Last night we held our full cast table read at Grace Chapel in Leiper’s Fork TN. This was our first chance to hear everyone together reading the script (minus the talented Elise Glasser, who was unable to attend, and was missed).
For me, it was great to hear all the voices come together on a project we’ve been working on for so long. After over two years of working on The Nothing, it was great to see life breathed into these characters that have been taking up residency in my head for so long. And I’m thrilled to say that the cast of incredible Nashville area actors we’ve amassed are already bringing things to these characters that surpass anything that was in my mind while Josh and I were writing.
We’re full steam ahead with rehearsals coming up, sets being designed, and video content being produced for this site. And with principle photography starting in early July, The Nothing is now something. So stay tuned to this site and our facebook page for all the latest updates, and all the awful “nothing” puns you can eat! But no plate sharing!
You can also check out all the stills from the table read right here.
We can now officially confirm that THE NOTHING will go into principal photography in early July.
The producers of The Nothing are thrilled to announce our cast.
We are blown away by the talent we have found and are proud to have a cast filled with some of Nashville’s most gifted and compelling actors.
The cast is led by Jeff Boyet as Ren, Jared Carter as Lane, Jeremy Childs as Bud, Jeff Durham as Clark, and Shawn Whitsell as Eli, five men who awake to find themselves trapped in an eerie and ramshackle barn. Total strangers to each other, and with no memory of how they got there, the mystery deepens when they open the barn doors to find everything they know gone and replaced by an endless expanse of nothingness.
The Nothing will also feature Allison Allen, Elise Glasser, Derek R. Stogner, and Jeff Lewis.

“Eternal nothingness is fine if you happen to be dressed for it.” – Woody Allen
“Everything starts somewhere.”- Ren in The Nothing
Many things about Ren are a mystery, even to himself, but one thing is clear; even before he awoke in The Nothing, he was already very lost. In the presence of the other men, and their uncompromising beliefs, he is forced to reconcile his own spiritual conflict.
