I'm a Union Man

This is my first award season as a member of the Screen Actors Guild. I was surprised to find three DVD's in the mail - Little Miss Sunshine, The Departed and Venus. They are basically trying to get votes for the SAG Awards. Pretty cool since two of the films are still in theaters. So if you give SAG a few thousand dollars a year you get free movies and pay bumps when you fall into a pool, smoke a cigarette, or go to lunch late. I guess it all works out in the end.

Big Stuff (Almost)

This is a teaser post. Things are progressing well with the feature film I am producing...see the link for Hitting the Nuts over there -->

It looks like a few key players are joining the team. When it is all official in the coming weeks I'll tell you all about it. This week has flown by so far and been filled with meetings, etc. Pilot Season is officially afoot. So far only one pilot audition - to host a show on the History Channel. It went well...they laughed a lot. I'm just not sure it was supposed to be funny. For hosting gigs I just try to be myself and hope they are looking for a dry, jaded, sarcastic host with a hint of hidden optimism. It doesn't always work...but you never know.

Check back soon for some HTN updates...

Thanks (Ultimate Poker Challenge)

I've received several e-mails and a few voice-mails from people who enjoyed my commentary on the Ultimate Poker Challenge TV show. (Lots of "new friends" from Canada for some reason - thanks for the encouragement, ey?)

Some have asked if I will be on again. I'm contracted for up to 100 shows in 2007, but not gauarenteed any. They have brought on several other co-hosts and seem to be rotating us in and out. If you are a regular viewer of the show and liked my work feel free to drop the producers a note. (You can find their info at www.passportentertainment.com). Don't bug them if you just know me, but they would want to hear from true fans I'm sure.

I actually haven't seen my episodes yet, though I know they have aired in Canada and Las Vegas. They show is syndicated in many markets - you can find your local listing at www.ultimtepokerchallenge.com.

Nothing Much to Say

The new year is off to a slow start. I auditioned today for a feature film...my first audition of the year. The kids are back in school as of today. Things seem to want to get back to normal, but I have a strange "new year" sluggishness about me. I'm normally quite manic in January...very odd.

I'd love to tell you all more, but I'm a little shy of inspiration these days. Hope to share more soon...
