John Pyper-Ferguson` has died over 40 times on screen in film and television and counting.  Pypers ‘ latest role as Tex Nolan on TNT’s new critically acclaimed hit series, THE LAST SHIP, produced by the phenomenal Michael Bay, fans tune in each week find out to find out the fate of his prolific character.

Over an extraordinary career, he has given many provocative performances playing characters such as the most anxious deputy in the West in Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven; a neurotic possessive narcissistic gunslinger in the cult series Brisco County Jr.; a shy, reclusive bassist in the mocumentary punk rock film Hard Core Logo; a preppy dad in the comedy She's the Man; and a quiet, driven, ruthless sheriff in Hungry Hills. Pyper-Ferguson has been in two movies titled Drive, one a kung fu classic, the other opposite Ryan Gosling. He has portrayed the occasional cameo appearance, in such movies as in Conviction, opposite Hilary Swank in order to challenge and expand his range.

Recently, on the big screen, Piper-Ferguson played the ever effervescent, happy-go-lucky, ferocious Wild Joe in David Hayter's directorial debut Wolves, and Pastor Shay, a conflicted man in search of his faith finding the courage to lead his flock, in The Remaining.

On television, Pyper-Ferguson portrayed a drug-addicted immortal on the TV show Highlander, for which he was nominated for a Gemini for Best Guest Star. He recently won Best Actor for his transformative performance as bereaving father seeking vengeance for his son's death on the ABC drama Motive. Audiences also recognize Pyper from such critically acclaimed dual-role performances as a profiler and serial killer on Fringe and as the penultimate villain in the final season of Burn Notice.

 Born in Australia and raised in Canada, Pyper-Ferguson currently resides in Los Angeles, where he considers himself a ‘20 song guy’ playing guitar in the intimacy of his living room and is inspired by artists like Lyle Lovett and ‘the Boss’.  He frequents the range with his ‘industry’ friends to improve his handicap and enter a place of Zen. He is also a huge fan of his Canadian hockey team, the Canucks as they battle in the rink.  That aside, Pyper mostly practices dying for a living or sweating it out at Birkim Yoga.

Donny Most  recently appeared before a standing room only capacity at the Catalina club with "Donny Most Sings and Swings."   Although best known for the role of "Ralph Malph" in the hit series "Happy Days," it is his first love as a skilled singer that is literally taking center stage now. Most's style is reminiscent of era that has and continues to thrive.  His Rat Pack quality seems to bring in audiences of all ages and backgrounds, as he offers classic renditions of "Lady Is A Tramp," "It Had to Be You," "Im Beginning To See The Light," "I've Got You Under My Skin," "Shake, Rattle & Roll," "Mack The Knife," and much more. Shifting easily between vocal styles, Most pays homage to The Chairman of the Board, Dean Martin, and his idol Bobby Darin, while paying tribute to the path that brought him back to his musical roots.

Don is probably best known for his co-starring role as Ralph in the long running television series “Happy Days”. During this time, he worked with such emerging talents as Ron Howard and Garry Marshall. Recently, Don was seen in a recurring role on the hit TV show – “Glee”, as well as starring roles in the indie film – “The Yankles”, and “Chez Upshaw”, starring Kevin Pollack and Illeana Douglas. He just finished starring in “Campin Buddies”, along with a role in the independent film – “Remember Isobel”, and the short film – “Duality” Most’s other feature film credits include “ED TV”, directed by Ron Howard; “Crazy Mama”, directed by Jonathan Demme, and “The Great Buck Howard”, starring John Malkovich. In television, his other guest starring roles include “Men Of A Certain Age”, “Century City”, ‘Star Trek: Voyager’, ‘Yes, Dear’, ‘The Crow, ‘Sabrina’, ‘Sliders’, ‘Dark Skies’ and ‘The Family Guy’.

Following in the footsteps of some of his peers, Don has now directed three feature films. “His first, “The Last Best Sunday”, had its World Premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival, and was a feature film winner at the Telluride IndieFest. “Moola”, starring William Mapother, Shailene Woodley, Treat Williams, Daniel Baldwin, and Curtis Armstrong, premiered at The Newport Beach Film Festival, where it earned Most The Outstanding Achievement In Directing Award. Don also directed “Harley’s Hill”, his first family film, which was recently seen on Showtime, Starz and Encore. In another area, Don has recently gone back to his first love – singing. Don has always loved the standards/swing/big band style of music, and has just mounted his show – “Donny Most Sings And Swings”. He recently performed it at “Catalina’s Jazz Club” in Hollywood, CA…and “Vitello’s Jazz Club”, in Studio City, Los Angeles to great acclaim.
