It’s not often an actor likes to hear the word rejected, but in this instance, I’ll make an exception.

Rejected Pictures is my new production company, created to showcase my screenwriting skills and hopefully entertain those with an off-beat sense of humour such as myself.

The first project is a web-based sitcom called ‘Functional Rejects’ in which I play long-time homeless man ‘London Knight’, who finds himself with a roof over his head as he inserts himself into the lives of old school-friends Harry & Josh, much to their chagrin.

Originally intended as a 6-episode series, covid had other plans, however, we were still able to film and edit 5-episodes, which you can find online at very soon.

Transitioning into movies

Posted Leave a commentPosted in News

Transition (2019) is a low-budget local film, created and shot in Tyne and Wear.

I won the role of Mark Matheson, a poor man’s Sam Wheat, who is taken from the love of his life in his prime.  He’s not going to let a little thing like death step in his way of helping his fiance through this difficult transition, whether as a ghost or some form of mental illness (I’ll let you decide).

Available to stream on Amazon Prime.

Feature Film: Ed and Dave

Posted Leave a commentPosted in News

“Ed and Dave” is a comedy road trip movie that follows the lives of two young men. After being dumped, hopefully for the last time, they set out to find their ultimate perfect women. With hysterical mishaps along the way, can these two imbeciles find their holy grail?

This project is currently seeking funding. Watch this space for further progress.

I’m Back!

So like Arnold Schwarzenegger in the new Terminator movie “I’m back!”

I’ve been away from the acting world for a little while but I have returned and hungry to work again.

I have a few potential projects in the pipeline and of course will keep you all informed on my progress.

As always I thank you for your support and for now it’s “Hasta la vista baby”.

Happy New Year

Wishing everyone that has supported and followed me thus far a very happy new year and hoping 2013 brings you everything you deserve!

In February of this new year I have been cast in a short film called ‘Captor’ in which I play a man held captive and being forced through the snowy woods of Germany.

Well hopefully Germany, with 3 locations in mind, including Scotland I am hoping the director picks Germany for the back drop to this short calling card which will be entered into festivals and competitions throughout 2013.

Will keep you posted.

All the best.


Steps For Success

I can now be seen as the stiff upper lipped Richard Hannay in the Hitchcock spoofed “The 39 Steps”.

It will be performed for 3 days at Infinity Bar & Entertainment Suite this November.

“This is Patrick Barlow’s Olivier Award winning stage adaptation, based on John Buchan’s gripping whodunit – memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1935 – is now in its fourth year at the Criterion Theatre in the West End.

Nothing has been cut from this hilarious version of Britain’s most spell-binding thriller – legendary scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the death-defying (or nearly!) finale at the London Palladium!

With four actors playing a minimum of one hundred and thirty-nine roles, it’s the most astonishing theatrical tour de force of the year.”

Searching For Doctor Branovic

Posted Leave a commentPosted in News

Come and support me in my next outing as the recovering suicidal Joe Tyler in David Tristram’s comedy ‘Searching For Doctor Branovic’, sequel to the hilarious ‘Forget-Me-Knot’.

It will be performed for 3 days at The Customs House in South Shields starting Monday 21st February 2011.

“Emma Tyler mourns the sudden and unexpected death of her husband, Joe.

But all is not as it seems and, deep in the bowels of a nearby hospital, something stirs.

Enter Detective Inspector Monroe – a man who knows a thing or two about the unexpected. Last memorably seen in “Forget-Me-Knot”, the grumpy, beleaguered detective soon finds himself right in the middle of another mystery which threatens to unhinge his sanity.

How did Joe manage to walk out of his own post-mortem? Where is the mysterious Doctor Branovic? How did the toaster get dented on both sides? Why has Monroe got a hole in his right hand? And, most crucially of all, does Emma Tyler really own a cat?

Throughout this highly unusual romp, the audience often know far more than the characters. But can they possibly see what’s coming?”
