Ross's "Down and Dangerous" Screen Test
After moving to Los Angeles, Ross Marquand quickly garnered attention with credits in several independent films and television shows. His feature film debut (Woodshop) placed him opposite cult actors Jesse Ventura and Mitch Pileggi. Marquand's breakout performance in A Lonely Place for Dying found him performing with Academy-Award nominee James Cromwell and Michael Wincott. The following year, Ross worked alongside Oscar-nominee Bruce Davison and Daniel Roebuck on The Congregation. In the Summer of 2011, Ross will act in the company of Oscar-nominee Sally Kirkland in Broken Roads.
