Paul Cram

Movie directors love to kill Paul Cram. His scrappy characters have died in just about every way imaginable as they’ve tried to make their way through to the end of the movies that macabre writers have penned them into. You can find out a bit about Paul’s films on his site PaulCramActor.com. When not on a movie set or recording booth, Paul can be found deep-frying chicken wings & cream cheese wontons with his older sister, or arguing about pop culture with his little brother around one of the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota.
