Monday Morning Man: Jacob Newton!
The film Longhorns has been so popular at the Outfest film festival that THREE screenings of the film have been scheduled. I was at the first one – completely sold out – on Friday night and found the film funny and sweet.
But the movie would not have succeeded at the level that it does if not for the charming performance by lead Jacob Newton who makes his feature film debut in the movie.
Yeah, he’s cute but what really makes Jacob most appealing is that certain something that makes someone a standout, a star. I predict big things in his future!
Jacob is a native of Louisville, KY. He was a theater major at the University of Louisville and was immediately cast in the first Mainstage Production of the season, Alan Ayckbourn’s Woman in Mind.
During this time Jacob was also hired for numerous stage play productions outside the University including Dial M for Murder, The Sound of Music, and Dangerous Liaisons, as well as The Great American Sex Play with the Actors Theatre of Louisville.
Once he made his way to Los Angeles, he appeared in numerous short films and plays including Everything Is Real which he also wrote and produced along with Jeff Fukuhara.
