Adam Ratcliffe moved to New York City in 2003 and lucked out with an auspicious introduction to a scene study class led by “Law and Order” and “Daredevil” star Vincent D’Onofrio, who immediately took a liking to Adam. He studied several years with the star of “Full Metal Jacket” & “Jurassic World” and within two years landed a principle role on Law and Order: Criminal Intent, as Jimmy the tow truck driver. He quickly became a member of both SAG and AFTRA in 2005, and in that same month he landed a starring role in his hometown in a three million dollar indie film entitled “Consequences”, renamed for national distribution by TLA “Playroom”. The film won Best Horror Film in the NYC/LA International Independent Film Festival and best director for Olivier-nominated Stephen Stahl. Adam again teamed up with Stephan Stahl in a well-received off-Broadway play Straight to Hell, based on a novel of a heroine addict from Wildwood, New Jersey. Adam was given mention in the New York Post for his extremely realistic performance of a junkie criminal who is forced to face the grueling task of recovery in the face of despair. Adam was the original writer of “Philly Kid” and sold the rights to Adam Mervis and Warner Bros. and executive producer Joel Silver & After Dark Pictures. Adam Ratcliffe was paid for story by credit of this nationally-distributed film, now on demand. He also played a small role on HBO’s hit TV series, ‘Boardwalk Empire’ in Season 4, Episode 10. He has steadily been working on major nationally and internationally distributed films and hit T.V. series as of late and can be seen as the sheriff in Weinstein’s Southpaw. He enjoys playing acoustic shows professionally throughout the tri-state area.
