Kevin Herrmann is an actor, writer, director, and other nouns.
He graduated from Arizona State University with a B.A. in Theatre in 2008. In local community theatre, his stage roles ranged from comic energy in The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 to his vulnerable rage in Columbinus. That trend was mirrored in independent films with characters ranging from a slapstick superhero sidekick in Following Suit to a manic meth head in Addict. And let’s not leave out the time he was a Jedi in the Spirits of the Force fan film trilogy.
He received an Emmy® award in 2010 for performing in the sci-fi series PROBED:signals. In 2011, his second Emmy® was for directing the dark comedy Cult Status. Both projects were also written by him.
He appeared on the Travel Channel in Hotel Secrets & Legends, the comedic online hit Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition, and hosted multiple virtual tour videos for WESTliving senior communities.
As a 2Cents Theatre company member from 2015-2019, Kevin performed in Den of Thieves, Nilbog: The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Troll 2, The Hitchhiker, Psychosical, The Walkers, Unreal City, and in six consecutive years of the annual Acting Out Ink Festival.
Aside from the stage and screen, Kevin can often be found trekking on mountain hikes, kickin’ back at the movies, or demolishing pizzas.

Den of Thieves
Kevin Herrmann as Flaco, Maggie’s ex and “brains” of the featured heist, vividly projects simultaneously street smarts, stupidity and bluster; later making a substantially reasonable argument for his irrational behaviors. Nice!
Gil Kaan; Den of Thieves review; Broadway World LA, January 17, 2016
…a septet of terrific actors … so completely vanish into their colorful roles that you may find yourself sticking around after the show for proof that they aren’t the characters they play. (I did, and they aren’t.) … D’Annunzio, Gallegos, Gamiz, Geller, Herrmann, Lanehart, and Quinn won me over each and every one, though I must confess particular admiration and affection for Herrmann’s irrepressible Flaco.
Steven Stanley; Den of Thieves review; StageSceneLA.com, January 2016
The acting is uniformly excellent, and positively illuminated by the presence of its two leads, each of whom approaches his role with a distinct and distinctly terrifying intensity. … Kevin Herrmann’s Klebold is the eye of that hurricane, a subtler but no less vengeful monster who briefly earns our sympathy in sequences where he sputters internal dialogues about why he wants out of his tormented teenage life.

Two actors also play the two murderers with spine-tingling and venomous zeal. You would think that Kevin Herrmann’s Dylan and Brandon Wiley’s Eric were the two students reborn. The entire ensemble is magnificent and terrifyingly recreates these mixed up kids’ difficult lives.

New World Order: The End Has Come
The mega props for this film must go to Mr. Kevin Herrmann for his performance as the sinister and smooth NWO High Chancellor. Herrmann delivers every syllable with ice-cold charisma and bone-chilling charm, often speaking reams of dialog with only his eyes. Herrmann is a (guilty) pleasure to watch, as viewers hiss the villain while secretly and eagerly anticipating his return to the screen.

dark play or stories for boys
…the psychosexual cyberspace drama dark play or stories for boys pays off big time … It’s disturbing and unpredictable … It’s also surprisingly funny, with some wonderful bit parts by “Netizens” Kevin Herrmann and Carly Kastner.
