Football Dreams to Film Industry Work With Alvin Cowan - Episode 32

In this episode, we talk to #AlvinCowan who went from playing football at #YaleUniversity hoping for a #ProFootball bid to becoming a working actor in the film industry in Hollywood.

Bio:

Alvin Cowan is a veteran actor, writer, and producer from Austin, Texas, who has worked with legends like Clint Eastwood, James Caan, Bradley Cooper, and Bruce Willis. 

Alvin has a passion for sports, and his football prowess led him to become a record-setting quarterback at Yale, where he was inducted onto the All-Era Team. He then briefly played professional football with both the NFL and AFL.

After his athletic career, he moved to LA, where he landed a breakout recurring role in ABC’s “Back In The Game” followed quickly by a supporting role in Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper.” He recently appeared on Season 2 of HBO’s critically-acclaimed series, “Westworld,” and had a recurring role in Seasons 3 and 5 of Emmy-nominated “This Is Us.” He will next be seen in the highly-anticipated indie, “International Falls,” alongside Rachael Harris and Rob Huebel and guest-starring in the final season of the AMC hit, “Better Call Saul.” 

Alvin is heavily involved behind-the-scenes, currently writing a feature film with producers Eric Tannenbaum and David Beaubaire and pitching a sports/war feature based on the #1 Amazon bestseller, The Cloudbuster Nine. He also is in development as a producer on the TV series “Disposable Heroes” with Basil Iwanyk/Thunder Road and the TV series “Next Season” with Monami Entertainment. 

During the pandemic, Alvin moved into the podcast space, writing and producing the #1 rated documentary podcast, “American Coyote: The Legend of Elden Kidd,” which reached #22 on the overall charts on Apple Podcasts. In this space, he is currently in production on another podcast series with Cavalry Media/Dana Brunetti and The Athletic.  
 
A lover of the outdoors, he splits his time between Los Angeles and Bend, Oregon with his wife, Laura, daughter, Stella, and their dog, Hank.
