Todd Johnson was born in mid-state New York in a small town called Niskayuna. With his dual personality, he ran to Colorado and studied Theater and Physics. After finishing his undergraduate work, he stayed in Colorado working various stage shows concentrating primarily on Shakespearean plays.
Todd moved back to New York and entered the professional entertainment world as an announcer and voice over artist for MSG Productions-the people who run Madison Square Gardens. He announced the last concert for Frank Zappa and was ‘the voice’ for the Tri-State BMW-Lexus dealerships. He also played on stage in many off-Broadway plays and one on-Broadway play called ‘Chorus Line’ just before it closed.
Moving to Los Angeles in the mid 1990’s, Todd entered the television world on shows such as ‘Ally McBeal’ and ‘The Practice’. He had his initial (and very small) break into feature films with ‘13 Days’ starring Kevin Costner. This was followed by another (small) film break in the film ‘Moonlight Mile’ with Dustin Hoffman. His first real film was a major supporting role in ‘Living the Dream’ starring Sean Young and this was quickly followed by a starring role ‘Behaving Badly’ starring Sylvia Suvadova.
Todd works as a Producer with 3 major productions under his belt. He is also a writer having written or co-written 4 major motion picture screenplays, over a dozen shorts, and is currently in work with two more features.
