About Kelly

Kelly arrived in LA in September, 1982 with his "car his clothes and his stereo". After winning the men's photography competition at the ITMSA convention in NYC he was quickly signed by Wilhelmina West. He ended up getting his SAG card doing a Gillette commercial directed by Joe Pytka. Kelly met Mr. Sanford Meisner in spring 1992 and was a Founding Member of the Sanford Meisner Center for the Arts in Spring, 1995. He starred in several dozen productions and wrote/directed several others (1995-2013). Kelly was cast by Oscar nominated writer/director Lynn Mamet as the lead "Bobby Fry" in her world premiere of "The Job". He was then cast by writer/director Larry Cohen to play Charles Lindbergh in his world premiere of "Fallen Eagle" (from a screenplay he co-developed with Oliver Stone). The Sanford Meisner Center for the Arts was his home up until its closing in February of 2013. He continues to be an advocate for the Meisner Technique via Twitter @MeisnerActor. Mr. Nelson most recently portrayed Boaz in the sit com pilot "Thank You Come Again", written/directed by Chelsea Steiner as well as a sweet cameo in David Collins's 2019 sit com pilot "To Die For". Kelly likes karaoke and a good scotch and is an advocate for the Ruskin Group Theatre, the Taylor School of Acting and the Sanford Meisner Center. Kelly is excited to be developing the limited series "The Floating Church" based on his gg grandfather's diaries life story. -"A pure talent, just cast him, he can do anything." - Lynn Mamet -"A leading man who can really act." - Larry Cohen -"You mad me cry. Bravo! Excellent" - Jay Bernstein -"A sensitive actor, you can't teach that." - Sanford Meisner -"A treat to watch, powerful and multi-layered, with strong, thoughtful choices. Bravo!" - Billy DaMota. Follow me on Twitter @MeisnerActor
