What an auspicious & delicious way to start my acting gigs in 2016!
Being on set for three days as the FBI Interrogator on the quirky CBS series, Limitless, directed by the Academy Award-winning Peter Werner, living the words of Co-Executive Producer/Writer, Taylor Elmore, (who obviously has so much fun writing that even his stage directions are a blast to read!), and making a treasured new friend in Evgeniya Radilova, reminded me of how I've lived a lot of my career on TV so far, and how I see it continuing in the future.
More thanks than could ever be expressed (for so many things) to the generously spirited Jennifer Rudolph of The Actor's Green Room for suggesting me to Ross Meyerson and Kim Krakauer of Tucker/Meyerson Casting. And a big thank you to Kim Krakauer for giving me such awesome support during the casting session, too. The episode is called "Undercover" and it airs February 16, 2016.
On the teaching front, there are two new 4-week SitCom Courses, sponsored by The Actor's Green Room, that I'm really excited about. I love helping actors with Script Analysis tools, The Rules of Comedy, Cold Reading skills, and much more for their pilot season auditions and bookings. Click here to enroll. Check out the times and details here, along with information on Private Coaching here: YourSitComCoach.com
The trailer for Carlos Amaral Baptista's Written in Stone came out last week. Here's one of my scenes:
The Amy's Horse Live Theatre Podcast that all of us actors and the producer, Christopher Flockton, recorded in each of our own home studios was a blast. It's Episode 9, Ninety Degrees of Separation by David Guaspari. With Abigail Hawk as Sondra and Chris Kipiniak as Zandor, both recording from New York. Joined by Margaret Reed in New Jersey as Nina, and Tim Hopper in Chicago as Roy.
I can't wait to share the fruits of my directorial debut with everyone. It's looking really good in post-production. That's for my next blog post.........
A Sweet '16 to you and yours!
