This guy "Ron" promised me so much when he lived in Tacoma Washington infact I was part of his little "TV show and I was a actress." Then one day he disappeared and moved back to Maryland. I helped him write some of the shows and he up and took my acting with him. CAn we trust him. He also has a fetus for teenage girls as he girlfriend. He cheated on me with a 17 year-old. I would watched out for him!!!

he is a complete creeper. and liar. and pedophile. aaaaand needs to be sent away, if you know what I mean.
he tried starting "Behind the Badge" here in Laurel, MD a few years back - he lied straight to everyone's faces, tried hooking up with every girl he crossed paths with (the younger the better was his motto), and basically kept bullshitting his way through everything. he is NOT to be trusted. stay far away.
I never knew he played his same game out in Washington.

I have no idea what made me look this up but back in high school I remember "auditioning" at a friends house and being promised for the part of Holly, but was denied later on because my chest was too flat too funny

has this guy ever been reported to the police? i know someone who is "working" for him right now and we're concerned. she's 17 by the way. everything we've read about this guy creeps us out. she's supposedly one of the daughters on "behind the badge" now.

He's a really bad liar, did you read that silly contract he wrote? I'd get out now, he gave me the creeps. There are better things your daughter could be doing. He called me and I actually caught him in a few of his many lies. There's a reason he never makes any of his wild claims in writing. I tried to get him to a few times (just in emails even), but he constantly sends the message "call me."

Wow, I didn't know all of this stuff! Thank God I finally checked this out. I auditioned for him and Dan Griffin(casting director) and Ron called me saying that I was very talented and he wanted me to play one of the cheerleaders, he said that we would start shooting in April and it is now the end of November, he still calls and says that we'll be doing a commercial soon.. calls me sweety, honey, and asks if I memorized the script.. i am 17.. has anyone heard of Dan Griffin being like Ron? or is he okay? so many creeps in this business!

I wish I had something nice to say about this guy. He is definitely a liar and a creep.

He kept pushing back the shooting dates for his movies and shadow of the badge. He also took us to an event that turned out to be nothing of what he said (Katy Perry being there and this huge production about his show).

He was also call non-stop using the same nicknames as mentioned above and he would always say how beautiful I was and get too close to me (my boyfriend can vouch for that). That was probably the most uncomfortable situations I've ever been in.

He was also make inappropriate comments about females in high school commenting on their bodies.

For the movie he swore that was coming up, he insisted that we go over the script (which included a romantic scene). He was also add in more romantic things that were NOT in the script. I feel embarrassed to have ever been in that situation.

To anyone this guy comes across, run the opposite direction! You will only get empty promises and lies from this guy.

Okay this guy does work at ruby tuesday. Dan griffin is legit. If you pull up Rons name on court case search he has alot of legal issues...if your daughters are auditioning dont let them do it. He tries to get the girls separated from their boyfriends to be alone with them to " Rehearse lines". Also he likes to go into local resturaunts in the Laurel area and try to get people to be in his shows. And for the record he does have a daughter that he can't get custody of. Please steer clear of this guy.

Just trying to be completely neutral here....I have met several of the "cast members" of this proposed series currently taking place. Does anyone know how to really verify any of the accusations noted above (one person even retracted their comment)? Having witnessed a few of the "practices" I have not seen anything questionable, although some of the individuals are "very odd", many appear to be legit at this point. Having talked with others truly involved in show biz, it has been explained that such "oddness" is quite common. Am not taking anything or anyone called producers or directors for their word at this point and will not until something is in writing and reviewed by a legal (which may never happen based of what I see above so far). If anyone has any additional info without getting emotions involved, please post.

Yes these people are correct, this guy is a freak. I worked with him at a restuarant in 2005 and he had the same MO. I did not drink the Ron kool-aid, but others did and their experience was identical as the ones described earlier. He really needs to be caught and sent away.

We were eating at the Denny's in Laurel off rt 1 last night and this guy started talking to us and pointed out my 9 yr old daughter as being perfect for the cast. I listened to his speech but I was VERY skeptical. My daughter however ate up every word and is nagging me to take her to "audition". My husband was with us which is why I found it a little odd that a creeper would even try anything with a man around. I told my husband I didn't really buy the story but he wasn't listening to our conversation so he didn't know what to think. Glad I found this page. I'm disappointed he turned out to be a fake. He told us a lot of "personal" stories but who knows what of it is true.

Yes all of the above info sounds about right to me. I was working with Ron at ruby Tuesday and you can tell just by the way he interacted with the females that he was kind of creepy but I took that as him just flirting. Then he starting talking about the show and it sounded good. Then he told me I had the roll and was offering me a good amount of money to play in the show which sounded to go too be true being as thou I've never acted before. And it just wasn't getting any where, he kept moving the shotguns dates, the contracts weren't legit. I just didn't see it going any where and removed myself from that situation

Just left Denny's and he was our waiter. He came off a little quirky, trying to sound like Arnold with the ' I'll be back' line, and telling stupid jokes. When we left he dropped his story about how he is a script writer for CBS and he just moved here from Settle, Washigton and he is working on a script for a tv series 'shadow beyond the badge' and it's like 7th Heaven but the main role is of a police officer instead of a priest. As I was leaving, my friend stated that she had banned him from her place o employment (she is a security director) because he was congregating around the local karate school freaking the children out.
As we were discussing this anothe customer said to us, you must be talking about Ron. Apparently he is well known for being inappropriate around children. I have many ties to local law enforcement and I will be making some called tomorrow!
He is still casting

He works at the Denny's in Laurel. He was ringing us up as he let slip that he was in a Laurel based TV Show "Shadow Behind the Badge". He told us that it was going to be the best new show and that he is playing a Cop with an edge and attitude. He told us that they were looking for extras and gave us a 1-888 number which my brother has. He told us to tell them Ron sent us when we called....smh I knew something wasn't right...curiosity led me here!!!

I just went to Denny's; Ron was our waiter. My husband had talked to him on another occasion, and since I am a (novel) writer, he thought I'd be interested. We talked about writing screenplays; he told my husband and me that CBS had picked up the series, and will air early next year. He described a couple of the scenes, including one tear-jerker involving one of the child actors and her "cop dad" (and if it came out as he described, it will be a REAL tear jerker). He said that some of the scenes had to be re-written because the Laurel Police told them it was unrealistic -- that "real cops wouldn't act that way." He mentioned that he had been a screenwriter on Frasier and the last season of 90210.

I have no idea if what he said was true; I haven't checked IMDB or any of the other databases. All I can say is that I've met Hollywood people before, and they're all kind of odd and full of themselves. He was no different from any of them. He got my order wrong at first; that's the only bad thing I have to say about him.

This guy is a bad accident waiting to happen - probably already HAS to some poor kid(s) somewhere. Lucky for him it wasn't MY Kiddo.
Got the same bucket of crap & the same creeped-out, too-good-to-be-true feeling about this A-hole.
Keep your Kids AWAY!!!
The Law better act on this before some Dad like Me does.
