Actor Jesse Moss shared his latest projects with Examiner.com. This young Vancouver born actor is known for his roles in ‘Cedar Cove,’ ‘Final Destination 3,’ and for his role as Quinn McKaye on the series ‘Whistler,’ for which Moss won a Leo Award for Best Lead Performance. This young actor plays guitar, loves the blues, hockey and baseball and has a great part in the upcoming horror film ‘EXTRATERRESTRIAL.’ This is the third film from the Vicious Brothers and audiences look forward to its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 18th.
Q. I love the description of your character in EXTRATERRESTRIAL as the obnoxious hipster named Seth. Tell your fans all about your character and this cool upcoming film.
A. Haha! Seth the obnoxious hipster. Yeah, that's pretty bang on. Seth is that friend we all have that is loud, rude, maybe even a little chauvinistic, but when you're having a party you want him there. He's a lot of fun, but only in small doses. However if things take a turn for the worse, he's not the guy you want by your side. All of the bravado he projects is really a mask to cover up how scared he really is. When it comes down to it, he'd sacrifice anyone and everyone to save his own ass.
Q. What was it like on the set of EXTRATERRESTRIAL? Can you share any interesting stories about the filming?
A. What was great about shooting this film was that it was an ensemble cast with all really cool people. We all got along extremely well, which is helpful when you're stuck in a cabin in the middle of nowhere shooting nights. We had to find ways to entertain ourselves while they set up shots, which usually boiled down to Freddie Stroma and me messing with the girls. You know really mature things like throwing little balls of paper at them and then pretending it wasn't us. We also tried our hand at free styling, which was a bit of a train wreck. It's times like those though, when you're out of your mind at 5 a.m. that really bonds a cast together. We all created friendships that will last a lifetime.
Q. What are your upcoming projects that you have in the works?
A. I have a film called ‘WOLFCOP’ coming out in theatres on June 6th with the tag line "Dirty Harry… only hairier". It's a comedy/horror about an alcoholic cop who turns into a werewolf and fights crime. How can that not be awesome! I play a ruthless gang leader that terrorizes the town. I also begin shooting a television series called ‘Cedar Cove’ for the Hallmark Channel starring Andie Macdowell in April.
Q. I read that you play squash and love to cook. Do you have any other hidden talents?
A. I play guitar. I'm not gonna be signing any record deals anytime soon, but I have a lot of fun doing it. I love the blues, so I'm also learning how to play the blues harmonica. We'll see how that goes.
Q. I see you’re a big hockey fan and baseball may not be your thing. However, I'm going to end with what's become my signature question. If you were a baseball player, what would your walk up song be?
A. I am a big baseball fan as well actually. The Blue Jays and the Dodgers are my two teams. I'm also a big Stones fan, so I think my walk up song would be ‘Street Fighting Man’ by the Rolling Stones.
