15 - Actor Jessejames Locorriere - How to Leverage Your Individuality and Create a Work-Life Balance

“There are no more Jack Nicholson's. There are no more Marlon Brando's.” - Jessejames Locorriere⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

On this week's episode, we have a conversation with Jessejames Locorriere.

Jessejames is an actor and proud father, and we painted outside the lines a bit in this episode and chat about music, the mentorship of William H. Macy, the odd genius of Joaquin Phoenix, and we ponder the idea of Marlon Brando being a meme.

Jessejames acting career began nearly to 40 years ago when he started his studies at the Lee Strasberg Acting Institute in Manhattan at the age of eight. Years later, he went on to study with the Atlantic Theater Companies’ Practical Aesthetics Workshop at New York University.

With over 50 film/television credits, Jessejames is best known for his work in Ant-Man (Marvel), Banshee (Cinemax), MacGyver (CBS), Sleepy Hollow (FOX), Still The King (CMT), and Turn: Washington’s Spies (AMC).

Currently, you can watch Jessejames as “Henry” in the second season of Ozark (Netflix). In the coming months, you’ll be able to catch him in the first episode of Dolly Parton Theater (Netflix), The Dead Center, a feature film recently acquired by Arrow Films, and soon he will be making an extraordinary appearance in The Escape Game’s interactive gaming experience, nationally.

Jessejames resides in Nashville, TN, where he teaches acting workshops and coaches actors for film/television.
