Is there a single frame of the movie “The Shining” that doesn’t immediately induce terror? With good cause too as the Kubrick film is not just considered a horror masterpiece, but a cinematic masterpiece in general. It is with particular excitement and joy that we announce our teaming up with Danny Lloyd! Whether it’s images of “REDRUM,” riding a big wheel through hotel hallways or strategically walking backwards through a snowy hedge maze, Danny Lloyd’s naturalistic portrayal of Danny Torrance helped make “The Shining” that much more intense and that much more suspenseful – because we, the audience, get to experience this supernatural horror through the eyes of a very believable and innocent child.
Emergence Talent will be bringing Danny to some exciting conventions in 2016, so keep looking here to stay informed!
Hawthorne James is an iconic and memorable actor, most beloved for his portrayals of Big Red in “The Five Heartbeats” and Sam the bus driver in Speed. He is also the intimidating villain in “Heaven’s Prisoner” with Alec Baldwin, Mary Stuart Masterson, Eric Roberts and Teri Hatcher.
He is a very active member of the stage community, though he is called back to the screens, big and small, often. More than just an actor, he is also an active producer and director. Be sure to catch him now in “A Christmas Wedding,” with Vivica A. Fox, which came out only a month ago.
Hawthorne has lent his talents to the films such as “Se7en,” “The Doors,” “The Color Purple,” “Amistad” and “Snoop Dogg’s Hood of Horror.” If you’re a fan of urban legends, be sure to find him with young Amy Smart, Ron Livingston, Christopher Masterson and Christine Taylor in “Campfire Tales.”
As impressive as his film resume is, he’s appeared in even more television including episodes of “Stargate SG-1,” “The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.,” “Rosewekk,” “Charmed,” “Carnivale,” “ER,” “NYPD Blue” and “Hill Street Blues.” He also recently reprised his role of Sam, somewhat spoofing himself in the Comedy Central series “Workaholics.”
We are so proud to welcome an actor who has been such an important staple of not only great genre productions but also simply television in and of itself. Steven Williams has appeared in well over 100 titles, ranging from appearing as a regular cast member on television shows to appearing in some of the most iconic films of all time. I don’t mind breaking the forth wall and saying that, as a native of Chicago, I’m exicted to add a client who is a cast member of one of the most famous movies ever shot in my fair city – “The Blues Brothers” (pictured, right alongside John Candy).
His credits are far and wide. Not only did he appear in the opening segment of the Twilight Zone Movie, but he also portrayed Black Jack Savage in Disney’s “The 100 Lives of Black Jack Savage.” In the world of television, he is largely known for acting alongside a young Johnny Depp in 97 episodes of “21 Jump Street” (pictured left). He also played a vitally important and incredibly mysterious “man in black” character in in “The X-Files” series called Mr. X (pictured below). Other television credits include playing lead characters in “LA Heat” and “Linc’s,” as well as playing reoccurring characters in “Supernatural,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” “Dallas,” “Legacy,” “Booker” “The Equalizer.”
Recently, Steven appeared in the major motion picture release, “Jack the Giant Slayer” with Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci and the film “The Call” with Hallee Berry and Abigail Breslin.
We are excited to announce that we’ve added two of the most badass individuals working in Hollywood today to our already exciting roster of talent. This action-packed couple met on set of “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” where Jeff Pruitt was the stunt coordinator and Sophia Crawford played the Pink Ranger, Putty Patroller. In truth, however, they knew of each other’s work. The London-born Sophia was already making a name for herself in Hong Kong cinema and Jeff was setting himself out from the crowd as one of the few stunt performers using the eastern-style stunt performing and choreographing.
The two teamed up on multiple productions, but nothing more famously than on Joss Whedon’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” where Jeff served as stunt coordinator and 2nd unit director and Sophia was Sarah Michelle Gellar’s stunt double. If you watched the show and thought Buffy was tough, you should see the real deal. Check out the video below of the raw set footage of Sophia, shot by Jeff:
Between the two of them, their talents have been featured in well over 100 productions including Batman Returns, Scream 2 & 3, Anchorman, Roswell, Black Dynamite, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Mission Impossible III, Witchboard 2, Ghoules 4Charmed and many others.
Josie Davis takes a moment to answer questions from fans!
We are so excited to be able to work with such a massive television icon. Alan Thicke appeared as the star of all 167 episodes of the series “Growing Pains.”
What you may not know is that he is also responsible for some of the most iconic sounds of ’80s television including theme music for “The Facts of Life,” “Diff’rent Strokes,” and “Wheel of Fortune.”
Of course, Thicke is a face we’re all familiar with. In addition to Growing Pains, he has another 81 screen acting credits to his name.
Of course, Thicke has remained active in front of the camera. Recently Thicke has logged credits in major titles such as “AlphaDog,” “Raising Helen,” “That’s My Boy,” “The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard.”
He is also an established talk show host and producer, hosting over 100 episodes of “The Alan Thicke Show” in the early ’80s and currently appearing in the Canadian late night talk show “The Hour.”
The latest talented actor to join the fastly growing Emergence Talent pool is Josie Davis! Josie is the perfect triple-threat: She’s talented, she’s beautiful and she’s a worker. Still young, she’s already accumulated 62 different acting titles, including over 100 episodes of “Charles in Charge,” where she played regular cast member Sarah Powell. She’s currently appearing in the TV Land series “Hollywood Heights.”
Josie seems to have found her way on nearly every significan telecision series over the past two decades – from “Baywatch” to “CSI” (NY and Miami), “Bones,” “Two and a Half Man,” “NCIS,” “Chuck” and “Burn Notice.”
She has also been a regular character on Aaron Spelling’s shows, “Beverly Hills 90210,” and “Titans.”
Her work in film as also vast, perhaps highlighted by her appearance opposite James Franco, Harry Dean Stanton and Mena Suvari in the Nic Cage-directed crime drama “Sonny.”
As usual though, she has a full docket of movies on IMDB with red, italicized parentheticals next to them… these are movies either shooting or about to be shot. So, keep an eye on Josie, as she continues to churn out new productions!
Of course, she’s more than just talented and gorgeous. She’s also funny, as evidenced by this great PSA she did for Funny or Die:
