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 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.”

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.

Excerpt:

— To read the full interview: click here!

As for Michael, he took finding his voice literally, through his passion for singing. “I always wanted to be a singer… ever since I was a little kid,” he told VMAN. A member of his church knew this and one day asked the aspiring singer to join his acting class. Cimino agreed. Having several role models to look up to, Michael credits one, in particular, his older cousin Jon-Jon, who serves more as a brotherly figure. Michael describes him as a charismatic, funny, and outgoing gay man. Reminiscing, he says, “I just remember wanting and trying to be like him, trying to be a person that maybe has an impact on people.” He shares with honesty, “Jon-Jon is a huge reason why I am the person I am today;” crediting his cousin who welcomed conversations and shared personal experiences that helped to build the character of Victor.
