Because Brett Novek performed in director David DeCoteau’s movie Brotherhood V: Alumni, I sent Mr. DeCoteau a message asking what it was like working with Brett. Here is his response, dated January 20, 2009:
Just had dinner with Brett tonight. He’s doing great and looks better than ever. He did a great job for me in THE BROTHERHOOD V: ALUMNI and we are planning on working together again soon. Brett is a real sweetheart and is VERY serious about his acting.
In fact, Brett has already been cast in another DeCoteau movie, Nighfall, with filming in February and a theoretical release date of June, 2009.
BTW, it looks like Brett is appearing in an episode of Criminal Minds on April 8th.

Below is a link to a video of Brett Novek singing “Stand by Me” with actor friend Jon Fleming. Jon is known for playing the role of Adam in the gay horror soap, Dante’s Cove.
I like the Brett hairstyle, not so much the singing.
It’s good to see that Brett still has the sparkle in the eye.

Someone has finally posted the Brotherhood V: Alumni movie trailer on YouTube, so now I can link to it. The movie had originally been scheduled to be released on 12/19/08, but that has been pushed back until at least February, 2009.
I like David DeCoteau’s work anyway and would have wanted to see this film no matter what, but with Brett Novek in it I eagerly look forward to it being available somewhere someday. Some scenes look steamy.

Brett Novek stars and gets top billing in a new horror flick by one of the most renown directors of the genre, David DeCoteau. The movie is The Brotherhood V: Alumni, the latest edition in DeCoteau’s series of fraternal based fright films. The filming wrapped at end of September and the (limited) theatrical release date is 12/19/08.
For those who are familiar with and like DeCoteau’s work, you will probably not be disappointed in the viewing experience that this movie will provide, especially seeing Brett get the usual DeCoteau treatment. For those not familiar, let me say that whereas the average horror film has women walking around and being chased while inexplicably in their underwear, DeCoteau helps to balance the playing field by showing far more realistic scenes of men hanging around and being terrorized while wearing only their boxer briefs. HoYay!
Synopsis: “Who killed Leslie on prom night? Was it the hunky high school football star, his pretty girlfriend, the mean-spirited flirt, the prankster, or the juvenile delinquent? Or, were they all culpable? Ancient grudges surface as the mayhem spreads amongst the most popular and attractive students at Sunnydale High.”
Granted, it is low budget, but it’s still a movie and Brett getting a starring role is a big deal. Whether the movie comes to your city or not, you must see this movie. From what I have seen on the trailer, you will like it.

The celebrity newsmagazine show Extra, has taken notice that model Brett Novek is “eligible eye candy”. In a short clip for the show, Brett is shown multiple times playing tennis (shirtless) in between answering a few questions of the type that teenage girls would be interested in.
On the subject of kissing, Brett says that all he expects on a first date is a kiss. As the gentleman that he is, it should be expected that that is as forward as Brett would be. He’s most in the mood to do it if his date if wearing a little gloss.
Brett reveals his favorite pickup technique, which is to start talking to someone by saying they look familiar and then letting the conversation go from there. He sweetly says that his best feature is his “caring heart”.
The “news” in the segment comes when Brett reveals that he has a crush on fellow Floridian, actress Ashley Greene. He looks to the camera and lets Ashley know if she’s interested, “call me.”

Following a tip to see another edition of Brett Novek‘s commercial work, I made a point to check out Tony Horton’s informercials for various fitness programs and products. I didn’t go out of my way to find it, but staying up late one night, I happened to finally see Horton’s 30 minute pitch to sell his “10 Minute Trainer” program. There I saw Brett appearing throughout the commercial in very brief clips that were used to suggest the (atypical) results that late night TV watchers could aspire to achieve for only two monthly payments of $39.95.
I believe I have seen every example of print and television work that Brett has done, so I should be habituated to his appearance by now. However, the first second that Brett appeared on screen during this ad I literally gasped because of Brett’s stunning good looks. The production people did a really great job of making Brett appear at his very best.
You know how in food ads the product displayed is crafted to be impossibly perfect to make it appear more desirable? Similarly, in this informercial the body of Brett (as the supposed end result of the offered fitness program) is shown as a flawless representation of the male physique. Of course, Brett brought his exceptional natural attributes to the production, but they were enhanced by the right lighting and makeup to produce a wonderfully ideal skin coloration. Brett’s body contours and the facial expression that he was directed to hold gave an impression of an only slightly updated version of a statue from the classical period of Greek art.
I know that in this case the display model is stamped “not for sale, display only”, but I wouldn’t mind making monthly payments of $39.95 in perpetuity to get me something like that.

Brett Novek has a role in the upcoming movie H.U.M.P – The People’s Agency, produced by Urban Zebra Productions. H.U.M.P is a comedy about four former CIA operatives who apply their skills in counter-espionage to being romantic matchmakers.
Brett plays Beau Lincoln, the son of a rich businessman, who is peddling a highly advanced computer chip known as “Black Magic” on the black market. The CIA enlists the aid of the four former operatives, who are also the creators of the chip, to halt Brett’s character from selling this technology. The four have formed their own organization that they call “H.U.M.P.”, which is where the name of the movie comes from. The H.U.M.P. members each possess a specialized skill that will be needed to bring Lincoln down, but one of them (a stereotypical geek) demands that the others help him in his love life as a condition for his participation. Comedy ensues.
Strangely, the original press release for the movie spells Brett with only one ‘T’ and the credits at the end of the preliminary movie tease have Novek spelled “Novak”. Nevertheless, it is indeed the Sunshine State’s one and only Brett Michael Novek. As long as he didn’t have to perform any of his lines while standing on a rotating platform, he should do a good job in this film.
