Daytime Identity Thief Screenwriter

Posted: Updated:

Jerry Eeten has a pretty cool life.  He and his wife are teachers in St. Petersburg, FL, they have a beautiful family, and Mr. Eeten also happens to be the screenwriter of a very big Hollywood movie starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman, "Identity Thief." 

Eeten toiled for years living in Hollywood, trying to get some notice as an actor and a writer.  But it wasn't until he moved AWAY from Hollywood, that he actually got some attention.  He sat on the script for five years, and then it was picked up and got made into a major motion picture.

He vows to stay in St. Petersburg, because that's where his life is now, but he's still writing, and has another screenplay ready to go, and is working on a pilot for a TV show, too!
