    Hi Penntertainment!

    I’m from UTV, and the video is actually from the show I’m producing (Penn Lunacy)! It has me taking the role of Gandalf too haha.

    Just wanted to to reach out and say thank you for the publicity and praise, and I’m excited to actually be mentioned on your wonderful site. It’s been a recent treasure trove of info for us undergrads just now deciding to go into entertainment; You’re making an awesome difference 🙂
