In his first film, Tempted, directed by Bill Benett, Randy worked with one of his favorite film actors, Burt Reynolds. He feels blessed to have been able to meet and work with a lot to tremendously talented people, cast and crew.

He continues to try to grow as an actor and looks forward to, what he hopes to be, a busy future in film.
