Movies, TV, stage and radio
In addition to "Dawn of the Dead," I have acted in several independent films, created and voiced hundreds of radio spots, appeared in dozens of stage performances and on television.
As an actor guest from 1978's "Dawn of the Dead," I have made film/horror/comic convention appearances throughout the United States, in the U.K. and Germany and enjoy meeting the fans.
As special guest, I have appeared at events such as zombie walks in Williamsburg, Va., and New Jersey, Zombies in the Park and Baltimore's Zombie Gras, King's Dominion amusement park and Haunted Hill in Spotsylvania, Va.
For thousands of fans of "Dawn of the Dead," this website and my Facebook page www.facebook.com/jimkrut are a way to keep in touch. There are also photos and exclusive Helicopter Zombie T-shirts and tanks available through this site. They are not sold in any stores, only by me at conventions or online, to assure high quality and authenticity.
During most appearances, I have a variety of photos and maybe Helicopter Zombie t-shirts available for sale. The photos include a personalized autograph for only $20! I'd give it to you for free, but we all have to eat, sometimes brains, sometimes no-brainers. If you are planning to attend one of these events, for example, and want a shirt in XL or Medium, email me in advance at email@example.com so I can bring it along! Thanks for being a fan!
