would like to introduce our four loyal leads, who stood by us enthusiastically
through thick and... well, actually, it was all thick. Working with people
like this is the best thing, without a doubt, that any independent filmmaker
can do for her movie. It's certainly the best thing we did for ours.
-- "Ron Fervent" -- Derek is a star of stage and screen.
He has played Albert Peterson in Bye Bye Birdie, Roderigo in Othello,
and is a brilliant improvisational comedic actor who founded an improv comedy
troupe, Slaphappy. His screen credits include the featured role of Fred in
the cult indie hit Scattering Ashes, and the role of Donut Kid, opposite
Sinbad, in the film First Kid. On the Amazon
page for this film, scroll down a bit and juuuust a bit underneath Sinbad's
name is Derek's! On top of his performing talents, Derek is also a genuinely
good-hearted fellow. And he dresses well.
-- "John T." -- Mr. Jernigan, AKA "John Thomas," AKA TJ,
is a veteran of stage and screen and works regularly as a founding member
with Virginia Beach's own improv comedy group The Improvisionarys. Realizing
early his passion for multiple personalties, TJ decided to become an actor.
Stage credits include Tom Joad in The Grapes of Wrath, The middle urn
in Samuel Beckett's play, Play, and currently he is working on The
Warriors Lament found at www.warriorslament.com.
Film credits include Hearts in Atlantis where he is the photo of Bobby's
Dad, Wicked Spring, The Flock, An Ordinary Killer with
Dan Haggerty, Terrance Knox and Charlie Matthew, and The Nest, winner
of the 1999 best action short at the NYC international Film Festival. TJ is
also the voice of Ceraphon in the cartoon Angel Wars. TJ enjoys extreme
sports such as surfing, bike racing, mountain climbing, and skydiving and
could watch them all day, preferably with a Guinness, which he sponsors daily.
TJ also smells nice.
-- "Devonah" -- Ms. Poirier is not only enjoying her first
starring film role, she is enjoying her first film role, period. Well, the
first one she'll admit to you, anyway. She is a trained ballet dancer,
having danced with the Brandywine Ballet Company in Pennsylvania. Her first
stage role ever was Obi Wan Kenobi in a dramatic staging of Star Wars
while a camp counselor. The proficency she gained there with weapons has served
her well in this film--as you can see at right, she can simultaneously manage
three firearms with deadly precision even while stone drunk.
-- "Jacques" -- Michael is a singer with a voice that can
turn a solid steel bridge girder into pudding. He is an experienced actor,
whose roles include Jim in the award-winning musical Big River and
Iggy in the recently released film, Nothin'
2 Lose. Michael is also a loving husband and father, so back off,
and he spends a lot of time helping and inspiring kids in his community through
the Boys and Girls Club. Michael is also a surprisingly good improvisational
pianist, and his smile is a registered trademark.
