ARMORED

COLUMBUS SHORT (Ty Hackett) started entertaining at the age of three by putting on shows for his folks' enjoyment. His family later relocated to Los Angeles where, by his early teens, Columbus had landed work in many television commercials. As a senior at the prestigious Orange County School of the Arts, he was offered a part of Broadway's famed show STOMP! He then went on to choreograph Britney Spears' In the Zone tour.

Short began his acting career starring in the 2006 releases Save the Last Dance: 2 and Accepted opposite Jonah Hill and Justin Long. In 2007, he did an arc on Aaron Sorkin's critically praised but short-lived showbiz drama "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” where he played "Darius”, one of the show's writers.

Later that year, Columbus landed two Screen Gems films Stomp the Yard and This Christmas. In Stomp, he played the lead role of "DJ", a street dancer whose efforts to get a college education are sidelined when he joins in his fraternity's effort to win a step dancing competition. The film was #1 at the box office two weeks in a row and grossed over 73.4 million dollars. In This Christmas, he co-starred opposite Idris Elba, Regina King and Chris Brown in a drama centered around a family's first holiday together in four years. Since then, he's hardly had a chance to breathe.

In 2008, Short co-starred in Screen Gems remake of the horror flick Quarantine and Darnell Martin's Cadillac Records. Columbus received the NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in Cadillac, which he starred in opposite Beyonce Knowles, Jeffrey Wright and Adrien Brody. His musical skills shine in this film as he plays the young and talented but self-destructive harp player / singer Little Walter.

After blowing fans away with his musicianship, Short has been working with Grammy Award winning producers, the Avila Brothers, on his much anticipated album entitled "Act One: Dimes and Dolls”. In addition to his off the charts vocal skills, Short plays the bass, piano and drums showing the world he's a force to be reckoned with. Columbus recently starred alongside Kate Beckinsale in Dark Castle's adaptation of the comic book Whiteout, a thriller released by Warner Bros.

Currently, Short is reuniting with Stomp the Yard director Sylvain White to shoot Warner Bros.' film adaptation of the DC graphic novel The Losers. He co-starts as "Pooch”, one of the members of a CIA black ops team members who root out those who targeted them for assassination. Other cast members include Chris Evans, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Idris Elba. He also wrapped work on Screen Gems' remake of the British comedy Death at a Funeral, which he co-stars alongside Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan, Martin Lawrence and Zoe Saldana. As one of Hollywood's young leading men, he also plans to write and produce both television and film through his production company, Great Picture Show Productions.
