Scroll down for acting clips. As of August 2019, I am SAG-AFTRA "eligible" and would welcome AEA. Profiles are available on Casting Network, Actors Access and Backstage.
Professional representation is, at present, ONLY with a leading specialist in Commercials (see sidebar to your right).
In the past 6 years, since I started acting and singing, I have worked (clean shaven, stubbled or full-bearded) in more than 80 productions that include feature films, prime time national television, short movies for film festivals and live stage theater from off-off-Broadway to top-level Broadway (Grandfather in Ragtime On Ellis Island).
They include featured roles in a promotional video for Mariah Carey, national Commercials (conflicts on request) and co-hosting of national television holiday specials. I also am known as top-level Real Beard Santa Joe and Founder/CEO of Real Beard Santas of America
BEHOLD - Here's a few seconds from a recent short film during which a newly arrived skeptic has demanded "to speak to the manager" but He is not accustomed to having His authority questioned.
RENEGADE DARLINGS is a full-length feature film shot at a semi-closed Cape Cod Motel. Dick, the off-season manager, with his own shady past, knows just what is happening when the first of a strange pair of young women come asking about a room.
Later that night, the girls are settled in - and Dick knocks on their door.
Dick tells the girls his own story - or at least the story he told the police back in West Virginia
A NEW AGE - shot mostly in Korean at YouTube's Studio in Chelsea, is a retro alt-history series that examines the reunion of South Korea and thinly disguised "Kingdom" of North Korea. I channel Walter Cronkite announcing the merger to a stunned USA audience. (Sorry about the sound - this is the clip they supplied me).
GRANDPA DEALS FROM ASSISTED LIVING - and name sake grandson (the 3rd) drops by to help with distribution.
NIGHT FALLS FAST - a haunted-looking, silent woman in wet clothes has wandered into a dive bar on the Jersey Shore. The bar's standard garrulous old drunk tries to connect.
