Darren Moorman speaks to John Marcellis '85

Former McCallie teacher Darren Moorman speaks with John Marcellis '85 about his new movie.


Former McCallie teacher Darren Moorman is receiving worldwide acclaim for the latest movie he produced, Blue Miracle, starring Dennis Quaid, and now streaming on Netflix. Mr. Moorman, who taught Bible in the early 1990s under the guidance of John Strang, left the Ridge in the late 90s for Hollywood, where he gained fame as an actor before becoming a successful movie producer, concentrating on faith-based topics.

In June, Mr. Moorman visited McCallie and joined his old friend, John Marcellis ’85, Director of Weekend Activities, and Steve Hearn ’87, Vice President of Advancement, to recall stories about his days teaching on the Ridge and his ventures into acting and producing.
