An On-Line Journal

Not five minutes after finishing my last journal entry I received a call from my agent telling me that I am on hold for a commercial.

I guess I should have written about this whole thing as it was happening but I was too busy trying to coordinate my shoot for today.

So here's the deal;

Last week I went to an audition for a project called Toy Truck.
When I entered the room they asked that I play with a dump truck like a big kid.
To which I responded, "You mean just pretend the camera isn't rolling?"
Everyone laughed at this.

Yesterday afternoon I got called back to audition again for the same commercial, only this time I was going to be playing the dad and auditioning with a kid.
Like hell if I was going to let the kid steal my thunder, I grabbed the truck and showed him how it's done!

And as I had started mentioning earlier I received a call just now telling me that I am on hold.
For all you lay people out there, this basically means they are VERY seriously considering me.

If I get this, the score will lean to my favour.
