Found: Watch Matt McGorry, Who Plays Bennett On “Orange Is The New Black,” Play A He-Man Beefcake In A Student Film

Every actor gets their start somewhere. For Matt McGorry, who plays lovebird correctional officer John Bennett on “Orange Is The New Black,” his start was as an axe-wielding He-Man hero in a hilarious student film.

While at Emerson College, McGorry donned a Fabio wig to appear as Gorm in a six-minute-short called “Gizor And Gorm.” It’s got “fertility maidens” fucking a ginger dude tied to a rock. It’s got lots of fake blood. And most importantly, it’s got Matt McGorry running around in the woods without his shirt off.

Check out that wig!


There he is!  “Gizor and Gorm” is described on IMDB thusly:

The chaos of war has reigned with the realm since the fall of the Thangbrand Kingdom. For an entire millennia, the people of Vulgard have not known the meaning of peace… In the darkness of night, the balance of war has been upset. Prince Argo of the Arturian line has been abducted by the daughters of Kypela. They must be stopped at all costs… Gizor and Gorm, sons of the Thangbrand Kingdom, must step in and save the day.

Interestingly, Matt’s co-star (“Gizor”) is Hartley Sawyer, who has appeared on “The Young And The Restless,” “Subpurgatory” and “Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23.” Whoever did this casting for this student film sure knew how to pick ‘em.
