Interview w/ Paxton Booth | AfterBuzzTV Mini Spotlight On

Host Timothy Michael interviews Paxton Booth!

Young and daring actor Paxton Booth is making waves in the entertainment industry through his philanthropic pursuits and work as a series regular on Disney Channel’s Coop & Cami Ask The World. Paxton stars alongside castmates Ruby Rose Turner, Dakota Lotus, Albert Tsai, Olivia Sanabia and Rebecca Metz. The show follows a brother-sister duo who make almost all of their decisions — both mundane and madcap — by crowdsourcing opinions from the millions of followers on their online channel ‘Would You Wrather.’ Paxton plays ‘Ollie Wrather,’ the fearless and enthusiastic younger brother of the duo and oftentimes the test-pilot for the more wild stunts (that Paxton carries out himself) of their online show. The popular Disney Channel series recently premiered its second season on October 5th, 2019. Although young, Paxton is no newcomer to gracing TV screens. As a talkative toddler with a love for being in front of the camera, he began his professional acting career at just 2 ½ years old near his hometown of Ventura, CA. He has since made appearances in dozens of national commercials and landed several guest star roles on popular TV shows including NBC’s Emmy-award winning sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, ABC’s The Real O’Neals, Amazon’s The Romanoffs, TV Land’s Teachers, and ABC’s unscripted series The Toy Box as a judge. While on set, Paxton never shies away from an exciting stunt thrown his way. Although he doesn’t have any formal stunt training, he has carried out several stunts on the set of Coop & Cami with the supervision of a stunt coordinator. Paxton’s fearless nature translates both on and off set, as he has been riding BMX bikes since the age of 3 – without ever learning to ride a bike with training wheels. Racing his BMX bike through skateparks and pump tracks has helped Paxton as an actor by increasing his body awareness. While, his love of automobiles also runs the course of a smaller, plastic track – with his collection of over 1,200 Hot Wheels. Having spent countless hours at car shows and museums, he has developed an immersive knowledge of classic cars, noting details on every single one of his Hot Wheels toys. Paxton has recently served as the youngest judge to-date throughout the ongoing 2019 Hot Wheels Legends Tour – alongside Jay Leno, Adam Carolla, etc. Beyond car museums, Paxton has an admiration for the arts and loves visiting both classic and street art museums. He also has a fascination with less artistically praised ‘50s black and white horror films, such as Plan 9 from Outer Space. Captivated by the horror genre, Paxton deeply admires the directorial style of Tim Burton and dreams of being cast in one of his films. Paxton also loves listening to ‘80s rock music, often jamming out to David Bowie. As a fashionable youngster, he admires Bowie’s standout style and strives to match his confidence of wearing whatever he wants. Paxton often advocates that fashion should not have gender labels. Eventually, he would love to have his own clothing line of gender neutral eccentric styles that can ultimately help prevent bullying for young kids. Outside of Paxton’s passions for art and activities, he loves getting hands-on with philanthropic pursuits. He actively supports charitable causes surrounding animal rescue (such as the two rescue pit bulls he grew up with, and the local LA animal rescue Paw Works), bringing happiness to other children that are ill/underprivileged, and spreading the importance of environmental awareness. He hopes to use his growing platform and voice to speak up for these philanthropic causes, the arts and promoting individuality at any age.

Interview w/ Michelle Danner | AfterBuzzTV Mini Spotlight On

There aren’t many people who can point to a career full of success as a performer, teacher, storyteller, entrepreneur, and expert.  But Michelle Danner can.

The legendary acting teacher and co-founder of the Edgemar Center for the Arts and the Los Angeles Acting Conservatory, Danner’s also now well-established as a successful feature film director.  Her latest completed film, “Bad Impulse,” is a psychological thriller about family secrets and modern technology, starring Sonya Walger, Grant Bowler, and Paul Sorvino; and she’s set to begin shooting “The Runner,” an action thriller and true-life coming of age story about a troubled teenager forced to go undercover to expose a drug kingpin.

