Special episode with Trevor Jones veteran Actor, Stunt Coordinator/Stunt double & SuperGrizz Mascot
This was a fun podcast episode with a guy living a fun fulfilled life. Trevor Jones was an athlete and it led to a friend suggesting he go to an audition for an NBA team. Trevor was perfect for the role they were looking to fill and he got the part and doors have been opening ever since. Clever Trevor became Trevor "Grizz" Jones the Vancouver Grizzlies mascot and he unleashed his immense athleticism and basketball skill on the world! He spent years as part of the incredible entertainment package the NBA delivers and was a highlight nightly on a huge stage! He also represented the NBA in the first ever NBA regular season game outside North America in Tokyo, Japan. Another highlight was winning the mascot dunk competition at the All Star game in Cleveland, Ohio and being at the spectacle that is All Star weekend!
His NBA exposure led to opportunities in the film industry and he nailed the auditions again and a new career was spawned. He started as a stunt double in Police Academy the TV series and soon after became the lead actor in a kids movie called Big and Hairy. It is great to hear about how one door closed and another door opened to a life long career that has provided him a great life and taken him around the world.
Trevor is still a great athlete and has a deep love for many sports and we got into a great conversation about many different teams he loves and supports. We discussed the Olympics and the the way it was embraced here. We were both watching the Canadian national soccer team at the World Cup and we talked about the fun it was to watch and support them. The conversation flowed into the Vancouver Canucks playoff run in 2011 and how the local people again embraced the team and got behind them with huge support. Also his Philadelphia Eagles have the best record in the NFL currently and it brings up the high point for their fans winning the Super Bowl in 2018 was also fun to reminisce about with a true fan!
We could have talked sports for days and we probably will going forward!
This podcast was a gem and so is Trevor we are certain you will appreciate the time he gave us to shed some light into his life.
