Sugar Released May 6

Sugar Released May 6

Posted by on May 6, 2014 in Blog |

At long last, Sugar, a moving film about youth homelessness, is coming out on DVD, iTunes and VUDU on May 6. If you didn’t have the opportunity to attend one of these screenings, here’s your chance to have it for your own. I understand HULU and Amazon will have it shortly after May 6, and then on June 4 you can find it for rental on Cable VOD, across Cox, Comcast and Verizon FIOS. Based on true events, Sugar is the story of a young girl coping with PTSD on the streets of Venice, California. She survives on the fringes of society with her outcast friends, running from the torments of her past. Her new world begins to crumble when her uncle finds her through a social worker, forcing her to confront the demons she’s been trying to escape for the past two years. Sugar takes a realistic look at what forces so many of our youth on to the streets and what they go through to survive. It is not a story of redemption, it is a story of reality. I share the screen with Shenae Grimes (90210, Degrassi), Corbin Bleu (High School Musical, DWTS 2013), Marshall Allman (True Blood, Blue Like Jazz, Hostage), Angus Macfadyen (Braveheart, Saw 3, We Bought a Zoo), and Nastassja Kinski (Cat People, Tess, Saviour.) Have you seen it? What do you...

Sugar Starts Screening Nov. 22

Sugar Starts Screening Nov. 22

Posted by on Nov 9, 2013 in Blog |

I’m thrilled to announce my next film, Rotimi Rainwater’s “Sugar,” is coming out on Nov. 22. I play Bishop in the film, the voice of reason for Sugar, a runaway youth who becomes homeless on the streets of Los Angeles. I’m told the film has a limited release and will be screening for a week at the Downtown Independent (251 South Main Street, Los Angeles, Calif.), starting on Friday, Nov. 22. Screenings will continue throughout November and December. This film is a labor of love for Rotimi, who himself was homeless not long after serving in the military. His focus with this film is to increase awareness of homelessness, including how many young people are homeless today. The “Sugar” team chose November as it is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month and they hope, through partnering with several national level organizations, sharing the film will spread the world about homeless issue. What’s particularly important about the release date is it is during “Homelessness and Hunger Week,” which features events and volunteer efforts from organizations and non-profits around the country. Many of these organizations will use “Sugar” to increase of awareness. You can keep up on the screenings at the movie’s website, www.thesugarmovie.com. This site also includes information on youth homelessness and offers information on the producers’ campaign to feed 10,000 homeless youth. If you get a chance to see it, please let me know what you think!...

Wes to be Honored at the Dreamcatcher Foundation Gala

Posted by on Oct 13, 2013 in Blog |

I’m excited to share that the Dreamcatcher Charitable Foundation is honoring me this year with a Dreamcatcher Award on Oct. 24 in Hamilton, Ontario at their celebrated Annual Gala. I’m in amazing company, with five other highly talented artists also being recognized. The Dreamcatcher Charitable Foundation, located in Canada, provides support to the Aboriginal community through grants to individuals with a goal of developing youth as future leaders. For nine years now the Foundation has provided resources to First Nations communities across Canada. They help fund things like sports, recreation, arts, culture, health and education. In addition to assisting youth (a service near and dear to my heart), they also assist adults in receiving the proper care and assistance they deserve to achieve dreams they would otherwise not be able to realize. The Gala will take place at the Hamilton Convention Centre by Carmen’s in Hamilton. Other amazing folks in attendance include our hosts, Lorne Cardinal and Michelle Thrush, and performances by Shawn McQuiller from Kool and the Gang. Here is what the Gala folks say: Other guests include Ludacris (singer, rapper, actor) as a guest of honour and presenter, plus Adam Beach, Susan Aglukark, Sass Jordan, Andrea Menard, Bronson Pelletier, Emmanuel Lewis, Gil Birmingham, Doug Gilmour, Wendel Clark, Taboo from Black Eyed Peas and many more! This year we will once again be honoring six worthy individuals with our Dreamcatcher Awards for their outstanding contributions in their fields of endeavor: Wes Studi (Arts and Culture), Jesse Smith (Sports), Suzie Miller (Education), Dr. Greg Frazer (Health) and the two Dreamcatcher Lifetime Achievement awards will be presented to Stan Jonathan and one in honor of Jay Silverheels.
