COLBY MOUSSA (Frank)
Bio Coming Soon!
PHILIP CASALE (Dean) is an actor, singer, writer, makeup artist, and all around decent guy. He performs regularly with his sketch team Foolhardy Manor and as Warren Talbot, the werewolf bandleader of the late night talk show Welcome to Hell with Vincent Welles. Phil was recently seen as the male host of End Times Productions' Naked Holidays 2013. At the tender age of 2, Phil wanted to be a part of the Rat Pack. His parents showered him with their music, and it wasn't long before he began to speak in phrases and lines lifted from Frank, Dino, and Sammy's onstage rapport. Couple that with his love for all things undead, and you have a match made in... I want to say Heaven?
