LOS ANGELES (May 19, 2014) –We Make Movies, a 4,000-member film collective in Los Angeles, has added Brian Gaskill to the cast of its controversial new series on YouTube entitled STRIPPING SHAKESPEARE.
Creator Nicol Razon merges classically trained actors performing the works of Shakespeare while dancing burlesque and erotically swinging around stripper poles to reintroduce audiences to Shakespeare and the sexual innuendo of his text. Brian Gaskill plays a sexy Petruchio to Nicol Razon’s pole dancing Kate in STRIPPING SHAKESPEARE "Episode 2 - Tongues, Tails & Teases" and is rumored to be making additional appearances later in the season.
Gaskill is known to his fans as the role of Dylan Lewis in Guiding Light, BJ Green in As The World Turns, and Ozzy Marone in The Bold and the Beautiful and has recently joined We Make Movies as a writer and actor of the community. Creator of Stripping Shakespeare, Razon says, “Stripping Shakespeare will not only showcase the talents of classically trained actors, erotic dancers, and filmmakers, but also strip Shakespeare’s text down to its meaning enriching our understanding of poetry that is usually robbed of its naughty bits. Brian Gaskill is a perfect addition to the show.”
