A benefit for Moving Mountains’ theater, film, and arts programs for underserved inner-city youth, Battle With The Stars pits celebrities against average joes in a thrilling paintball event. Beginning at 7 p.m., attendees can meet and greet stars of feature films and TV shows, such as The Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire, The Wire, and The Sopranos, and then engage them in an outdoor paintball tournament that rages until midnight. Attendees can expect to meet Jamie Hector, Dominic Lombardozzi, and Michael Kenneth Williams, as well as—depending on their availability—performers such as J.D. Williams, Sonja Sohn, and Isaiah Whitlock.
Actor Jamie Hector has made a career playing bad guys: drug lord Marlo Stanfield on The Wire, criminal Benjamin “Knox” Washington in Heroes, and villain Lincoln DeNeuf in Max Payne. The real-life Jamie, however, has a much different agenda. As one of the three founders of Moving Mountains, he draws New York’s inner-city youth off the streets and into the theater in order to steer them away from negative influences, such as bullying, gangs, violence, and substance abuse. He and his team of industry mentors cultivate an ensemble of young performers, musicians, and writers who create original plays and short films that delve deep into their age group’s social issues while spreading strong positive messages. In Moving Mountains’ film studio, mentors train budding directors, photographers, and technicians to create and promote short films and promotional artwork with the aid of industry-standard equipment. The mentors and their most senior students also tackle social problems at the source by traveling to city schools to educate audiences on topics including bullying, sexting, and how to make good choices in education and personal relationships.
