It's official...in more ways then one. Michael Gross is now attached to our film in the lead role of "JOHN", the father, and on another note, Mark and I are married! Happy Halloween! I love this day. It has way too many good things going on!
In all honesty, if you haven't checked out Michael's bio, you should. Here are a few things he's shared with me, that I think will warm your hearts and you'll see why we couldn't have cast a better man for the role!
Michael shared with me, over a lunch meeting, that he and his wife had taken care of a family member with Alzheimer's for ten years. We always knew that the people who would be most attached to the project, would feel connected to it and it's true. Michael has been a great asset even preparing for our eventual shoot with notes about his character deepening even further then I ventured to go. I can't wait to see what he does!
His manager, Richard Kerner, shared with me that Michael has an affinity toward darker roles. Thank goodness for that!
Look for more awesome "Michael Gross" moments as this adventure continues...
