Orson Chaplin has some pretty big shoes to fill…and we’re not talking about Grandpa Charlie’s oversized Oxfords. Chaplin is not only the grandson of film legend Charlie Chaplin, but is also the son of film producer Ilya Salkind (Superman). Don’t let the heavy hitters in his family fool you though, this young actor set out on his own to make it as an actor and has become a recognized name on the indie film and horror movie scene.
Chaplin currently co-stars in the new Rom-Com Stan the Man, dropping on VOD Tuesday, February 4, 2020 that stars Steven Chase as Stan Mann, a multi-millionaire living the high life of wine, women, song and gambling. That last one gets Stan in trouble with the Russian mafia and things start unraveling for Stan the Man.
We spoke with Chaplin about his young career, living up to the legacy of two powerhouses in his family and how he cut his teeth for free working on student films to get a reel together, where an industry that your name only gets you so far and talent needs to take over.
Below is a trailer for Stan the Man out on VOD, Tuesday, February 4, 2020 and follow Orson Chaplin on Instagram @orsonchaplinofficial
