This past weekend I
drove to Phoenix, Arizona to help a friend get a handle on her personal finance
situation.I was excited for a
couple reasons.I get a chance to
help someone in a situation that seems hopeless to her, but I don’t think that
it is at all.Another reason is
that it was the longest drive that I’ve taken in a really long time.I just love road trips.I used to being able to drive
relatively long distances, but I seem to have lost my edge over the years.Maybe it was from working overnight and
I’m just always a little more tired than most people.
drive was incredible!Plus, I feel
that I made more headway with her than I even expected.I hope she’s able to stay on the
program and make a real lifetime of progress.I told her that next year is going to come anyway, why not
try your best to have a better relationship with your money?
“Geico” @ Ross Lacy Casting.In a word – butta!This
felt really good.
@ Zuckerman/Johnson Casting.This
audition came directly as a result of me dropping off a photo/resume at Fox
Studios.Honestly, I don’t think
it went all that well. I mean, it wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t great
either…but I’ll let them be the judge of that.
Mutant Ninja Turtles” Downtown LA.I had a great time shooting today.It was a small, but fun bit to do.
two of the writers of the screenplay/executive producers, Josh Appelbaum
Nemec, grew up with a friend of mine that I
waited tables with back in New York.I met Josh with my friend around 2000 when we went to a concert at the
Universal amphitheater.Josh and
his partner Andre we're certainly working writers at that point but they have
really moved up the ladder over the years.
didn’t expect to see them on set, but to my great surprise, I did.Of course Josh wouldn’t have remembered
me by hearing my name or seeing my face, but I reminded him of the concert and
he immediately remembered.He took
a photo of us and sent it to my friend, Max, who now lives in Florida.He got a kick out of us being reunited
all these years later.Good, good
UPDATE: APRIL FOOLS!!!I showed up for my afternoon call time
for the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES film, but ended up being released after
dinner without shooting anything because production was losing light and they
knew they wouldn’t get to the scene in time.
well, not much I can do about that.I’m very thankful that one of the highest regarded casting directors in
Hollywood thought of me for the role without auditioning.Plus, I’ll get paid for the day.There is always a chance that I’ll get
rescheduled, but I’m thinking this one might’ve slipped through my
fingers.That said, I’m certainly
