The Cast

Rob Ceriello

As David Bushell


Rob Ceriello was born and raised in Farmingdale, NY located in Long Island. Rob didn’t consider seriously pursuing acting as a career until Louis Burke, a former Broadway producer and his Shakespeare Acting Professor, saw him perform a monologue from Macbeth and encouraged him to pursue acting. Rob took his professor’s advice and began auditioning for any theater role he could play.

After a successful run of shows playing the role of George Gibbs in Our Town, Rob auditioned for and landed the lead role in his first film, The Mercury Cycle. The grueling shooting schedule, along with the challenge to portray the realistic complexities of the character of David Bushell, taught Rob more about characterization than he had previously known. After that, for over two years, Rob began acting in many theater productions for regional theaters in NY, gaining much recognition for his unique portrayal of such characters as Edmund in A Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Corey Phillips in House On A Cliff, and Simon Bliss in Hayfever.

In the fall of 2011, Rob wanted to begin working on original characters for film projects again and started taking roles in short films and student films in NYC. Along with consistently auditioning, Rob is currently completing production on two feature-length films entitled The Mean of Green and In Bed With Lana.
