Paul J. Alessi - Actor | Producer

I am an actor, producer.
My latest film that produced Born a Champion (aka Mickey Kelley) has been released to theaters by Lionsgate/Grindstone on January 22, 202, and recently released to Blu-Ray, VOD, and Streaming. I am sure everyone in here knows how long it can take to get a film funded and completed.

My long-time friend Sean Patrick Flanery shared his story with me about Mickey Kelley back in 2010, about one of the first American black belts in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and his love for the sport, BJJ, and his family.

Sean and I worked hand and hand to get in make and to keep Sean's vision and authenticity to the story, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

The film stars actors Sean Patrick Flanery, Dennis Quaid, Katrina Bowden and has MMA stars Edson Barboza, Mickey Gall, and Renzo Gracie, who grace the screen with their appearances.

All the best,
