Investigating The

Beyond The Box

when i was a child living in ealing,

outside of london, england,

 the "doctor who" british television series

first aired on my birthday, November 23rd.

 I have been a fan ever since.

Welcome to wazacop!


this is the official website for gregory schmauss.

I'm a film producer and an actor.

 I've been  a member of the screen actor's guild [SAG-AFTRA]

since 1989.  You can find more info about my Film credits at

One of my favorite roles was that of an "angry shareholder"

 on the nbc television series, "The Office".  my acting career

started in 1975.  i joined the screen actors guild

 shortly after my role in the movie, "My Blue Heaven".

i  spent 20 years as a sworn, full-time deputy sheriff.  my escape from the horrors of the "real" world was and continues to be my interest and involvement in sci-fi, horror, fantasy, animation and crime drama. 

My career as a san bernardino county deputy sheriff explains why

my website url is "Wazacop".  many other actors have backgrounds

in law-enforcement. Robert Conrad who starred as "James West"

in the TV series, "the Wild wild west" was a deputy sheriff for

8 years in bear valley, ca. lou ferrigno, "The incredible hulk" is

currentlya los angeles county reserve deputy sheriff and

for almost 20 years, steven seagal has been a fully commissioned

deputy with the jefferson parish sheriff's office in louisiana.

I'm  writing a crime novel which in part will be based on my exploits

and experiences as a deputy and will include so much more!  I hope

to follow in the footsteps of the best-selling author and

grand master of crime and police, joseph wambaugh, who spent

 14 years of service with the Los angeles police department.
