Whoa!!! I am tired. But it has all been worth it! We are making our way through the film and it’s been a great ride. Long days of being bloody and sweaty but it looks awesome on camera.
And the people we have met and established friendships with are amazing. This past week we got to work with Matt Servitto. You might remember him from The Sopranos or his most recent show Banshee. He is one of the coolest dudes in the business. He came in and brought a great energy to set. He was fun, gracious and understood what we were trying to do.
He had everyone on set laughing the whole time he was here. I hope that one day I can be the type of actor Matt has become. Great at his craft, grateful for the work, realizes we aren’t performing heart surgery and has a great sense of humor. It was a pleasure and an honor to work with him and hope that I get the opportunity to do so again.

Wow!!! The past two weeks have been a blur!!! Fun. But a blur. We are in the middle of shooting our feature film, “The Night Watchmen.” What an experience it has been!!! The film is a horror action comedy. We are having a blast doing the stunts, the fx and the comedy. What a great team of filmmakers from all around the country. We have Mitch Altieri directing. His vision is starting to develop and it looks amazing. It’s been a pleasure to work with him on a daily basis. A true actors director he lets us explore as much as we’d like yet keeps us grounded. Playing our leading lady is Kara Luiz. Funny and beautiful she kicks ass as our strong vampire killing machine! You might recognize her from The Big Bang Theory. Max Gray Wilbur plays our naive trainee who enters a world he never thought would ever happen to him. We were lucky enough to have James Remar join the cast. A veteran Hollywood actor his career spans over 4 decades with memorable roles in “The Warriors”, “Sex and the City”, and more recently “Dexter.” He was a blast to work with and brings a whole new dimension to his character Randall. So as we proceed into the second half of our shooting schedule we look forward to many more fun days of vampires, stunts, comedy and memories. It has been hard work but when you see the final film I have a good feeling you will be entertained. Check back for more updates as we continue shooting. Ken
Had an excellent time getting new pics last week with Clinton B Photography in Baltimore. Here’s one image from the many outstanding shots Clinton captured that day.
If you get the chance, schedule an appointment and get some great headshots for yourself.
As an actor we have to constantly keep adding to our skill set. I recently added PADI certified Scuba Diver to mine. During a recent outing to Lake Rawlings, VIrginia I spent two days finishing the required dives and skills to receive my certification. It was a great experience with Stingray’s Scuba School and head instructor Sherman Casto. He is a wonderful instructor who makes the learning experience fun and, of course, safe. Scuba diving is something I was not too sure I could do but since working with Sherm I am addicted. It is a surreal experience that I can’t wait to do again. In the spring I am going to continue my training and get my advanced training certification and by the end of summer my rescue diver cert. It’s going to be a fun challenge. Below is a video from my weekend in Rawlings as well as a picture. Notice in the photo the name of the film that was shot under water at Lake Rawlings. Whoa.
Here’s to you Keanu!
I am proud to announce that I have signed an agreement to be represented by Across the Board Talent Agency in New York and LA. Owned by Guy Kochlani I will be working closely with Lauren Gold in their NY department. I look forward to the opportunity to work with such an outstanding agency repping many of the busiest working actors on both coasts!
