Actor with Entourage Model & Talent, Bill E. Mixon

My journey into acting started early, at the age of 15. I was modeling for a local clothing store, doing one act plays in High School, along with print work for Shocking Gray Catalog. Some of my notable roles have been as a cameraman in the upcoming movie "My All American" and as The Ghost in "Targeted, Lost in Austin". I was featured in "The Adventures of Pepper and Paula", "A Dog Walkers Christmas Tale", "Lazer Team" and "The Sauce". I have enjoyed working on TV series including "American Crime", "Dusk till Dawn", "Lipstick", "The Leftovers" and HGTV "FLIP N MOVE". I have model walked for Paul Mitchell as well as American Crew and Magic Clothing. I have been cast in Radio Shack, Verizon, Toyota, Weeva Books, Kia commercial along with doing a PSA for Texas Health. I was Chekov in a private Star Trek Movie. And I have been fortunate to write and direct my own movie "Violet" as well as two other screenplays and seven books. My plan for the future is to have my own fishing show to showcase my invention "Fish In a Barrel" for disabled persons. I also want to bring my books to life in a TV series and/or movies .
