Brad Kepnick, The missing Kepnick

So as you may or may not know, my last name is Kepnick, and I have been trying to research my family history for a while, and one Kepnick kept on popping up, Brad Kepnick. The best part about this Kepnick is that he is a second rate actor who has been in the following tv shows and movies:

The Golden Girls : Mrs George Devereaux he played a Maitre’d
2 Episodes of “Hard Times on Planet Earth, both Bill Weber, and “young man”
Fright Night Part II – Hip young guy
Pass the Ammo: Rickey Marcell
Gaor Bait II: Cajun Justice – Luke.

I did my best surfing the web looking for pictures, just to see if he looks like any of the rest of the family. After a long and hard search, I decided I would have to buy one of the things he was in, since nothing could be found. My choices were Gator Bait VHS on Amazon for $50 or a place that sells pirated movies on DVD for $5. The choice was obvious, and my movie arrived a few days later, and I could not be happier.

Here are some choice shots from the movie:

Brad, If you every read this “your family” misses you and wants to know who the hell you are and wonders if/how we are related.

PS: get me a line or two in the movies.

It’s nice having a more rare last name. Mine is Maldre, it’s very handy being the only Matt Maldre in the entire world.

I very much prefer having a very forgettable, common name. I do not like being googled.

You know, I had to pay the rent and a bad Southern accent and a lack of talent seemed a small price to pay for a trip to New Orleans…

Unfortunately, Kepnick was how my name was pronounced my during my upbringing, but my name is actually spelled KOEPENICK.

When I was first signed to a contract, my manager at the time, a fairly influential producer insisted that I spell the name the way I pronounced it…

But if you google me at Brad Koepenick, you’ll see I wne ton to do mmore bad films, but did find my way in other endeavors.

Hilarious clip…I can’t believe it exists.

Hey Brad, it is pretty exciting that you stopped by. I am a little disappointed in the fact that we are not related, but it does remove the mystery that was once there.

Do you have anything coming out in the near future? It looks like you are staying pretty busy with some TV shows (scrubs and such) so congrats on that.

“Hollywood Horwitz” who are you? Hook me up with some small time speaking rolls in anything and you will be hero!

To you both, thanks for making this a memorable day on!

I have never tried, but I think for a line or two I could anything you need. I am pretty sweet looking dude:

That is what I look like 15lbs heavier and more drunk than I am now.

Most of my resume is chocked full of internet marketing jobs…zero acting (c:

Website consultant?

Check out XOW and…a company I’ve been working with…

Also, I’ve got one or two other endeavors that perhaps require internet marketing needs…

I wasn’t sure if you were legit…or just giving me the business about lackluster performance skills…

Yeah I have been doing internet marketing related stuff for the last 5 or so years. Run with a friend now, but we make most our $$$ from selling other peoples things (affiliate marketing).

Honestly I would love to be in a movie, just to say that I have done it… but as far as my critique of your work, obviously I find Gator Bait II to be pretty funny, but I did not catch you in the more recent shows.

The whole reason this started though was to find out if we were somehow related. We have a family of 6 people at this point, and as far as we could find (so far) it seems like the name was made up some where along the lines. The whole Kepnick family history is somewhat of a mystery… I was hoping Brad Kepnick was at least some weird puzzle piece.

If you ever make your way up to Chicago we will need to meet up.
