Gary Sturgis delivers a show stopping performance as Âbad boyÂ Jamison Milton Jackson in Tyler PerryÂs 2005 motion picture release ÂDiary of a Mad Black Woman,Â which opened at Number 1 at the box office nationwide, earlier this year, and is scheduled for release on DVD on June 28, 2005.
The buzz on Sturgis' performance in "Diary" is growing. SturgisÂ powerful portrayal of the menacing Jackson captivates the audience and leaves a lasting impression long after he has left the screen. Before his face is revealed, SturgisÂ ominous voice captures the audienceÂs attention and has them asking the question ÂWho is the man behind that voice?Â Charismatic and driven, Sturgis began his pursuit into the entertainment industry with the expectation of achieving stardom solely as an actor. However a twist of fate gave him an opportunity to put his voice, called aggressive, sharp, menacing and beautiful all at once, to good use. Sturgis says, ÂI had no idea a living could be made from voice acting, but once I started, jobs began coming in.Â
Voiceover credits include eight years as the UPN Monday night line up announcer for such shows as ÂGirlfriends,Â ÂMoesha,Â ÂThe ParkersÂ and ÂThe HughleyÂs." Commercial spots include Ford, Disneyland, AT&T, Dodge, PacBell and Skittles. Motion picture spots include ÂKill Bill,Â ÂThe Others,Â ÂTwo Can Play That GameÂ and ÂBones.Â Animation spots include the voice of Ebon in ÂStatic Shock,Â ÂBatman Beyond,Â and ÂScooby Doo and the Phantom Virus.Â A multi-talented artist, Sturgis' voice-over and acting successes have paved the way for other entertainment ventures.
Now Sturgis releases his debut CD ÂFahrenheit" as rapper ÂIlluminati.Â He is the CEO of Predator Records, which currently has five artists on its roster with scheduled fall 2005 releases. In addition Sturgis teaches voice-over classes for aspiring voice-over artists. Gary "Illuminati" Sturgis also has written several films, in which he will star and direct, for which he is seeking distribution.
From the film set to the booth, the saga continues.
