TNOTLD: One

Like kids in extended recess time, the cast laughed heartily as we read through the script for TNOTLD last evening.

It's a nice group of actors; a talented bunch. Many familiar faces in the crowd; old friends like Joe Mathers, Alex Pappas, Erin Jerozal and Aaron Zook. Ben Fine is once again my partner in crime (Sir Andrew) and he picked up right where he left off in the staged reading...by immediately making me laugh. Ben is one of a kind.

After reading through the script, we were introduced to fight choreographer Carrie Brewer (New Mom...Congrats!) who showed us some basic fight moves. It turned out to be a lot of fun, even if it felt like an oven in the rehearsal room.

I'm back at rehearsal tomorrow where the real fun begins.

TNOTLD Rehearsals Begin Tonight

I have enjoyed my rest after Pioneer, but it's always nice to go back to work.

With TNOTLD opening on October 25th, I'll be in rehearsals a lot, which is great for me. It'll keep me busy.

I have been submitting for a lot of television stuff this week. I was submitted for a Bette Midler music video, but have not heard if I'm going to be used or not.

I will be doing a voice over gig for the web series THE FANTASTIC TWO in a few weeks. I'll be like KITT from Knight Rider, so that should be easy, fun work.

Another Picture from SERVANT

Another picture from SERVANT.

I was messing around with it, trying to make it look cooler.


Pictures from PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLD

Here are some pictures from the 2001 production THE PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, where I played the title character, Christy Mahon.

I just had these pictures lying around and even though I didn't think much of myself in the role of Christy, I will always remember working with the incredible Caren Pauling, who was right on the money as the play's heroine, Pegeen Mike. Aside from Caren's great work as an actress, she was also a very calming influence on me.

Thanks, Caren!

"AMERICAN ACTOR"

Get a load of this...

“American Actor”
Begins Taping in Philadelphia

This American Idol-like production, as this program for Actors has been called, gives local actors a chance to display their talent to three of the top Hollywood agencies in the industry.

Actors in the Philadelphia area will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to display all of their stage and screen acting skills in hopes of being named the winner of American Actor: Philadelphia.

The stakes are high because the winner is guaranteed a slot on the network premiere of “American Actor.”

“American Actor” will be the first fully interactive internet reality show where audiences watching at home not only vote on a winner but actually decide on the plot and characters for the actors!

Because of this, the “American Actor” audition process will be unique - nothing has ever been like this before.

Michael Shoeman, creator and producer of “American Actor,” shares with StageMagazineOnline.com members how the auditions and show will progress in finding the one winner on “American Actor: Philadelphia.”

"SECRETARY" and Other Films News

The screening of SECRETARY at the FunFest Film Festival went very well last evening. People seemed to enjoy it. They laughed in all the right places. The film has been submitted to a number of other festivals, but no word on acceptance in any of them as of yet.

I received copies of TROUBLE and the 24/7 FITNESS SPEC. COMMERCIAL on DVD yesterday.

I was happy with how TROUBLE came out. As far as my performance, I think it's the most relaxed I have ever looked on screen, whereas with the 24/7 FITNESS commercial where I look ill at ease and very uncomfortable.

Nobody's perfect, I guess.

I wish to thank directors Dan Fishman and Peter Bossio for their professionalism.

A Plug for Larry Lesher's New Play

Larry Lesher is taking a break from directing and will soon be appearing in a fun stage parody of 1930's gangster films called SAY YOUR PRAYERS, MUG!

It looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

Been Away

I haven't posted anything in a while. Haven't had anything new to report, plus I was in the process of moving and looking for a "job job."

Kyle Pierson and I are going to meet in the next few days to discuss the website. He's planning on teaching me how to make updates and additions to the website myself. He's working two jobs now, so he doesn't need the strain.

There are new reviews on the website from the Pioneer Playhouse season. I should have plenty of pictures on the site very soon as well.

I heard from Dan Fishman about the short TROUBLE. It is complete and he'll be sending it my way. Dan seemed very pleased with how the short came out and my performance.

My brother is getting married this weekend, so I likely won't have much else to report this week.

Next week...more to come. I promise.
