Bronx, NY native Andrew Hillmedo Jr. p/k/a Dante Hillmedo is an American actor who’s appeared in a handful of movies, most notably 2008′s major motion picture Baby Mama starring Saturday Night Live alumni Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and is now trying his hand at a career in rap – with little success. Hillmedo will document his misadventures in an documentary called “This Is Dante”, which he is producing independently with German-American entertainment company Block Starz Music. “This Is Dante” will document the fledgling actor turned rapper’s ascent – or lack thereof – in the music industry in a series of funny webisodes to air at www.ThisIsDante.com beginning this fall. Hillmedo says the series will detail his career false starts, including an ill-fated collaboration with distant cousin Slick Rick, and missed opportunities, like a nervous audition that lost him a role in the Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious, with “self-deprecating humor”.
