Callback “FedEx” @ Ross Lacy Casting. Yes! Wow, this was a blast. I had a great time. I’m not always the most social person at auditions because I’m usually reading or somehow self-involved. It’s something I’m actively trying to change about myself. I was in rare form today, cracking jokes about anything and everything. And…oh yeah, the callback. I went in for the same role as the first audition, but they also had me read for the “boss” character too. We were in and out in a flash; but wait. Before I got 15 feet away the production team sent word that they wanted me to stay and come in for a different spot with another group of actor’s. That commercial spot had a bunch of dialogue that I was trying to become familiar with in a hurry. Then we got in the room and the dialogue wasn’t on the copy board.
My training kicked in and I didn’t let it throw me. I knew what I knew, as far as the copy went, and what I couldn’t remember, word for word, I let it go and made it up…but I made sure to get the name of the company correct. The director; the cool, funny & amazing Tim Godsall, kept throwing different things at us. I think we handled it well. It was a great way to start off the weekend!
Afterwards I headed out to the Los Angeles Auto Show to check out my dream car – the 2013 Acura TSX. It’s super nice, but still relatively economical.
I’m not finished yet. Shortly after I got home the casting office called and informed me that I have another callback Monday morning for the same “FedEx” commercial. Yes!
