Betrayal that's coming out later this year. I was
a bouncer and got to be involved in this great fight scene and I caught as
they call it "the acting bug". I started taking acting classes at
Margie Harbors Studio and then also with Amy Lyndon.
you still remember your first time in front of a movie camera, and what
was that experience like?
I can, I wasn't really nervous,
more excited. You just hope you don't screw the scene up and the director
What can you tell us about
your filmwork prior to The Sacred Incense of the Drinking Man?
see, Betrayal was my first that I mentioned. Next I shot a
movie in West Virgina call a Breath Away directed by Robert
Bieber, I played an abusive husband. After that I shot Angel of
Death that starred Armand Assante, and I played a mafia bodyguard.
future projects you'd like to talk about?
I'm super excited
about my next film called Supermodel Cannibal. I have a lead
role in this film that is going to feature some great talent. They havent
finished casting yet but some bigtime names are being thrown around. We
start filming in early February. I can't say much about the film except
that its a hilarous comedy and it will leave people shocked and amazed.
From what I've
heard, you have played pro-hockey for a time. What can you tell us about
your hockey career? And is there any way to compare this to acting, or is
this just a silly question?
Yes I played hockey my whole
life growing up in Canada. Loved every second of it. You can draw some
comparisons. Being a part of a film you have to be a team player and work
hard, obviously the same goes for being on a team in any sport.
How would you describe
yourself as an actor?
I'd say I'm still finding myself as
an actor but I think I'll be best suited for physical roles with lots of
action, I'm very athletic and enjoy the physicality of action roles and
would love to do my own stunts. I'm still working on my acting everyday of
course, but I love the challenge of being able to show the emotion the
writer or director is looking for.
