Well not exactly Hollywood but I have learned I have the opportunity for a part in an independant film being shot in New York.
A few weeks ago when I was in New York I went to a party with a friend. We meet a guy who turned out to be a producer of small indie films. He said I had the look he wanted for a role in one of his films (old, bald grandfather?). I did not take him seriously, I spent more time looking at his companion. I later found out she was the actress, Ali Larter from Heroes. She smiled at me and I thought she ran her hand down mine, but that was probably my imagination.
To my surprise I got a call and was told to go the set in New York. I don’t know much about the part but the movie has something to do with a young girl with a father fixation, or in my case a grandfather fixation. It’s a small role so I may only be in a few scenes. I was told the film is expect to be R rated, and I may have to appear in the nude. Appearing nude in a scene with Ali Larter, well we all have to do are part for art.
I did have some exposure to the film set back when I was a young man in the party scene in NY. I had a brief affair with a actress whose name modest prevents me from saying. Okay you dragged it out of my, Susan Sarandon. I had to break it off, our worlds were too far apart. I hope I didn’t hurt her too much.
I did also make the mistake of giving Shirley McClain my telephone number and it was hard not to answer the phone when she keep calling.
So when I get my Oscar I promise to remember all my old friends. I will try to remember to send you guys my autographed picture, I’ll only charge you half price.
If you could be a fictional character in any movie or TV show who would you pick?
