After successfully producing his own projects with name actors such as Morgan Freeman, Michael Clarke Duncan, Vinnie Jones, Jerry Rice, Ed Begley Jr. and Kathryn Joosten among others, Andre decided to only audition for specific, non-stereotypical parts.
“I told my agents to stop sending me out for gangster roles,” he said.

In his last film, Wedding Day, he played the role of the groom as opposed to the role of the wisecracking best friend, so he is completely breaking the norm for character actors, which is truly inspiring.
He also created the Mentorship Program, which is
designed to help up and coming actors, directors and writers. Participants of this innovative, hands on program, have a direct link to several industry perks including  agents nights, casting director workshops, director and producer showcases, red carpet events, opportunities for roles in feature films, acting classes, pr and press advice and business mentorship. Proceeds of the Mentorship Program go toward the Childrens Hunger Fund.

Gordon and the cast of Jungle Bunch recently won the International Emmy Award for best Kids Animation Show and Gordon and John Lithgow are the leads in this project. He was born in Saint Andrew, Jamaica and grew up in Miami, Florida. This talented multi-hypenate is a alumni of the BFA program at Florida State University and is repped by UTA, CLEAR Talent Group and Flick Commercials. Gordon is President and C.E.O of 4Horsemen FIlms.

Andre has been successfully producing, acting, writing and directing for well over a decade. Andre has worked theatrically in both film and television, which includes guest appearances on MAD TV, Campus Ladies, Scrubs, Phineas and Ferb and Zoey 101 along with the features Old School, Like Mike, and SWAT.
