A freakin’ one-liner on “NIP-TUCK”? Are you kidding me? I spent 3 years on “ER” fer pete’s sake!
Whooooooaaaaaaaaa…………. Slow down there, Big Timer. You haven’t had an audition since October of ’07. That’s right. The beginning of the writer’s strike. SIXTEEN MONTHS since you could call your self anything other than … someone with nothing to do. So git yer lazy arse of the couch, learn yer one stinkin’ line, and get over to the casting office.
So the scene is: An actor who is shooting a scene and is supposed to be dead and Sean comes in and doesn’t know it’s a scene and runs over to help, wrecks the take and I’m like “Whatup, Dude?”
Okay? Got it?
Now being the consummate professional that I am, I can’t just say a line. I have to make it about something, so I come up with an entire bit based on the personality of this guy who is trying to work, and these amateurs get in the way. Cuz, dude, I know this guy!
Soooooooo, I get there and there’s five other guys waiting in front of me, but it moves pretty quick, cuz, let’s face it, IT’S JUST ONE LINE. But, now it’s my turn and I go in, and I do it, and I PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS! I mean… I do my bits, I have attitude, I give the scene an entire life! On top of that, I’M HILARIOUS!!!!
So the casting guy, (who be the way, was in high school when I turned 40) he gives me a polite little laugh to acknowledge all my hard work, and says, “Let’s do it again, but with out all the …you know.”
