LOS ANGELES, - Brett Stimely portrays JFK, who supplied military equipment/strategy to the rebels that help end the worst Dominican Republican dictatorship in Kill the Dictator/El Teniente Amado. Brett Stimely has captured audiences with life-like representations of JFK in four films, including blockbusters Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Watchmen and the just-released Tom Hanks-produced Parkland.
After six weeks, the break-out film Kill the Dictator continues its number-one lead in the box office in theDominican Republic. Based on a true story, JFK involved the dictator’s right-hand aide, Lt. Guerrero(Amaury Nolasco, Transformers, Prison Break) to end the bloodiest rule by General Trujillo, who was responsible for 50,000 deaths. Kill the Dictator was filmed in both English and Spanish providing authenticity as well as being shot entirely in the Dominican Republic.
Brett Stimely has nearly become a shoe-in as JFK where he has already been in this role for the $181M Watchmen, $1.1B Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Peter Landesman’s directed Parkland.Brett Stimely’s talent expands beyond acting with last year’s multi-award-winning film that he wrote, starred in and produced Ray Bradbury’s Kaleidoscope.
