After appearing in a record seven features and shorts playing at SXSW in 2013, INDIEWIRE wrote the article “Jonny Mars is the Texas Film Star You Probably Never Heard Of.” That same year Nic Cage beat the crap out of him in David Gordon Green’s JOE.
Some of Jonny’s other recent acting credits include the Sundance premieres HELLION (the short) in 2012, PIT STOP, BLACK METAL, COMPUTER CHESS and A TEACHER in 2013, with DIG & HELLION (U.S. Dramatic Comp) in 2014 and an appearance in David Lowery’s A GHOST STORY in 2017.
His leading performance in GOOD NIGHT (SXSW 2013) led SMELLS LIKE SCREEN SPIRIT to say “Jonny Mars is nothing less than a force of nature,” and FILMMAKER MAGAZINE to write “[one] of the greatest dramatic performances in the history of Austin filmmaking.”
Later this year, look for Mars starring alongside BREAKING BAD’S Matt Jones in A BAD IDEA GONE WRONG and SONY PICTURES’ recently acquired COVER VERSIONS with Katie Cassidy later this year.
