‘Billy’s’ Rowe nabs indie, TNT projects

Actors schedule filling up

Brad Rowe, the budding actor who garnered notices for his performance in the Sundance pic “Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss,” has lined up co-starring roles in two pics: the indie drama “Stonebrook” and TNT’s original Western “Purgatory.”

Rowe recently began production in North Carolina on “Stonebrook,” helmed by Byron Thompson from a screenplay by Gordon Dawson. In the pic, Rowe plays the son of a poor farmer who moves to Chicago desperate to put his poverty-stricken roots behind him. He then gets caught between the underworld and his integrity as he struggles to advance in life.

Pic is produced by Matthew Garcia for Joy Art Inc.

“Purgatory” follows in the tradition of such recent TNT original programming as “The Rough Riders,” with feature film director Uli Edel helming the story of a western town. Rowe stars as Sunny, a young gunslinger on the road to redemption who gets caught up with a gang of murderous outlaws. Eric Roberts and Sam Shepard headline the ensemble cast.

“Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss” marked Rowe’s feature debut. He recently completed a four-episode gig on the NBC sitcom “NewsRadio.” He’s also appeared on the series “Clueless.”

Rowe is repped CAA and by Marty Berneman of Lovett Management.
