Jack O’Connell is a frequent presenter at AWoW Showcases and a valued member of Artists Without Walls. He has appeared in many popular television series including Law and Order, Blue Bloods and Boardwalk Empire and in films such as Doubt, with Meryl Streep, and Men in Black 3.
Brazzaville Teen-Ager is a short film adapted from a Bruce Jay Friedman short story and is directed by Michael Cera. Cera is part of the film’s cast, which includes, Jack, who plays Cera’s boss, and veteran actor Charles Grodin, who plays Cera’s father.
The film is produced by JASH, which is kicking off a web-based comedy youtube channel created by Michael Cera, Sarah Silverman, Tim and Eric, and Reggie Watts. JASH‘s intention is to create and produce a new video to the JASH channel every Monday. Late Night host Jimmy Kimmel is one of JASH’s producers.
According to Jack, “We filmed in five days in early March in Manhattan and Greenwich Connecticut. How do you like my Greenwich digs, Charles? Quite a cozy little shack, don’t you think?” Check out Jack’s shack, but better yet, check out his wonderful performance. Bravo, Jack.
