Jerry Macaluso Takes On Face Off Season 2!

Ever watch a trailer for a movie or TV show and go "Hey! I know that guy!!" Well, the trailer for the new season of Syfy channel's Face Off just did that to me! You all will recognize Jerry Macaluso as the guy behind SOTA Toys wildly successful Street Fighter action figure line, and more recently, head of Pop Culture Shock Collectibles (who have just launched a Thundercats statue line that will blow your mind), but what many people don't realize is he has an insane background in the special effects world. One look at his IMDB listing will reveal titles like Ed Wood, Mystery Men, Little Nicky, Darkman, Fist of the North Star and House on Haunted Hill, among many others. Now, Jerry will be pitting his considerable skills against the chosen few picked to compete in this annual competition/reality show! Here's the skinny for those that missed last season...

Face Off is a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination that allows them to create amazing works of living art. The contestants are tasked with elaborate feature challenges including executing full body paint make up on models and creating their own horror villain. Not only will the show incorporate effects make-up, it will include a wide range of skill sets including prosthetics, 3-D design, sculpting, eye enhancers, casting and molding. Each episode involves incredible reveals of the competitors' finished work, and the drama of one contestant being sent home by the panel of expert and celebrity judges. It all culminates in one winner and one grand prize that will launch a career.

Here's the trailer!

Tune in to the Syfy channel Wed, January 11th, 2012 and cheer on one of our own!!
