A lone warrior deals with an onslaught of menial obstructions on his mysterious and epic quest. The series is currently already up to episode 4, so be sure to share it with friends and spread the action!

Episode 3:Max was brought in as a guardian to police The Bridge, ensuring no one breaks it’s one rule: Once you’re on the Bridge, you aren’t allowed to leave until you can kick somebodies ass!

Be sure to keep up with us on Facebook and find series creator Joel Loukus on Vimeo.  More episodes of The Bridge will be coming soon to an internet near you!

I feel like I should make an announcement as to the reason there have been so few updates as of lately. So I’m gonna make a quick post listing some of the videos and movies I’ve recently been in. This’ll just be a quick list with some promo photos and links, but I’ll post a more in-depth post as each thing is released.

A feature-length science feature film by entrepenuer, musician, inventor, and most importantly, writer Cliff Paris. Based on his own self-published novel of the same name. I play the character Forsythe, who has been praised critically as a remarkably entertaining character from the novel. I hope I’ve brought some credibility to the role!

J. Edgar
I was recently invited to be an extra on Clint Eastwood’s latest project “J. Edgar” and even got to meet the Man With No-Name himself. Got to get a signed dvd cover of Gran Torino for my mom as well! It was a fantastic experience being in period piece costume, seeing Leonardo DiCaprio act. But most importantly: getting a chance to see this aging legend in action behind the camera. The dude is 81 and I’m pretty sure he could still kick my ass.

Here’s the full story link on my youtube, webcam style for anyone wanting to hear about the experience! Part 1 and Part 2.


The Adventures of Louanna Lee (Episode 4)
I have been playing the supporting role of Norville Winterbottom in Lee Doll’s TV series “The Adventures of Louanna Lee” for a couple of days now and it has been pretty fantastic. Definitely enjoying this chance to play something more over the top and comedic in this family friendly kids-teens show!

You can find the trailer for the upcoming episode here!


The Demise of Charlie Hampstead
Premiering tonight at Towson University, this dramatic revenge thriller is creepy, perverse and downright unpleasant. I enjoyed every minute of filming the scenes with the rest of the cast including Nick Hanson and Dominique Spencer. I also choreographed and supervised the stunt sequence which ends in my death and a whole lot of mayhem. Directed by rising film maker Christian Pack.


Just been busy making this movie! It’s coming out great. Here’s a promo picture of me taken by William S. Ralph– our amazing on set photographer. The Teaser was shot just two nights ago and it’s going to come out fabulously! We look forward to showing you!

Coming soon from Rockstar Films is the martial arts action adventure “LEGACY OF DOG”, starring Ryan Brown, David Van Tassel, Nick McCourt and yours truly as Osiris Munich- uber-villain gangster guy!


The teaser has already been released, but to help promote the movie I’m gonna put up the FULL LENGTH TRAILER so you can see us all in action! Get ready- the chaos is coming, MAY 5th up at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD.


Written and directed by David Van Tassel as a student at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, Legacy of Dog is a movie I had the pleasure to star in as the lead villain. The ruthless gang leader, Osiris Munich.

SYNOPSIS (Taken from the Official Facebook Group):

Henry, a young man who grew up in a small village discovers that someone has killed his Master, the man who raised him. Now he is set on a journey of revenge where he must travel to a different world of the big city to exact vengeance.

Creating the fight choreography for the final climactic battle between myself and Henry was a tough task, and one I did not take lightly. Working with rising star Nick McCourt, who had never taken a martial art in his life, I had to instruct him in some Kung Fu basics (the Shaolin styles I have learned under Fundi John Weeks at Self Mastery Systems) including footwork, waist movement, and stances. Nick learned super-quick, and by the time we had to film the showdown, he was a force to be reckoned with.

Before you see the final fight in the finished version of the film, I have a treat for you all to check out: some exclusive behind-the-scenes recordings of the training sessions, edited to Eminem’s “Cinderella Man”. I figured the music was appropriate, because it applies to Nick’s character Henry, who must defy the odds and defeat the evil Kung Fu master, Osiris Munich, so that he can avenge his grandfather and save the town of Bellicus City.

You can also watch the original prequel minisode in which Munich appears for the first time, “Two Brothers”, a role I personally felt was a source of major growth in my acting skills. Instead of playing Munich as a super-angry psycho gangster, I tried a different approach. Let me know what you think! Mad props to David Van Tassel for getting this project off the ground!

LEGACY OF DOG will Premiere Sometime this May!

I got an unexpected call from Rob Moroney last night, telling me he had an extra ticket to the Red State Tour in DC. I had no idea it was happening. Red State wasn’t a movie I was sure I had much interest in, but I knew Kevin Smith– a hero from my teenage years– would be there. And I also knew that Rob Moroney and I had a track record for hunting down famous people and getting pictures with them. Among other things…

So…OFF WE WENT- taking the metro down to DC again to the Warner Theater, where we had last tackled Denis Leary in a back alley and forced him to sign cigarettes for us, to meet one of the most well known progenitors of the Indy Cinema scene. Oh, and see his newest, most shockingly different movie yet.

Before the show began, Kevin came up on stage to give us in the audience some intel and backstory on the project. While I had heard Kevin Smith was making a horror movie, I had never really read much into it, figuring that, like most of his last few movies, I’d end up seeing it on DVD at some point in the comfort of my own home. Not in this case- I was amidst a sea of maybe two thousand or so Kevin Smith fans, hungry for his second to last project, and certainly his most diverse and unique film in his collection.

So I didn’t know a lot going in. I didn’t know that the badguys were essentially a cartoonized version of the Phelps clan of Everybody Haters, turned into Yosemite Sammites, out to purge the world of everything that used its genitals for non-procreation. Based on Smith’s opening words to the audience, and the final result of the film, it felt like he created this family of yahoos by imagining what it would be like if the Phelps family played too much Grand Theft Auto 3. But more about that when I get to my short review.
