Back to the Blog!

One of my new years resolutions is to get back to the blog--so here I am!

This has been a great year for me as an actor and a teacher. I have been doing a play in Los Angeles, "It's Just Sex", that has been extended twice, a lead role on a Disney Web Series, great guest stars on House and Two and a Half Men, and I even got to be a Casting Director on two projects "Children of the Corn" and the Web Series I am on, In2ition. But the professional development that has made me the happiest, has been the chance to help get some of my students some acting work. Two students, Tracey Paleo and Desiree Dundr have worked in the play I am doing "It's Just Sex", Tracey as my under-study (with guaranteed performances) and Desiree in a fun cameo as "Amanda the Hooker". Pete Punito, my long-time student and Studio Monitor, got cast in In2ition in a role that will return if the show gets picked up for a second season.

Wow you have been busy! Hope your key note speech in Iowa went well. Happy New Year to you and may you have much success in 09

Mrs. Fox is an awesome addition to your filmography, Jamie. Very entertaining and you just ooze e-v-i-l. And absolutely loved the power strut across the conference room in your House, MD opening scene. "Is everyone just going to stand around watching...or is someone going to call an ambulance?" Any chance they'll bring your character back?

I suspect that 2009 will be an even bigger banner year! Your students are quite fortunate to have someone so supportive in their corner. If Philip Seymour Hoffman wasn't grabbing up all those character roles, I'd entertain a mid-life career change myself. LOL!
