Hey there, happy 2014! It's that time again, when people make a list of goals that they'd like to accomplish. I love making lists so I thought I'd join in on the fun!
1. Finally make it over to visit George Clooney in Lake Como. Everyone knows that Clooney spends his summers at his villa in Lake Como, Italy (seen left), and I have always wanted to make time to go visit him! I resolve that this summer I will make it happen. Oh yeah, I guess I gotta snag an invite first. Or do I? - hahaha!
2. Resolve my differences with Barbara Walters. I don't want to get into the whole thing right now, but Ms. Walters and I had a sort of a tiff a few years back and needless to say I haven't been invited on The View since. Babs knows what she did, but I'm willing to be the bigger creature here and let bygons be bygons. Oh yeah, but as for my feud with Martha Stewart - (explained here: http://www.applesthemule.com/1/category/martha%20stewart/1.html) consider it still on!
3. Star in a Terrence Malick movie. This may sound like an unreachable goal but it's not actually as hard as you might think. The man went from making one movie every 7.5 years to cranking them out one after another. And I saw "Tree of Life," I know what it takes. If you're reading this Terry, consider this my audition:
Have a wonderful week everyone!
Hey Dudes! How's it going? Hope everyone had a good weekend! I have a cool video to share with you today, it's me auditioning for a role in an upcoming feature film! Most everyone knows that actors have to audition for their roles, but you may not know that sometimes those auditions don't take place in person. Sometimes the people auditioning are in a different city so you have to tape yourself doing the scene and send it to them. I had to tape an audition recently because the producers are out in LA, and I wanted to share it with you all. It's for a film called "Big Sky" and I read for the role of Rosie Mae, a prostitute who falls into a forbidden love affair with a local farmer named Pete. It takes place in the old west and will be shot on location in Montana next summer! How exciting, right? Here's my audition:
Wow, watching that back it seems a little depressing! I didn't get a full copy of the script so I'm not sure what happens in the end but I hope those crazy kids work it out. Maybe they can just move to the next town over or something, there's gotta be a way! If I get the role I'll certainly suggest that and they better listen to me or else! Hahahaha - just kidding! Have a great week everyone!
Hi guys, I know I'm usually pretty positive, but today I have to gripe a little bit. A couple months ago I was up for a job that I really hoped I'd get - to be the face of "Hairvitalize" brand horse shampoo. It's this awesome shampoo that people use to make their horse's mane and tail extra shiny. I use it all the time and get tons of compliments. I had a good feeling when I went to the audition, but then I never heard anything. Well, I was at the Walgreens the other day and as I passed through the shampoo aisle THIS caught my eye:
Um, EXCUSE ME?? I know that in a previous post I said that I have benefited from open minded casting directors who let me audition for roles written for humans, so of course it should go the other way too, but come on! That lady booked the job instead of me? Sure, I'm not a horse but I'm a heck of a lot closer than she is! Oh well, it's a tough profession that I've chosen and there's a lot of rejection. All you can do is pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and photoshop yourself into the ad so you can see what it would look like if you'd have booked it instead of her. And lucky for you all, I did just that! Have a great week!
