MEET THE TEAM
In 1985 Brad Wilson began an eleven year alliance with Academy Award winning actor Robert Duvall, operating ROBERT DUVALL PRODUCTIONS in New York. This alliance encompassed eighteen feature films, among them: COLORS with Sean Penn, DAYS OF THUNDER with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, FALLING DOWN with Michael Douglas and the critically acclaimed WRESTLING ERNEST HEMINGWAY with Richard Harris and Shirley MacLaine.
Wilson also worked with Duvall on some of his most memorable television roles, including the CBS miniseries LONESOME DOVE and the HBO epic STALIN shot in location in Moscow, for which Duvall won the Golden Globe for Best Actor.
In 1992 the formation of BUTCHERS RUN FILMS was announced in Hollywood and Wilson as the company's Vice President of Development and Production. After only two months, the company had closed a deal with United Artists to make A FAMILY THING, based on an original idea from Duvall and scripted by Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton and Tom Epperson. The film was released in February 1996, and Wilson was awarded a Humanitas Certificate for his work as Co-Producer on the movie.
Casey was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in 2007 as a Center Fielder after his senior year at Lipscomb University. He played professionally for two years before moving on to his next goal in life, a successful career in the entertainment industry.
This passion led to acting classes during his offseason with the Giants and an eventual move to Hollywood. Within six months of arriving in Hollywood he quickly shot to the top of the entertainment world by landing the role of Chad Bradford in the star-studded film MONEYBALL which also starred Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip-Seymour Hoffman, and Robin Wright. He has acted in many commercials, TV shows (such as ABC’s hit series NASHVILLE and Gene Simmons’ FAMILY JEWELS), print ads, and short films along with being a spokesperson for multiple companies.
Other current movie projects that have been filmed and are to be released this coming year are UNDRAFTED and MY MANY SONS. Casey was recently selected for the main cast of the upcoming Hank Williams biopic titled I SAW THE LIGHT as Hank’s good friend and legendary Drifting Cowboy, Jerry Rivers. It will be enjoying a worldwide release through Sony Pictures Classics.
