Well, it has been quite some time since my last blog posting, but I have an update on one of my goals for you.
In October 2010, I achieved Goal #61, by securing a small role in a Hollywood movie. I played the part of a diner at a hotel/bed and breakfast establishment in the hills above Malibu. It wasn’t a speaking part, but it was still enormous fun to hang out on set with the other extras, and meet some of the main actors too. You can see my original blogs about the achievement of the goal here:-
The movie was being filmed under the working title “Storage”, but has recently been released under the title “2nd Take”. You can read about the movie on IMDB here:-
2nd Take – the movie
There is a trailer for the movie which is just over 2 mins long. I am very proud to also make a small appearance in the trailer, although you only see the back of my head at about 1 min 17 secs. Don’t blink or you’ll miss it!
Yes, that’s the back of my head over the leading actor’s shoulder!
As yet I haven’t actually seen the movie, but I am looking forward to doing so very soon, as I have ordered a copy for delivery.
So what next for my flourishing acting career? Well, if Disney ever pull their finger out, and get around to making their “Life For Sale” movie (they bought the rights to the story in November last year – see the previous blog post here), I would love to score a small role in that too. I haven’t heard anything from them at all about progress, so really have no idea what is going on.
I’ll keep you updated…
