038 Michael Mosley on That One Audition with Alyshia Ochse

S2 038: Michael Mosley

S2 038: Michael Mosley 1500 750 Alyshia Ochse

You Deserve to Be At the Table

Over the years, Michael Mosley has captivated audiences with the characters that he has portrayed on television and film. From a pastor who found God after a traumatic experience to a hard-to-catch serial killer, from a narcissistic EMT to portraying political operative Kenny O’Donnell, he has proved time and time again that he can do it all in both comedy and drama.

This year, Michael stars in FOX’s new sci-fi thriller, “neXt” opposite John Slattery. Created and executive produced by Manny Coto (“24: Legacy”), the series follows Silicon Valley pioneer Paul LeBlanc (Slattery) as he discovers that one of his own creations — a powerful A.I. called neXt — might spell doom for humankind, so he tries to shutter the project, only to be kicked out of the company by his own brother, leaving him with nothing but mounting dread about the fate of the world. When a series of unsettling tech mishaps points to a potential worldwide crisis, LeBlanc joins forces with Special Agent Shea Salazar (Fernanda Andrade) to fight an emergent superintelligence that, instead of launching missiles, will deploy the immense knowledge it has gleaned from the data to recruit allies, turn people against each other and eliminate obstacles to its own survival and growth. Michael shines as CM, Southern ex-con hacker with a genius IQ who works at the FBI cybercrime division. “neXt” is slated to premiere on October 6, 2020.

Michael was recently seen starring in Netflix’s crime series, “Seven Seconds” opposite Regina King where he played Detective Joe “Fish” Rinaldi. He was also seen in Netflix’s critically-acclaimed drama series, “Ozark” as Pastor Mason Young. Additional television credits include starring on USA Network’s “Sirens,” ABC’s “Scrubs” and “Pan Am” as well as recuring roles on ABC’s “Castle,” DC Universe’s “Titans” and CBS’ “Criminal Minds” to name a few.

On the film front, Michael stars in the indie biopic, “Sister Aimee” [1091 Media] that premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Set in 1926 and based on true events, the film follows the most famous Evangelical woman, Aimee Semple (Anna Margaret Hollyman), who is fed up with her own success and gets swept up in her lover’s, Kenny’s (Mosley), daydreams about Mexico and finds herself on a wild road trip towards the border. Additional film credits include “Peppermint” [STX Entertainment], “LBJ” alongside Woody Harrelson and “Hot Pursuit” [Warner Bros.].

009: Gillian Vigman

009: Gillian Vigman 1500 1000 Alyshia Ochse

Gillian Vigman deems herself a late bloomer to the acting game, but she has always been an entertainer. She hailed from Second City in Chicago, but didn’t give Los Angeles a try till she was 30 years old. A comedic genius with a self-depricating heart of gold, this woman knows how to make the uncomfortable job of auditioning into a humorous experience for everyone involved. Life has come full circle for Gillian from being taught by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler back in Chicago to now sharing the screen with them. Gillian held down multiple jobs for years to support her craft and find her “special something” that made her stand out from the crowd. Comedy. Life with Gillian is a constant chuckle, even as she journeys down the tragic moments of her career, she does so with such wit and amusement. You don’t want to miss a moment of what might come out of this woman’s mouth. Her story defies the Hollywood idealism of age and success. Her amusing approach to auditions has left an impactful imprint on my heart and to the Hollywood casting gods. Gillian has worked in over 70 television and film projects and countless commercial campaigns. She is most recognizable as “Jack’s wife” in many Jack in the Box commercials and Bradley Cooper’s wife in all the Hangover movies, but also for notable for her membership in the recurring cast of comedians on the sketch series MADtv. Gillian appeared in the critcially acclaimed show Son’s & Daughters, Californication, New Girl, Suburgatory, Parks and Recreation, Dr. Ken, Life in Pieces, and Scrubs.

002: Ravi Patel

002: Ravi Patel 1500 1000 Alyshia Ochse

Ravi Patel has been in over 70 national commercials, films and TV shows, most notably Transformers, Scrubs, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Comedians, Master of None, and Grandfathered BUT Ravi never intended on acting. In fact, Ravi planned on a career in finance. After faking his transcripts to secure a more reputable job, Ravi discovered that the finance world was not his cup of tea. His journey into acting is filled with serendipitously spontaneous adventures paving the way for Ravi being a recognizable face in your living room. An impromptu emcee job led to casting calls. A Ryan Seacrest billboard led to a stick figure drawn headshot that put Ravi’s natural improv skills on display in Michael Bay’s film Transformers. The well-circulated press trailer for Transformers was mostly Ravi’s small, but impactful, hilarious scene that grabbed the attention of a theatrical agent and several other opportunities in television.

Ravi has since learned that making your own projects levels the playing field. Making acting his business changed his effortless “I don’t care attitude” about acting into an impactful, appreciative, invested storyteller that has secured his spot in the entertainment world. Meet the Patels, an autobiographical documentary he made with his sister, Geeta Patel, was a compilation and inspiration of all of Ravi’s favorite storytellers from Wood Allen and Wes Anderson to Arrested Development, Seinfeld, This American Life, and American Splendor. His acting career taught him how to appreciate the art, but how taking it seriously can lead to existential crisis.

Ravi currently can be seen in the WB’s Wrecked and the film Bandaid.

“Happiness is a hedge fund. Happiness in life comes from all different endeavors and sources. When you’re an actor it is very easy to put all your emotional eggs in one basket and that works against you if you want to be successful. So to put yourself in the best situation to succeed, try to fill up those buckets of happiness that you can that are outside of acting such as your physical health, your mental health, spiritual health.”
