Originally unable to get a reading, he was recommended for the part by Melanie Griffith (then married to Bauer).

Instead, he made "little movies" like Dominick and Eugene (which earned him standing as an actor's actor) and Field of Dreams (whose success still surprises him).

Sheree J. Wilson

Appearing in the hit series Dallas for five seasons playing opposite Patrick Duffy, and then for the entire eight year run of Walker, Texas Ranger opposite Chuck Norris. Currently, Ms. Wilson has starred and produced two feature films, Easy Rider: The Ride Back, a prequel to the cult favorite movie Easy Rider, and The Gundown. She also co-produced a zombie/comedy called Dug Up.

While studying for her degree in fashion merchandising and business, Sheree secretly vied for a career in show business. As with many actors, that 'lucky break' came shortly after graduation in 1981 while working in Denver on a fashion shoot. One of the photographers thought Sheree was the model, and introduced her to Vicki Light, head of The Light Company. Vicki in turn introduced her to Wilhelmina, the modeling agenCY from New York, who signed her on the spot. Sheree promptly moved to Manhattan and within eighteen months, had appeared in over thirty commercial campaigns for Clairol, Sea Breeze, Keri-Lotion and Maybelline. Her print work ran in such popular magazines as Mademoiselle, Glamour and Redbook.

After three years of modeling, Sheree's agent, Vicki Light, called her with an audition in a feature film, urging her to move to Los Angeles. She won the starring role, opposite Louise Lasser, Brian James and Reed Burney, in "Crimewave", a 1984 black comedy directed by Sam Raimi. Three days after that film wrapped, she was cast in "Velvet," an ABC/Aaron Spelling MOW/series pilot, in which she played a female "James Bond" character opposite Shari Belafonte. Within the next year, she had a lead with Tim Robbins in "Fraternity Vacation", a summer comedy in which she played an intellectual beauty who was the object of everyone's desire.

Producers began to take notice of this dynamic newcomer to Hollywood, and soon she starred in the 1985 CBS television miniseries "Kane & Abel," with Peter Strauss. This immediately led to "Our Family Honor," a CBS drama about Irish cops vs. the Mafia, in which she starred with Ray Liotta, Michael Madsen and Eli Wallach. Her career continued to grow including "News at Eleven" with Martin Sheen. And then, in 1986, television producer Leonard Katzman called Sheree to talk about a part he thought was tailor-made for someone with her classic beauty and sassy, fun-loving, energetic nature.

The role was that of 'April Stevens' on the CBS mega-hit series "Dallas." For five seasons she played a brainy, wealthy femme fatale. Her character went from being one of the most powerful women in Dallas and J.R. Ewing's nemesis, to being one of the warmest characters in town, eventually marrying Bobby Ewing, the show's ultimate good guy. Ultimately, April Stevens was gunned down during her honeymoon in Paris. Bowing out with a bang, Sheree's performance earned her the "Soap Opera Digest Award" for Best Death Scene.

In fact, Sheree was pregnant and wanted to leave in order to fully devote herself to motherhood.

At the end of 1992, she signed to do the lead female role of 'Alex Cahill' in "Walker, Texas Ranger," opposite Chuck Norris, which ran for eight seasons.

The daughter of two IBM executives, Sheree was born in Minnesota and moved to Colorado at the age of seven, where she learned to ride horses. Her superb equestrian skills won her first place riding cutting horses in the 1995 National Multiple Sclerosis Rodeo. Her love of horses continues to this day - as she recently rescued a retired racehorse and in 2008 helped establish the "White Bridle Humane Society", a horse rescue equine therapy non-profit organization in Texas of which she serves as vice-president.

Currently, Sheree resides in Los Angeles.

Initially he was told "you are too tall" (he keeps that letter readily available in his living-room and often refers to it with a humble smile).

Early in his career, Ed had performed many of his own stunts such as being run over by a big rig, flying on wires, fight scenes, being tossed, thrown & dropped great distances, and crashing through the windshield of a moving vehicle.

Other popular films to Ed Gale's credit include; Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, Mom & Dad Save the World, and the Christmas Holiday Hit: the Polar Express.

