Actor Matt Shevin has been spending his time in quarantine recreating iconic movie scenes with his 96-lb., eight-year-old pit bull named Ricky.
With credits under his belt including the 2020 Lifetime TV movie Her Secret Family Killer and The Bold and the Beautiful, Shevin has shot 68 videos from films including The Hunger Games and The Hangover.
Shevin began the project in March with a scene from Casino. He calls this endeavor “Inside the Actor’s Quarantined Apartment,” and gives major credit to Ricky for the project’s success. “He’s proof that you actually can teach an old dog new tricks. I’ve got him wearing wardrobe and wigs, and he’s reacting on camera in ways that amaze me. I’ve become a Hollywood dad.”
The dog’s effort does not go uncompensated. “The second I yell ‘cut,’ Ricky heads right to the kitchen for a treat,” says Shevin. “He knows his worth.”
