SHARON RYLANDER (MEG RYAN)
was part of the original SF PBL! cast for its entire 2+ year sold out run. She wrapped the show feeling deeply relieved that no one died from the complex action plot or sued her for not being the real Oscar-winning director. Curiously, her addiction to the PBL! love remains stronger than either of these fears. In the interim, her favorite stage projects included Breakfast Fight Club (yes, it was that good), Twilight Zone Festival (most notably as Rod Serling kissing bald heads in the audience), plus multiple years in the SF Improv Fest. Her current troupe, RadioStar Improv, has >200 audio episodes on iTunes. TV/Film credits include a bunch of stuff you've probably never heard of but that she's proud of anyway. And you can catch her latest project, a new dramatic web series pilot, here: HUSH The Series.

EVAN FERRANTE (NOT TOM CRUISE)
Known throughout the world as the leading Tom Cruise impersonator, Evan Ferrante has traveled the globe impersonating Cruise (London, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada) and has appeared in a host of commercials, films, and corporate events as the iconic movie star, working with Disney, FX, Maker Studios, DirectTV, Channel 4 Television and many other companies seeking to harness the unparalleled energy of Cruise. Evan recently made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, performing the famous courtroom drama scene from A Few Good Men. Ferrante received the biggest praise of all on EXTRA from Tom Cruise himself, who said “His voice is uncanny,” while laughing maniacally. Evan first discovered he had the unique ability to impersonate Cruise back when his college roommate, Alex, at Boston University, pointed out the eery similarities, notably the voice and mannerisms. He strongly encouraged Evan to capitalize on this newfound talent. Jerry Maguire had just been released that same year, so there was a lot of new material to work with. Evan and Alex, who did an impressive Jean Claude Van Damme impersonation, knocked on female dorm rooms and performed their routine, hoping to gain entry. It worked 70% of the time and the rest is history. Evan would very much like to thank Tom Cruise for opening up his life to new, exciting, and surreal possibilities.
