:icon-adam-: :iconiizzoe: :iconscorgoro: :iconwolfprime:
The acting bug strikes again... here's the info and my story:

Central Casting will be holding an open call July 19 from 4pm- 9pm at the Crystal City Sports Pub at 529 S. 23rd Street, Arlington, VA 22202.  We will be looking for people to fill many background roles, stand-ins and photo doubles for a few different productions. In July and August, we will be casting for "Flags of Our Fathers" (Clint Eastwood/ Steven Spielberg), "The Sentinel" (Michael Douglas/ Kim Basinger/ Keifer Sutherland) and "Failure to Launch" (Matthew McConaughey/ Sarah Jessica Parker).

Soooo... at the last minute...  having forgot all about it occuring...  after work yesterday, I decide to make my way to this open call aka cattle call... if you have ever auditioned before, open calls like this are like cattle calls... tons of people herded in lines, in the elements and wanting to be mooooo-vie stars...  I've only been to one other open call before in my life and that was a couple of weeks back for an upcoming M. Night Shymalan film titled "Lady In The Water" starring Paul Giamatti...  (I don't think I got it due to my availability for their shooting schedule in the philly area)...  so, anyways I've been fortunate in my past acting gigs to not have to deal with this.

I arrive to the area that the casting is occuring and the line is about 2 blocks long...  I begin to re-think getting in the herd but then my mind says "Spielberg" and "Eastwood" and then "Dude, park the fuckin' car."  I drive about three blocks away and find a free parking space and walk back.  As I walk into the line that is now 3 blocks long, a capital H-O-T, hot, hot model arrives to the line before me and then behind me arrives a stage mom with her two young daughters and then several people arrive after them... UGH!

As I stand in line, like any other guy would... I'm checkin' out the blond highlighted brownish haired, large chested (wearing a small top to accent her artificial beauties) model before me who as the line slowly moves forward tries to walk sexy with a switch (but has no ass)...  she looks like a chick out of maxim/stuff/fhm/playboy... she's hot... and you gotta admire beauty... but man, you had to see the faces of all the men around whose tongues were salivating and whose eyes were glued to her every movement...

my fellow man, I glanced... but dudes - show some restraint and respect...

so now, the casting helpers come by and give us these info sheets we have to fill out... they ask the usual (contact info, skills, availability, etc etcetera)... but I have don't have a pen!!!...  and also by the way, I don't have my wallet on me (more on how this comes into play later - in my morning rush, I left home without it...)

So, penless I ask the hot model in front of me but the words go unheard... I don't know if she is ignoring me or if she don't speak-a-the-english...  so waiting and without a pen, I see that she is not filling hers out as well and might be absent of a pen... oh and by the way, besides my attempt at slight conversation with her, the whole time before that and even now at this moment, she hasn't said a word to anyone and I'm not even trying to hit on her - I just wanted to make small talk!...

10 or 15 minutes pass and the casting helper comes by again with a board and pen dangling from it... I ask the guy for the board and then moments after he gives the board to me - she speaks and is asking for the board!  so as any well-mannered gentleman should do, I let her use the board first because she's a female and the fact that she is ahead of me...  she then gives me a faint "thank you" and then "are you sure" and gleams a slight smile...  as I wait, I catch that her name is Nicole but her expressions still scream un-talkative...  I'm assuming that tons of men seem to always hit on her and just isn't in the mood for speaking with any man...

later, she finishes and returns the board to me... then at that moment, it starts to rain... oh happy happy joy joy (sarcastically)... the slight sprinkle of rain lifts after five minutes and I work on the sheet.  I finish and pass the board back to the next needy aspiring actor... for the next 45/50 minutes, its waiting and waiting... I try to make eye contact with the model to make conversation but she doesn't look like she came to have any conversation with anybody... I dial friends but there not home and my wife is too busy to talk while at the grocery store... sooo, boring.....

later, I finally arrive inside the restaurant/pub, where we are led to the second floor and are now being asked if we brought a picture/headshot of if we need them done... I get into the photo taking line since this was all on a whim...  as I wait, I notice that we have to pay for this picture... AAGGGH!!!  if you remember earlier, I didn't have my wallet... as I arrive to the photographer, I explain that I didn't have my wallet on me and she gives me a blank look and then works on the lady behind me...  as the thoughts of despair and having spent all that time in line start to set, the other photographer asks me if I'm needing my picture taken, I tell her yes, tell her I don't have the cash on me and give her the patented smile and puppy dog eyes... she then grabs me, hands me the numbered sign, whispers "keep this between you and me", clicks the pic and then tells me to go to the next line for the interview...  sooo, THANK YOU!!! to whoever you are...  the interview line lasts all about a couple of minutes and then I'm finally up... the interviewer confirms with me everything on my info sheet and then I am done.

