Thats pretty cool. How'd you end up getting on the show?
Luck....I was in the very first episode of BB from a mass casting call of at least 200 people and proved to be reliable, professional and available,
so you get call backs. The danger even for background/supporting is that you become to established [recognizable] and you can only work as a driver
or in crowd scenes. I drive mostly now which pays better for the car bump [pay for using your own car]. I bought 4 old junkers so I can rotate cars
and stay busy from episode to episode.
Now that I'm AFTRA/SAG my agent doesn't want me to work background TV but feature films are OK. I'm going to go against her wishes and take anything
that comes my way even working for small independent pilots for deferred payment until the pilot gets picked up; if ever. The movie/TV business is
huge and growing here in NM if our new Gov. doesn't cut back the tax incentives for the production companies.
Ops, did you see "Crazy Heart" ? I worked on that show but my scene was cut. Auditioned for "True Grit" but didn't make it. Damn! There's a few
coming out soon that I worked on "Paul" "Thor" and "Cowboys and Aliens" and "Doc West" was just released in the states on DVD.