A dedicated mom (with one son who is an aspiring filmmaker), Danner still has her “day job” – overseeing the faculty of the Los Angeles Acting Conseratory, and conducting her weekly acting class. Danner’s list of students has included Christian Slater, Salma Hayak, Gerard Butler, Seth McFarlane, Penelope Cruz, Chris Rock, Gabrielle Union, and Zooey Deschanel.  A longtime student of legendary acting teachers like Stella Adler and Uta Hagen, Danner’s eclectic approach (which she calls “The Golden Box”) allows actors the freedom to employ a wide variety of techniques.

Raised in a show business family and with a deep appreciation for all of the performing arts, Danner also continues to run the boutique “Cinema at the Edge” film festival (scheduled for February 2020), and is currently preparing to direct a new one-person play, Bonnie Culver’s “Norris,” starring Anne Archer, based on the memoirs of the widow of writer Norman Mailer.

Simply put, there’s almost no one in the business who knows as much about acting and success as Michelle Danner – and her continued success in multiple creative fields makes her one of the most successful women working in the industry today.

Chad Michael Collins Interview | AfterBuzz TV Mini Spotlight

Chad Michael Collins’ career and work ethic can be defined in two words: action packed. Chad is most recognized for his starring role as ‘Gunnery Sgt. Branden Beckett’ in Sony’s guerilla warfare film franchise “Sniper.” The series is set to film it’s fifth installment this Fall 2019. Additionally, Chad will star as one of the lead characters, ‘Alex,’ in Activision’s newest installment of their hugely popular military first-person-shooter franchise “Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare.” Releasing October 25th, the highly anticipated video game will be available to play on all major consoles and PC.

The new game will feature familiar characters from the original trilogy that sold over 100-million combined units worldwide, but gamers will also be able to play as Chad’s character ‘Alex’ throughout the entire single-player storyline. In order to create Activision’s most realistic and cinematic video game to date, Chad was filmed as ‘Alex’ in a full face-motion-performance capture and then voiced the character. He also trained with former Navy Seals to prepare for the high-resolution fighting scenes and mission segues featured within the game. Outside of the two major military-based franchises, Chad may also look familiar from his many successful sci-fi and thriller TV spots over the years. Recently, Chad has held recurring sci-fi roles on both Hulu’s series “Freakish” (alongside Liza Koshy) and BYU TV’s series “Extinct.” He has additionally made appearances in popular TV shows including: “Once Upon A Time” (playing Frankenstein’s Monster/Gerhart), “Two Broke Girls,” “MacGyver,” “CSI: Miami,” “CSI: New York,” “NCIS,” “90210,” “Blue Bloods,” “Castle,” “Bones” and more. His film credits include the action-horror-western “High Moon” (alongside Sean Patrick Flanery), as well as playing ‘Dr. Sloane’ in AMC Shudder Network’s “Creepshow” (tapping ‘The Walking Dead’ EP Greg Nicotero). While born and raised in upstate NY, Chad currently resides in LA. Outside of filming, Chad is a self-proclaimed weekend warrior. He loves to stay in shape by playing on his league basketball team and boxing. He is an avid reader of comic books, the fantasy genre, and loves to get lost in with Bernard Cornwell’s collection of historical fiction. Chad also enjoys getting his game on with World of Warcraft, Dungeons & Dragons, retro 8-and-16-bit throwbacks, and Magic: The Gathering. #Celebrity #Discussion #Interview Make sure to subscribe to AfterBuzz! – http://youtube.com/afterbuzztv

Interview w/ Jason Stuart | AfterBuzzTV Mini Spotlight On

You’ve seen Jason Stuart before, whether you recognize him from his roles on TV shows from “My Wife and Kids” to Judd Apatow’s “Love,” his decades of prominence as one of the first openly gay stand-up comedians (he came out on “Geraldo”), or from his masterful character work in dozens of feature films (including “Tangerine” and “The Birth of a Nation.”) He’s “that guy” – the one who can slip into any role, in any genre, and make his mark, with over 150 credits that are testament to his talent, professionalism, and persistence.

