New Podcast with Actor Jay Ellis!

In this installation of "Kahnversations," we interview Jay Ellis. Jay is a charismatic television and film actor, philanthropist, and entrepreneur. He can currently be seen as one of the stars of HBO’s new comedy series INSECURE, alongside Issa Rae. Ellis plays Lawrence, Issa’s depressed and unemployed boyfriend, who has been getting his act together for four years.

Previously, Jay starred on BET’s hit series THE GAME, which ended after its 9th season. He portrayed Bryce ‘Blue’ Westbrook, the highly educated, first round wide receiver draft pick from Stanford University in the series that follows professional athletes, agents and managers as they navigate their way through fame, money and betrayal. Recently, Ellis was featured on the second season of the critically acclaimed SHOWTIME series MASTERS OF SEX with Michael Sheen.

Born in Fort Sumter, South Carolina, Ellis spent the majority of his childhood traveling with his military family. His father completed over 20 years of service in the Air Force while his mother was an accomplished finance executive and instilled in her son the importance of community service and education at an early age.

Ellis attended Concordia University, where he played basketball and held the position of student body president. He interned briefly with the Portland Trailblazers and also joined AmeriCorps to provide care and resources to disadvantaged citizens in Portland. He then traveled the world as a model and was afforded the opportunity to live in such exotic territories as Milan, Tokyo, Sidney and London, appearing in campaigns for Abercrombie and Fitch, Nike and Adidas, to name a few.

In 2007, Ellis made the decision to move to Los Angeles to try his hand at acting and worked tirelessly at perfecting his craft, taking classes day and night. His debut feature role came in the Elizabeth Banks directed, star studded comedy MOVIE 43, starring alongside Terrence Howard. Ellis has also appeared in numerous primetime television series including GRACE AND FRANKIE, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, GREY’S ANATOMY and NCIS.

When not in front of the camera, he enjoys cooking, being outdoors, boxing, traveling and shooting photography. Ellis is an ambassador of amfAR and is also an active volunteer at Inside Out Writers, an organization that teaches creative writing classes in Los Angeles County Juvenile Detention Centers.

Ellis can be found on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat (@JayREllis) and also has a photography Instagram account (@theworldaroundje).

Actor/Producer Glenn Powell from EVERYBODY WANTS SOME, SCREAM QUEENS, RIDE ALONG 2 and THE EXPENDABLES 3!!!

New Podcast with Actor Glen Powell!



In this installation of "Kahnversations," we interview Glen Powell. Recently described by The Hollywood Reporter as the “Next Big Thing,” Glen Powell is well on his way to becoming one of tinsel towns’ most sought after actors.

Glen just finished filming the FOX feature HIDDEN FIGURES. Powell will star as famed astronaut John Glenn in the historically focused film. The plot centers on a group of women responsible for providing NASA with important statistical data needed to launch the program’s first successful space mission. Powell will share the screen with Kevin Costner, Kristen Dunst, Jim Parsons, Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer. The film is currently slated for a January 2017 release.

Up next for Powell is the second season of the FOX hit SCREAM QUEENS. Powell will reprise his fan favorite role of Chad Radwell, President of the Dickie Dollars Scholars. The Ryan Murphy show proved to be a critic and fan favorite among the Fall 2015 freshman class. Also upcoming for Powell is THE SET UP, starring opposite Emilia Clarke. The MGM film is currently in pre-production but slated for a 2017 release.

This past December, Powell wrapped production on the Iraq War drama SAND CASTLE. Further proving his acting chops, Powell will star opposite action heavy weights Henry Cavil, Nicholas Holt and Luke Evans. The film follows an American military unit on a mission to repair a water system in the turbulent Iraqi village of Baqubah. Powell plays Sgt. Falvy, a tough-minded and foul-mouthed solider hailing from the south. The film is slated for a late 2016 release.

2016 is proving to be the year of Powell as he has been featured in two major motion pictures including April’s critically acclaimed film EVERYBODY WANTS SOME, directed by Richard Linklater. The Paramount Pictures’ film, set in the '80’s, follows a college freshman who rolls with some colorful baseball players. The highly anticipated film is being referred to as the spiritual sequel to Linklater’s cult classic film “Dazed And Confused.” Additionally, Glen was seen in January’s comedy RIDE ALONG 2, opposite funnyman Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, portraying a lethal drug-lord on the streets of Atlanta. Powell will be seen in BEYOND DECEIT, alongside silver screen royalty Sir Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino. The independent film is slated for a late 2016 release.

In 2014, Glen co-starred with Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Jason Statham and Harrison Ford in THE EXPENDABLES 3. He joined the ranks as an expert hacker and drone pilot named Thron, singular to none in his intensity and agility. Powell was also seen in the independent thriller, WIND WALKERS, from director Russell Friendenberg. Other film credits include the independent comedy SEX ED, opposite Hayley Joel Osment, RED WING, starring alongside Bill Paxton, as well as the final installment of the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, opposite Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway.

This November, he will be honored as a rising star at the Napa Valley Film Festival.

When not in production, Glen resides in Los Angeles.

In this installation of "Kahnversations," we interview Ross Kohn. Ross grew up in Westchester, New York. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in Economics. After graduation, Ross moved to Los Angeles and spent 6 years in the entertainment industry, working alongside Emmy-nominated producers, actors and directors. In 2006, he formed the media production company BackEast Entertainment. The company specialized in creating short-form viral content which garnered millions of views.

In 2008 Ross packed his bags and moved to New York City to learn the ins and outs of high-level finance. Starting as a runner on the floor of the American Stock Exchange, Ross quickly worked his way up to become a licensed Institutional Sales Trader.
