Rene Guercy is one fourth of the novice team behind Cloud9 TV, the production/web company that produces the hit online series entitled "Money & Violence". In addition, he is also one of the lead characters on "Money and Violence", playing the role of a loyal and dangerous stickup artist infamously known as "Miz". With over 19 million page views, immense support from hip- hop's elite, and tons of media coverage, the 24-episode show has turned into an online sensation! Heralded by the Tribeca Film Festival as accurately "showing the anger, pain and fear of living outside of the law through myriad of diverse male characters", "Money & Violence" has drawn comparisons to HBO's, "The Wire" for its rawness and gritty story line.Born in Haiti and raised in Brooklyn, Rene's childhood was a reflection of the harsh realities of growing up surrounded by poverty and violence. After losing his father, who was shot due to violence stemming from Haiti's 1991 coup d' état of then president Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Rene emigrated to the United States with his mother. He was an only child with little knowledge of the English language. Eventually, Rene was forced to grow up quickly and adapt to the cultural differences in New York. He developed a detached attitude towards school because of the language barrier. The frustration lead him to misbehave, fight and perform poorly in class. It was only after a cousin introduced him to hip-hop, which was the first thing he was able to relate to since moving to the United States, that he was able to fit in.Through his tough exterior, Rene has been able to solidify the character of "Miz" on the show. Fans can see the depth and levels that go into playing him with each episode. Although centered on drugs and violence to catch the attention of viewers, larger themes about faith, integrity, friendship and loyalty anchor the show. Those themes are the universal characteristics that all great stories hold. Moving forward with its second season, "Money & Violence" has partnered with "Tidal" and "Lions Gate" film production. They will also launch a new site and expand the brand. Rene will continue to execute his role on the show while expanding his acting career. Show less «
