FROM STAR WARS BOUNTY HUNTER TO ONE OF THE STARS ON ANONYMOUS KILLERS, DOMINIC PACE GRABS THE SPOTLIGHT IN OCTOBER
Dominic Pace has been a consistent working Character Actor for over 20 years in Hollywood. His credits range from Guest Stars on Fox’s 911 and Deputy, Navy: NCIS Los Angeles, Prison Break, Cold Case, NYPD Blue, and Desperate Housewives to name a few.
In September of 2018, Dominic received a dream of a lifetime as he got to live out being in the Star Wars universe. Cast in the hit Television Series, The Mandalorian for Disney Plus, he played a featured, one-of-a-kind Bounty Hunter designed by the Emmy nominated team of Stephen Porro (Costumes), and Make-Up Artist, Brian Sipe with his team at Legacy Effects. The Bounty Hunter was nicknamed Gekko due to its’ makeup pattern, and Pace’s original plan for 2020 was to visit over 20 ComicCons around the world to promote the character.
Once COVID hit and the Film Industry/ Comic Conventions shut down, Pace came up with a plan to help small business Comic Book Shops throughout the country. Instead of charging an appearance fee for each shop like most actors would Pace offered to attend over 50 Comic Book Shops, with a promise of offering 15% of all merchandise sales from his autograph. The first tour covering 15 states was a tremendous success as it raised over $10,000 for local businesses. This September, Pace is doing one more tour before he heads back to Hollywood to begin filming two Feature Films, Bonded, and Manifest.
Along with the $10,000 earned for Small Businesses around the country, Pace also raised over $1,000 for The Peter Mayhew Foundation, along with The Make A Wish Foundation. His second national tour will work alongside Make A Wish Foundation one more time, along with AFLAC’s Cancer Research Fund, associated with Bantha Bricks and The Atlanta Brick Company.
In December of 2014, Pace was cast in a Short Film written and directed by fellow New York native, A.R. Hilton. Pace drove out to Las Vegas to shoot for two days in what would become a four-year journey with the Director and story. Starring as Romero Scaranelli, Anonymous Killers is a story about four seasoned killers and one hapless professor who awakes in chains to discover they are part of a demented experiment orchestrated by a maniacal, mysterious captor. To decide their fate, they must share the motives behind their crimes as they face the judgment of their peers. The rules are non-negotiable and the outcome is clear: live or die. The moral compass spins frantically as all fight to justify their lives before the final vote is cast.
“It was a privilege working with A.R. Hilton, and I’m excited to see the response of the film due to the difficult social times in our country. I love that it goes so much deeper than the conventional horror film. This is a film viewers will be talking about weeks after. No matter your social or political views, everyone will walk away with a different perspective and opinion. I believe genuine discussions are what our country needs right now, and the more, the better.”
Anonymous Killers will premiere October 6th with a limited “Theater At Home” experience and have a wider on-demand release later in the month.
