Returning to Law & Order – Season 23 Premiere 

I had a great shoot recently for another scene in Law & Order. They brought back my co-starring role, Reporter #2, in the Season 23 premiere episode. It’s scheduled to air on 1/18/24 at 8pm EST on NBC. Many thanks to casting directors Philip Huffman and Shira Steiner with Jonathan Strauss Casting, and my wonderful talent manager, Jaime Baker.

Poe by Candlelight was a blast and we had sold out audiences both nights. I received this nice letter of recommendation after our performance in Lewes. Thank you David!

Loretta, the Yodeling Cowgirl 

I had a fantastic time finally being on stage again with a live audience, even if for 1 night, after such a long pandemic shutdown. I played “Howard” in the staged reading of the new play Loretta the Yodeling Cowgirl, by Vita Patrick Morales at Centenary Stage Company, directed by Mikaela Kafka with a wonderfully talented (and fully vaccinated) cast. There was a Q&A with the cast and director afterward.

Here is a link to my recent commercial for BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. It started airing on TV and online late February.

National commercial booking 

I had a callback last week on a commercial job for a nationwide restaurant chain and brewhouse. I found out Friday that I booked it! We shot in Michigan overnight Wed into Thursday morning 1/16, and I’m settled back in NY now. It was a fantastic director team and crew. Everything went well and the client and ad agency were pleased. It was a fun and good experience all around.

“Matt Baxter Luceno does an excellent job playing Mortimer, the serious leading man who gets caught up in unusual circumstances. His comedic timing is superb.”  –  Mal Knapp, Exit Zero
