Successful Athlete-Turned-Actor MAURICE HALL Looks to Fans for Support of “BAKER’S MAN”


LOS ANGELES (July 16, 2014) – The Ohio State University 2002 National Championship football player and former NFL San Diego Charger MAURICE HALL is reaching out to his fans once again, looking for support of the new indie feature film project, BAKER’S MAN.

Hall is kicking-off an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign on July 16th to raise funds for the delicious romantic-comedy film, in which he will star and produce. Among the numerous donor perks, fans will have a chance to win tickets to four NFL football games, donated by current pro-players Lorenzo Alexander (Phoenix Cardinals), Justin Blalock (Atlanta Falcons), DeVier Posey (Houston Texans), Matt Daniels (St. Louis Rams) and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles).

BAKER’S MAN shares the story of successful entrepreneur Thomas Stevens (Hall), who has a passion for giving, especially to bakeries. When Thomas learns the bakery his mother owned before it was stolen away is up for his grant award, he decides to go back to his hometown to assess the situation. Of course, not everything goes according to his recipe for retaliation and Thomas soon discovers that love can be sweeter than revenge.

Hall is excited to bring this film to the big screen, adding “I enjoy romantic comedy movies because they are a lot like life. There is some laughter, some crying but eventually if you overcome the obstacles, love always wins.”

Since making his way to Hollywood, Hall has been building a solid resume on-screen. He has appeared in numerous television shows, including FOX’s hit comedy “The Mindy Project,” Nickelodeon’s wildly successful “Sam & Cat” and VH1’s fan-favorite “Hit The Floor.” He also created and starred in the dramatic web series “Shadow Love,” under his Mo-tivation Unlimited, LLC banner.

This Columbus, Ohio native has always excelled in work and life. Upon graduating from Brookhaven High School, Hall earned the coveted Watkins Award, which identifies the top 5 African American Scholar Athletes in the country. Scouted by every major university, Hall made the decision to stay in his hometown, accepting a football scholarship to The Ohio State University (OSU). During his college football career, Hall scored the game winning touchdowns against the University of Illinois and the University of Michigan and went on later that year to win the 2002 NCAA National Championship trophy. Upon graduating with a degree in Communications, Hall was picked-up by the San Diego Chargers football team. After a knee injury cut his NFL career short, Hall returned to OSU earning a Master’s degree in Sports Administration. He went on to become a sports analyst at the local Columbus NBC affiliate, WCMH-TV, where his comedic segments covering high school and collegiate sports catapulted the show to the top rated slot and nurtured Hall’s budding passion for performing.
