March 04, 2021 NEW SHOOT: Michael in “INFRINGE: Anthropology of Hair” Shoot!

Michael finally took apart in his first photoshoot of the year, and as his first shoot of the year, he decided to go with Infringe: Anthropology of Hair and teamed up with Austin Martinez (his good friend) to photograph his soon-to-be iconic looks.

You can view all 11 photos in our gallery now!

Anissa Salazar had some words to say about the shoot with Michael:

“I’ve been working closely with Michael for the last 5 months. I’m in admiration of his performance as an actor, his kindness as a human being, and his confidence. The idea of this shoot was influenced by Michael’s talent as an artist. Transcending into multiple faces is part of his craft. That could be physically, mentally, and even emotionally. With that enters the conversion. Hair, makeup and an opulent wardrobe are all forms of expression that fuse with the performance.

Cindy Sherman being an enormous mentor of mine, also influenced me. Her ability to orchestrate beautiful photographs where she is the photographer, hair stylist, makeup artist, costume designer and model. Everyone, and everything are allowed to feel beauty. As an artist, I too find beauty in all identities, colours, and sizes. Barriers can and should be broken, narrow definitions can be expanded – all is infinite. The looks we created were inspired by Michael’s ability to evolve into these impassioned characters. When the camera hits Michael – he is vulnerable, raw, and tender.

Our photographer is Austin Martinez. He’s a family friend of Michael’s, and extremely talented photographer. We were joined with our friends, lovely model Denise, and talented makeup artist Alexandra French.”

November 08, 2020 Michael to star in podcast, “Black Box”

Michael has been announced for a new project titled Black Box which is a scripted science fiction podcast. You can read the entire article below or on the original website over at Deadline.

Joel McHale (Community), Michael Cimino (Love, Victor), Brec Bassinger (Stargirl), Chosen Jacobs (It) and Jacob Bertrand (Cobra Kai) lead a voice cast for the upcoming scripted science fiction podcast Black Box from Reverb Podcasts and Soundproof Media.

Described as a homage to Spielbergian ’80s adventure films, the pod will follow four unwitting teenagers who stumble upon the wreckage of a crashed time machine and are thrust into the middle of a conspiracy that threatens to unhinge time itself.

Cimino, Bassenger, Jacobs and Bertrand play the lead teenagers, while McHale plays a brilliant scientist whose ego and ambition spiral down a villainous path. The audio drama is written and directed by Brian Siegele and produced by Siegele and Chase Kinser for emerging content studios Reverb Podcasts and Soundproof Media.

Recording for Black Box began in August, making the production among the first podcast projects approved by SAG-AFTRA for full cast studio recording in the COVID era. The producers are said to have implemented rigorous testing and safety protocols in addition to building transparent barriers in the studio so the cast could record together in person.

Production is still in progress with additional casting being finalized now. The eight-episode first season is projected to premiere in early 2021.

“We wanted the performers to play off each other in a way that remote recording doesn’t allow, but also ensure a risk-free working space,” noted Siegele. “We are thankful to have been able to accomplish this with guidance from SAG-AFTRA and coordination from our incredible cast.”

Audio company Reverb was founded last year. Soundproof Media is a new content firm focused on audio, TV and film projects.

McHale is repped by WME for voice and Ziffren Brittenham. Cimino is repped by Megan Silverman Management, CAA and Lawyer Chris Abramson at FTSLLP. Bassinger is repped by Industry Entertainment, WORK Management and CESD. Jacobs is repped by Untitled Entertainment and Osbrink. Bertrand is repped by Zero Gravity Management and Osbrink.

September 22, 2020 Michael signs with Creative Artists Agency!

Michael has officially signed with Creative Artists Agency, most known as CAA. Deadline exclusively reported Michael signing with them on September 17th.

EXCLUSIVE: Michael Cimino, star of Hulu’s breakout series Love, Victor, has signed with CAA.

Cimino stars in the title role in the series, an offshoot from the 2018 feature Love, Simon. Created by This Is Us executive producers/co-showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who wrote the movie based on Becky Albertalli’s young-adult novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Love, Victor is one of the top binged shows on Hulu in 2020. It was recently renewed for a second season.

On the film side, Cimino can be seen in horror thriller Annabelle Comes Home, opposite Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, and produced by James Wan. He also sang the song “Everything I Own” written by David Gates briefly in the film.

Cimino is one of the founding members of the nonprofit organization We The Movement LA, formed amid the late May Los Angeles protests in response to the police killing of George Floyd.

Cimino continues to be repped by Megan Silverman Management and attorney Chris Abramson at Felker, Toczek, Suddleson and Abramson.

September 01, 2020 Michael Featured in LA Mag’s “Meet the New Hollywood A-List”

Michael did a quick photoshoot and video interview with LA Mag recently and they just released it earlier today and we have now uploaded the photos to the gallery and you can watch the short video below!

When Michael Cimino moved to L.A. two years ago, he spent his nights working as the mechanical-bull operator at a West Hollywood steak house. Now the actor is turning heads as the main character in Hulu’s LGBTQ drama Love, Victor, which debuted June 17. The show, a spin-off of the 2018 film Love, Simon, follows teen Victor Salazar as he struggles with his sexuality in a conservative Latin household. While Cimino, who is of Puerto Rican and Italian German descent, has been lauded for his performance, he’s quick to say “I still feel like I’m just a kid from Vegas.”

Michael is featured in Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood 2020 and he’s featured on #9 from the top even though there is no official ranking but I like to think that he was fresh on the author’s mind if he made it at number nine out of fifty-two. You can view Michael’s excerpt below, as well as a link to the full article.

MICHAEL CIMINO
actor

Cimino’s starring role as a questioning Latinx teen in Hulu’s “Love, Victor” has been a breakthrough for the 20-year-old. “It’s been great seeing all this positive recognition for the show and how it’s affected people. It’s an honor to represent the LGBTQ community,” says the actor. “I want to be the person that represents their struggle, their story, their ethnicity, whatever it may be, and to represent them accurately by depicting them in a way that’s true to life.” He recently helped launch We the Movement L.A., which has raised money to aid Black-owned businesses in the Pico-Redondo area of Los Angeles.
