PITTSBURGH, Pa. (KNNP) – Local comedian and stand-in actor, Nathaniel ‘Nate’ Johnson, has reportedly caused a large scene on the Amazon Studios’ film set, ‘I’m Your Woman’, when the movie was being filmed in Pittsburgh for the past several months.
Several sources tell KNNP-TV that Johnson reportedly took numerous photos of actors and actresses, who are members of SAG-AFTRA, and allegedly posted them on various social media websites to boost his own ranking within the film community.
The Pittsburgh film industry did not take kindly to the posts, including Nancy Mosser Casting of Pittsburgh. Reportedly, Katie Shenot of Mosser Casting, had told Johnson to remove various posts during the filming of ‘I’m Your Woman’. Amazon Studios was made aware of the leaked photos immediately, and took prompt action.
It is unclear whether Johnson was removed from the film set or whether any repercussion had followed. According to IMDb, an Amazon company, Johnson was removed entirely from the credits of ‘I’m Your Woman’, which previously listed him as a credited stand-in.
On Christmas Eve of 2019, Johnson made a Facebook post on his public page which called out SAG-AFTRA actor, Jason Gerrard, who starred in Cody Knott’s, Kecksburg’.
Johnson appeared to call Gerrard an “asshat” by utilizing the tag “#asshat”.
Various actors and actresses from Pittsburgh, New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles had assked Johnson to remove the unprofessional post, but Johnson claimed he would not. Earlier on Christmas Eve, Johnson took a hit to the entire Pittsburgh filmmakers community by commenting ” Who the hell buys CD’s anymore lol. Also I am a big deal in Pittsburgh. Keep your negative energy. I’m the elephant in the room and I will not think of myself any other way. Tag those friends of ours so i can delete their ass. Lol”
Johnson had reportedly threatened to assault Gerrard by “putting him in a headlock” if Gerrard was seen around Pittsburgh.
Kim Pugh, an actress in ‘Litchfield’, appeared in the photo Johnson had posted. She had demanded the photo be removed due to the drama Johnson had started.
Johnson has also reportedly been using Calvin Klein model photos and promoting himself as an official Calvin Klein model, which he is not.
Currently, Nathaniel Johnson has been listed as a stand-in on the TV-series, ‘One Dollar’, in addition to ‘Mindhunter’. He has appeared in ‘Escape at Dannemora’, ‘Mindhunter’, and ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’. Johnson is slated to appear as a Sheriff’s Deputy in ‘Little Mouse’. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9700645/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cr265
