My 90 Seconds of Fame

 

Yesterday was my professional acting debut. Well sort of. I was on camera and said lines and was paid and it will all be on TV. They had the bright camera lights and said “Action” and “Cut” a lot and took many takes. So I am going with that.

 

Basically my buddy Adam needed a male in his early 30s with brown hair, who had a flexible schedule on Monday afternoon for a re-enactment of a real life situation for The Maury Povich Show (Adam works there). So Maury’s standards for actors apparently is low and I got the part. I played a professional photographer who was accused of being a peeping tom. The whole shoot took about 2.5 hours and the re-enactment when it airs on Maury will be about a minute and half. I got paid and also got a free dinner out of it all, not too shabby. Plus I got to mock Adam to the amusement of his co-workers.

 

Lord knows this blog will have the date and time of the airing of the program.

Ghetto Superstar

 

Last night was rock climbing and triathlon buddy Adam’s 30th birthday. For some reason he decided to travel to Hoboken to a dive bar to celebrate his birthday. (He lives around the block from me on 87th Street). Well we traveled to the Garden State apparently to take advantage of the fact that you can smoke in bars in Hoboken and you can’t in New York City. Personally after several drinks, a cigarette myself and dancing with Tom and Linda to some Wyclef Jean and Mya, I think that the smoking ban in New York City is a good thing.

 

I met Adam’s college, the casting director for The Maury Povich Show and they are going to have me do an acting stint on the show. I play a pervert who is a peeping tom talking photos of 17 year olds changing. This outta be good. We tape on Monday, so stay tuned-literally.
