    BILL HOUSKEEPER-Actor

    in Pop Culture

    At the age of 7 years old I knew that I wanted to be an actor. My father was a coal miner, and my mother worked hard for United Way.  Together they both taught me the importance of good work ethics.  Growing up in a small coal mining town in central Utah there was not a lot of theater outside of the local college and community theater where I grew up, but I made the most of it acting in every production I could get in.  

    I graduated from Mesa University with a Bachelors in theater acting, and after graduation I began doing lighting designs on cruise ships and ended up traveling most of the world.  When I finally moved to L.A. I put all of my attention into my acting career.  So far the roles and phone calls have not stopped and I’m pleased to say that I am a working Actor.

    Tough Economy but, CHRISTOPHER WALKEN impersonator is 'Walken' to the BANK!!! “This all started off as a joke,” says actor, writer, and master impressionist Chris Ferretti, “But at this point its completely taken on a life of it’s own.”

    Ferretti, residing in Astoria, NY - has been doing impersonations of celebrities all his life. But it was only recently he decided to capitalize on it. Eight months ago, Ferretti decided to put up a job (or a ‘gig’ as its called) on the popular website www.fiverr.com, a popular website where people share things they’re willing to do for $5.

    For Ferretti it was a no-brainer.

    “I get asked to do my Christopher Walken impersonation all the time. So I said, what the hell and put up a gig saying I would call anybody and say Happy Birthday or whatever you wanted for $5. But like I said…it was a joke. I never thought anything would come of it." But suddenly, Ferretti found his impersonation in high demand “It’s hilarious. I mean this week alone I got about 25 orders. It’s crazy the response I’ve been getting!  Laughter is the best medicine of all.
