Congrats.
Be prepared to be bored, and do the same scene over and over and over ...

I saw them filming 'Sex in The City', the movie, last fall and I saw them do the same scene about 5 times, then I got bored and ducked into NBC studios, came out 20 minutes later and they were still filming them walking down the street in front of Sotheby's...what will probably be a 10 second scene in the movie.

But it beats working. :)

This was merely the tip of the iceburg, a lot of other things have been going my way. For instance, my first story for this site is currently the #3 most popular article, right behind 2 stories about this casting.

...and now after rearranging my whole day around going to get my hair cut and fitted for costumes, they called me at 9:50 last night (because they're on CA time) to let me know they want me Friday. Now I rearrange my whole day tomorrow around this.

They're actually on *our* time, as the casting company is out of Chicago. They're just crazy busy right now and everything is thrown into hyper-drive due to the quickly approaching filming schedule. Expect all calls to come in at all hours.

They left me a message the other night at like eleven...

And I was at the fitting/haircut yesterday for four hours! And I have to go back tomorrow. All in good fun though....

This is gonna be terrific!

Yeah, speaking of which, what's a guy got to do to break through the Public Enemies mortal lock on the Top 10?

Congrats on making it to #2, but I was consistently hitting the top 5 until friggin Obama, and now the Depp Blockade. Cripes.

i was quoted $65 for 8 hours of work and time and a half for every hour after.

so a bit over a hundred bucks for the 12 hour day they're promising.

I'm holding out for $20 million. They'll cave, I just know it.

And yeah, I got the late call to change my wardrobe date to Friday.

So did anyone else beside me secure a speaking role?



Kidding.

Well all is said (or not said) and done, and my account of the whole affair is available here.
