YouTube Personality Scores Supporting Film Role

To many people Brandon Hardesty is nothing more then a kid living in his parents basement reenacting scenes from Dogma, The Shawshank Redemption, Clerks or his spot on match of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket, just to name a few.

Hardesty announced Sunday on this YouTube account ArtieTSMITW (Artie the Strongest Man in the World) that he will have a supporting roll in the independent film Bart Got a Room staring William H Macy, A check of IMDB.com confirms this.

Hardesty is the first to get a supporting film role as a result of his YouTube exposure. Earlier this year Lisa Donavon a.k.a. LisaNova announced she had been hired by Mad TV. It is clear the YouTube has become a launching platform for unknown people. Will the next Jack Nicholson please stand up?
