The Reel Deal, the multi-platform reality show I’m casting, has just disclosed the list of celebs for our first season. These celebrities (all hyphenates themselves) will mentor and collaborate with up-and-coming actors, directors, composers, and screenwriters. Celeb-led teams will spend an intense week creating Oscar-worthy shorts all while under competitive pressure to finish first, best, and under-budget!
Our celebrity cast:
Dustin Diamond: Best known for his role as Screech — everyone’s favorite nerd — in the Saved by the Bell series, Diamond is also a seasoned director, writer, producer, and stand-up comedian.
Holly Fields: A prolific former child-star with an extensive resumé, Fields is also known for her singing as the frontwoman of the band Zoom and her own self-produced projects.
Judy Norton: Best known for her role as Mary Ellen on The Waltons, Norton has directed, written, produced, and starred in many productions on stage and on screen in her decades-long career.
Eric Roberts: This Oscar nominee is at the height of a highly prolific entertainment career, having appeared in nearly 300 titles, including The Expendables and The Dark Knight.
Tim Russ: Best known for his role as Lieutenant Commander Tuvok on Star Trek: Voyager, Russ is also a very busy director and screenwriter with over 80 television series under his belt.
Don “The Dragon” Wilson: A world-renowned kickboxer with 11 world championships to his name, Wilson has worked as stuntman and actor. As a producer, he has successfully turned a profit on 20 films.
Our host is Baywatch star David Chokachi whose energetic and comedic personality will charm our viewers, contestants, and the celebrity mentors on The Reel Deal.
