Kevin is a Marine Corps veteran and is originally from St. Louis, MO. Kevin started as a performer on the musical stage as a bass player and vocalist for the band “Disober” before moving to Los Angeles to pursue his career as an actor. “Future Man” follows Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson), a janitor by day and a gamer by night, who is recruited by mysterious visitors to travel through time to prevent the extinction of humanity. Kevin plays recurring character ‘Blaze’.


“Future Man” premiered on November 14, 2017.

Tell us about ‘Future Man’. What is the Hulu series about?

Future Man is about a janitor that gets recruited by mysterious visitors to help save humanity by going on a wild time-traveling ride!

Who do you play on ‘Future Man’?

I play the character of “Blaze” that is from the 80s and becomes best friends with Wolf (played by Derek Wilson), who is a soldier from the future.

How was it working with the cast? Do you have a favorite on-set story?

An amazing cast to work with that really went for it and did not hold back. My favorite moment for me was when I heard Seth Rogens’ very recognizable laugh after one of my lines. That’s when it got real for me. Haha.

What is your favorite thing about the show ‘Future Man’ that is going to be a must watch for the audience?

The nostalgia factor alone will be enough to keep everybody wanting more. The fun trip through time where nothing is off limits. When you have a show with comic geniuses producing like Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, you know it’s going to be funny. Combine that with the show creators, Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, who are best known for “Sausage Party”, and you get something that is unlike anything we have seen on TV.

Congrats on your recurring role on OWN series ‘The Haves and the Have Nots’! What can you tell us about your character in the upcoming season?

Next season on Tyler Perry’s show, I play a security guard named Leo that gets caught in the middle of the Cryer family drama. My character gets brought in to keep Wyatt out of trouble and he doesn’t like me being in his business and will do anything to get rid of me.

As a Marine Corps veteran, how did you celebrate Veterans Day?

Every Veterans Day I get together with my military brothers and get a free lunch and take a trip down memory road with telling our “war stories”. I never fought in a war, so that’s mostly making fun of all the crazy stuff they made us do to teach us discipline.

You used to be in a band called ‘Disober’. How did you get started in acting?

I started in theatre in high school but was spread out between theatre, music, and sports. Through my early 20s, my major love was rock and roll. It wasn’t until my band broke up that I concentrated on acting full time.

Are you still making music? 

I do not currently play music in any organized form. But I jam with other musicians every chance I get and occasionally play bass on tracks for other musicians.

You are a passionate supporter of UNICEF and American Cancer Society. Why are those two organizations important to you?

I lost my mother to cancer when I was 20 and helped raise my teenage sisters, so I learned first hand what cancer can do. I also believe that every child deserves a chance no matter what their circumstances are. Not everybody is given the same opportunity that they deserve.

In addition to acting, Kevin is a fitness model and stuntman and enjoys being an outdoorsman by mountain climbing, canyoneering, hiking, and fishing. Kevin can also next be seen recurring in season 5 of the OWN series “The Haves and the Have Nots” as ‘Leo’. His additional acting credits include The CW’s “Supergirl”, Lifetime’s “My Crazy Ex” and “Palisades Justice”.
