Felix on “In the Dark”
Krantz is an actor and filmmaker, born and raised in Los Angeles. He began working as an assistant to a comedy writer at the age of 16 and has gone on to work steadily as a writer and director.
He got his acting start in television when Lena Dunham offered him a role on her then-upcoming show “Girls” after noticing his first starring role in the independent film “0s &1s.” Since then, Krantz has gone on to appear in “House of Lies,” “New Girl,” and from there, recurred on “Switched at Birth.” Other notable guest television appearances include “The League,” “Broke Girls,” “Get Shorty,” “Strangers” for Facebook Watch, and most recently “You’re The Worst.”
Krantz’s breakthrough accomplishment was his feature film “Babysitter,” which he wrote, produced and directed. It premiered at SXSW in 2015 and was purchased and distributed by MarVista Entertainment. His web-series Neurotica, which he co-created and stars in, became a viral sensation in 2015 and has since been picked up by Endemol Studios in association with Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (“The Office”).
He has starred in numerous films as well, from independents like “Shut Up & Drive” (Tribeca 2016), “XX” (Sundance 2017) and “Softness of Bodies” (LAFF 2018), to a role in “CHiPs,” directed by Dax Shepard. Recently, he appeared in “Door No. 1” for Hulu, and is starring in the upcoming independent films “3 Day Weekend,” “Everything is Free” and “Tone Deaf.”