Moral of the story - come prepared for the elements, bring a book or some mp3 player, take light snacks, bring headshots, YOUR WALLET, and most importantly - a smile and your charm!!!

Hey er'body,
As by the subject to this journal...  I got some thangs I want to talk about... first...

Sin City - I caught Sin City a couple of weekends ago and I'm sure you've heard everyone's thoughts by now... so here's mine... I loved it... it rocked... I loved Mickey Rourke's Marv's portrayal but all the other characters were done extremely well by the whole cast...  as a writer adapting my work for the screen, it gives me hope that I don't have to work to hard and that film can fully translate my work...  fingers crossed... anyway... my top 5 super hero comic live action films are now: (1) Sin City (2) Batman (3) Spider-man (1&2) (4) X-men (1&2) (5) Superman (1-4)...  ugh... looking at this list now... I'm also thinking how Hellboy, Blade (1-3), Punisher, Elektra, Daredevil, and Hulk all fit...  I know a lot of people hate some of these films but as a long time comics fan I enjoyed just seeing these characters on the screen... and dammit it's my list...  anyway, on to other things but Sin City is now my favorite joint!...  god, I loved Sin City... I went out and bought all the new graphic novel trades vol 1-5 to read and am now on That Yellow Bastard Vol 4...  I picked up vol. 6 - Booze, Broads & Bullets today from Borders at lunch... can't find vol. 7 - Hell & Back anywhere...  help!!!

G.I. Joe Da' Movie - During a lunch break awhile back, my homie, scorgoro (scorgoro.deviantart.com/) aka Kermit Santos and I came up with our picks for a G.I. Joe live action film...  I was a big fan of G.I. Joe as a kid - loved the marvel comics run (the first run of comics I ever read religiously) and the cartoon.... and Kermit is the biggest G.I. Joe fan I've met in my entire life... so here is our list:  (1) Duke - Kurt Russell (www.imdb.com/name/nm0000621/) (Kermit's pick... if you've seen Soldier, he had the hair cut), (2) Snake Eyes - Matt Damon (www.imdb.com/name/nm0000354/) (my pick... yo, have you seen Bourne Identity... I think he could pull it off), (3) Storm Shadow - Will Yun Lee (www.imdb.com/name/nm0498449/) (Kerm's pick - see Elektra, nuff'said), (4) Cobra Commander - Gary Oldman (www.imdb.com/name/nm0000198/) (K's pick... dude has a sinister voice and persona), (5) Baroness - Catherine Zeta Jones (www.imdb.com/name/nm0001876/) (my pick... she's lovely and could possibly be a bitch... I love this pick), (6) Destro - Vin Diesel (www.imdb.com/name/nm0004874/) (my pick... I know he's young but he could rock it), (7) Scarlett - Jennifer Garner (www.imdb.com/name/nm0004950/) (K's pick and I agree... see Alias), (8) Shipwreck - Johnny Knoxville (www.imdb.com/name/nm0424216/) (K's pick... comic relief)... other picks but not agreed include either Michael Clarke Duncan or Ving Rhames as Roadblock... Your thoughts?

San Antonio - aahh, vacation is good... fiesta was great... I'll be posting choice pics here or you can catch them all at my fansite (groups.msn.com/patrickstrange)...  my wife & I stayed at the Emily Morgan Hotel, next door to the Alamo... we caught all the opening ceremonies and partied at all the celebrations... I'm still recovering...

Well, that's all for now... back to the salt mines...
P
So tired.... I'll write more later....
I can't believe its already here but I'm off on to vacation to San Antonio, Texas tomorrow!  Some rest and relaxation has been sorely needed... and to be in San Antonio for Fiesta which is Texas' Mardi Gras and lasts for ten days - should be a blast!... hell, the term fiesta came from this event!  anyway, when I return I'll have loads of pics... so.... until then... stay creative and holla atcha ya boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow... I'm really diggin' this deviantART thing...  I'm getting a lot of love on my work from all over the world... this is great...  gotta love the internet...  thanks to all who sent e-mails, posted comments, set up watch and faved some of my pieces thus far...  love y'all!

P aka The Golden Child
