I play Professor Slagle in MURDER U: 'No Room for Debate' (TV S1E2)


SEE Full Episode now: MURDER U: 'No Room for Debate'

I'm Professor Slagle in this true-story docudrama on the horrific and shocking murder of a top-ranked debating student on campus. To be part of a fine cast that includes a number of talented young actors.

Among them are Jeremy Hillhouse, Alex Bird, Robert Notman, Mandi Nicholson, Hannah Whitmore, David Walpole, Jordan Cole, Robert Blake (no, not that one!) and David Straus. And, of course, without our fine Director Jeff Hirschfeld and excellent cinematography by Marcus Elliott, we are but actors whose performances would have vanished into air.

MURDER U: 'No Room for Debate'
Original Air Date: April 27, 2016 on T-E Channel (‘Travel and Escape’)
"The future is bright for the young, talented debate stars attending Samford University. The illustrious program trains the leaders of the future at a college known for it's rigorous work ethic and safe community. These are the kids who will change the world – their ambition and grit are matched only by their charm. When a grisly murder hits right at their heart, the entire campus is shaken to its very core."

Trailer for Kevin Spacey/CNN series 'Race for the White House' (I'm Douglas in 'Lincoln vs. Douglas')

I’m in the trailer (quick to miss: I’m Douglas wearing the top-hat struggling through the crowd in an overhead shot at 24 to 25 seconds into the trailer).

This original CNN series has six episodes. I’m Steven A. Douglas in ‘Lincoln vs. Douglas’ (most likely episode two). Race for the White House premieres on Sunday, Mar. 6, at 9 p.m on CNN.

Kevin Spacey narrates the upcoming six-episode CNN original series 'Race for the White House' premiering March 6 at 10 pm. I play Douglas in 'Lincoln vs Douglas'. Mark Ettlinger is Lincoln. And look for the dark side of Brian Carletonand the communication expertise of Alex Bird in this episode. The turmoil, racism and power dynamics of the 1862 campaign has strong resonance in and parallels to the current US election and I hope you'll tune in.

HEIR (Review): '...that rare breed of ambitious and thought-provoking spine-chillers"

HEIR - The Final Short From Fatal Pictures - Review:

"... a welcome addition to that rare breed of ambitious and thought-provoking spine-chillers... the short pushes the boundaries in terms of ambition and originality and ends on the perfect note... Robert Nolan puts in a vulnerable and empathic performance as Gordon, clearly caught up in a personal tailspin, whilst Bill Oberst Jr.’s portrayal of Denis is as creepy as they come....

The other protagonist of the short is the special effects wizardry of Ryan Gerard Louagie of The Butcher Shop as he musters up memories of the likes of Cronenberg’s The Fly or the more recent creature feature, Benson and Moorhead’s Spring.... 

Michael Davidson’s cinematography is second to none and, combined with Christopher Guglick's hypnagogic score, if you walked into the short halfway through you’d think this was a full-scale feature-length movie." 


FULL REVIEW HERE.

HEIR cast includes Mateo D'Avino, Jane Pokou

Written and directed by Richard Powell, produced by Zach Green of Fatal Pictures & Marc Roussel & Ronnie Basch of Red Sneakers Media.

‪HEIR‬ will be coming to the UK Celluloid Screams: Sheffield Horror Film Festival - October 23rd - 25th 2015 http://celluloidscreams.co.uk.

ALICE IN WONDERLAND - This year is the 150th Anniversary of its Publication in 1865.

A children's book, an allegory, a social commentary, a political satire, a guide to the true meaning of life and how to live it and hundreds of other delightful and impossible things just before breakfast, this is one of my favourite books of all time. 

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. 
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad." 
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice. 
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.” 
― (Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland)
