One of the contestants who has reached the Final Round is New York City actor Adam Nelson who admits he's avoided the dramatics of reality television since briefly appearing in two episodes of the first and second season ofDonald Trump’s The Apprentice.
However, a new cross-format show is in the works, and the New York City native is among 113 film industry semifinalists vying for just 23 spots on The Reel Deal, set for filming this July. He’s thrown his hat into the ring because this show is not your typical reality show. In the vein of American Idol or The Voice, the new competition includes celebrity-led teams of actors, composers, writers and directors shooting short films in four days.
Nelson used a dozen fake advertisments to stand out from the jam packed including graffiti, UFO's, talking pictures and general brandalism which can viewed by clicking on the pictures below. His credits include movie appearances in feature films A Tiger's Tale with Ann Margaret, Lesser Prophets with John Turturro, Dead Broke with Justin Theroux, Home Sweet Hoboken with Ben Gazzara, Shooting Vegetarians with Elodie Bouchez, and the indie classic Dogs: The Rise and Fall of an All-Girl Bookie Joint.
