Catbrain Film Factory’s first action film was a cop drama called ‘White’, which featured the character Det. Chet Foley, a formerly good officer who had fallen prey to his own cocaine habit. The production involved some terrific dolly shots and lighting, and helped me garner a Best Actor award.
OK, so I’m really scraping the barrel for news. On July 8, 2009 I signed on to portray ‘Angelo’ the gold merchant for Southwest Shakespeare’s production of ‘Comedy of Errors’ at the Mesa Arts Center. It was my third production with that company, and definitely the one where I got the most grief.
This was a nifty little spec commercial for a contest for CareerBuilder.com. Although it didn’t win, I think it deserves to be aired. So here I air it.
In this TV pilot by the Kennedy Bros., I play Craig Lott, the bureau chief of a paranormal investigation unit. Craig is a hardnosed veteran with a bad pudding cup habit. I never did see the footage, but they tell me it was a laugh riot.
WOW, this was a fun production. Aside from carrying a large man in a basket, I also got to push around clunky set pieces, run down a dark hallway in an ill-fitting mask, and dress in drag. And my hat was just spot on.
This was my first audition after signing with my first commercial agent, and it was my first booking.
On a whim, I answered a Craigslist ad for an actor to help with a short film. I showed up at some guy’s house and convinced him I could play Moses as a leader of a strike force of prophets, with a Jackie Mason accent. And so it began.
Well, here is where it started.
