ARGYLE Update

I received an update on ARGYLE from director Matt Porter as well today. He and his crew are finalizing their cut, and beginning to work on the score. Although they considered expanding the project to a feature, they have decided to focus on the project as a pilot and finish it with that in mind.

SOMETHING TO BELIEVE Update

I received an update today from director Terence Nance about the SOMETHING TO BELIEVE music video.

Terence will have a finished cut of the video on Monday, June 7th and a final color corrected version the folllowing Monday, June 14th.

All Things Random Update

I THINK YOU MAY BE MY SOULMATE has been shelved for the time being, as the writers and director Dan Kowalski feel that the script isn't ready as of yet. Hopefully, that will come together in the fall.

Instead, a former project, previously shelved, is now being re-visited...GREG'S GUARDIAN ANGEL. It was originally going to be done about 2 years ago, but was shelved, I believe, to focus instead on the OVERCROWDED pilot. Now, it's back and it's in the early stages of pre-production, with very tentative shooting dates of June 26th and 27th.

Greg Vorob will star as an everyday, office guy who is visited by a guardian angel, who tries to help Greg stay on the right path. I will appear in two short scenes as Greg's boss.

More details will follow.

Here's the cast of GREG'S GUARDIAN ANGEL

Greg: GREG VOROB
Angel: ELMER SANTOS
Boss: TIMOTHY J. COX
Longshaft: JON CREFELD
Monica: MOLLY MONTGOMERY
Co-Worker: DAN CONRAD

Written & Produced by Dan Conrad
Executive Producers: Dan Kowalski, Greg Vorob
Directed by Dan Kowalski

RESCUE ME

I traveled out to Port Washington, NY in Long Island yesterday to work as a stand-in for actor Mike Lombardi on RESCUE ME yesterday. I'd done stand-in one other time in the past, on another episode of RESCUE ME as a matter of fact. I had a fun time then and I enjoyed myself this time around. I got a chance to meet some members of the crew and see how they work and interact with one another, which was educational and very funny, as the entire company is a fun bunch. I also got a chance to see the entire cast in action, including Denis Leary and it was nice to see the comraderie among the cast. They laugh, joke and constantly poke fun at each other. It's the way a set should be, relaxed and fun.

As it turns out, we were shooting part of the final episode of the entire series. As someone who watches RESCUE ME, I'll be sad to see it go, but after 7 years, it had one hell of a run.

Working on RESCUE ME Tomorrow

I'm still waiting on the details, but I'm slated to head out to Long Island to work on RESCUE ME tomorrow as an attendee at a funeral.

2nd Day of THE WATCHERS

It was a fun day on THE WATCHERS yesterday. Jeff acquired a great office space for two key scenes in the film, one with myself as Dr. Orwell and with actor Darrin Biss.

Both scenes went very well and even though it was a long day, things moved along at a solid pace.

Aside from a few small items that Jeff and Sy need to cover, otherwise, principal photography on THE WATCHERS is completed. Now comes the fun part of putting it all together.

A number of productions stills and photos were taken over my two days on set. Hopefully, they will made available for viewing soon.

STEWART FAMILY FUNERAL - Not To Be

Due to a miscommunication as far as scheduling is concerned, I will not be participating in THE STEWART FAMILY FUNERAL.

I wish the entire cast and crew the best on what I'm sure is going to be a fantastic film.

THE WATCHERS

Today's early evening shoot for THE WATCHERS was a fun one. It was great to work with Jeff Moffitt again and I am quite impressed with 23 year old director Sy Cody White. He's a director who knows what he wants and goes after it.

Back in NJ tomorrow afternoon.

Dan Kowalski Spec Commercials

Check out the Spike TV Spec commercial with director Dan Kowalski that I worked on a few weeks ago. Pretty funny stuff!




All of the commercials are available on Dan's website and they all look great.

RUN FOR YOUR WIFE

Things continue to move smoothly as far as lines for RUN FOR YOUR WIFE are concerned. I'm about 15 pages in to Act II and feel very positive about the progress I've made so far over the last couple of weeks.

Excitment is already brewing about the show. Director Larry Lesher and I cannot hesitate to discuss the show whenever we get together.

Best of luck to Chris Kateff, who will be heading to Danville in a week or so for the start of the season.

