Frank Grillo is a gifted actor who has brought his brand of naturalism and depth of character to an incredible body of work that spans decades. He portrayed the fan-favorite villain “Crossbones” in Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” (which joins the ranks as one of the few films to ever hit $1 billion at the box office) and is the face of Universal’s “Purge” franchise as Sergeant Leo Barnes in “The Purge: Anarchy” and “The Purge: Election Year.”

Frank also starred in China’s “Wolf Warrior II” which broke numerous global box office records. Other highlights include “Warrior,” “The Grey,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Donnybrook,” “Billions,” “Black and Blue,” “Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,” “Body Brokers,” Marvel’s “What If…?” and “Ida Red.” He brought his trademark intensity to the lead role in the beloved DirecTV series “Kingdom” for three seasons where he brought his real-life boxing and martial arts expertise to his renowned performance. 2016 saw the launch of WarParty, a production company that Grillo launched with director Joe Carnahan focused on elevated genre features that are disappearing amid the widening gap between blockbusters and independent film. Since inception the shingle has released a slew of lauded projects including the high-concept action thriller “Wheelman,” starring Grillo for Netflix, “El Chicano” which Grillo executive produced alongside Lorenzo di Bonaventura, the Netflix documentary series “FightWorld,” an inside look at fight culture all over the globe that Grillo produced and starred in, “Point Blank,” a Netflix action thriller featuring Grillo and Anthony Mackie and “Into The Ashes,” which Grillo produced and starred in alongside Robert Taylor and James Badge Dale for RLJE Films. Last year saw continued success for WarParty with two high-profile releases: “Boss Level,” an action sci-fi thriller starring Frank, Mel Gibson and Naomi Watts for Hulu and “Copshop,” a gleeful over the top action thrill ride starring Grillo and Gerard Butler for Open Road Films, both with Carnahan at the helm directing. Frank was most recently seen in the Lionsgate film “Paradise Highway” alongside Morgan Freeman and Juliette Binoche and is set to appear in the horror thriller “Man’s Son,” the directorial debut by Frank’s son, Remy Grillo. He will next star in the Ambi Pictures biopic “Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend” (playing founder Feruccio Lamborghini), set for release on November 18, 2022.
