Ian Clarkson takes over role of “Dan Johnson” in Double Vision

Double Vision Writer/Producer/Director Terry R. Wickham is happy to announce he has cast Ian Clarkson to take over the role of “Dan Johnson” in Double Vision.

Wickham says, “The original actor that was set to play this character had something happen in his life that will prevent him from being available when we shoot in June.  So rather than re-audition a bunch of actors, I reached out to just Ian Clarkson, who expressed interest in the role.

I had worked with Ian twice before.  He was the Key Grip on my movie “Stash” and I cast him as an actor for in the Red Carpet Film Festival penthouse rooftop scene Edwin M. Figueroa’s film “Choke“, both part of Devil’s Five feature film.  So I knew firsthand of his hard working dedicated approach and how I could count on him to deliver.

This new role is pretty diverse and will really give Ian a challenge to pull off the multidimensionality of the part.  So I went ahead and auditioned just Ian. What he showed me wasn’t quite where I think he needs to be for the movie, but I believe wholeheartedly he will do the things needed to be ready for the shoot in June.

Everyone deserves chances and with all the effort Ian gave to my other films, I felt he earned opportunity to advance  himself as an actor.

As a director sometimes you take risks and in this case I felt Ian should be rewarded to really show what he can do as an actor.”

Bio in Ian Clarkson’s words:

Since graduating, I’ve had numerous roles in the world of TV and Film.  My first role was an Associate Producer working on a film with Joyce Dewitt and Rob Bogue called “Rock Story.” Later I was Project Coordinator on a reality show called “Yalla NY.”  Soon I moved on to network TV working at both Sundance TV and later Nickelodeon. I was then offered a role as Associate Producer at Aspire TV working at reality show “The Graduates.” While working there I began acting on web series my friends were producing and eventually got casted for a supporting role on a short film called “Act Nice”. I’m an all around producer/actor and director in both TV and film.

“Stash” Actor Jonathan Weirich Wins Lead Male Role “Wes McCulloch” in Double Vision

The Devil’s Five” / “Abandoned” / “Stash” director Terry R. Wickham has the deep pleasure to announce he has casted “Stash” actor Jonathan Weirich for the role of “Wes McCulloch” in Double Vision, his forthcoming love story suspense thriller.

The busy filmmaker says, “Jonathan Weirich was hands down the best actor I auditioned the part. I loved his preparation and how seriously he took the opportunity.
Plus how could I possibly forget his 3-minute dialogue scene as “Minister Malcolm” in the second scene in “Stash“, where he had to recite 3 pages of dialogue in front of 30 to 40 people. That’s pressure and he nailed it.
Also during his Double Vision audition, since the actor after his scheduled time “flaked out”, we were able to talk longer and speak at length about the tough movie business.  Our heart-to-heart exchange played just as much of a reason why I choose him.

In Jonathan, I feel a kindred spirit, who understands how difficult the world of moviemaking is. He has a very real grasp of what’s important and what’s not important.
In our culture obsessed society that’s fixated on celebrity, money and  instant gratification, we both have a different deeper focus.  I love Jonathan’s values and core mentality.  We are both are in the film business for the same reason.  We need to make films, because it’s what makes us both happy.
For these many reasons, Jonathan was easily the best candidate I saw to play “Wes McCulloch.”

Since I’ve already worked with Jonathan on “Stash“, his involvement, to go along with actor John Merolla (whom I worked on “The Devil’s Five aka The Wraparound”) gives me two experienced actors I’ve already worked with. They make for an excellent foundation out of the five actors needed for Double Vision.
I know what I’m getting and completely trust Jonathan. That was the bottom line.”
