As none of you know, I have a very talented and kind manager who discovered me at a local play. He also manages Hilary Swank (of whom I'm not the biggest fan, but she's richer than God!). So, every so often (3 weeks or so) he sends me a script in which I act out one character, and send the tape to him, and he sends it to the casting directors of whatever the project happens to be. So a couple weeks ago, the casting directors wrote back telling me that they were "cracking up" at the performance, and they wanted me to come down to Disney Studios (which also owns ABC, where the show would air if it got picked up). The drive down there (Burbank) was about 3 hours, and there was almost no traffic. I hung out for about half an hour at a Boston Market across the street from where I was having lunch with him (Bob's Big Boy, LOL!). He got there, and ran over the lines while waiting for a seat. The burgers were delicious; I haven't eaten at a Big Boy in years. So, about another half hour later, I drove down to Disney Studios (which was like RIGHT there), told the security guard the part I was to audition for, and got in. The audition was in the old animation building, which is VERY cool. I was in a room of maybe 10 while waiting for the audition, which took an hour for them to call me. Very awkward, because everyone is dead silent. It seems to be a rather morbid and cutthroat business. When I finally got called in by a very friendly young lady, I found myself in front of six people. One taking notes on my performance, one filming me, two feeding me line (also casting directors), and two executive producers. Guess who was sitting there right in front of me making small talk before the performance: Shaun Freakin' Cassidy, B List Heartthrob of the 80s! He was the nicest guy, and we talked about my city and the performance and W.C. Fields. I performed, they loved it and said so through laughter and praise. It couldn't have been a better experience. The email back said they were no longer considering me for the part I initially tried out for, and were now interested in me for another part in the same show. And that is not a work of fiction. EDIT: My manager's name is Ken Jacobson, in case anyone is wondering.
