SHOCKING NEWS!......I was released from being on avail for another "Sprint" national commercial today. Of course I say "shocking" as a joke; it seems getting released is the norm for me these days. I gotta tell you, it's getting old. There was a time when I got a lot fewer callbacks, but if I got a callback there was a really good chance I would book the job. I look forward to the days of having multiple conflicts again.

I'm glad I don't truly trip out over these things. I hear it drives some actors absolutely crazy - getting oh so close, but not getting the job. My take is that obviously I am doing much more right than I am doing wrong and that is a good thing. So I'll just keep it moving in a positive direction and trust that my agents will be patient with me. I will work again in this town! I had 3 really good auditions this week and hope to get some callbacks. FORWARD!

Stephon, I feel your pain, bro. In the nearly three years that I've been here, I've been called back and put on avail without booking so many times that I'm starting to feel like the Atlanta Braves in the playoffs.

I know our time is coming, however, and I remind myself of that every day.

Hey Hal,

Yeah man, I try to take it stride. I look at it as I've booked 25 or so spots and have gotten to travel for work and stuff. All those times somebody else got released. Hopefully, my turn will come back again soon.

I know how it feels to see a commercial that you were close to booking airing on t.v. Keep up the positivity, great things are in store for you!
