PIEDMONT FEDERAL BANK out of High Point / Winston Salem is auditioning me at C&J's Monday for a TV and Web spot. Nice! "Hear me o' universe, that I may book this gig?" "Momma needs new shoes!"
Watched LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS on Pay-Per-View tonight and it was what I had expected...nothing earth shattering but good as expected performances by Jake Gyllenhaal and wow...Anne Hathaway...did I say wow? Ms. Hathaway is one of my favorites anyway but I really enjoyed her character choices...as well as her endowments. Edward Zwick directed and presents a well written story as he has done in the past with the likes of BLOOD DIAMOND, THE LAST SAMURAI, COURAGE UNDER FIRE, ABOUT LAST NIGHT and going back to thirtysomething on TV. Hank Azaria and Oliver Platt contribute nicely in this romantic-dram-edy. Filmed in Pittsburgh, PA.
Saw the new THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU last night at the theatre. Great movie! The story was taken form a short story by Phillip K. Dick, another in the likes of Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly. It was well done and the humor is what made it for me. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt were quite believable as the couple who is not to be together due to the "plan" by the "chairman". Fast paced and always has you guessing what is around the next corner or should I say...through the next door. Supporting cast was just as good especially John Slattery, Terrence Stamp, and Anthony Mackie.
Originally saw MEMENTO (2000) at the theatre when it came out in 2001 and was blown away. Bought the movie and watched it several more times, which I normally do not do, changing my opinion each time of what was really happening, or so I thought. Last night watched again and even though this Christopher Nolan film is 11 years old...IT PLAYS SO WELL! What a great film! Guy Pearce does an outstanding job of leading us through his short term memory adventure. Nolan's use of color and then black / white sequences helps define what is really going on in this film. Others in the film such as Joe Pantoliano and Carrie-Ann Moss offer wonderful performances. MUST SEE AGAIN!
Watched DATE NIGHT (2010) last night with Tina Fey and Steve Carell. It was fun. I really enjoyed the small roles of Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Mark Ruffalo, and Mila Kunis. They added a nice touch. The overall story was not too far out there and moved along well. Not a must see but enjoyable none the less.
I have been acting for 26 years with experience in Film, Theatre, Television, Commercial, Industrial, and Voice-Overs.
