Mr. Jackson plays the intimidating police detective in Coldplay the Movie. This film was intriguing to Jackson as it kept him guessing till the very end the first time he read it.
Playing a Detective who is investigating the robbery of a priceless egg in combination with the alleged murder of the egg owners wife Jackson has a pretty cut and dry case in front of him as far as the murder goes, but the robbery of the egg and who committed the crimes leaves him and his detective partner looking at the husband/egg owner and the newest lover of the murder victim who also happens to be a private investigator hired by the other suspect, the extremely jealous husband who wants to protect his priceless egg and beautiful wife from being stolen away by anyone else. By the end of the movie both suspects have lost both the egg and the woman.
Little do the suspects or the detectives know they have all been fooled by the leading lady who leaves the life she hates to start over with a new identity. Although Jackson’s police character is informed about the fake identity obtained by the leading lady, the amount of her blood found in the wealthy couple’s bathroom cabinet
leads everyone to believe she is dead and body is missing. He plays a very intelligent detective, but fails to investigate the new identity of the woman because of the assumption of death. This is how the very chilling Coldplay is accomplished with the police knowledge of how much blood someone cannot walk away from unhurt, unless of course she had been saving her blood for weeks to make her epic escape.
Along with Coldplay the Movie J.D. has been in Diary of a City Priest in 2001, and Lucky Number Slevin in 2006.
While the film list is short for J.D. Jackson he is much more versed in audio narration. He does his jobs as a voiceover actor for commercials, podcasts, IVR, Movies, Audiobooks, phone systems, documentaries, oh-hold messages, videogames, videogame trailers, and voicemails.
His voice over business is based out of Burbank California as Mr. Jackson lives in the Los Angeles area. In this day of age of technology, he is able to work in his area and send out his work to anyone anywhere via email, and can receive payment through PayPal. If you are in the market for such services look him up! We think he does great work!
Mr. Rota plays the huntsman coming after the private investigator in Coldplay the Movie. He is not seen or hear from much in this film but his presence is very good at showing the importance of how badly our P.I. needs the money from the selling of the egg to get himself out of some sort of prison gang related trouble.
Carlo’s character shows up and expresses the urgency of payment needed. Then later on when our private eye and leading lady are trying to purchase fake passports to leave the country he is standing outside the business where they need to go to complete this task on their getaway plan to do list. The fear he instills is very convincing and leaves no doubt in our minds that the P.I. is going along with the plan to get pay off and get away from his haunting past.
Carlo Rota was born in London England, but is in fact an Italian/Canadian actor. The Canada viewing audience knows him best for his character on ‘little Mosque on the Prairie’. He is also known internationally for his part on the FOX networks show ‘24’.
Although being born in England Rota’s parents were Italian, hence the heritage mentioned before. His family consist of his mother and father along with their four children, Rota being one of two boys and two girls. Rota was raised in a food industry household with his father being a chef known around the world, and his mother also working in the food industry. Carlo followed in his parent’s footsteps until the age of thirty where he switched gears and dedicated his life to acting.
Very soon after deciding to be an actor Rota was able to be cast in some very well-known Canadian shows. This career luck instantly made a name for him in the acting world and propelled him to many great roles.
If you would like more info on this very talented late blooming actor there is a book by Christopher Heyn titled Inside Section One: Creating and Producing TV’s La Femme Nikita.

Mr. Lee plays half of the detective duo investigating the ‘murder’ and robbery of the leading lady and prized egg in Coldplay the movie.
While the detectives do not have a ton of screen time they are still very key characters to show who is being looked at for the crimes and to show how the real crimes were committed without being traced.
Nelson was born October 16th in 1975 in Taiwan, but is a Canadian actor. He has played the sidekick to Blade in the one season of ‘Blade: The Series’ as the character Shen. He also stared as Li Chen in 2002’s ‘OZ’.
He also has appeared in several episodes of ‘Law and Order: SVU’ starting in 2001 as Johnny Chen, and ‘Law and Order’ in 2003 as Roy Leung.
In 2004 he played Xiu-Juan Chang in Strip Search, then returned to the Law and Order team in ‘Law and Order: Criminal Intent’ as Kevin Lee in 2005. He also had the part of the groom in the 2009 film ‘Vacancy 2: The First Cut’.
Lee is a collage graduate in the field of American Academy of Dramatic Arts from the University of Toronto. This shows his dedication to his craft and love for knowledge.
Playing half of the detective duo team in Coldplay the Movie, Nelson plays a strong cop who sees the situation for what it is. So much blood spilled at the crime scene belonging to the missing victim that there is no way she could survive the event. So along with his partner played by J.D. Jackson they investigate the two most likely suspects. The victim’s husband, and short term lover. Little did they know that the man she was really in love with had almost no contact with her at all and when he did he was portraying himself as a homosexual man. Nelson Lee played the intelligent detective to a perfect tee in Coldplay the Movie.
The leading lady in Coldplay is Vanessa Branch, comes only second to the beautiful Russian egg that everyone is in hot pursuit of.
It is actually kind of sad to see Vanessa’s character get tossed around from man to man with all the men really only carrying about the egg.
Let’s learn a little more about our girl Vanessa Lynn Branch.
She was born in 1973 in London, England but has dual citizenship with her birth country and the United States.
Quickly after graduating college she launched her acting/modeling occupation by being Miss Vermont in 1994 and then following that up with Miss America the following year.
Besides being in Coldplay the Movie she has done a fair share of television appetences including Lost, Gilmore Girls, Andy Barker, P.I., Star Trek: Voyager and the soap opera Port Charles.
