CAST JEREMIAH HASSEMER, "Gene"

 

This is Jeremiah's first full length feature film. He has done numerous commercials and various short films. Most of his credits have come from the stage.

Jeremiah began acting in plays at a young age in his home town of Espanola, New Mexico. After holding major roles in plays such as YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU and HAMLET, he decided to seek out more knowledge of the craft.

Jeremiah came to Los Angeles to pursue acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He studied everything from Shakespeare to swing dancing. He held leading roles in plays such as CHEKOV IN YALTA and MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. He has also been seen in an adaptation of PEER GYNT, acting with the Son of Semele Ensemble here in Los Angeles.

When asked why he acts, Jeremiah says "I like to pretend." It is definitely a passion for him, however not his only one. Less than two weeks after he had finished the filming of THE GUN, he was in Taupo, New Zealand, completing his first Ironman triathlon. He has been competing in triathlons for three years along with other endurance sports. He has also been rock climbing for more than six years all over New Mexico, Colorado and California; skiing since the age of four; mountain biking for many years; and playing soccer since grade school. He also takes part in sports such as mountain boarding, snow boarding, skydiving, land sailing and has been a Bungee jumping instructor for more than a year in the Los Angeles area. He believes that you can't portray a life if you're not really living one.
