Evan is your typical family man – devoted father, loving husband, hard worker, and occasional murderer of bad parents. A high school guidance counselor, his affection for the young and the innocent yields some interesting results. When his infant son cries in the middle of the night, he lets his wife Lauren sleep while he tends to the boy’s needs. When his lady frets over their newborn’s inability to gain weight, Evan invites his mother to come and help out around the house while he’s at work. When his student shows up at school with a shiner, Evan takes it upon himself to remove the threat from the situation – or, in layman’s terms, take the abusive father to an abandoned mansion, tie him to a chair, stab him with a large hunter’s knife, and bury his cold cadaver deep in the earth.
IMTA alum Seann William Scott is primarily known for his wise-cracking comedic roles in films such as Goon, The Dukes of Hazzard, The Rundown and the American Pie series of films, as well as voicing Crash in the Ice Age franchise and Skiff in Planet 51. In recent years, Scott has taken on roles that allowed him to stretch his dramatic side, such as the role of Wesley Cole in the third season of the Fox series “Lethal Weapon” and an abusive stepfather in Already Gone. In a clear departure from his previous roles and playing against type, playing Evan in the horror thriller Bloodline allows Scott to delve into his darkest role yet.

Riot Girls is an action sci-fi feature set in an alternate 1995 where a mysterious illness has killed every adult. With the adults gone the town of Potter’s Bluff has split into two factions: on the East Side are the poor kids working together to survive by scavenging the ruins of the former town; the West Side is the home of the rich and popular who have made the high school their base. Behind the West’s brutal dictator Jeremy, the area runs with a cult-like precision, and anyone that dares to disobey is dispatched, often in a public display. When Jack, the leader from the East, is caught stealing water and batteries, it is up to his sister Nat and her best friend Scratch to rescue him in a mission that will forever change the future of the town.
IMTA alum Madison Iseman stars as Nat opposite Paloma Kwiatkowski as Scratch. “We hit it off as soon as we met, and she’s a really great friend of mine,” Iseman said of her co-star. “And that’s what you always hope for, that you find someone that you naturally have a great chemistry with. We had a lot of fun together, too, because we were both just diving into these characters. We both changed our hair, and we got cool haircuts. She made it very easy to have this on-screen romance, and we became such good friends.” Written by Katherine Collins and directed by Jovanka Vuckovic, Munro Chambers, Alexandre Bourgeois, Ajay Freiese, and Atticus Mitchell also star.

High in the Columbian mountains of South America, a group of child and teenage soldiers train and wait for instructions while ensuring that their American hostage, the Doctora, stays alive. The young group of rebels — bearing names like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom — perform military training exercises by day and revert to youthful self-indulgence by night. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, both the mission and the intricate bonds formed within the group begin to disintegrate.
Monos debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, winning the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award. Since then, it has won multiple awards at film festivals throughout the world, culminating with its selection as the Colombian entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 92nd Academy Awards.
Starring in Monos is IMTA alum Moisés Arias. Born in NYC to Colombian parents who fled their homeland due to violence, Arias’ personal history is intricately tied to the conflict that has burdened the country for decades. Upon reading the screenplay for Monos, he agreed to spend four months in Colombia for a demanding cinematic undertaking. “It was described to me that it would be a very difficult experience, because we’d be up in the mountains of Chingaza near Bogota, about 14,000 feet in the air, for about a month or two, and then move into the jungles of Medellín for about four weeks.”

Each fall as a new television season begins, it is gratifying to note the IMTA alumni who add to their résumés with work on “television.” In this century, “television” is not just a “smart” TV, but any portable device or computer with internet access. Networks and cable channels produce their own line-up of original shows and films, as do streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, and Apple TV. YouTube and Vimeo serve as platforms for independent filmmakers and writers to release original series and films. All of these outlets provide unlimited — and ongoing —possibilities for IMTA alumni to appear on “the small screen” by making their full catalog of shows, new and old, available on-line so that they may be viewed year-round, 24-7.
Below are just a few of the IMTA alumni working on network, cable or web series, appearing on returning or new series in regular or recurring roles, announced guest-starring appearances, and lead or supporting roles in TV movies and mini-series. Our apologies for any names missing. IMTA is equally proud of all of the alumni working in the entertainment industry and we try to keep track of as many as we can. Please let us know of castings, guest appearances and other successes of IMTA alums.
Every young actor has to start somewhere, and what better start than a role in a new series with one of today’s most critically acclaimed actors. LA18 alum Brady Amaya will appear in episode 8 of the new Fox series “Ratched,” which stars Sarah Paulson. The series follows a young nurse (a younger version of the sadistic Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) at a mental institution who becomes jaded, bitter and a downright monster to her patients. No air date has been announced. Amaya, from SB Talent, was a finalist for Male Pre-Teen Talent, Male Pre-Teen Model and Most Sought Male Talent.
