*Actor Baron Jay Littleton has just wrapped on a new role portraying Kanye West in Ermillio Ferrari’s comedy spoof ‘Not Another Celebrity Movie.’
It’s a hilarious new plot where Charlie Sheen becomes obsessed with the idea that Justin Bieber is his biological son. What makes it so refreshingly appealing and captivating is that the entire cast is played by celebrity look-alikes. The storyline: Sheen recruits famous friends like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Kanye West, and Donald Trump to help him kidnap ‘the Bieb.’
Littleton co-stars with Danielle Owens-Reed as Bieber, Cheryl Lyone as Lady Gaga, and Vida Guerra as Rosalita (Sheen’s housemaid). Cast members include Chelsea Wallace Galey, Scott Cooper Ryan, Tori Black, John Di Domenico, and Lina Godouse. Other characterizations include Ashton Kutcher, Jimmy Kimmel, Justin Timberlake, Oprah Winfrey, Paris Hilton, Robert De Niro, and Usher Raymond.
A Zachary Zwerdlow production, Ferrari previously helmed ‘Baby On Board,’ and ‘But I’m A Cheerleader.’ This new uproarious film is sure to be a standout in his repertoire.
You may have seen Littleton on the George Lopez late night show as a look-alike Kanye spouting off in various scenarios like Kanye himself did during that infamous moment onstage with singer Taylor Swift. You may have even seen him on TV Guide Network’s Celebrity Look-A-Like Contest as P. Diddy. In either case the resemblances are uncanny, and Littleton comes across very convincingly with the right moves, gestures, and confidence to pull it off! He produced and starred in a film made for TV and DVD titled ‘Safe House’ released in 2011. (Please click on the following link to see the trailer: www.thesafehousemovie.com.)
When asked which director and producer he’d like to work with in the near future, Littleton replied, “Jerry Bruckheimer who is from my hometown Detroit, and Ridley Scott for whom I was office Production Assistant on ‘Black Hawk Down’ when I first moved to California as a walk-on.”
Littleton (who prefers to be called Baron Jay) will never forget a conversation he had with legendary Academy Award winner Sidney Poitier:
“We were on the green at the Hillcrest Country Club talking about being an actor and filmmaker in Los Angeles. Sidney asked what would I do if it took 2, 4, 6, 8 or more years [to make it], what are you going to do? I said keep going. He advised, ‘you’ve got to keep going and never give up…I will be watching you.’”
From the looks of it, I guess one could say Baron Jay is here to stay!
