Matt McGorry

I love a movie that hits you like a wall and leaves you talking about it several days after. Rattle is such the picture. It deals with modern digital device reality. You'll be reaching for a wad of tape and covering that camera lens up quickly. From the iHeart Radio Studio I'm Unplugged and Totally Uncut with actor Matt McGorry. Matt McGorry stars as Asher Millstone in ABC’s hit new series How to Get Away with Murder produced by Shonda Rhimes and created by Peter Nowalk. He can also be seen playing the post-military newbie corrections officer John Bennett in the Emmy nominated Netflix original series Orange is the New Black. Other television appearances include TNT’s upcoming drama series Public Morals produced by Steven Spielberg and Edward Burns, the Emmy nominated crime drama Elementary, CW’s well-known series Gossip Girl, the USA original series Royal Pains, the CBS Emmy nominated crime drama Person of Interest, and Comedy Central’s Onion SportsDome. Matt McGorry’s background in comedy began during college when he was a member of the well-known sketch group, “Emerson Comedy Workshop”. After graduating in 2008, Matt went on to appear in videos and years of improv performance after graduating from the prestigious UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade) Improv Theatre Program. Matt previously spent time as a fitness expert and has been featured in Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Muscle & Fitness, Life & Style and NY1. McGorry was born and raised in New York City. He attended LaGuardia High School, the “Fame” school, as a drama major. Following LaGuardia H.S., he attended the Theater program at Emerson College in Boston, MA. ABOUT RATTER, on DVD & DIGITAL MARCH 1ST Ashley Benson (“Pretty Little Liars”) and Matt McGorry (“How to Get Away with Murder”) star in the voyeuristic thriller RATTER, debuting on DVD and Digital March 1 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Shown from the stalker’s point of the view, the film follows Emma (Benson), a graduate student who falls prey to a tech-savvy stalker who hacks into her digital world. The film harnesses the paranoia of today’s technology, serving as an uncomfortably relevant warning about a new breed of cyber stalking where at any moment someone could be watching your every move through the devices that keep us connected. An official selection at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival and the 2015 Slamdance Film Festival, as well as a nominee at the 2015 Film Independent Series Award, director Branden Kramer’s RATTER also stars Rebecca Naomi Jones (Lovesick). Bonus features include three deleted scenes. Synopsis: We’re constantly connected through our phones, laptops and the Web every moment of every day. But while we look at our screens, who’s looking at us? Meet Emma, a beautiful young grad student who has just moved from the Midwest to New York, excited to be on her own in the big city. But when a stalker hacks into her devices, he destroys Emma’s illusions of privacy and she discovers just how fragile our sense of security can be. Ashley Benson stars in the groundbreaking psychological thriller that explores a world where the cameras are always on and someone’s always watching. RATTER was written and directed by Branden Kramer. The film was executive produced by Stefan Haverkamp, Jan Jaworski, Tom Kropp, Matt Levin, Michael Maher, Evelynda Rivera and Sarah Shepard and produced by David Bausch, Ben Browning and Jamie Zelermyer. Bonus Features Include deleted scenes featuring Ashley Benson.
