Joshua Polizzi - Ross

Josh grew up just outside of Chicago in Zion, Illinois. He always had a love for films and when his career as a belly dancer didn't work out, he finally got enough balls to try it as an actor. He nailed his first audition and got the part. Soon Josh was heading into Chicago to catch classes and feel his way around. He would work an overnight job cleaning at a local college. After seeing the early morning planes heading west, he made a promise that he would be on one by the end of the year. He kept that promise, and he has been kicking around Los Angeles for 6 1/2 years working, training, learning, loving.

Christina July Kim - Jenny

Christina grew up in the Northeast Heights of Albuquerque, New Mexico. She first took a speech and drama class in 8th grade where she landed the role of Buttercup in her school's production of "The Princess Bride." She escaped racial prejudices through acting and found freedom of expression through the theatre. In high school, she continued to study acting and with the counsel of her high school drama teacher Diane Keyson, she decided to apply to the Bachelor of Fine Arts acting program at the University of Southern California. 1 semester before graduating from college, Christina got a great opportunity in Seoul, Korea and took a leave of absence from USC and worked as a radio DJ in Seoul. It was here that she learned to embrace her Korean heritage and culture. She returned to California 2 years later, graduated from USC in 2007 with her BFA in acting, and is now a working actor.   www.ChristinaJulyKim.com

Oto Brezina - Harold (Emmy Award Winner)

Oto’s entry of his acting presence dates back ten years ago. Initially, his first baby steps to feel out the waters lead him to working as a background extra in several major studio features. After these test runs, he stepped in to insignificant speaking roles with few lines and gradually to speaking ones in leading or supporting roles. He performs films of different genres and a variety of characters the best, especially those where a natural accent is part of the role. His triumph came just recently by winning an Emmy Award in PSA category by Academy for TV Arts and Sciences.
