"Needing several actors we couldn't find, Advantage Models & Talent worked with us when Sherwood Pictures recently shot our upcoming film Courageous," says Terri Catt, casting director, Sherwood Pictures. "We cast five cast members through them and were more than pleased with the excellent job these actors did in our film. The agency, as well as the actors, was professional, easy to work with, and 'spot on' for the parts we cast them in."
The Advantage actors featured in Courageous are Ben Davies, in his first feature-film role, as David Thomson, the youngest of the film's five main characters; T.C. Stallings, also making his film debut, playing T.J.; Angie Nelson in the role of Carmen Martinez; Damien HorneÂ as LamontÂ and Jose RodriguezÂ asÂ Jamar Holloman.
