Michael Wetherbee's film debut in 2012 was called "beautiful, gory, and surprisingly emotional" (USA Today).
His recent work includes HBO's "The Plot Against America", Dan Sallit's Berlinale feature "Fourteen", and Ricky D'Ambrose's NYFF selection "Six Cents in the Pocket". He has received positive reviews from Film Pulse, Influx Magazine, Film School Rejects, Comedy Central's Adult Swim, Huffington Post, Time Out NY, and MicroWave Cinema, which said, "Michael Wetherbee channels Old Stone Face, Buster Keaton...and approaches the character with an equal sense of desperation and mystery." His recent film work has screened at Cannes, SXSW, Tribeca, Berlin Film Festival, New York Film Festival, and Viennale.
Theatrically he has worked off-Broadway and regionally. His stage work includes productions with the Theatre for the New City, Players Theater, State of Maine Theater, American Theater for Actors, Roanoke Island Festival, WorkShop Theater Group, and as an original member of the Horse Trade Theater Company's resident acting company The Drafts. NY Theatre said of his performance in the Time Out NY Theater Pick Gabriel (Redd Tale Theater), "The highlight is Michael Wetherbee as Gabriel. He is at once supremely intelligent and childish, and his longing to belong seeps out of every pore."
His commercial work includes spots for Google, GE Appliances, The New York Standard Watch Co., Comcast, ANA Airlines, Norton Healthcare, and CA Technology. He played the Superhero in Grammy Award winner Diplo's "Earthquake" music video. He has also appeared in videos for Ambler - "Product", Big Data - "Clean", Mr. Flash - "Midnight Blue", The Gatherers - "Infinity and Gloom", and Spirit Animal - "Regular World".
