“the cast does fine-grained detail work — Nelson especially. His dyspeptic, volatile, wounded performance somehow channels both Paul Giamatti and the young Jack Nicholson.” -ROGEREBERT.COM “terrific performance from Nelson as the emotionally volatile Gordie. Particularly effective in combining humor and menace in his portrayal to galvanizing effect.” — the hollywood reporter
CASEY ROSS is a dashingly handsome, impossibly modest, and surprisingly pale ginger-haired character actor based in the great city of Chicago. Hailing from historic Dodge City, Kansas (home of Wyatt Earp, Miss Kitty, and a McDonald's with a stagecoach in it), trained in Musical Theatre, raised on the comedy of Mel Brooks, and proudly descended from a family of shameless hams, Casey enjoys making people laugh, falling down in new and interesting ways, and writing in third person. He spent the last 5 years in Los Angeles (the one in California), working in several films, commercials, and television productions, none of which anyone has seen. He comes to Chicago to indulge once more in stage work, while still pursuing onscreen opportunities wherever they arise. In the mean time, you can find Casey annoying bartenders throughout the city, and begrudgingly listening to native Chicagoans lecture him on how "this is a mild winter. You ain't seen nothin' yet!"
