News: COLT Announces Death of Danny Roddick

COLT Studio Group announced today that Buckshot Man and star of its new release Brotherhood Danny Roddick died on September 13. The cause of death was not given. “We are devastated and saddened by this tragedy,” says president and creative director John Rutherford. “We have watched Danny grow up, and everyone here at COLT Studio Group extends our most heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and loved ones. He will be missed.”

Roddick joined COLT as a Buckshot exclusive in 2005. He gained a following with performances in Buckshot productions such as HARD Studies, Boot Black Blues, BIG RIG: Extended Cab Edition and Olympus’s HOSTILE. His current release is director Jerry Douglas’s Brotherhood. “The loss of anyone so young and talented and especially a sweet and fragile individual is heartbreaking,” says Douglas, “but for someone who was rapidly approaching the peak of his career, it is doubly painful.”

Roddick, who was a trophy boy at the Grabby Awards in Chicago this year, also recently appeared in director Dennis Bell’s AMG Brazil two-part movie AMAZONIA: Capture & Release. “I had the pleasure of working with Danny recently and will miss him greatly,” says Bell.

Director Kristofer Weston adds, “He was one of the most caring and sensitive people I’ve ever had the privilege of working with on set. A truly beautiful man inside and out, and I’m honored to have called him a friend.”
