Shooting” TOTAL RECALL @ Sony Studios. 10am call time. Back into wardrobe and ready to rock & roll! Again, I did a bit of waiting before finally getting on set and meeting Jessica Biel…whoa, that young lady is beautiful; like naturally beautiful, not so much in a typical Hollywood way. More like a girl next-door knock out. She’s really nice too.
The thing about doing these really small parts is that they can…not shoot them. I had a weird feeling that could happen so I was really happy to finally get called to set and interact with the director, Len Wiseman. I was dressed the same as many of the background players so I’m not really sure that they knew I wasn’t actually one of them. It’s a $200 million dollar production with a ton of things going so I just needed to do as I was told and hope for the best; there wasn’t much more I could do than that.
After a while of doing that scene we broke for lunch and afterwards I waited around for several hours. Finally the word came to me that I was wrapped…without shooting “my stuff”. Ouch! It certainly wasn’t what I wanted to hear, but I have enough experience in the game to know that booking a job doesn’t mean I will get to actually shoot the job. Well, I got to shoot a little and that’s better than none. I’d been on set since 10am; it’s now 8:35pm and I’m supposed to be at work @ 9pm. I had called the restaurant earlier to let them know I would, most likely, be at least a little late.
Oh yeah, I got a photo with Colin, but I promised him I wouldn’t post it until after the movie opened. Cool dude that Colin Farrell.
