Bill Oberst Jr., a long time horror actor (and longtime FM fan!), who’s insanely busy (seriously check his IMDB) and with a varied resume that includes THE DEVIL WITHIN, NUDE NUNS WITH BIG GUNS and ABRAHAM LINCOLN VS. ZOMBIES, has joined Danny Trejo, Sid Haig and Jake Busy to the AEF Talent Agency. One thing you can expect: a lot more horror work. Read on for the press release.
Los Angeles, CA – Actor Bill Oberst Jr. has been signed by Amsel, Eisenstadt & Frazier Talent Agency for theatrical and commercial representation. Oberst (Take This Lollipop, Abraham Lincoln Vs.Zombies) joins Danny Trejo (Grindhouse, Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn,) Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 2) and Jake Busey (Starship Troopers, Identity, Enemy Of The State) on the roster of AEF partner Gloria Hinojosa.
The agency’s roster also boasts Dee Wallace (E.T., Cujo, The Howling) and Verne Troyer (Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone, Austin Powers:The Spy Who Shagged Me, Goldmember.) The actor says he is grateful and honored to be joining AEF and especially excited about being on the same talent roster as Trejo. “To me Danny Trejo is the perfect combination; a total badass on the screen and a total gentleman off of it” says Oberst. “I admire him and I’m a huge fan, so to be sharing the same talent agent with Mr. Trejo is a very big deal for me.”
Oberst, whose performance in Jason Zada’s Emmy Award-winning Take This Lollipop has been seen by over 100 million Facebook users worldwide, is also represented by manager Matt Chassin, whose roster includes genre stars Lynn Lowry (The Crazies, Cat People,) Camden Toy (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and terror team Jimmyo Burril and April Monique Burril (The Chainsaw Sally Show.)

The actor’s next expected wide release is Jourdan McClure’s Children Of Sorrow, in which Oberst plays cult leader Simon Leach.
