Ryan Adam Barton-Grimley, better known simply as RBG, was born in Harare Zimbabwe in the mid-1970s. No joke. He really was. RBG moved to the USA with his family in the mid-1980s and has been trying his hardest to be a good boy and fit in ever since. After doing his time at various public and private institutions, and almost getting degrees in nine other fields of study, RBG finally graduated from UCLA with a degree in Art History. This was followed by additional study in the fields of acting, miming, clowning, and playing cowboys and indians. One day somebody finally read one of RBG’s scripts and decided he might just be crazy enough to make something good, or just plain crazy. Either way, RBG made his debut feature film, THE TRUTH in 2009. An avid painter/writer/fencer/stamp-collector/martial artist/philosopher, RBGalso finds time to ponder things like nuclear-non-proliferation, micro-biology, time-travel and pop-culture. RBG additionally admires all forms of horseplay/gun-play/acrobatics and jack-assery in general.

Found hanging off a glacier in Antarctica and raised by an indigenous tribe is NOT how one would describe Ari Schneider’s early life. Rather, he is from Los Angeles, his mother from Buenos Aires and father from the Bronx. He attended school in Santa Monica, did some plays like The Importance of Being Earnest and Comedy of Errors, and learned stuff. Later he was accepted into the Guildford School of Acting in England where he f–ked around a bit and performed in such plays as The Merchant of Venice and Three Sisters. There he received a BA with Honors in acting and musical theatre and was awarded a “Gold with Distinction” from the Royal Academy of Dramatic arts for Stage Combat in use of Broad Sword, Staff and Case of Rapiers. Yup…that’s right. That means he can kick some serious royal ass on stage, but in the “real world” can easily be dominated with a simple kick to the shin or ankle. He currently resides in Los Angeles where you might find him performing at the Second City Theatre, doing thespian bulls–t, living the life of a tortured writer or playing video games.
