2017.01.011 Ken "Whit" Whitman Will Teach You How to Stand Around for $35

2011.01.011 Ken "Whit" Whitman Will Teach You How to Stand Around for $35
We think most of our readers would have a wide array of rather descriptive adjectives to describe Ken "Whit" Whitman, but "Expert" and "Actor", much less "Expert Actor" would be pretty far down the list.

Nevertheless, our main-man Ken "Whit" Whitman is again trying to sell his services as a consultant for folks wanting to become actors.

"Whit will guid you through the process of becoming a paid film actor. Showing you the ins-and-outs and dos-and-donts on getting started down this road. The class will help you understand the process of acting in front of the camera, and will expedite your ability to get an agent. Cost: $35 a class. 

About Whit Whitman: Whit Whitman has acted in the Walking Dead, Marvel Powers, and the new Tupac Movie releasing this summer."

A quick check of Ken "Whit" Whitman's IMDB page doesn't even list the Walking Dead and Marvel Powers, and "Marvel Powers" isn't even a thing according to a quick web search and IMDB check. It is interesting though that Kenny lists himself as a stand-in for Dywane Johnson. Let that sink in....

...not "Dwayne Johnson", but "Dywane Johnson".

Of course that seems legit, and we do have some evidence of the Walking Dead work, but basically this means most of Ken "Whit" Whitman's "experience" as an actor is literally just standing around. So, for $35 you too can learn the art of standing around.

A reader of NAD sent us this gem, with a bit of an explanation of the Marvel Powers being a low-budget show on a rather small viewing platform that didn't get much traction.

  1. FWIW, Marvel Powers is a thing. It was actually truncated to "Powers" when it aired and was PSN's first scripted original programming. It's not very good.

    1. Actually, it was never "Marvel Powers," it was always just "Powers." It's a comic published by Image Comics (not Marvel). I've heard the show wasn't great, but the comic is fantastic.

      Ken has been bragging about his gig in "Marvel Powers" since he moved to Atlanta, and I've called him out several times on it, but he continues to just copy and paste the same mistake about his own resume - about a gig that apparently is legit, just not by that name.

    2. I stand corrected. Regardless, yes, it's real. And, yes, it's pretty awful.

  2. Ken is credited as "prison inmate" in "All Eyez on Me" (Benny Boom, dir.)
