Med Central Hospital is a very large hospital facility located in Mansfield, Ohio who continues to utilize Barbizon of Akron graduates that have now listed with the Pro-Model & Talent Agency for many of their advertising needs.

The most recent was a comedic shoot that is sure to bring smiles to many faces in Southern Ohio. Barbizon of Akron grads: Dan Jambor, Haedin Delarec, Marlin Jones, and Jim Mizerock got to play construction workers that were dressed in hospital gowns and work boots… that’s right, hospital gowns and work boots!!! You will be able to see these 4 handsome guys in ads and invitations for a new maternity wing opening in the spring of 2011.

The guys reported that it was the most fun they had in a long time at a shoot, especially while making an easy $100.00 an hour!

This is yet another client that reported back to Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. that the guys did a stellar job and were super easy to work with. Barbizon of Akron and Pro-Model & Talent loves to hear positive feedback as that tells us they will keep calling us for future projects!

From The ABC Network To NBC... Barbizon Of Akron Graduate, Shaila Vaidya Is Appearing On Hit Shows: "Desperate Housewives" & "Parenthood"!

Shaila Vaidya who is originally from Wooster, Ohio started her career many years ago here in Akron, Ohio with Barbizon of Akron and Pro-Model & Talent. Shaila currently considers the West Coast home and has been one super busy young lady out in Hollywood!

This past week Shaila wrapped up filming an episode of “Desperate Housewives”; you will be able to see her on the “Let Me Entertain You” episode! Here is what Shaila had to say about working on the famous show: “Working on the set of ‘Desperate Housewives’ was a really cool experience. It was so exciting to get on a show that’s pretty hard to get on and does not have a lot of smaller roles, and I loved working with all of the actors!” Shaila also loved the fact that she had her own trailer for the day! (Check out some of the candid shots from the set.)

Now if that is not exciting enough, Shaila has also shot a national commercial for McDonalds that is airing in different parts of the country.

Last but not least, Shaila booked an episode of the popular NBC show “Parenthood”, with Monica Potter, Lauren Graham, Dax Shepard, and Peter Krause. Shaila said the whole cast and crew were fantastic to work with.

While Shaila stays super busy with the acting she also manages to find time for charitable causes. This fall Shaila and her husband helped organize and participated in the event “Rock for Autism” in Idaho. They had a huge turn out for this very worthwhile cause.

It is always great to see Pro-Model & Talent people giving back to the community! For those of you that want to keep up with all the fun things Shaila is doing you can check out her official Facebook fan page!!

Rock-Paper-Scissors...Barbizon of Akron/Pro-Model & Talent Alumnus Was The Loser Of The Game, But Scores Big With A National Commercial!

Brian Byrnes, originally from Strongsville, Ohio, now calls Los Angeles home. And Los Angeles is treating him well as he just added yet another national commercial to his already impressive list!

In addition to seeing Brian in commercials for Target, UPS, Ikea, Chevy, Hummer and other, you can now see him in the comical Cisco commercial playing "rock-paper-scissors" with a fellow employee prior to a business meeting. Brain is easy to spot in the commercial (shown below) as he was cast as the unfortunate loser of the game - the punishment... not to ruin it, but Brian ends up with a Mohawn at the end of the commercial! And yes, they did shave his head for the commercial!

Brian's personality really comes out in this commercial, and he is thrilled that the commercial is airing Nationwide for all of his friends and family to see.

Another great job and another national commercial to add to his already impressive roster.
