Watch Michael Scratch Movies Online
Having begun studying theatre and acting from the early '90's, Michael didn't begin his pursuit in film/television until 2004, first opting to pursue and dedicate his early life to service as a professional firefighter.Having had a number of smaller and commercial roles in his first few years, his first major role came in 2008 as the lead character Scott in 'the Body Machine' which was later nominated at the Banff International Film Festival as well as at the Canadian Gemini awards. In this film, Michael performed all of his own stunts, which included getting hit a dozen times in hockey as well as riding around on a Ducati for 2 full days (not an easy task when following moving camera vehicle with less than 5 feet separating it's bumpers from the motorcycle).That same year saw him appearing as supporting character Robert Armstrong in HBO/Cinemax's 'Forbidden Science'. He has since appeared as lead character Jason in 'Lingerie' with the same network in 2009, while we also were able to see Michael play the 'alpha wolf' in television feature film 'we'rewolves: the dark survivors'. His latest roles in post production have allowed him to display a darker side, having been the archtype villain Adrian Black in feature film 'Kenneyvile' by Brooks Hunter (trailers available on youtube), as well as lead character 'Lucifer' (the devil) in a comedic short entitle 'the perfect game' and an intense US customs officer (ICE agent Costello) in 'Anchor Baby' which won award for best film at the Harlem Film Festival and the award of merit at the L.A. cinema festival in 2010.Though not a model, Michael was chosen in a search for 'real people' to adorn the covers of famed romance novels 'Harlequin' in 2009. He's enjoyed working with the creative and talented photographers and artistic team saying 'it's really opened my eyes to how much emoting models actually do' in this role. He's appeared in over 2 dozen covers since that time.Michael balances his acting life by raising his beautiful twin daughters and continuing his work as a 17 year veteran professional firefighter in London Ontario.Incredibly appreciative and grateful for every new role that comes his way and the experiences that come with them, Michael continues to be a student to his passion and craft as an actor. His intention continues to bring as inspiring and compelling a performance as possible through living moments of truth and creativity to the audiences that watch the films he's been a part of.
