Barbara Kerr Condon *
Barbara first began demonstrating her eye for selecting choice literary projects at age 12 where she was a beloved recurring panelist on highly rated CBS’s Kid Critics. As an adult she found her way on to the board of Women In Film and collaborated on several PSA campaigns for battered women’s awareness.
As an Army wife living in Germany, Barbara worked as the Director of The Performing Arts Theatre for the U.S. Army’s facility in Worms. During that time she produced numerous plays and stage shows. She also produced touring shows to provide entertainment for the soldiers and their families who were in isolated areas. Worms was the location for all USO stopovers and military entertainment in the area. Barbara was the producer who liaisoned with those incoming shows. Bearing in mind the U.S. Military is the largest theatre system in the world, tripling London or Broadway, Barbara became quite confident in her skills as a producer.
Barbara has written and produced 10 one woman plays. She toured with them in Europe and the USA. The reviews of these shows were universally very positive. In addition, she has produced and starred in several dinner theatre shows that toured in the Southeastern USA. Barbara has produced many large special events ranging from variety shows, musical reviews, corporate interactive mystery dinner theatre nights, and performance/lecture events for colleges. These all involved performers, music, and often taping the shows. She wrote the narrative that tied everything together to make a cohesive program for each event. These experiences contributed to her decision to relocate to Los Angeles, CA
Turning her attention from stage to screen, Barbara found herself both acting and producing in Los Angeles. Since arriving in Hollywood, Barbara has produced six short films.
Her film project, Doria, which she executive produced and in which she starred, was a winner of the Flickering Image Festival in 2004 and was written up in Variety. Doria has also played at several other festivals, some by invitation.
Her most recent film project was Just Desserts, which she executive produced and in which she starred. Just Desserts now has worldwide theatrical distribution, and a TV contract is currently being negotiated. Family is another of her film projects which she co produced and in which she starred.
Television roles on AMC/s Mad Men, HBO’s Big Love, NBC’s ER, CBS’s 7th Heaven, NBC’s The Others, Lifetime’s Unsolved Mysteries, and repeat appearances on The Tonight Show, have quickly given Barbara notice. Her film roles range from appearances in Universal’s Red Dragon and The Coen brothers’ Intolerable Cruelty, to supporting roles in films like Cineville's The Affair and Brooklyn Reptile's Boppin at the Glue Factory. Another project of Barbara's is Family, which she co-produced and in which she starred. Barbara was again in front of the camera with her role as Mrs. Cee in My Homework Ate My Dog.

“Romantic comedies are generally stereotypical. So I am excited about bringing this character to life – a not so stereotypical character. I’m thrilled to be part of this film, a story about nice people, falling in love, in their salt and pepper years.” ~ Muse Watson*
Equally comfortable on the theater stage as he is in front of the camera, Muse Watson first gained notice with several strong performances on stage that helped pave the way for a feature film and television career. His diverse roles in Sommersby, Something to Talk About, Assassins, & Rosewood brought him mainstream recognition but it was the villainous “Ben Willis” in the trendy thriller “I Know What You Did Last Summer” films and “From Dusk Till Dawn 2″ that propelled him in the limelight as a chameleonic actor. He made equally impressionable appearances in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Sundance Film-Festival award-winner Songcatcher, challenging himself by playing unique characters.
Transitioning to the small screen, Watson delivered stellar performances in several made-for-television movies including Blind Vengeance and Justice in a Small Town; and the television series, American Gothic, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, Matlock, The Lazarus Man, JAG, Walker Texas Ranger, Ghost Whisperer, CSI, and The Mentalist. Going on to land his most notorious TV roles as “Mike Franks” in the award winning drama NCIS and “Charles Westmoreland” in the Emmy & Golden Glo bes nominated & People’s Choice Awards – winner Prison Break.
