iPad 2 Giveaway

That got your attention, didn’t it?!? :)

Continuing my “Twilight Zone” theme from Monday (I still can’t believe that was just yesterday) I got a call from my agent in the afternoon saying I was requested for an audition. Luckily, the casting director was okay with me putting it on tape. So Abe and I cancelled our SXSW plans and spent the rest of the afternoon filming/editing the scenes.


This is probably the biggest audition I’ve ever had in my almost 30-year career. With 11 pages of emotional dialogue and crying (all read cold because I needed to be done before today) I am not expecting anything to come of it. But lemme tell y’all, if I get this part, it’d be beyond-my-wildest-dreams huge. I-will-give-a-reader-an-iPad2 huge.

We worked straight through the evening – by 9pm we were starving and had a party to attend at The Highball.



Not only is there karaoke, but bowling!


The party was hosted by Funny or Die, which Abe has contributed a few videos to – one starring me! – and tumblr


Obviously, one of these food pix will be featured on my new Actor’s Diet Tumblr page!


I grabbed one of everything – Mushroom Pate Canape, Blue Cheese n Bacon Puff Pastry, Fried Veggie Egg Roll, Fried Basil Cream Cheese Wonton…


…Pork Satay with Pineapple Salsa and Cheese n Mushroom Quesadilla


Doesn’t it look like pizza? I wound up getting seconds of both of those finger foods.

For dessert – a Peanut Butter Brownie Bite + Oatmeal Cherry Cookie


I went back for one of these guys too – it had been missing from the buffet before


There was a really good DJ…


…but unfortunately we couldn’t stay because I had to get to my Q&A at The Long Center for “Surrogate Valentine


This isn’t our last screening at SXSW (we have one more on Saturday March 19th – 1:30 pm – at The Alamo Ritz)


But it was the last one I’m attending in Austin :(


One more day of SXSW, press, and then we are off to San Francisco for the Closing Night of SFIAAFF!!! There are still some tickets available, so if you’re in the Bay Area make sure to get them now!

    I am joining the chorus wishing the part for which you auditioned—and I did always want an ipad! I am so pleased that you had such a great time in Austin (I think I told you that I spent a great summer there many decades ago, and loved it), and the SXSW sounds awesome. I hope your film got a great reception.
