Josiah Black star of recent JIGSAW film talks Movies, Acting, Politics, Comedy and confronting Mr Jigsaw!

by James Murphy

Josiah Black: Real Life Hero. Comedy Expert. Rising Star. Oh and a veteran of the JIGSAW franchise! 

 

Tomorrow’s Talent. Today. That was our mission statement ages back when asked why we interview the up and coming names rather than pitching for the obvious household names. In our opinion, going truly ‘viral’ is about original vision, being the first to spot that trend, rather than jumping bandwagons. We ourselves are something of a niche and novelty, just getting started. It makes perfect sense therefore to look at big productions and thereby spot the NEXT big name.

Josiah Black very kindly sat down with us over a virtual ‘cuppa’ to talk about his careers, ambitions, experiences and philosophies. A BIT of politics is thrown in so technically yep..it’s a POLITFLIX!

Enjoy..(JUST CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW: MR JIGSAW DEMANDS IT ;))

Josiah Black:

Josiah Black is a Canadian/American film/TV actor on the up rise. He is most recently known for his work in such films as Jigsaw, American Bad Boy (alongside Katt Williams), Kindergarten Cop 2 playing opposite Dolph Lundgren and Bill Bellamy, Sex and the Single Alien (directed by Peter Daskaloff) as well as various other notable credits with more to come.
Josiah was born in Thailand where he spent the first five years of his life allowing him to develop his cultured background before his family moved to a Vancouver suburb in British Columbia, Canada called Mission. There he discovered his passion for the creative arts as a guitarist and singer in a rock group known as “Apprehended”. He played in various bands and solo acts until the moment he began acting in Vancouver training with coach, Bart Anderson.

Shortly after producing, writing and starring in his own film alongside brother, Paul, they both moved to California where they would pursue both modeling and stand up comedy while continuing to further their craft of acting.

Josiah still performs around Los Angeles and various cities. In his off time he can frequently be caught surfing and travelling the coast with his wife in one of their 3 classic VW camper vans.
