“Introducing Billy Bradley”
A veteran of commercials, movies and television while still only in his 30s, Michael Charles Roman is one of those timeless actors. He’s got the punchline prowess of everyone from Michael J. Fox to Jason Bateman, the comedic instincts of Martin Short and the theatrical range that could find him doing period pieces to contemporary dramas. Roman was in films like Keeping The Faith with Ed Norton and Ben Stiller, Little Nicky with Adam Sandler and Rob Burnett’s We Made This Movie. When it comes to TV, you’ve seen him on Bones, The Good Wife,Veronica Mars, Ground Floor, 2 Broke Girls, Evil, Frequency, and most recently, NetFlix’s Grace and Frankie with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.The guy can do it all. And just to test that idea, he decided to do it all on his first short film Introducing Billy Bradley. The film is a semi-autobiographical short written, directed and produced by Roman, who also stars alongside his former Grace and Frankie scene partner Martin Sheen (The West Wing, Apocalypse Now). Introducing Billy Bradley follows a down-on-his-luck actor who finds himself at a critical crossroads: save his life or salvage what’s left of his floundering career. The movie also stars Alexandra Metz (CW’s Frequency), Arjay Smith (ABC’s The Rookie, TNT’s Perception) and Garrett Morris (CBS’s 2 Broke Girls, Saturday Night Live). Billy Bradley does what the best short films do—leave you both satisfied and wanting more. Not an easy balance, but in his directional debut, Roman does just that. It’s a brilliant film that in just 14 minutes, manages to do what some films take hours to attempt to do.