Between the years of 2006 and 2010 she was featured in a big name magazine and did the voice overs for at least video game characters.
To say she is accomplished is an understatement. Being able to speak multiple languages, have a college education and have such a wide variety of acting and modeling on her resume, it is easy to say she is good at what she does. Not to mention the elite standing of being Miss America. Just think about how few women in the United States can say that! Very few.
Her role in Coldplay the Movie is the most surprising and well played rolls of the whole movie. She does a very good job of keeping you guessing what she is really up to, and not till the almost double twist at the end do you discover what she was up to! Well played Vanessa, well played!
Remember this face, surely we have not seen the last of her in the media world!
Our mysterious ex-convict in Coldplay the Movie did a wonderful job of portraying mystery but still being somewhat transparent with his emotions.
He plays the private investigator who is hired by our jealous millionaire to tail his suspected cheating wife.
At first it appears that this Irish tattooed convict might actually be falling for the wife, but in one short scene that is all thrown away when it is revealed he really only wants the egg and its fortune.
On top of doing an outstanding job of acting in this movie Geno Andrews also was the writer of Coldplay, an editor, director and the producer of this film. Quite an accomplishment for an award winning film.
There are several aspects of this movie that he conveys that will need further investigation as to if they have any special meaning to him personally. Such as the dog tags of his grandfather from World War One. The other thing that was attention catching was his last line in the movie “this won’t bring her back”. I am intrigued to know if this has any connection to him. Or maybe it was just a very well written line by him that sends chills right to the soul.
Andrews is well known for his project The Journeyman Project. This is a video game that he played a huge part in. He acted in it, composed it, and did the visual effects for it. Along with The Journeyman Project there was other video games that followed The journeyman Project2: Buried in Time, and The Journeyman Project: Pegasus Prime. With these following video games he had at least some part to play in each of them.
We often hear about great actors being great producers, writers, editors, and directors; But it is very rare to find an actor who is also so great at video game aspects too, such as being a visual effect artist, being a composer for video games, and audio effects. This is quite the accomplishment that he should be proud of and anyone who is fortunate enough to work with him will surely know his greatness from working with him.
The jealous husband in Coldplay was D. David Morin. Coldplay the Movie was actually his first movie. Although he was not unfamiliar with the acting. His mother was and actor as well as his aunt.
Before he acted Morin graduated from college in Colorado, then by selling skateboard parts, he put himself through law school. He even interned at the White House.
Morin must be a very carrying man. He has done famine work in West Africa.
He definitely has a fun side though as he claimed surfing was his profession for ten years and worked with a group of surfing publishers as Editor of Action.
He has been in over two hundred commercials, over thirty television spots, and has acted opposite of several very well noted actors and actresses.
After Coldplay his next film he directed and edited. This film won over 5 awards!
After these two movies, his film focus turned to the documentary side as he worked in several third world countries doing wildlife films. He even acted in an Amharic film.
He relocated from California to Cape Town, South Africa where he has founded an acting class in Cape Town.
Morin never married and is reported to love teaching others, and of course, he loves swimming!
It is no wonder he acted so well with his leading lady in Coldplay the Movie. Both of these amazing actors are highly educated and have a heart for educating others. Teaching what they know to be important makes them stand out among the others who simply do what they can to get paid and make a name for themselves. Morin seems to be a content man who does what he can to better the world by sharing his knowledge.
His amazing acting skills in Coldplay shined while he played the jealous husband and millionaire who wanted the treasures of people as well as belongings to be only his and no one else’s.
When the movie first began it was hard to tell who was the main character. However, during the interrogation scene of the two suspected men, it became slightly clearer that the main character was not a person at all. It was in fact a nearly priceless Fabergé egg.
They reference this egg with pretty close to the truth facts about its history. It was fashioned by Russian jewel artists, Mikhail Perkhim and Henrik Wigstrom, under the supervision of their mentor Peter Carl Faberge.
The Imperial egg was commissioned by Tsar Nicholas II as an Easter gift for Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna, The Tsar’s wife.
The movie dates the egg as being a gift in 1914 but in fact it was first gifted in 1897. Coldplay did however get the Tsar and Empress right as the original giver and receiver of this amazing egg.
Made of an astounding number of diamonds and gold this egg would really be a wonder to lay eyes on! The egg hinges to reveal yet another treasure of great Russian history. Inside the diamond incrusted egg is an exact replica of the imperial coach from the eighteenth century. This couch carried Alexandra to all the important events in her life starting with her own coronation. No wonder it is such a prized piece of Russian history. This egg must have held a very special place in Alexandra’s heart. The movie Coldplay did not go into any detail at all as to what was in the egg. This would of made the value of what they paid for the egg seem much more realistic if they had dove into the history a little more.
This egg of course has an amazing story all its own. Being a world traveler, and almost lost several times at the hands of war and greed. We are fortunate to still have it to this day to teach us of its history and how civilization was in Russia so very long ago.
The egg was also a key part to other movies too, such as Ocean’s Twelve (2004) and Octopussy (1983). Both of these famous action filled films depict the Egg as having great value just as Coldplay did.
The security set into place for the egg in Coldplay was very in-depth. With constant laser beams circling the egg and a private security company hired to protect it. Assuming they did this move to imply that a private security company would respond faster than the local police department and to give the viewer a higher sense of value to this egg.
When the movie boils down to its core it is a jealous man who wants something expensive that another man, a foe if you will, wants also. The husband being the jealous man also feels the need to compete with his man over his own wife. He buys the egg for twenty million dollars just to spite the man that his wife was looking at.