Now, Jason documents his long and curious career in his new memoir, Shut Up, I’m Talking: Coming Out in Hollywood and Making it to the Middle from CCB Publishing. It’s part of a whirlwind year for him, which also includes a weekly radio gig with Dash Radio (“Riffing with Jason Stuart”); roles in notable indie dramas such as “The Infiltrators” and the upcoming “Immortal” (with Samm Levine and Dylan Baker); comedy turns in his new web series “Smothered” (which he co-created with Match Hara) and the feature “DIVOS!” with Marisa Jaret Winokur and Nicole Sullivan; and the starring role in the dramatic short “Hank,” which won the Best LGBTQ Short at this year’s Los Angeles International Film Festival. Lastly, Jason play the voice of “The Dispatcher” in the science fiction thriller “The Fare” airing this fall.

Born in the Bronx and raised in Los Angeles, Jason Stuart has been working professionally as an actor and comedian for thirty years, ultimately making a name for himself when a personal decision – to finally publically acknowledge his identity as a gay man – gave him some prominence in an era when many performers remained closeted. Nearly twenty five years later, Jason admits that being gay is only a small part of his identity, and he has transcended any sort of label through his increasingly impressive range of dramatic work far removed from his success as a stand-up comedian. Acting alongside Armie Hammer and Jackie Earle Haley as one of the brutal plantation owners in Nate Parker’s searing drama “The Birth of a Nation” showed the world that Stuart’s talent is formidable.

That’s not to say that he isn’t hilarious – and still evolving as a performer and as a human being hoping to make the world a better place. Talking with Jason Stuart offers the perspective of a master of his craft and insider who knows all too well what it means to be “that guy” that every project needs.

Interview w/ EBIE | AfterBuzzTV Mini Spotlight On

Host Jaimi Gray interviews Ebie.

Reflecting on the shocking and tragic death of Nipsey Hussle, Eazy-E’s daughter, EBIE, has released a cover and visuals for “Double Up,” as an outlet to her grief and tribute to his life in Los Angeles.

Having lost her father young, she’s constantly heard from his fans that listening to Eazy-E and NWA somehow keeps him alive in their hearts. She finally understood this as she dove deeper into Nipsey’s music and legacy; feeling deeply connected to his modern day stories of a Crenshaw gangster turned businessman and father.

As a singer and songwriter herself, she was introduced to the rapper through the local hip hop community and had been building a friendship based on mutual respect that represented the past and future of Westside rap culture. EBIE had been following Nipsey’s career for the past few years and felt a sense of pride in seeing him finally having the larger audiences of music embrace him and had been hoping for her moment to collaborate one day. With her first single, “Heart Hurts,” aimed for release at the end of June, her expression of feelings have just begun and we can’t wait to share it all with you.

A Midwesterner at heart, Zach spent his teens playing football and dabbling in high school theatre, ultimately playing for Indiana University until an injury ended his NFL dreams. While the arts continued to be a hidden passion, upon graduating he entered the Doctoral program at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. While there, he was also attending underground comedy shows and joined local theaters groups, which ultimately let to the decision to shift gears and take a leave of absence from his schooling to pursue acting full time. To fund his goal of moving to LA, he began selling Quickbooks software door to door in the Chicago suburbs and finally made the move west on New Years Eve 2011.

Acting classes helped him get acclimated to LA and meet upcoming directors that lead to work on shorts and indie films, but he also found that cultivating relationships have been the most effective way to get roles, finally landing CURVATURE in 2017 via his friendship with Producer Andrew Levitas. That collaboration led to a co-starring role opposite Kate Beckinsdale and Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje in FARMING, which premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival and subsequently landed him his role on THE WHITE CROW. 

His greatest role to date has been that of husband and father to his toddler son. An outdoorsman at heart, Zach spends his downtime enjoying his newly adopted hometown of LA with Laker games, hiking, skiing, practicing his scuba diving skills and enjoying nature with his growing family.
