Bethany Kay

Bethany Kay got her wit from thirteen years of Catholic school, her smirk from her Jersey family, and her curves from a very healthy love of her mom's tortellini with lemon cream sauce. 

When she's not working on shows like Boardwalk Empire, Difficult People, Gotham, and Dietland, she is probably creating some devised theatre and clowning projects with friends or lending her business sense to any number of coaching clients she helps to make sense of this show business life: current clients have appeared on Broadway and in regional houses as well as on significant arcs onscreen. Recent: I KNOW THIS MUCH IS TRUE (Dir. Derek Cianfrance), MURDERVILLE (InstaMiniseries), Upcoming: PUDDYSTICKS (opp. Dan Bakkedahl), THE LIST (Universal opp. Clark Backo), BOOK FAIR (with TandemVision)

Joshua Schubart

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Joshua Schubart has been working as a professional actor for over a decade. Joshua has been seen in projects ranging from indie films to walking the boards at the Metropolitan Opera. Some of his recent work includes a recurring role in the Amazon series The Tick, and appearances in Seven Seconds (Netflix) and High Maintenance (HBO). His voice can also be heard on a long list of audiobooks available on Amazon Audible​, including Blue Summer, Lorelei and Blaze of Ecstasy. In addition to acting, Joshua is a highly skilled stunt man/stage combatant, and co-founder of the production company 2 Ladies & A Giant.

Joshua had a tough childhood, growing up homeless and in the foster care system. At 14, his foster parents put him in Catholic school, and his life took a turn for the better. He discovered acting in his early teens, as an escape from his day-to-day challenges. He would often say that acting literally saved his life, giving him the drive and motivation to make his dreams come true.

Joshua hopes his work in front and behind the camera will open doors for larger people in the industry, break the stereotypes, and prove that they are more than just the funny or bad guys.