STEWART FAMILY FUNERAL

I might as move to Jersey!

THE STEWART FAMILY FUNERAL will also be filmed in the Garden State, specifically, Lake Owassa, NJ, which I have also never heard of.

I should be an expert in NJ by the end of this summer.

Back at rehearsal for the film on Monday night.

I Am God!

Well, I'll be playing him at least.

I have been tapped to play the almighty in the upcoming sequel to All Things Randoms' MARTY AND DOUG'S NEW RELIGION.

Stay tuned for more updates on this in the coming months.

THE WATCHERS Shoot This Weekend

I will be heading out to Hoboken, NJ to shoot my first scene for THE WATCHERS tomorrow night. We may film somewhere on Washington Street.

On Sunday, I will be heading out to Oaklen, NJ for my second day of shooting. I've never been to Oaklen, nor have I ever heard of the place, but I have no complaints as far as traveling is concerned. We're starting late on both days, at like 6 or 7PM and may go long, but that's fine with me.

Looking forward to it.

Cast As A Psychiatrist in THE WATCHERS

I have been offered a role in THE WATCHERS (See trailer below).

Jeff Moffitt (SOCKS AND CAKES) has asked me to play the role of a psychiatrist named Dr. Orwell who is visited by the main character John Porter (played by Jeff) who is convinced that is constantly being watched. My Dr. Orwell thinks John is paranoid and doesn't take him seriously, but things don't end too well for the good doctor.

I'm excited to be a part of this project.

As of now, the scene will be shot on Sunday, May 16th.

RUN FOR YOUR WIFE Reading

Last nights' cast meeting and reading of RUN FOR YOUR WIFE went very well. Man, that shows flies. We breezed through it in about two hours and when we get into rehearsals, it will go even faster.

Once again, I will be playing the straight man, which is fine with me. John is a fun character to play...a very ordinary guy with a very extraordinary situation.

RUN FOR YOUR WIFE Cast Meeting/Reading Tonight

Tonight's meeting with the cast of RUN FOR YOUR WIFE should be a lot of fun.

Good news! Act One of the play is completely memorized and Larry was gracious enough to run lines with me yesterday afternoon and aside from some slight paraphrasing, everything came out word perfect.

THE WATCHERS

My SOCKS AND CAKES co-star Jeff Moffitt is in the early stages of planning of a new project called THE WATCHERS (From Hocus Pocus Productions), about a man (played by Jeff) who is being watched. His day starts out like any other day for him, but that all changes and he starts to sense that he's being watched. His day becomes a roller coaster ride, leading him to different locations in the city and eventually a surprise dramatic ending.

Here's the trailer, which I think is kinda cool. Has a Hitchcock feel to it.



Jeff mentioned that he may be interested in using me in a role in this project.

Stay tuned.

STEWART FAMILY FUNERAL Last Night

It was nice to meet director Julian Gorski and the cast of THE STEWART FAMILY FUNERAL last night to read the script a few times and discuss the story and characters. We even jumped right in and put a few scenes on their feet.

Here is the Cast of THE STEWART FAMILY FUNERAL

MICHAEL STEWART - Jason Cicci
KATHY STEWART - Stephanie Little
JAMES STEWART - Timothy J. Cox
JON STEWART - Adam Feingold

Time to get off book for this one now.

RUN FOR YOUR WIFE Lines

Lines continue to go very well for RFYW. I almost have all of Act One down, which is good. I've drilling lines for about an hour a day and so far, things seem to be sticking.

Looking forward to getting together with director Larry Lesher and the cast tomorrow night. Larry is graciously hosting a reading of the play at his apartment. Should be fun.

RUN FOR YOUR WIFE Lines

Lines are coming along very nicely so far for RFYW. I'm a little more than halfway through Act One, so with plenty of time, I should be in a good place by the time we arrive in Danville.

First STEWART FAMILY FUNERAL Rehearsal Tomorrow Night

I'm looking forward to meeting the cast of STEWART FAMILY FUNERAL tomorrow night for the first of at least two rehearsals prior to getting in front of the camera.

NOCTURNE Update

Heard from NOCTURNE's Jayson White today about the progress of the film and Jayson that he and his editor have finished most of the editing and should be done touching things up by Friday.

I have asked to receive an MP3 version of the final version, so hopefully I'll be able to post it on here and on my website.
