Johnny Berchtold is Your Fave New Actor You Just Don’t Know it Yet—WATCH

If you caught regulation hottie John Berchtold as the young Ted Kaczynski on the Discovery Channel’s 2017 FBI crime drama Manhunt: UNABOMBER, you may recall the the indelible impact that engendered a major crush on the then unknown actor—so it was awesome to catch the actor’s  recent hysterical, amazing, and unforgettable short theatrical vignettes on TikTok and posted to Twitter.

Last year Mashable praised Berchtold’s performance in one he did with his sister Kristine Berchtold. Mashable said about the video, You can’t really explain the bond between siblings. One minute you have them in a chokehold for dominance over the TV remote, the next minute you’re texting them surreal memes. Even if you love them, eventually they’ll grind your gears in one way or another. And when they do, what’s the go-to revenge? Spamming them with texts? Barging in their room without asking? How about some passive-aggressive slam poetry?  Kristine Berchtold didn’t answer her brother John’s FaceTime call, so he decided to get back at her in the most sibling way he could — by sending her a little performance titled ‘Sister Betrayal.'”

“Yeah I had a sister…but more like a fister, fake sister, she needs some lister… ine, to rinse out her bad breath. And by bad breath I mean, the stench of death upon our relationship.” He goes on like this, punctuating his on-the-fly rhymes with cheeky jabs at his sister.

“We have a very comedic relationship in that we will go after each other in that way,” John told Mashable. “Normally, I’ll leave a voicemail pretending to be an angry businessman demanding his money to be returned (among other made up characters), or I’ll simply text her “YOU’LL RUE THE DAY!” It’s sort of this big running joke.”

Halfway through the video when he’s in the middle of going off about his sister “sitting up pretty, up in the throne of, Kings of Leon—” the recording cuts out, but he starts ranting again as if nothing happened.

While John says he’s never done slam poetry live onstage before, sometimes he will call his sister and improv a character on the fly, and she’ll roll with it. “She will ‘yes, and…’ and play along, and then I’ll hang up and we won’t even speak for the rest of the day. We don’t take the phone calls very seriously.”

Kristine showed off their sibling phone habits too by lovingly calling him out on Twitter after she posted the video.

Recent videos poke fun at many of the tropes of popular movies like when a teen movie wants to let you know who the best friend is (below).

Or how actors in movies eat their food.

The Poke said of How actors eat, “Actor and cinematographer, Johnny Berchtold, recorded a short acting masterclass in how his fellow thespians cope with eating in films, and the clip went viral. When you watch it, you’ll see why.How many times have you witnessed an almost carbon copy of that frustrating, yet compelling scene?

He added a little more insight from personal experience.

Johnny’s skills impressed Twitter enough to get the clip more than 106,000 retweets and a bunch of positive comments.

Berchtold’s IMDb page says the Actor, Cinematographer, and Editor is an actor and cinematographer, known for Manhunt (2017), A Hard Problem and Murder Among Friends (2016).
