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.

Fleshing Out The Lovely Bones

A scene from The Lovely Bones.
I considered it a long shot at best making the final cut as an extra in the just released movie The Lovely Bones. I just did not know how much of a long shot it was until I saw the scene play out in this superb drama.

Supplying less than meaningful atmospheric filler as a diner patron, my prophetic long shot arrives 6:34 seconds into the film after the screen fades to white with a voice over by Susie Salmon’s murdered character. This pictured establishing scene in a shopping mall lasts four seconds but is inconsequential to the plot and leaves me unrecognizable to everyone but myself. Being in frame with Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz and Stanley Tucci is fine company to keep but I wish there was more of yours truly to flesh out in The Lovely Bones.

Hi Joe: Hey, I think its great that you got a chance to be in it al all, God bless you for hanging in there. I think I will someday be watching a movie and saying "I know that guy, he used to work for DDD before he became a star!"

Everything was a prop...Even the menus had prices from the 1970's.
I wanted to order the scrapple and eggs with hash browns like nobody's business.
