Justin Motley...

Marcus Muhd as Amen Exodus

This is a perfect example of what we are looking for in a lead actor. Marcus is naturally strong, confident, focused, and smart. The perfect mix of what Amen Exodus needs to be. 

Jose Rosete as Boss Jay

This guy has energy! He perfectly encapsulates the type of energy and attitude were looking for, for the Boss Jay character. Marcus definitely took a note from Captain Howard, in Bad Boys 2. You want to compete you got to bring the heat!

This is what's called capturing the moment and truly hitting the mark with every swing! If you're not coming like this then you never showed up... Congratulations to our winner, John W. Harris

Andrienne has a great attitude. She has over 8 years experience as an actress and model and crushed it on her audition. Playing a sleazy ales women’s is easy and Adrienne nailed it.
