" I like to think of myself as the Pete Rose of actors. Pete Rose wasn't the most talented athlete, but he made up for it with hustle. I sold suits, insurance, drew caricatures at the mall, sold women's shoes, stumbled through a million things and ended up on a movie set because someone said, 'You really ought to give acting a shot.' The only failure I know is never making the attempt." - George Clooney
Had a great audition and am looking forward to two more.
Oh, yeah, plus my birthday is coming up!
"I'm so happy when I'm working." - Dakota Johnson
The Actors Studio was a no, but it's alright. I've got two more auditions coming up!
"Acting is tough some times. It can be a complicated case. A lot of ins, a lot of outs, a lot of what-have-yous, a lot of strands to keep in your head, man. But, you know, you manage." - Jeff Bridges
Got to audition for The Actors Studio plus auditioned for a film this week. Looking forward to seeing what happens!
"I have little weird things that aren't really specific but are just kind of odd. I write my 5's backwards, and I don't know if anyone would even care, at all." - Christian Serratos
I had an awesome audition and am getting ready for another one. Time to get back to working on my lines!
"I always have feelings for theater. I want it to be recognized more." - Ji-Tae Yu
Between audition prep and side jobs, this week has been exhausting! Great things coming very soon, so it's all good!
"I always feel like when I work with people, I work with everybody - from the person that's working the camera to the person that's running the water to the person that's putting the clothes on me, the person that's combing my hair, my makeup, the person that's like, 'You gotta sign these papers.' I try to hang out with everybody." - Tiffany Haddish
I'm getting ready to start shooting videos every week for the Tycoon app! I'm thinking one of the videos every week will be my blog from now on (my weekly blog would become a vlog). Thinking the rest of the videos should be scenes I shoot with talented friends. Can't wait to start!
"Commit to what you love - that's important. Believe in yourself and try as much as possible to do everything you do from a place of love. Not labor, but love" - Michael Mando
