Yesterday I had a meeting with two of my three commercial agents about my new pictures.  The meeting went really well, I just hope I can translate their instructions and get the pictures that they need.  I do not enjoy shooting headshots. At all; I pretty much hate the whole process of it.  It’s necessary though.

Callback: “Citibank” @ Ross Lacy Casting.  I think I did a really good job in the room. I just have to keep doing that and the bookings will come eventually.

Audition: “Citibank” @ Ross Lacy Casting.  The usual stuff.  I had fun and I think I’m really right for it.

Callback: “Toyota” @ Francene Selkirk Casting.  I think I did my job well. That’s about all I can do.

Audition: “ABC Talent Showcase” @ ABC/Disney/Jessie Disla Casting Director – I try to get in these showcases that the different networks sponsor every year.  For this one I dropped off my photo & resume about two weeks ago and I got a call for an audition last week, so here I am.

The read went well; I did everything I wanted to do in the room.  It was a lot of fun.  Isn’t that what it’s supposed to be?  Anyway, on the way out, the casting director, spoke to me.  I knew I had met her before, but I couldn’t remember her name. 

She refreshed my memory.

It was Jessie Disla.  She was an assistant at Warner Bros. TV back when they staffed an entire casting department.  Those were the days!  She remembered when I booked my first TV job, FRIENDS, back in 1999.  She thanked me for coming in and said that “she was really glad to see that I was still pursuing it, the dream”.  That was very nice of her to show support and encouragement of my career.

Audition: “FEMA PSA” @ Francene Selkirk Casting.  This was great fun! I even had a wife and two kids to work with…maybe, one day, that’ll happen in my real life!

I got some interesting news at work this afternoon that, I suspect, will result in a very, very significant reduction in earnings.  Not good.  I really have to make this “acting thing” work.  Like seriously.

Audition: “Skittles/Starburst” @ Cathi Carlton Casting.  Eh, this went okay.  Funny commercial, but I think I was trying too hard.  I got to go in twice and the two actors did it completely different.  I think I did it better the second time.

Audition: “Audi” @ Ross Lacy Casting.  It’s great to be back at this office!  It’s been a while.  I was good in the room today.

Audition/Producers: “Fatal Instinct” @ Jan Glaser/Neely Gurman Casting.

Wow!  This is the first audition I’ve had in 5 weeks and just a handful over the last 3 months.  Hopefully that will change with episodic season starting up over the next several weeks.

I had a great time in the audition room.  I’m not sure what they’re looking for, but hopefully they will consider me for the role and/or other projects in the future.
