Your new movie Artik - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


Artik is a about a obsessed comic book serial killer who collides with a straight-edged welder over the fate of a young boy. My character of Artik is brutal. Endearing. A force of nature.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and honestly, how much Jerry G. Angelo can we find in villainous Artik?


Great Question! Well since Iím not a serial killer and would be the first to advocate against it, I had the pleasure of doing what actors dream to be able to do. Draw from everything we have from our lives, our craft, talent, experience, and strategize the character that is on the page.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place?


Tom Botchii had seen a trailer of American Warfighter which I star in, and he thought I may be a right fit for the character of Artik. Tom wrote me an email and I called him back. Less than six weeks later we were filming on location in New Mexico.


To what extent could you identify with Artik's brand of horror


Oh geez! Horror scares me. What I love about the brand of horror of Artik is that he is cerebral, quiet and in control.


What can you tell us about Artik's director Tom Botchii, and what was your collaboration like?


Tom Botchii will be one of our generation's next most successful directors, mark my words. Tom gets the knack of telling and selling his craft to his audiences. Loved working with Tom. He has a vision, shares it, collaborates back and forth, and then we execute. He sticks with his teammates through thick and thin.


Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


Filming nights in Albuquerque, New Mexico during the dead of winter was crazy and gave a unique atmosphere to our movie.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


American Warfighter came out this year, I also wrote and directed it. Iím in the new CBS show All Rise. Iím also writing a sci-fi thriller in the vein of Aliens.


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


To be honest with you, I got my truest training from watching movies with my dad as a kid and then playing with my GI Joes afterwards. Iíd have like fifty figures and I gave them all different voices and personalities. This is where I learned about the themes of stories l like to write best and types of characters I like to be. Once I got to Los Angeles, I started classes with different teachers.


Over the years, you have also stepped behind the camera every now and again - now what prompted that move, and which side of the camera do you enjoy more, actually?


I genuinely love and respect all sides of the camera. My passion is creating incredible stories with unforgettable characters and moments that will inspire for lifetimes, just like what has been blessed to me. Iím a natural leader and I know how to run a fun ship, so directing makes sense.


How would you describe yourself as an actor, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?


Iím a creative actor. Itís important to me to not be regular, and to be entertaining. I like to take a script and find ways to bring all the colors of the rainbow of emotions into the character from the time the character is first seen to their last exit. I like to do it physically and verbally, and emotionally.


Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?


Iím inspired most by character actors. Actors that transform from who they are. Some of absolute favorites, Daniel Day Lewis, Robert Downey jr, Marlon Brando, Meryl Streep, Leonardo Di Caprio.
