Resident Evil to Spreading Good: Johann Urb

 

When he’s not too busy being the rugged, handsome Leon Kennedy from “Resident Evil: Retribution,” or guest starring on NCIS, Johann Urb is busy trying to spread good vibes and good looks.

Let’s just say I’m working on getting out a positive and inspiring message about how to live life,” Urb said in an interview with Daman.

And Urb puts his money where his mouth is too. He volunteers with The Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition (GWHFC) an amazing organization that has served food to the homeless every single day, since 1987. Not only do they meet people’s immediate needs, but GWHFC also tries to get people into housing and provides mobile health care.

He also has tried to spread positivity through his Instagram, which features his philanthropy and volunteering efforts, as well as some fun adventures he has out in nature!

The Estonian-American actor art in his genes, the son of a musician, and he started off his career as a model in New York, before eventually studying theater at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

He has also starred in many TV shows and movies, including World Wide Motion Pictures’ Rusty Steel, alongside Paul Campbell and Dean Stockwell in this riveting adventure, which is set in Romania on their deceased uncle’s yacht. Some of Johann Urb’s other notable movie and TV appearances include CSI: Miami, NCIS, and Zoolander.

MUSICIAN WILLIE NELSON TO APPEAR IN “ZOOLANDER 2” ALONGSIDE ALL STAR CAST

 

The “On The Road Again” singer is confirmed to appear in a small role in the sequel to the 2001 comedy film.

In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, musician Willie Nelson confirmed that he had been invited to join Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller on location of the new film in Italy. The musician states that he and Wilson have been friends and neighbors throughout the years, regularly hanging out together at Nelson’s home in Maui playing poker and chess. Wilson personally invited Nelson to join the filming, and Nelson agreed without hesitation.

The Oscar-nominee and Grammy Award winner has been in numerous films, such as “Stagecoach”, “Red Headed Stranger”, and “Barbarosa”.

Nelson is also a large advocate for human and animal rights. He advocated against the eviction of immigrant farmers and destruction of the largest urban farm in America in the 2009 documentary film, “Welcome to Eden”. Nelson has rescued and rehabilitated over 70 horses headed to slaughter as well.

Willie Nelson recently released “It's A Long Story: My Life”, an autobiography about the musician and songwriter’s story.

The 42nd edition of Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic will also take place in Austin, Texas at the Circuit of The Americas’ Austin360 Amphitheater this year.

“Zoolander 2” is set to open in February 2016. Willie Nelson will not be the only big name to be a part of the comedy sequel, as the musician is set to star alongside Will Ferrell, Olivia Munn, Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen, Penelope Cruz, and Justin Bieber.
