(Cause I’m lazy and busy)

Tonight we have a very special treat for our growing fan-base of BITE THE HAND!

We have an official teaser for you all to view! We hope you enjoy. Please share with friends and fans of independent film in the DC area!

Now, as you have seen from the teaser, we have no reason not to announce the fantastically opportune casting of:


Jay’s audition brought a lot of different elements to the table. We’ll be sure to post some behind-the-scenes stuff in the near future, but for now check out the photos of him in character as RED and send him a high-five through the internet! Out of an extremely difficult casting process, we were very excited to receive the Ninjas Vs. Vampires star as one of our lead actors!

Special thanks also go to two more awesome additions to the crew: Jake Weeks as audio engineer and Joel Loukus of APSIS as VFX guru. Without these two guys, the teaser would not be anywhere near as awesome as it’s concept promised to be by rising DP Habib Awan. We hope you agree that it delivers!

Thank you all for your continued support! Be sure to keep up with us on the Facebook Pages! Also be sure to find and favorite the new Strike a Pose!!! Films Fan Page on Facebook and follow Bite the Hand on Twitter.

a Promotional Still from Jay’s Audition!

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!

For more about Bite the Hand, visit the website! A teaser is coming soon!

Or find it on Facebook!

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.


RIP Sidney Lumet

Early yesterday, legendary film maker Sidney Lumet passed away, dying at the age of 86 at his home in New York.

I find this personally ironic, because just the day before, I was telling a couple of my friends about this amazing book I was reading called “Making Movies.” It is Lumet’s own person reflection on film making, as a business, as an art, and as a way of life. It is the most honest interpretation of the process I have ever read, and is so well reading it doesn’t feel text-book at all. It explores the pathos of the entire production team, and the logic behind their methods.

How many of his movies have I seen? Most likely only a half dozen of his, my favorites of which would be the classic Pancino films, Serpico and Dog Day Afternoon, and the under appreciated Vin Diesel courtroom drama, Find Me Guilty.

I’m pretty sure once I’m done reading this amazing book, I’m going to go on a viewing spree dedicated to this great artist. Yes, artist. Because not all film is art, but movies that make you think, like 12 Angry Men and Network, truly say the potential is there. And while he might not have believed in the director as an auteur himself, he definitely knew his craft and how to use it, just as Picasso could take an easel, paint, and a brush, and do something beautiful.

Rest in Peace, Master Lumet. I’ll be sure to learn all I can from your fantastic works.
