Life takes us many places. It's a box of chocolates and a Hansel and Gretal trail of candy wrappers. I have filmed as an actor in The Happening, Invincible, The Lovely Bones, The Bounty Hunter, The Greek American, Bazookas, Limitless, TV's Its Always Sunny in Philly, Outlaw, New York, The Warrior, The Nail, Game Change, Cold Case, & commercial work includes The Philadelphia Eagles, Septa, Coors, Turbo Tax & Carnival Cruises. Freudian Slips spotlights irony in short story format.

The Price Ain't Right in Hollywood

Day 1
My friend received the telephone call every non union actor dreams of. She went down to our casting agency and signed an official SAG union contract for residual pay everytime the soon to be released Carnival Cruise commercial airs. Knowing I was the first to land in the pile of two tons of candy underneath that six story pinata, I kept my cell phone on hoping to receive my own call about residual pay.
Day 2
Different casting agency calls me. One of my IMDB credits for a film still in production reveals too much of the plot. I was told that it needs to be removed. So while keeping my phone on hoping for more credit for hard work completed, I wind up with no more money and less credit.
Day 3
My role was re-cast in a movie I was to film next month.
....I just love this acting business.

So it's a business or is that busyness?

Hey, at least you got a lot of candy since you were the first in the pile right?