Out of Costume, Ed has played some rather notable "human" roles as well; "Hank Tarver" (The District), "Oscar" (3rd Rock from the Sun), "Stan" (Santa, Jr.), "Benson" (Call Me Claus), "Mr. Larry Briggs" (The Hughley's), "Jimmy" (Just Shoot Me), and "Baby Jesus" (Grounded for Life).

Cliff Moylan

Cliff Moylan hails from Boston, Massachusetts. Born to an Irish father from County Clare and an Irish-American mother from County Detroit. In a twenty two year span as a Massachusetts resident he hung his Kangol in Back Bay, The Fenway, Dorchester, Plymouth, Falmouth, Hyannis and Lynn. Although Cliff cites all his former haunts for being instrumental in honing his expertise and fluency in sarcasm it is Lower Mills, a region of Dorchester, that he holds closest to his cold, black heart.

Cliff's love of film and acting started at very early age. As young as eight years old he would sneak out of bed at night and watch all the movies he wasn't suppose to while his mother was sound asleep. Midnight Cowboy, Taxi Driver, Dirty Harry and Clockwork Orange being some of his favorites. As a Catholic school student it was The Exorcist that was his least favorite and the one movie he still doesn't feel comfortable talking about today. Cliff's love of foreign film began when his father took him to Kendall Square Cinema to see Cinema Paridiso where he didn't cry and you can't prove it. Some other foreign favorites being My Life as a Dog, Europa Europa and Antonia's Line. If The Exorcist was when Cliff's insomnia began it was certainly when Dad took him to see The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez that it ended.

Cliff's early acting performances were usually before an audience of his classmates with an encore usually before a dean or principal. When possible Cliff also performed on The Red Line (the subway running from Ashmont to Alewife station's) to glowing reviews. It was his impersonation of Charlton Heston in The Planet of the Apes that won him the most acclaim delighting commuters and strap hangers from all walks of life.

Cliff's early introduction to The Method was a five year period where he thought he was the fourth Beastie Boy.

Educated at both The Atlantic Theater Company Acting School and The William Esper Studio, the last five years have brought significant growth for Cli! both professionally and creatively. He has swapped lines with the likes of John Turturro and Giancarlo Esposito, while being directed by the likes of Steven Soderbergh, Jody Foster, Robin Wright and Steven Zaillian.

With an acting style he describes as an easy blend of Tom Sizemore, Carroll O'Connor, Gary Oldman and Ray Liotta, Cliff is welcoming what comes next. Whether it be playing a young father, a deep sea fisherman, an Irish gangster or a any facet of law enforcement Cliff will bring his trademark seriousness and his love of acting.

Cliff Moylan currently lives in The Lower East Side with his roommate, Hagler, a male Olde English Bulldog puppy named after the great middleweight champion.

His pulsating enthusiasm to perfect his craft, led to further classes at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art), and to further workshops and explorations into various acting techniques.

Over the span of his impressive career to date, Mem has achieved no less than one hundred Film and Television credits. His dedication to his craft and continually expanding Filmography, has resulted in building a formidable Fan-Base across Europe and also in the US.

After receiving their own video camera for Christmas, Chad and his brother Evan set forth to shoot over 75 homemade movies while growing up, most of which he "starred" in and "directed."

Although he had always loved creating stories it wasn't until he had almost finished college and after he had just seen "the latest vampire movie" that he actually sat down to write his first screenplay ("Night Class") simply because he wanted to try and do better. Although it was never produced and Chad never developed the script further it did trigger him to write more. Chad's next screenplay, a campy horror project entitled "Daylight's End", which he co-wrote with his brother, went on to place fairly high in the Project Greenlight competition just a few short days after a rough draft was completed.

