J. August Richards


J. August Richards has become a visible favorite in primetime television, starring in the Joss Whedon hit series Angel, Dick Wolf’s Conviction, Steven Bochco’s Raising the Bar and, most recently, recurring on ABC’s new hit action series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

On the big screen, J. appeared in the films Why Do Fools Fall In Love, Good Burger and Paved With Good Intentions. He also starred in the TV movies Critical Assembly, Mutiny and The Temptations, for which he’s still recognized.

J. wrote and directed the buzzworthy short film Privacy Policy, which he describes as Enemy of the State meets The Sixth Sense. The short played in festivals to major acclaim. He has written and directed the upcoming Web series The Hypnotist, which he describes as a “psychological fiction.”

Born in Washington, D.C., and raised in the Maryland suburb of Bladensburg, J. discovered his love for acting at an early age. Determined to move to Los Angeles to become an actor, he applied to only one college: the University of Southern California. He was not only accepted, but he also won numerous scholarships and grants. Since graduation, he has worked steadily in film, TV and theater.

B.J. Britt


bjbritt.siteAs an actor, B.J. Britt has fought supervillains and tangled with vampires, but it’s his decidedly ordinary unorthodox upbringing as a funeral director’s son that’s helped keep him grounded while capturing attention in hits including Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Being Mary Jane.

A self-confessed “class clown” as a child, Britt grew up with three sisters and a brother in a tight-knit family in Wilson, N.C. After graduating from East Carolina University, where he studied theater, he signed with Elite Model Management in Atlanta. Three years later, Britt moved to Los Angeles at the urging of his manager. Roles in a range of series soon followed, including the cult hit Veronica Mars; comedy series One on One and Everybody Hates Chris; and the long-running drama One Tree Hill.

In 2013, Britt signed onto the recurring role of Paul Patterson Jr., younger brother to the lead character of the hit BET series Being Mary Jane. In 2014, he added to his plate by taking on the role of Antoine Triplett on ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Britt turned what had been scheduled to be a half-season guest-starring role into a recurring character who spanned two seasons, and whose departure had repercussions on the show that can still be felt.

Britt can currently be seen in the third season of Being Mary Jane. In his downtime, he works with charitable organizations – particularly those devoted to assisting the homeless – and enjoys traveling and sports.

Kristine Sutherland


As Joyce Summers, mother to the heroine in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Kristine Sutherland was more familiar with doling out maternal advice than spells and curses. But the show wasn’t her first foray into the supernatural: She got her start playing Pegora the witch for the local children’s theatre company while in high school.

After attending university, Kristine traveled to London to study acting at The Drama Studio. New York City beckoned, and Kristine soon got her professional start Off-Broadway and in regional theater. Since then, she has appeared in a number of pilots for television, guest starred on many popular television shows, and appeared in countless commercials and voiceovers. Many children of the 1980s remember her as the next-door neighbor, Mae Thompson, in the hit Disney film Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

In 1993, Kristine and her husband, actor John Pankow (cousin Ira, Mad About You), moved to Los Angeles. In 1997, she kicked off a seven-year run as the ever-motherly Joyce Summers on the WB’s cult hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

When her role on Buffy began to wind down, Kristine seized the opportunity to stretch her talents beyond acting and attended the photography program at Santa Monica College. She is currently working on a book documenting rural mountain life in Italy.

Kristine and her family moved back home to New York in 2004 and enjoy taking advantage of everything New York City has to offer. She continues to enjoy guest staring in the many episodic television shows that are shooting in the New York area and working as a portrait photographer. She recently co-starred in the independent film The Perfect Wedding, with James Rebhorn.

Miracle Laurie


laurieMiracle Laurie is originally from Huntington Beach, Calif. — part of the “OC,” as it’s referred to now. She’s acted in theatre since the age of 7 and has her degree in drama from the University of California, Irvine. She had her first piano lesson at the age of 5 and has been a Polynesian dancer pretty much since she could walk. She has been lucky enough to dance with such Hawaiian greats as Bill Tapia and Rev. Dennis Kamakahi.

Miracle modeled for a few years and even appeared on the cover of Teen magazine. A few years ago, she and her man fell in love with the ukulele and formed Uke Box Heroes, a very groovy ukulele cover band. She was lucky enough to get her “big break” by appearing as “Mellie/November” in Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse for two seasons. She was blessed to work with such greats as Olivia Williams, Harry Lennix, Eliza Dushku, Fran Kranz, Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Reed Diamond, Dichen Lachman, Enver Gjokaj and, last but not least, Tahmoh Penikett.

After Dollhouse she’s been fortunate enough to carve out a small independent film career and get supporting roles in movies starring some of her long-time heroes, like Val Kilmer. She’s also had the pleasure of working right alongside some of the most talented and beloved people in the business like Alan Cumming, Garret Dillahunt, Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogler. She just recently found out that the film Any Day Now will be part of the Spotlight Series at the Tribeca Film Festival this spring and couldn’t be more thrilled.

Miracle is currently fighting the good fight as an actor in Los Angeles, cherishing every opportunity that comes her way and savoring every experience she has. Uke Box Heroes is looking to play a few dates around town starting in April 2012 and release their second album by the fall.
