A few people have asked me to share a little about me working on the set of “ABC’s Nashville” so here goes… My experience working on “Nashville” was pretty incredible to say the least. I’ve been on it three times. I was a police officer in season 1, a CMT reporter in Season 2, and a producer in Season 3. My last time on the set was probably my favorite. The episode was directed by Mario Van Peebles. I remembered him from the 1991 movie “New Jack City”. Working with him was truly amazing and surreal. He said to me several times “C’mon Matt this is all you!” He was an encourager and he really inspired me.

Hayden Panettiere was also really kind and down to earth. I was shocked when she mentioned that she remembered me from Season 2. I was like “really lil’ ole me?” The last time I saw her she was pregnant so she was eating a lot of chicken lol. Speaking of eating, they fed me like a king! All the meals were catered and all the food was delicious... especially the Salmon!

I can also be seen in a movie with Val Kilmer called “The 4thDimension”, and Flavor Flav’s film called “Nite Tales the Movie”. Ha-ha, I never thought I’d see the day that I could say “Hey I’m in a movie with Flavor Flav” lol. Two years ago I played a funeral attendee in Nicole Kidman’s “Stoker” unfortunately they cut the scene that I was in.  I’ve also had the honor of working with Tim McGraw in a JBL web commercial and have been in a couple of music videos and print campaigns too.  I even have an IMDB page just for fun!
