What's New


In the new noir indy, Can't Be Undone (now making the festival rounds), I play a disillusioned detective.


Film, Television, & Radio

In the SAG-AFTRA radio play of Dragnet, performed at the Gene Autry Museum, I played a gossipy mailman.

Here are a couple of clips from the show:

"Good Fit"


In Episode One of the new sci-fi comedy TV series, Other Space, I award a very special Nobel Prize to one of the characters on the space ship!

I play a character named Mr. Flint in this clip from the short film, "Vice," written and directed by Kieron Barry. My partner Lawrence (Harry S. Murphy) and I come to interview a prospective Presidential running mate (Jay O. Sanders):

I played railroad magnate Arnold Merriman in "Love Among the Ruins," the second episode of Mad Men's third season, working with series regulars Michael Gladis and Vincent Kartheiser:

Here's a montage of my moments in the "Celebrity" episode of Kath & Kim. I play opposite Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Jennifer Coolidge, and John Michael Higgins as a community theatre director who's auditioning actors for a musical. Three of them end up singing a rollicking version of a show tune that ends, literally, in fireworks!

"The Call," a short film in which I play the lead character (written, directed, shot, and edited by Thomas Richter), was the Winner of the John Sayles Award for Best Narrative Short at the Westcliffe Digital Film Festival in Westcliffe, Colorado. It also appeared in the New York International Independent Film Festival in LA and in the Santa Fe Film Festival, in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

"The Call" is the story of solitary telemarketer Ike Lundquist, whose humdrum existence is dramatically altered when, under the terms of a new Constitutional Amendment, he is required to perform a devastating"citizen's duty."
