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.

Law Abiding Citizen

I’m standing inside Carmen’s, a famous Italian deli lamenting about not being called to the movie set of Law Abiding Citizen starring Jamie Foxx. Both the full length movie and my world class hoagie have just wrapped.
I catch glimpses of a polished man retracing his footsteps outside the deli. Carrying a brown bag, the man keeps stopping by the driver’s side of my car, which is parked closest to the store in the lot. Checking on the peculiar repetitive motion, I venture outside the deli and wind up facing a rolling camera and television's Big Daddy alongside my car.
A film crew is in the middle of taping an upcoming episode for Big Daddy's House which airs on the Food Network. They reset the scene for a take of the brisk business inside the deli. I wind up an extra on the set. The production company, Scriggs LLC, never knew another actor was among them. Sometimes when a law abiding citizen minds his own business, the camera finds a hungry actor like a Foxx in a hen house.
