Rev. Smith is looking to expand his acting career, auditioning for a role in the cast of CBS’s City Morgue, which is currently under development. According to promotional material, the show “aims to capture the tense drama and action of working at a morgue in one of America’s largest cities”. Smith is up for the role of Derrick Johnson, a morgue assistant with a wry sense of humor and a mysterious past. Smith says that in trying out for the part, he will draw on his previous acting experiences in Vendetta: A Christmas Story, his brief role in the Sci-Fi channel’s Mansquito, as well as the real life experience of having had a summer job working the so-called “graveyard shift” as a morgue assistant in his hometown of Norwood, MA.
