Ben Sharples can most recently be seen in Takashi Shimizu’s horror film, Flight 7500. He is the co-writer and star of the short film Time Capsule, which premiered at Regards sur le Cinéma du Monde in Rouen, France as well as the director of Not Necessary, which won Best Comedy Short at the Action on Film International Film Festival.
When he’s not making movies, Ben can be found on a tennis court.
Jake Head, a Worcester, MA native and graduate of Norwich University in Northfield, VT where he played football for the Cadets, can also be seen in the bowling comedy 12 Pound Balls. In Gentlemen’s Fury, he plays Dwayne, the charismatic leader of the league.
"Dwayne was amazing. He was motivated, charming and violent but totally out of his mind. His passion and belief in ‘The Fury’ kept him grounded and real. Clearly an ex-football linebacker with no direction after retirement. I don't judge the character while working, but after seeing the finished product Dwayne is a motivated idiot and it's glorious. With the help of Ben (The Director and Co-Star) we created one of the best characters I've ever played, and Dwayne will be an iconic character in the sports comedies genre.” - Jake Head

Audrey Ellis Fox, a native of Los Angeles and graduate of Brown University who also studied at Rhode Island School of Design and the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, Czech Republic, is a filmmaker, writer, musician and artist in addition to being an actress. In Gentlemen’s Fury, she plays Julie, the fiery girlfriend of the film’s protagonist who introduces him to the league.
“I had so much fun playing Julie. She's mischievous, but still lovable because she's so messed up. She's the definition of a psycho girlfriend.” - Audrey Ellis Fox
Kyle Leibovitch, who was born and raised in Calabasas, CA and graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in theater, currently lives and works in New York in both theater and film. In Gentlemen’s Fury, he plays Fabricio, an Italian player whose understanding of English is a work in progress, making for a lot of funny lines.
“Gentlemen's Fury was one of those experiences where every moment was a blast. How can it not be when you're playing a lovable Italian tennis player who isn't the brightest bulb in the box. We had so much fun shooting it and I know you're going to have just as much fun watching.” - Kyle Leibovitch
Tasishi Mizuno, who was born and raised in Japan, has enjoyed a successful career in film and television since moving to Los Angeles, acting in such movies as Pirates of the Caribbean and Clint Eastwood’s Letters From Iwo Jima. In Gentlemen’s Fury, he plays Helicopter, a player in the league who only speaks Japanese, resulting in some humorous confusion for the film’s protagonist who doesn’t understand him.
“I was honored to work with such a talented cast and crew. I had a great experience playing the role of Helicopter. I thought it was going to be tough to play but the director and producer let me play the character how I prepared, and so I could enjoy it.” - Tasishi Mizuno
Scotty Tovar, who grew up in Miami, FL and New York City, is also known for rapping under the moniker of Benny White. In Gentlemen’s Fury, he plays Memo, the right hand man of the league’s ringleader.
“This movie was extra special to me because it was one of the first productions that I was a part of when I first moved to LA, and the one that got me into the Actors Union. I loved playing Memo because he’s Dwayne’s right hand man, and the most loyal member of the group. He’s little brains and all balls, everything great about the Fury.” - Scotty Tovar
J.B. Bauersfeld, a Topeka native and graduate of Emporia State University, enjoyed a 10-year career as an award winning sports broadcaster at WIBW-TV in Topeka before moving to LA in 2014, where he has quickly gained traction in the entertainment industry, appearing in The People v. O.J. Simpson and national commercials for Southwest Airlines and Kentucky Fried Chicken. In Gentlemen’s Fury, he plays Rudy Nudeo, one of the core group of players in the league who have all been excused from the tour for questionable behavior, in Rudy’s case fleeing a crime scene.
“I was so excited to work on Gentlemen's Fury. It was my first big role in a Hollywood movie, so I'll never forget the experience. Merging my sports background along with my acting career was the perfect way to get started on the right foot. Rudy is a bit more subdued than some of the other guys in the Fury and the perfect puzzle piece to complete the crazy picture. Plus, perhaps most exciting, I got to pull out the Australian accent I've been working on since I was 10 years old!” - J.B. Bauersfeld

Miranda Parham, a native of Knoxville, TN and a graduate of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX, where she studied theater, has already enjoyed success in film & TV since moving to LA, appearing on Conan and co-founding the improv team Invasion of Privacy. In Gentlemen’s Fury, she plays Kathleen, the entitled and pushy fiancé of the film’s protagonist.
“I had a great time breathing life into this unapologetically awful character who thinks that everything she does is golden. My favorite Kathleen line is, ‘That's not going to get me my condo in Brentwood.’ Yeah, that pretty much sums up her priorities.” - Miranda Parham

In Gentlemen’s Fury, he plays the pivotal role of the protagonist’s father - a man who is responsible for Aaron’s short fuse on the court but equally committed to his transformation out of it.
“What I loved most about this role is that this was an honest father who loved his son. And because the arc of the character went beyond this Life- I was able to play both a struggling, flawed but striving person and a fully grown man who literally came out okay on the other side.” - Paul Parducci
