With a career spanning over two and a half decades, DANTE BASCO is a Hollywood actor who has become a cult classic and pioneering figure in Asian American cinema. He was first introduced in Steven Spielberg’s fairytale movie Hook, as “Rufio”, the leader of the Lost Boys. He quickly jumped to leading roles like Newline’s Take the Lead, opposite Antonio Banderas, and The Debut, which became the voice of a Filipino American generation.
JASIKA NICOLE‘s notable credits include Astrid Farnsworth on Fox’s sci-fi hit “Fringe” and Kim, Huck’s long-suffering wife on ABC’s “Scandal”, but she is probably best known for her background work in the Rick James skit on Comedy Central’s The Chapelle Show. An avid DIY-er, Nicole spends her free time sewing, building, knitting, drawing, and writing. You can see more of her artwork and handbuilt creations on her TryCurious Blog at jasikanicole.com.
SASCHA RASMUSSEN started in entertainment in 1998 when he landed a part in his first feature film. He continued to act and produced his first short in 2006 and grew to love working on both sides of the camera. Sascha went on to produce his first feature THE OUTSIDE in 2009 which allowed him to bring to life many passion projects that stoke his desire to get things done. He most recently appears opposite Morgan Freeman in MOMENTUM which is currently in theaters and is producing the television series THE KEEPERS for Charlie Sheen. Sascha would like to thank his mother for all her Frenchiness, and especially his beautiful wife Jamie and son Greyson for making every day the best he’s ever lived.
DIONYSIO BASCO, along with his family, has been in the entertainment biz for over 2 decades (ahem, almost 3). From acting to writing and producing to singing in a band. All he knows how to do is to put a smile on your face, which is good cuz he doesn’t have many other skills. He was a series regular on TNBC’s City Guys and has acted in dozens of feature films including next years The Head Thieves costarring alongside his brother Dante. He can’t wait to slow dance again.
JESSICA LEE was plucked fresh out of a Dallas, Texas mall at the ripe age of 13 to smile and pout for cameras across Europe and Japan for a few years. She enjoyed talking too much and decided to pursue bigger dreams, which included competing in her high school talent show with a choreographed rendition of Christina Aguilera’s “Come on Over Baby”. She won. This early success propelled her to a 2 year stint as the host of The Bite Network, as well as publishing her first book, “Free Puppies for Sale”. She officially took the worst drive ever to LA in 2012, and can already be seen in over a dozen actively running commercials. Boom. She recently stole the entire movie with her scene in Summerland Project, and 95% of her gay friends think she’s way more fabulous than Emma Stone. She is humbled to be part of Midnight Makeout Session, and immediately upon curtain will be fielding offers for the next awesome project to bless.
