Written and created by Gavin, Lodge 49 is a modern fable set in Long Beach and centered on Dud (Russell), a deadbeat but charming ex-surfer who joins a fraternal order hoping to reclaim the simple, happy lifestyle he lost when his father died. Through the Lodge and his newfound connection with the other members, Dud will come to find the missing sense of purpose in his life and confront his deepest fears and greatest hopes. The series is slated to premiere in 2018.
Russell plays Cooper in Netflix’s critically praised series Black Mirror. Earlier this year, he starred in Richard Linklater’s film Everybody Wants Some!! and also recently starred in Jeff Grace’s Folk Hero & Funny Guy. He recently wrapped production on Matt Spicer’s Ingrid Goes West opposite Elizabeth Olsen and Oren Uziel’s crime thriller Shimmer Lake opposite Benjamin Walker. Next year, Russell will star opposite Anna Kendrick, Lisa Kudrow and Craig Robinson in Jeffry Blitz’s Table 19 and Jay Baruchel’s hockey sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers, opposite TJ Miller and Liev Schreiber. Russell is repped by UTA.
