Ross Thomas is an actor and producer, known for Shelter (2007), Soul Surfer (2011) and Extraction: The Plundering of the Amarakaeri Reserve (2010).

In 2005, Thomas played the title role in What's Bugging Seth as a deaf man determined to find love and career success despite his handicap. The film won awards at the DancesWithFilms Festival, the Santa Cruz Film Festival and the Empire Film Festival

Other film credits include starring roles in films such as The Cutting Edge 2: Going for the Gold, American Pie: The Naked Mile, the Wayans’ Brothers comedy Dance Flick, in which he spoofed Channing Tatum’s character in Step Up, "Burning Palms", and the indie flick Shelter, which went on to win the GLAAD Outstanding Film Award in 2009.

On the small screen, Thomas was a series regular on the Nickelodeon original teen series Beyond the Break. Thomas played ‘Bailey,’ a stellar surfer who had a reputation for being a playboy. The show aired from 2006-2009. He also had a recurring role on General Hospital as 'Brandon,' a hardened criminal just released from jail. Thomas has also appeared on NCIS, Lie to Me, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: NY, Cold Case and Living with Fran.

In 2012, Ross was selected amongst fierce competition to host the Cadillac ATS vs. The World campaign, one of the largest productions in the history of General Motors. Cadillac ATS vs. The World was created to break the mold of automotive advertising to connect with a new generation of customers. Set in four countries around the world, the campaign consists of spectacular demonstrations of the nimble, quick and fun driving dynamics of the Cadillac ATS. In addition to commercials, Ross hosted 20 mini-documentaries centered around the car, the task of filming the campaign and various cultural segues. Directed by racing legend Jeff Zwart and award-winning documentary filmmaker, Joe Berlinger, Ross and his crew embarked on a rugged adventure that bridged continents in search of some of the most technically challenging segments of road around. Highlighted locations include Patagonia, Monaco, Morocco and China. Ross had once in a lifetime interviews with the last native speaker of the Yaghan language in Puerto Williams to members of the Shao Lin Kung Fu academy in China.

Game Changers, also featuring omg! Insider's Kevin Frazier, highlights professional athletes who use their public image to make positive changes in the lives of fans in need. Whether on or off the field, Game Changers takes an inspirational look at how sports positively impacts individuals and the communities they serve. Ross also guest starred opposite Ramon Rodriguez, Terry O'Quinn and RZA in the pilot episode of the 2013 FOX TV show, Gang Related, directed by renowned film director, Allen Hughes and produced by Brian Grazer and Imagine Entertainment.
