Ron J. Rock can be seen alongside Gerard Butler and 50 Cent in the gritty crime saga, Den of Thieves.

The film follows an elite unit from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as it squares off against a crew of successful thieves who plan a seemingly impossible heist, the city’s Federal Reserve Bank. Ron plays ‘Junior’, the young banker who unexpectedly finds himself in the middle of the heist among the thieves (50 Cent, Pablo Schreiber) and unit leader (Butler).

The passionate unstoppable Rock may be a newcomer in the entertainment industry, but he is moving full speed ahead in making a name for himself, and Den of Thieves is the first of many projects you will hear his name attached to in 2018. Ron’s production company, Rocktober Productions is currently working on and developing several projects including music videos and a television series which is based on Rock’s life and his experience in the nightlife scene as a promoter. Rock is also an executive producer on the upcoming musical, Lucifer, which is slated to premiere in New York City in 2019.

Aside from acting and producing, Ron is an avid and dedicated businessman, and works on several projects around the world in the restaurant and travel industries. In his free time, he also enjoys interior designing, spending time outdoors and horseback riding. Ron splits his time between New York, Los Angeles and Miami, and lives with his Teacup Pomeranian, Esko.

Tell us a bit about the projects you are working on.

I’m currently working on a project of my own which I can’t wait to tell people more about. It’s a television show in development that is loosely based on experiences I have had, and will give people some insight to the world of a millennial. I am also producing a Broadway musical by the name of Lucifer. It is the story of the Bible through the devil’s eyes and is a dark comedy.

With your busy schedule, what do you like to do with your downtime?

On my downtime I like to go to the gym and practice some yoga. Those things keep me feeling good. I also enjoy all aspects of business and am always looking for new projects to work on.

When you go out to eat, where do you like to dine?

I love the restaurants that aren’t very fancy or busy. My favorite type of restaurant is home style food and I’m a big fan of Greek food too.

What types of dishes do you usually order?

I’m usually ordering Greek food or seafood :)

Do you cook?

I can cook. My specialty is breakfast.

What types of drinks do you order when out?

I try to not drink too much when I’m out but when I do order something it’s always a Jack and Coke.

Do you prepare drinks at home?

Drinking is more of a going out thing for me so I don’t do much at home that takes preparation when it comes to drinks.

Do you own a home bar?

Nope. Nothing fancy.

Do you stock your house with any spirits?

I just keep red and white wine around for the stay at home, chill nights.

If you did own a home bar, what would it be like?

If I had a bar I would definitely keep 1942 around. It is essential for parties and for some reason, ladies love it. I’d also stock up on Jack Daniels, Stoli Vodka, and white and red wine.

What is your favorite drink/cocktail?

Jack and Coke.

Have you ever been a bartender?

I have never been a bartender but I have done some promoting in nightclubs so I have become pretty good at making cocktails for my friends.
