Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1963, Louis Pappas began his career on stage with the Drexel Hill Players in 1971. Also an accomplished pianist, he studied classical piano at Settlement Music School. In 1979, he moved to South Florida where he attended Broward College furthering his music education and taking creative writing. In 2004, he founded Angry Pig Productions with the idea of using the camera to bring about social change. His first film, "Off Ramps," a documentary dealing with the issue of the criminalization of the homeless population in his town, had a successful run being selected in five festivals out of only seven submissions. Since that time, he has written and directed several short films winning festival accolades and awards all over the world.
In recent years, Louis has also returned to acting, and has booked roles in several films including: "The Shift," starring Danny Glover, and "The Last Hit," where he plays the lead, a hitman who saves a young girl from a ruthless gangster.

LOU PHILLIPS WAS BORN IN A SMALL EAST TEXAS TOWN AND RAISED IN AN EVEN SMALLER WEST TEXAS TOWN BY THE NAME OF QUANAH. HE WAS THE SECOND OF FIVE CHILDREN BORN TO ALICE LANE WHO ESSENTIALLY RAISED HER KIDS AS A SINGLE PARENT. AN INDUSTURIOUS HOUSEHOLD LED BY A WOMAN WHO DEVELOPED AND RAN HER OWN BUSINESSES TO KEEP THE FAMILY GOING.
AS A YOUNGSTER, HIS FAVORITE PAST TIME WAS PLAYING ARMY WITH HIS FRIENDS AND DAY DREAMING ABOUT ONE DAY TRAVELING AND BECOMING A BUSINESS MAN. THIS COMBINATION SORT OF BECAME THE FOUNDATION OF THE MAN HE ULTIMATELY GREW UP TO BE.
ATHLETICS WERE VERY IMPORTAN THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE AND HE EVEN FANCIED HIMSELF TO BE A PROMISING STAR IN BASEBALL AND BASKETBALL… BUT FOUND OUT SOON AFTER EXPANDING HIS COMPETITION THAT HIS SKILLS WERE FAR BELOW THE REAL DEALS. AND, SO…IN 1966, HE JOINED THE ARMY AS A WAY OF SEEING THE WORLD AND GETTING A SURE WAY TO HIGHER EDUCATION. THE ARMY GAVE HIM THAT AND SO MUCH MORE.

Jimmy was first to enter the sports-entertainment world, debuting in 1964 after training with fellow Hall of Famer Verne Gagne. Johnny followed soon after in 1967, and together they won several regional tag team championships. The Valiants entered WWE in the early 1970s, and at times they seemed unbeatable. Together, the pair captured the World Tag Team Championship in 1974 and held them for just over a year. Later, a third brother, "Gentleman" Jerry, joined them, teaming with Johnny to once again win the World Tag Team Championship in 1979. The Valiants were just one of the dozen tag teams that fellow 1996 Hall of Fame inductee Captain Lou Albano guided to the World Tag Team Championship in his career.
Jimmy is also an accomplished author of his own Autobiography entitled, "WOO....MERCY DADDY! Welcome to my world the Jimmy Valiant story. We talk about his storied career in wrestling and what he is up to today
