Wow! Welcome back to the biz. Alicia, Brooke, Jenny, Tracy, Don and Rose, my agents and assistants @ KSA seem to be really be in the business of "get Stephon Fuller a job!". I love it. I had 5 auditions today; four commercially and one for print.

They are doing what they are expected to do and I have to do my part. I had a pretty good day. They say "you can't have it all" and I don’t, but I've got a lot. I really do. In the biz and out.

Audition: "T-mobile" @ Spot Casting. This is a mistake that I have made before and I have to stop. When the call came in from my agent, they told me "sides are available @ LA Casting". For some reason I forget over and over to download and prepare the sides that are "available @ LA Casting". I guess because commercials don’t usually have too much copy.

So, of course, I get to the audition at the Casting Studios and within 30 seconds they are taking my photo and bringing me in the room. It wasn't a lot of dialogue, but enough that I needed to know what I was doing. Fortunately, my wonderful auditioning partner, who had heard the group explanation, was more than willing to help. In the end, the audition went great.

Audition: "K-mart" @ Joe Blake Casting. This was great because my auditioning partner was Dionne Lea. Dionne and I did a play together back in '97 when I lived in New York. It's always great to see people from years ago that are still in the game.

Audition: "Dairy Queen" @ Joe Blake Casting. Another one that goes well.

Audition/Print Go-See: "Audi" @ Brigid McBride Casting. I get to the location in Venice 90-minutes late because of some of the other appointments running long. 5 digital pics and I’m in and out pretty quick.

Audition: “Wendy’s” @ Ross Lacy Casting. Fortunately, I was still able to get seen for this one; I was an hour late. Actually, my auditioning partner from the “Dairy Queen” spot earlier was my partner for this one too. This caps a great day of running around LA.© 1993 - 2005 All Rights Reserved

Stephon -

Glad you had a nice trip. I also got to finally spend time with family this past holiday season (thanksgiving & Christmas). I hadnt been back home in over 2 years and hadnt been up to see my brother & his children since they were born. I sadly hadnt realized exactly how much I truly missed & appreciated my family. This was a wonderful way to bring 2005 to a close - and just as you said, BRING ON 2006!

Sadly - over the past 4 months or so, it looks as tho both of my new agents have proven to be useless. :-( Any insights on how I might get a meeting with a better agent?

Congradulations On a Very Busy Day - and what I hope will be a very busy & successful year for you.

As Always - Thank You for writing your blog, it brings me hope & inspiration on a daily basis.

Peace & Thanks,

Best Wishes,

Hey Jesse,

I'm glad you got to visit your family. For me, it make all of the difference in the world.

The photo you have, I think, is okay. It's not bad, but it also doesn't really jump off of the screen either. It's a tough thing to get the right photo. I don't think you are way off the mark though.
