Snake Pit USA and promoter, Joel Bane will host an event where Mr. Jacobs, will vie for the Catch Wrestling World Title (185-lb. Division) on Feb. 27th in Millersville, MD., said, "Ever since I heard the James Dean quote, 'Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today,' I've used it as a mantra. Maybe I'm obsessed.'"
Even a cursory look at the young man's resume,' which is topped with a 2018 Catch Wrestling World Championship in the Open Division in N.J., would make the biggest skeptic take notice.
During his undergrad tenure in East Lansing, his study major was 'unusual' for a world-class athlete. He earned his BFA in Theater in 2012, performing in many plays on campus. Including the male lead as Stanley Kowalski in Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play, 'A Streetcar Named Desire.' A role made famous in the 1951 film by Marlon Brando.
Following a stint in LA, where he won parts in TV shows, 'Modern Family' and 'Glee, Mr. Jacobs returned to MSU and earned his MFA in Acting in 2018. He's now also the head wrestling coach at his high school alma mater and is substituting teaching while earning further credentials.
While juggling eclectic career goals, including training for MMA fights (he's 1-0 as a pro) and his upcoming Catch Wrestling World Title match (Middleweight)
He reconnected with producer-director Anthony Hornus from his hometown and was cast in a supporting role in Collective Development Incorporated's 2016 release of highly acclaimed 1870s-era drama, 'Wild Faith.'
CDI's CEO, writer, actor, producer, DJ Perry, liked Mr. Jacobs' work in 'Wild Faith' and he was cast in a bigger role in the drama 'Man's Best Friend' (written and starring Mr. Perry and directed by Mr. Hornus).
Earlier this month, Mr. Jacobs won a lead role as injured farmer 'Rudy Tietz' in CDI's WW2 drama, 'Silent Night In Algona.' Written by Mr. Perry and to be directed by Mr. Hornus, SNIA is slated to shoot in the fall in the Algona area.
Keeping that James Dean life quote in focus for Curran Jacobs is an easy proposition. He sees it in his 7-year-old son . . . Dean.
