While wrestling on tour Scott was approached by an acting agent after seeing his wrestling on television, the agent said Scott should take his skills into the arts. At first, Schwartz was reluctant to change careers, wanting to retire as a wrestler but gave it a try.


Due to his look, size, agility, and ability to handle dialogue, he has been able to obtain roles as the "bad guy" in many films and television projects. He is known for his work in such films and TV shows as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise, and The Scorpion King,  among others.


Scott  is probably most recognized for his role as 'Bruiser' in the films Ocean's Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen. He has appeared in such big budget films as Spider-Man, Fire Down Below, Starsky & Hutch, and Fun with Dick and Jane.


Scott has truly become the ULTIMATE TV THUG   and coming in just under 7 ft you will know when our "Thug" has entered the room.

 Lauren and Ethan of Thousand Faces Cosplay put the 'play' in cosplay with an emphasis on bringing their characters to life.


How you ask?

 Through performance and bodybuilding, they strive to recreate their beloved characters as much as possible, from imitating voices and memorizing lines for Krieg and Tiny Tina to packing on muscle and growing a full beard for Kratos, they do it. 


Guess what?  That's not the best part.

Through their print sales, they raise money for animal focused charities, like Tenth Life Cat Shelter, the Endangered Wolf Sanctuary, and currently Crowne Ridge Tiger Sanctuary.
