Eric Schettl is an actor who transformed into a hip hop artist for a role he’s set to play a in an upcoming movie called The American Dream. Presumably he’s a kind of method actor. There’s a video below where he performs over a beat by producer “TRAV Tha God.” Schettl received instruction and mentoring from Trav and B.I. Beats in preparation for his upcoming role. It may not seem like much at first, but Schettl’s performative transformation is impressive when contrasted with his prior film roles and skits, many of which present radically different characterizations. Her certainly has the aesthetic down. Anyway, there’s not much in the way of actual releases available from this guy to comment on, but watch for him in the upcoming film, The American Dream where we’ll get a chance to further assess the fruits of his ventures into the world of hip hop.
