The World War II Foundation is pleased to announce that three very well-known names will be lending their voices and talents to the one-hour documentary chronicling the incredible World War II Pacific escape of Jefferson, Georgia native Damon “Rocky” Gause.
Kyle Chandler, Prime-Time Emmy Award-winning actor for his role in NBC’s Friday Night Lights as head coach Eric Taylor, will be narrating the documentary. Kyle is also a University of Georgia graduate, as was Damon Gause. Chandler, from Social Circle, Georgia has also starred in many other television shows and movies including: The Wolf of Wall Street, Zero Dark Thirty, Argo, Super 8 and the television series Early Edition.
Former Days of Our Lives multiple Daytime Emmy Award-winning actor Chandler Massey, an Atlanta, Georgia native, will be voicing the role of Damon “Rocky” Gause in the documentary. Massey received the 2012 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. He won his second and third consecutive Emmy awards in the category in 2013 and 2014. Massey has also appeared in the televisions series One Tree Hill and Army Wives. He also was seen in HBO’s Eastbound and Down.
Jefferson, Georgia native and another UGA grad, Country Music star Corey Smith, will be lending his voice to the documentary as “Rocky” Gause’s escape partner William Lloyd Osborne. Smith, one of country music’s emerging talents, will also be providing much of the music for the film.
