10:06am:  One of my commercial agent, Alicia, leaves a voicemail early this morning.  The news is that Francene Selkirk’s office for Sprint wants to see a few people for another audition.  So I need to go to the set where they are shooting to audition for the director, producer, ad agency, etc.

When I arrived I find that it’s a different commercial all together.  Six actors showed up and I believe 3 will be cast.  Basically, they were going to have us read, wait around if we wanted and a decision would be made relatively quickly.  Wardrobe will be this afternoon and it’ll shoot tomorrow. 

Callback: “Sprint” @ Francene Selkirk Casting.  I was having a world of trouble executing the text and when I got in the room…I felt myself going down in flames.

After the audition I chatted with one of the production guys that I know from back in New York and then went home.  I just didn’t feel that great about my performance.  Of course, if by chance, I got the job I’d drive back over the hill with a big smile on my face.  If not, NEXT!

So I went home, licked my wounds, and got on with my day. A few hours later, to my big surprise, I got a call from my agent telling me that I have been booked on the spot!   So I drove to my agents office to sign paperwork for it and back to the set for a wardrobe fitting.  Yeah!

I got the news this morning that I’ve been released from the Sprint avail.  Ugh!  I wanted that one…or something, but instead it’s on to the next one.

Audition: “The Blank Theatre Young Playwrights Festival” @ Cara Chute Casting.  For this audition I had to prepare a one-minute monologue.  Ugh!  Not good, monologues, but I really wanted to be a part of this project so I jumped in. 

I was absolutely horrible in the room, I just completely fell apart.  I was so far out of my wheelhouse it wasn’t even funny.  I left feeling quite dejected over my performance. At the same time though, it gave me much appreciation for the trained, stage actor.  Bad, bad bad…

Still no news on Sprint.  They are supposed to have made the choices by the end of the day, but that came and went with no news.  I’ll take that as a good sign.

Callback: “Mercedes” @ Cathi Carlton Casting.  I couldn’t have asked this callback to go any better!  Hopefully, I’ll be placed on avail for this too.

No news, book or released, on the Sprint avail.  Still in the running.

Audition: “Infiniti” @ Ross Lacy Casting.  Quick and simple, in and out.

Callback: “Sprint” @ Francene Selkirk Casting. On avail.  I had no idea this was a callback until I got in the room.  I was definitely quite a bit older than most of the other people I saw there, but I had to put that out of my mind and give them what “I” had in store.  It went great I thought!  They informed us that it will, most likely, book over the weekend and that we should make sure we are very reachable.  Just before I arrived back at home I got word that I had been placed on avail!  YAY!

Audition: “High Level Comic Book Film” @ Tamara Hunter Casting.  I’m think I’m so, incredibly perfect for this role that I just have to book it. Right? The audition went well.  My job is done.  It shoots in a few days so I’ll know something…or nothing really quick.

Audition: “Mercedes” @ Cathi Carlton Casting.  Just another commercial audition that I think I’m perfect for is all…  Call.  Me.  Back.

Audition: “Walmart” @ Sonnenberg Casting.  I had so much fun in the room on this one, it would be great to get a callback on it!

Audition: “Dunkin’ Donuts” @ Good People Casting.  This went well, it was pretty simple, just an interview type situation.  There was one guy that seemed to be really struggling in the interview part, but he might’ve been just being really natural, less “actory” and more “real people” like.

Audition: “Sprint” @ Dan Bell Casting.  Hmm…I had fun in the room with this one, but I think somehow I might have been working too hard…I don’t know.

Tonight I participated in another table read.  This time for writer Chris Innacone at the New York Film Academy.  Chris was a winner of the Hour Long Spec Category of The 2015 Final Draft’s Big Break Screenwriting Contest. Funny enough, I’m not usually able to follow Sci-Fi stuff all that well, but I was totally invested in the piece that Chris wrote.  As an actor, it’s great to get involved with writers at this early stage in their careers.

Audition: “The Untitled Dan Schneider Project” at Bullock/Snow Casting.

I took a private voiceover class today and felt pretty good about how I performed in the booth.
