Jim Krut with Jenna St. John in a clip from the film "Zombthology"
In addition to "Dawn of the Dead," I have acted in more than a dozen independent films, created and voiced hundreds of radio spots, appeared in hundreds of stage performances and acted on television. Additional films in which I appear, and may be released this year include "A Host of Sparrows," "Darkness Waits," "Bottom Creek" and maybe even "Night of the Living Dead: Genesis."
As an actor guest from 1978's "Dawn of the Dead," I have made film/horror/comic convention appearances throughout the United States, as well as multiple times in the U.K. and Germany.
I typically do half a dozen convention appearances each year.
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. The photos and exclusive Helicopter Zombie wearables available through this site are sold only by me at conventions or online, and by reputable convention organizers, to assure high quality and authenticity.
I have worked as a newspaper and magazine editor, VP of communications, newspaper reporter, actor, photographer, freelance writer, condo painter, model, cook, videographer, pizza deliverer, medical consultant, grocery clerk and audio-visual trainer. I have won national awards for writing and photography and co-authored the 2015 history book "The Fight for Power."
My acting career has included the Pittsburgh Laboratory Theatre, The IronClad Agreement (Pittsburgh), Carriage House Theatre (Huntingdon, Pa.), Blue Ridge Theatre Guild and Gettysburg Stage, as well as television and radio work. I have appeared on the Lifetime Network, Netflix's "House of Cards" and a PBS Bill Moyers series.
A combat veteran of the Vietnam War, I enlisted as a medic and was later assigned as personnel specialist with a 155-mm self-propelled howitzer unit. One tour overseas was enough, thank you. As a result, I have a deeper understanding of the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform and respect them tremendously - and I sometimes have a hard time hearing.
