Bad News/Good News

Many things have lined up on the showbiz side of my life again and I’ve been taking some time to focus on that and see if I can make a living (and possibly support a bride and child) from the showbiz. My last two web dev job experiences had been rotten and though I try to keep up with that part of the world and my brain, abortion it seems less and less available to me than showbiz. How nutty is that? Stupid nutty. Only an actor would say that. Hmm.

So the bad news is that it got down to me and one other guy for a great part in a great pilot but I’m trying to think that the good news is that it got down to me and one other guy for a great part in a great pilot.

I’ve always remembered the general feeling of disappointment and frustration in the showbiz world, recipe but I’d forgotten about the specific feeling when one “misses it by this much”.

In other good news: Thursday, 3/21, I’m going to be on the Glee! show program. You can blink and I’ll still be on the screen, but don’t blink for too long. I think. Of course, my “scene” could be cut.

    Only The Dean could get me to watch Glee again. Will watch with baited breath!

    I know I’m a little late, but good luck!

    I actually ended up here after looking you up on the IMDb. Not that I really needed to, I’ve seen most of your movies and even They Came from Outer Space.

    I remember when you used to post to the Usenet newsgroups. When you had the guest spot on E.R. you asked people to contact the show and request to see more of “that guy with the funny eyebrows”. Unfortunately, I guess it didn’t work.

    I actually exchanged a couple emails with you back then. It hardly seems possible that it was 17 years ago.

    The reason I happened to be looking you up today is that my friend saw part of Miracle Beach on TV last night and asked me “Why didn’t you tell me that Nicholas Cage made an ‘I Dream of Genie’ movie?” As soon as he started describing it, I knew exactly what movie he meant, even though he couldn’t remember the title properly. He still swears that it starred a young Nicholas Cage. 🙂
