Barbizon of Akron Graduate Mike Lupton Making It BIG in Los Angeles

Well, well, well just listen to what Barbizon of Akron Alum Mike Lupton has been up to since he made the BIG move out to LA from his home town, Fairview Park, Ohio… This talented laddie has not only been working like crazy making appearances on cool shows like, 90210, and the ABC program, “The Middle”. In addition to television appearances Mike was also featured in a film titled: “Sweet Pea” produced specifically for the Breast Cancer Awareness Society – needless to say it was not only terrific experience for Mike but quite humbling to be a part of such a special production with a meaningful cause and audience. We all know that fervent auditioning is the only way to ensure you get booked for a job, and auditioning has been the name of the game for Mike who is up for roles in several projects/tv shows including: Big Momma’s House 3 which he earned a callback for, the new “Transformers” movie, Gray’s Anatomy, NCIS, Cold Case Files, a new Sour Patch Kids commercial, AND he is up for the role of “Williard” in the re-make of “Footloose”. Wow wee! What a busy dude! How did he get so darn lucky? A terrific manager – Mike gained representation by his current manager due to his participation in the IMTA convention with PMTM. Sooo needless to say watch for Mike everywhere! With all of these awesome opportunities and auditions he’s slowly taking Hollywood by storm.
