Callback: “Macy’s” @ Action Casting.  This was fun and I had another great “wife” to work with.  It was over in a flash, but “my wife” and I had a great time.  One day I’ll get a real wife and have a great time…one day.

I attended an all-day looping/adr workshop today.  I’ll admit that after car buying yesterday and working all night last night I was exhausted…but I was glad I was there.  It’s certainly an area of the business I want to learn more about…and a potentially very lucrative area of the business.

Ooops.  I bought a car today.  It’s even more than I expected to get.  It’s a White 2012 Acura TSX w/Navigation and black leather interior.  It’s Acura-certified with just over 10,000 miles on it.  It’s the exact car I wanted. Seriously.  I’ve worked hard and I feel that this is a good move for me.  Now I just have to pay for it…

Audition: “Macy’s” @ Action Casting.  I don’t think I’ve ever auditioned for this company before, but I’m glad I’m here today.  The read was fun and went very well, PLUS I had a great “wife” to work with.

On another note I’m knee-deep in my search for new wheels.  It’s really exciting…and also a bit scary.  I’ve been debt-free for the last several years and I’m literally coming off of my least successful year as a professional actor.  Do I really want to take on debt right now?  Sizable debt?  My net worth will still be positive, but still.  Yeah, I’m ready to take the risk. 

I’m sure about the car: Acura TSX

Not sure about the year: 2010 or 2011.  There are a few upgrades that I like in the 2011 versus the 2010.

I’m sure about the exterior color: White, Metallic, Silver or Black…in that order.

I’m sure about the interior color: Black.  I like the beige, but black will be easier to maintain over the long haul and I have a history of keeping my cars for an average of 9 years.

I’m sure that I want the navigation/tech package.

Lastly, I’m sure that I want it to be a certified car.

I’ve got my financing in place and I’m ready to pull the trigger.  The financing is funny because I was offered the best avail rate from Navy Federal Credit Union.  I’m not sure I believe it.  I say that because my fear of rejection is so deep-seeded that I almost always feel that I’ll be turned down in some form or fashion.  I mean I was surprised that I got the loan; I’m just surprised that I qualified for the best available rate.  Maybe I’m growing up.

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Yeah, right, LOL!  I have no Valentine.  But I decided today that I’m going to be my own Valentine and get myself a newer car.  I plan to get something pretty nice too.  I have no wife, no girlfriend, no children, no debt…I should have a relatively nice car.  Right? 

Don’t get me wrong my current ’98 Honda Accord EX Coupe w/173,217 miles that I bought in ’04 has been nothing short of great, but I’m ready to have something a little nicer for myself.  I’m really excited!

Audition: “Good Luck Charlie” @ Stiner/Block Casting.  …let’s’ just pretend this one didn’t happen.

Audition: “Geico” @ Francene Selkirk Casting.  This was fun. I wore shorts.  Nuff said.

Audition: “US Navy PSA” @ Francene Selkirk Casting.  Even though this was just an interview type of audition I don’t think I came across as all that interesting.

Audition: “Ford” @ Ross Lacy Casting.  My wife in this audition was so beautiful, cool and all of that…don’t remember much else.

Audition/producers: “The Middle” @ G. Charles Wright Casting.  I felt good about this character as a tennis coach.  I got some redirection in the room, which is sometimes a good sign.

Audition/tape: “Real Husbands of Hollywood” @ Kim Coleman Casting.  This was fun.  I don’t usually get called in for these projects and I don’t think I had met Kim before, but I’m glad I did.

Audition: “Hart of Dixie” @ Molly Lopota Casting.  Ha!  I had fun doing a French accent for the chef of a character…I’m not sure how much fun the casting director had though…
