Currently in theaters, Oerly finds himself chasing Jason Statham in director Taylor Hackford’s newest action-thriller, PARKER. The film brings to the big screen Donald E. Westlake's literary anti-hero and stars A-listers Jennifer Lopez, Nick Nolte and Michael Chiklas.
Oerly also makes a cameo appearance as the train yard bully in the eco-terrorist indie thriller, THE EAST. The film stars indie favorites Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard and is a Scott Free Production.
And, opening in the U.S. on February 1st, Oerly will delight action fans as he goes head to head in an all-out battle with Sung Kang (of “Fast and the Furious” franchise) in the action-thriller, BULLET TO THE HEAD, starring film veteran Sylvester Stallone.
Oerly isn’t shying away from being labeled the newest ‘bad boy’ in Hollywood, explaining “I don’t mind being called ‘bad’…especially if I get to keep working opposite such talented people. You can’t help but learn when surrounded by people of this stature, it’s awe-inspiring. As for being labeled, BAD, well, I am no stranger to that, I’ve always been a mischievous little devil / prankster and I guess it has translated into my work. I’m always the bad guy and I love it!
With several other film and TV projects coming up, Oerly is only getting started. Releasing later this year, he can be seen on the big screen opposite Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in THE TOMB; in Andrew Fleming’s BAREFOOT, starring Rachel Evan Wood and Scott Speedman; and as one of the right-hand brute’s to Samuel L. Jackson in Spike Lee’s, OLDBOY. On the small screen, Oerly is set to appear in the Si-fi thriller, WINGED TERROR, for the SyFy Network.
Last year, Oerly gained attention for lending his support to several Hollywood heavyweights; as the Arian henchman flanking Vincent D’Onofrio and Bruce Willis in the action-thriller FIRE WITH FIRE, and alongside Forest Whittaker in the Lionsgate release, FREELANCERS. His previous television credits include “Memphis Beat,” “CSI: NY,” “Chuck,” “Charmed,” and the infamous locker room scene opposite Ed O’Neill in “Modern Family.” This small town Alta Loma, California native first began his career as a stuntman, and still admits he loves and belongs to this elite family of fantastic folks, but is excited to have quickly made the jump to principal actor in such amazing projects.
