Booked The Blacklist (Again!)

26 Aug 2017 Bernard News

Just wrapped a fun role on The Blacklist! I’ll be appearing as “Matthew McClintock” in Episode 3 of Season 5. This is my second appearance on the show–met an untimely demise last time around. Awesome to be back working on a thrilling hit show with a warm and welcoming cast and crew! This episode has some remarkable Guest Stars and extremely cool plot twists!!! Tune in and catch all the drama (and a touch of comedy, too)!



I had the great honor of shooting for a week on AMC’s Turn: Washington’s Spies. The week was a little piece of heaven, and I cannot wait to relive every moment when it airs! This one is gonna be magic! More info soon!



Can’t wait to share more details soon! I am filming two days on a TV show created by some legends in the business. I will update this post with full details ASAP!

Very, very, excited!



***UPDATE: 11 January 2017***

I will be appearing in the season finale of The Deuce, staring Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco from TV scribes David Simon and George Pelecanos!

Just wrapped a very fun role on the upcoming feature, Landline, from the creative team behind 2014’s Obvious Child. The film stars Jenny Slate, Edie Falco, John Torturro, Jay Duplass and Abby Quinn. I worked with all of them! It was a dream. Gillian Robespierre directs from a screenplay she co-wrote with Elisabeth Holm.

I cannot wait to see the film!!!

Ecstatic to have joined The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for the cold opening on April 19, 2016! I play Civil War General Robert E. Lee!
Watch the clip below:

I am thrilled to announce that I will be playing Macbeth with some wonderful people in Ohio this summer. This is one of those dream roles, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have arrived at a place in my life where I can’t wait to dive right in. If you are in the Northeast Ohio area in August, I hope you will be able to attend. Tickets can be purchased here:

Much love and gratitude!!!!