Henry Hill

Henry Hill was an FBI informant whose life was immortalized by the 1990 movie Goodfellas, where he was played by Ray Liotta. Hill grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where he admired local mafiosos, including Paul Vario, a capo in the Luchesse crime family. In 1955, Hill began to warm up to Paul Vario by running some errands for the mafioso at Vario's meat stores, and eventually went on to be among Vario's trusted associates. Hill became close friends with Tommy DeSimone, another young up-and-comer in the crime family. Both were mentored by Jimmy "The Gent" Burke, an underworld legend known for being a good earner. The trio of friends were entrusted by Vario to steal trucks, plan heists (including the infamous 1978 Lufthansa Air heist) and killings. Hill was never an actual mafioso himself, but an associate of the Mafia. The Mafia has a strict rule of accepting only full blooded Italians as made guys; Hill is Sicilian by his mother's side but Irish by his father's side. Burke was Irish. Only DeSimone was full Sicilian. After beating up a non-paying gambler whose sister happened to work at the F.B.I., Hill was sentenced to 10 years in jail. There he made connections with drug dealers. He was released after serving 4 years. Hill used his prison narcotics contacts to shift large amounts of cocaine from Brooklyn to Pittsburgh, even though Vario forbid anyone in the crew to deal drugs. As his operation grew, so did Hill's own addiction to the drug. Eventually, Vario found out about Hill's drug operation and DeSimone's murder of a made guy. DeSimone was set up by Vario into believing he would be a made guy, and on what he thought would be his inauguration day, he was killed himself. When Hill realized he was next on the hit list, he, his wife Karen, and their two children tried to go on the run. But they were captured. He then entered the Witness Protection Program in 1980. Hill's testimony was important in the convictions of Burke, Vario and the rest of the organization. Two years later, he was thrown out of the protection program for blowing his cover. Later on, Hill and his wife got divorced. Karen was awarded custody of their two children, Greg and Gina. Crime reporter Nicholas Pileggi contacted Hill about writing a book about his life story. Their collaboration resulted in the book Wiseguy, published in 1986, on which the film Goodfellas is based. Henry Hill now lives on the West Coast.

Bishop Brigante

Born in Toronto, Canada, Bishop Brigante never saw himself acting. Originally, better known as a recording artist, Brigante's early days were dominated by music. However, by chance he found himself enrolled in a performing arts school at age 13. It was there he showed the first hints of acting talent and was encouraged by his teachers and peers to pursue the art. But after several failed attempts to find legitimate representation, Brigante was turned off.

Focusing on music indirectly benefited Brigante's later acting work as he became arguably one of Canada's best rap performers, exciting crowds from coast to coast on several national tours. Music also gave Brigante his first moments in front of the camera as he conceptualized award winning music videos for his songs. It wasn't until a cold call from acclaimed director Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smoking Aces, The Grey) that he seriously considered acting as a career path.

The call was to cast Brigante in the 2002 blockbuster Narc starring Ray Liotta and Jason Patric. He'd go on to play Eugene 'Deacon' Sheps, A drug dealing and gun wielding missing piece of the puzzle, to solve a cold case murder investigation of an under cover police officer.

In 2003, Brigante joined the cast of the TV series Platinum, appearing in all episodes as "Two Way". When John Ridley (Three Kings, Undercover Brother) met Brigante, he asked him who his favorite rapper was at the time. Without hesitation, Brigante went on to explain who that artist was and why. It was the detail and his undeniable charisma that prompted Ridley and the show's writers to create a character for Brigante to play on the series. The character was the go to guy for information, and the head A&R of the fictional "Sweetback Records" run by Kirk "Sticky Fingaz" Jones and Jason George.

The next year, he took the biggest leap of his acting career by joining a stage production of A Clockwork Orange. Landing the lead role of Alex DeLarge, Brigante impressed audiences for four weeks and tested himself in new ways every evening.

After signing a record deal in 2008 with Bodog Music, Brigante released the hit single "It's Fo Twenty" featuring legendary west coast singer Nate Dogg. The song would go on to gain heavy radio rotation in Canada and reassert Brigante as a major player in the Canadian hip hop scene.

After a five year hiatus, Brigante landed a role as the protagonist "Flip" in a short film called Random Walk which also starred Devon Sawa (Final Destination) & Serinda Swan (Breakout Kings).

The next year, AUX TV commissioned Brigante to produce & host their television show Ultimate MC. Travelling across Canada to find the best battle rapper in the country, Brigante provided both live event hosting as well as pointed cultural narration in each episode.

2011 brought new momentum as Brigante appeared in an episode of Against The Wall (Universal Cable). And the following year he landed lead roles in the upcoming 2013 feature film Evil Feed and TV movie Chupacabra vs. the Alamo (Sci Fi Network).
