Luke Tennie stars as Willie, a hardened gangster, who underneath is an honest and thoughtful person. Willie was forced into the Academy for the Deadly Arts by his mother, leader of an LA gang, to become the thing he hates most.
Deadly Class will be Tennie’s first television gig. He has two feature films coming out, including Rob Reiner’s “Shock and Awe” opposite Woody Harrelson and James Marsden, and the lead role in the indie film “Vengeance” from director Dallas Jackson. Tennie is represented by Abrams Artists Agency and Primary Wave Entertainment.
