Thanks Jeremiah Stewart for setting up this interview with Bryan Cartago and me. We talk about working on Mortal Kombat Legacy season 2, the game franchise, and the fans.
Our distributor Indican has definitely come through on my first feature film Contour, first changing the name to The Agent to get better international sales (with success), and now getting the film on the Playstation Store, among many other VOD platforms. If you wanna check out how The Agent compares with my original Contour cut, check it out on PSN!
I was recently hosted on the New Media Rockstars website where I talked about Mortal Kombat Legacy and all stuff Stunt People related. The article is here: http://newmediarockstars.com/2013/03/stunt-peoples-eric-jacobus-talks-darth-gopro-lightsabers-his-mortal-kombat-legacy-role-interview/

On Tuesday I’ll be interviewed on the On Blast Show, taking questions live about anything from my role in Mortal Kombat Legacy to my short stint on the latest A Good Day to Die Hard as well as anything related to Death Grip, Contour, The Stunt People, and whatever else you all can think of. Here’s the info:
Media Mikes’ has just posted my interview on their site where I talk about my role in Mortal Kombat Legacy Season 2 as Stryker. There are a few other tidbits in there too, including my announcement of our next project Marine Core. We’ll be making an official announcement in the coming weeks.

Short on change and don’t feel like buying Death Grip? No problem! Check out Kung Fu Magazine’s latest sweepstakes - a DVD of Death Grip signed by me and co-star and producer Rebecca Ahn. I’ll even add an incentive: if you’re a reader on this blog and you win one of the DVDs they’re giving away, I’ll send you an additional autographed page which has our signatures plus those of the other main cast including Johnny Yong Bosch. Winners can just email me and I’ll send it off after I double check with KFM that you’re actually a winner and not just trying to get free schwag. So make sure you enter to win!
Speical thanks to Gene Ching and Tiger Claw for the promotion.
Fugu Talk saw our preview at Comic-Con 2012:
There was one Donny Yuen film, some awful stuff that ranged from fun to unwatchable, and a really impressive indie effort from The Stunt People that reminded me of the old Jackie Chan films, both in terms of action and physical humor. I liked the clips so much that I searched out their booth on the exhibit floor (turns out they were adjacent to Troma) to buy the DVD, which has a lot of interesting and inspiring special feature bits on the history of The Stunt People and the development of Death Grip (the star/writer spent six years on the script!)
Martial Arts Movie Junkie Kelly Miller:
The fights are fast and intense. I absolutely loved some of the longer takes and little stunts that were sprinkled in. What make the fights truly shine, though, are the situations that are created. Each fight has its own personality and feel, and it’s apparent that a lot of thought went into these. One of my favorite fights is one that takes the term “toilet humor” to a whole new level. If you like fights, you won’t be disappointed.
UMUSTBEBORED – DEATH GRIP: A must watch for kung-fu movie lovers!
The fights are phenomenal. Eric Jacobus not only stars but also directs DEATH GRIP. He and his Stunt People crew understand how to perfectly shoot and execute a fighting scene. These guys have it down to a science. There are no wires or fast edits mixed with excessive shaky cam. We see everything in sometimes long continuous takes. The fights are fast and they leave a lasting impact. You can tell what is happening. … They are way better than the fights you would see in a Bourne film or any other big budgeted mainstream film.
Sound good? Buy the DVD or Blu-Ray (both are all-region!) today. Domestic orders ship almost daily, and international orders (we ship everywhere) ship twice a week. All funds go straight back to us to pay for making the film. This way, we can get started on our next projects that are currently underway.
