Audition: “UPS” @ Spot Casting.  Quick-fast in and out.  I was so good in the room!

Audition: Pepsi @ TLC/Booth Casting.  I’m never sure how things go at this particular casting office because the session director, Leland, is just so interesting.  Actually, truth be told, I’m never sure how things go regardless of who the session director is.  I felt like I was “acting” a bit too much, but I’ll let the powers that be make that decision.

I arrived back in LA this morning after my 2 ½ week vacation and tonight I’m back on the floor waiting tables…talk about a reality check! 

Shortly after I got to work a fellow employee said that she had a customer that was looking for SAG actors for a web series and gave me his card.  A while later the gentleman approached me, introduced himself, gave me a quick rundown of what he wanted to do and asked if he could call me tomorrow.  Well alrighty then…

Audition: “Truth Be Told” @ Jill Anthony/Gillian O’Neill Casting.  Since I’m still on vacation, this is going to be a self-tape situation.  I’m not at all an expert on the self-tape thing, but I have to get better at it and, in fact, embrace it.    

I was pretty happy with how it came out even though I was super pressed for time…and not really in the head space to audition.  Word came back later that my agency and casting liked what I put together and my choices.

Still traveling. Right now my brother and I are enjoying a 4-hour layover in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Beautiful airport, it’s more like an upscale shopping mall. 

After we finally boarded the plane and took off we…landed again.  At the same airport.

Not sure what happened, as most of the explanation was in a language I couldn’t understand.  We got more fuel and I’m not sure what else and took off again, bound for Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania.

My sister-in-law’s aunt and uncle picked my brother and I up from the airport to drive us to ┼áventoji, a beach-resort town of around 3,000 people.  Obviously, quite different than Hollywood…and just what I’m looking for.

I thought this was funny.  So my brother and I are riding the shuttle bus @ Dulles International Airport, in preparation for our flight to Lithuania, and the driver asked us what airlines? I answered, "Scandinavian Air" and the only other person riding with us, a Caucasion woman, whipped her head around so fast and stared at us that I felt a breeze.

Can’t a few brothas take a European vacation?  We're just going to pick a few mushrooms. Honestly, I don’t think she meant anything by it.  She was probably just really curious.  Funny.

On another note, I received a message from a very talented actor friend that is now a staff writer on a network show.  She asked if I would ever consider coming to Burbank to do a table read for the show she writes on.

Ahh…let me think about that…YEAH!

I’m a little confused as to what the context is, but I’ll figure that out later.  I have no idea when the table read might be, but hopefully I won’t miss it since I won’t be back in LA for another 2 weeks.

Finally, my vacation has officially started…and I didn’t even get all of the way home to Virginia before getting my first appointment…back in Los Angeles.  It was an appointment for a show I’d REALLY love to be cast on, well, that’s just about any show.

The show is SCANDAL.

Oh well, there isn’t much I can do about it, except be thrilled that they have me on their radar.  I will be back!
