I have to confess that while originally my plan was to mirror here my MySpace blogs, I’ve been extremely lax doing so (hence, you really should keep up at my MySpace blog/s, and/or subscribe thereto).
Mostly due to airings and such, I have made updates to my various on-set report pages, including but not limited to the Pedigree Super Bowl spot progress and airing/s,
the repeat of my fourth My Name is Earl gig episode, the CSI episode, the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland feature, the episode of The Office, and the long slow wait and positing whether the final episodes of Eli Stone even air, meaning my episode Tailspin may only be viewable if the second season is released on DVD.
On MySpace I came across a Chayanne fan who ironically wasn’t previously aware I had worked on his music video Yo Teamo: I ended up updating that report as the YouTube video of the spot had been removed and I had to re-find it to embed it on the report page.

A friendly reminder for my family, friends (and regular readers/subscribers of my blog)…
Upcoming TV appearance dates:
January 29th:
air-date for CSI episode Disarmed and Dangerous on which I worked, playing a resident of a halfway house; actually if I’m visible in the exterior shots as well, I could sort of seem to be teleporting all over the place. The episode air date could be January 29th, so keep an eye out for the episode title in local listings.
February 1st: during the Superbowl my national commercial Crazy Pets for Pedigree Dog Food is set to debut. Arriving to deliver mail to Mrs. Lawrence, in the spot I play Postal Carrier Jeff Badger [bg], pursued off the property by the household pet Bruno. Included at the end of the commercial, I presume, should be the URL to a tie-in website at which Pedigree is encouraging pet adoption. At that website will be video in which different people from within the spot are interviewed (in character), including but not limited to, yours truly.
(btw, a few online news articles indicate that my segment in the spot most definitely will be included [also mentioned here]…!)
February 3rd: probable air date of the Eli Stone episode Tailspin, in which for two scenes I can be seen as Jim Norris. The episode has been elusive what with pre-emptions, and even this date is just a guess.
February 19th (or 26th): one of these could be the probable air-date for The Office episode Lecture Circuit on which I worked, shot early last November.
The IMDB has indicated the current season for The Office is season five, not four, which had I regularly been a viewer to the series, the season number being wrong would have been more apparent.
While I’ve corrected that on its report page, the series’ IMDB entry has been slow with added episode title numbers with respective episode numbers, and TV listings only go so far into the future.
As of this week they seem to be combining occasional repeats of earlier-this-season episodes, possibly due to the recent turn-around at the White House, from one frying pan into another.
So currently it seems early to mid-February for certain for the Lecture Circuit episode.

Interview and Unofficially On Avail

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

Yesterday/Saturday the lovely Tommi called to relay I was booked for an Interview today/Sunday for something called the Untitled Hemmingston Pilot, on which I could find nothing. If selected I would be playing a porno producer, working Tuesday and Wednesday.
I received the hotline number, which indicated to call after 7:30pm, but at least stating the location would be in Century City. The line was updated by 8pm, my calltime was 1pm, at 2000 Avenue of the Stars. I arrived at 12:25pm, and noted it’s the new building that, when I temped for a couple of months on the opposite corner, it was just starting to be built. Now it was very finished as well as clearly very much in use.
I was directed to basecamp where I found the AD (or PA) signing in people. I got my voucher and filled it out. Lunch was called and I was invited to partake; they had an okay fetuccini alfredo.
The two other candidates for the role arrived, and eventually we were brought over “to the producers,” meaning, we were sat on a stone bench of sorts while in the deep shadows of the nearby crew tent, the guy to my left was selected (I sat between the two).
I headed to Westwood and procured my ticket for a late June event at the LA Film Festival, and waiting for a bus home, Tommi called. She had just seen my submitted For The Week availability, in which I declared I was NOT available Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, as I was Unofficially On Avail for a commercial for which I’d had a callback on Friday. I assured Tommi it was okay; with a one in three chance of being selected, I risked what happened anyway. I wasn’t chosen, and I’m paid for going there.
And if the gods continue to smile, I could still be booked for the commercial, working one or more of the three scheduled days. We concurred if I’m not booked on the spot, that I’d notify Booked Talent that I was again available…

Late night update/s

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

The wee hours notwithstanding, I find myself awake due to a deranged woman, screaming for about 45 minutes at the top of her lungs obscenities at her husband and “friends” pretty much directly beneath the window, so I figured I should make a few mentions:

The McDonalds regional wild spot commercial shoot was Friday evening, my full report on the shoot is up here.

At some point in the near future, my Strictly Background director Jason Connell will be converting my two Jimmy Kimmel Live Under-5 gigs, which I have on DVD, into a format (QuickTime and/or Windows Media Player), that I can save here on my site for immediate playback.
For the moment, on my page, I placed a link to the Accountants Gone Crazy video I found on YouTube, in which I can be seen playfully chasing a co-worker, chugging ketchup, and firing staplers into the air like six-shooters.
