Michael Brea

Michael Brea is an aspiring actor from Brooklyn, New York who was arrested on 11/23/2010 for allegedly killing his mother, Yannick Brea (55) with a Samurai sword. News reports credit him with appearances in the former ABC TV show "Ugly Betty" and the movie "Step Up 3D" but at the time of his arrest did not have an entry on IMDB, which suggests his roles were very minor.
