We interrupt this last minute fundraising effort to bring you a big casting announcement:
We are thrilled to inform you that DALTON LEEB has signed on to play the lead role of DREW in FEEDING MR. BALDWIN! If you're not familiar with the name, you'll more than likely be familar with the face. Dalton has appeared in some of the most popular nationally televised commercials in recent years. And if you don't recognize him, well, give it time. The dude is LEGIT. He's an extraordinary talent whose star is on the rise. We're super lucky to have him with us.
More on Dalton:
Dalton grew up in a small suburb of Minneapolis. After considering a much different career path, he decided to relocate to Los Angeles and dedicate himself to acting. He trained at Playhouse West (in North Hollywood) with Robert Carnegie. His credits include the indie film ONE DAY LIKE RAIN (with Jesse Eisenberg), GREEK on ABC Family, and commercials for companies including VERIZON, PLAYSTATION, McDONALD'S, WENDY'S, STRIDE GUM, TIME WARNER CABLE, 901 TEQUILA (directed by Justin Timberlake), and perhaps most recognizably for BRIDGESTONE in their 2010 Super Bowl ad WHALE OF A TALE.
More on the character:
Drew works at Clayton’s Furniture Emporium and absolutely hates it. There's nothing career worthy about shoving armoires into hatchbacks on a daily basis. Thankfully he's created a promising relationship with one of the store’s biggest customers, successful entrepreneur LANCE BRYANT. In Lance, Drew sees everything he wants to be…even though he doesn’t really know what it is exactly Lance even does. Regardless, once Lance offers him a chance to audition for a job, Drew jumps at the opportunity. You’d think house sitting for a guy like Lance wouldn’t be a problem--keep the place tidy, feed the dog, and sign for any packages. But since he wants to make a good impression, Drew finds himself under extreme pressure to not screw up and decides he'll do just about anything to earn the job-- including coercing an old friend to help him cover up a felonious act.
Here's a look at Dalton in a scene from GREEK and in the short film THE WEIGHT:
