PRLog - March 26, 2012 - LOS ANGELES -- Horror icon and international phenomenon Bill Oberst Jr. is slated to play the lead in Gregory Blair’s “DEADLY REVISIONS” and the other major roles have been cast with the formidable talents of multi-faceted Mikhail Blokh, Cindy Merrill and Lise Hart.
Mikhail Blokh, having originated the role of Perry in Gregory Blair’s stage thriller “Cold Lang Syne”, will be bringing his dynamic presence to the role of Deter McMannus, Grafton Torn’s best friend who may be hiding memories of his own. “I’m the perpetual ‘Loud Guy’ in the room,” Mikhail says; it’s a joviality that nicely befits Deter’s defense mechanism of the frat boy jokester. Mikhail appears in the antic film “The Night of the Falcon” and has written and directed pieces for the Sacred Fools Theatre Company where he frequently also appears as an actor.
Cindy Merrill is stepping into the pivotal role of Doctor Ally Morris, the sympathetic hypnotherapist who has come to help Grafton retrieve his lost memories. Cindy was born in Spain, raised in Texas and got a Bachelors in Business Administration before moving to L.A. to model and act. Her wide range has earned her roles in dramas, comedies, and other genre pieces. She has also been both writer and producer for a few projects as well. Cindy is very excited to be sinking her teeth into horror alongside Bill Oberst, Jr. in DEADLY REVISIONS.
Lise Hart, another stage veteran, will be playing Kat Torn, Grafton’s wife and business partner who may or may not be missing…or worse. Lise has a long history of playing, as she puts it, “dark, evil, seductive bitches”—which made her a perfect fit for the mysterious, hot-and-cold Kat. Her film credits include “Lift”, “Words of the Firefly” and “The Dress”. She is also a published poet, painter and accomplished dancer.
“These actors are all unique and incredibly talented,” Blair promises. “I couldn’t be more pleased and I look forward to seeing what we come up with together.”
