Brian will play the role of a Tourist in Jackson Square in one of the very first scenes of the show.
We just loved Brian’s vibe and intensity at auditions. He’s a powerful actor with a great look.
About BRIAN PICOU
Brian Picou, born Brian Steven Picou on September 24, 1971, is the younger child of Lee Jr and Dianne Picou of New Orleans, Louisiana. His maternal grandparents are Antonio and Anna Bologna. His paternal grandparents are Lee Sr and Catherine Picou, also of New Orleans, Louisiana.
Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Brian attended The Saint Peter’s School and The Saint Paul’s School to earn his Roman Catholic education. There he lettered in varsity football, track and field, peer ministry and served as one of two senior campus ministers. After high school, he went to Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and earned his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in cardiac physiology. Although his best friends from high school went on to study acting in college and perform in New Orleans and off-Broadway in New York City, Brian never saw himself in the film industry.
However, while pursuing a career in health and fitness after LSU, appearing on local TV and talk radio to discuss wellness topics of the day became the fun lagniappe to the medical industry. Running marathons in Honolulu, Hawaii and Dublin, Ireland while raising donations for the Arthritis Foundation as well as appearing on the Discovery Health Network to help motivate others to reduce their cardiovascular risk became its own brand of theater.
He also went on to develop and build the $14 million-dollar (Enlightened Fitness and Wellness, Inc) facility on 40 acres of land in Biloxi, Mississippi shortly after Hurricane Katrina utterly destroyed the Gulf Coast. It was with the intention to enlighten the populations of Mississippi, who suffer more than anywhere else in the US, to overcome the psychological and financial toils of sedentary lifestyle, obesity, and heart disease.
Brian now lives with his wife and two children in his hometown of Covington, Louisiana. He has pursued acting in over two dozen films, television series, and commercials and hopes to be a part of the wonderful surge known as “Hollywood South” — that nickname of New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, has turned our somber hymned procession into a true second line dance.
