Early morning calls are a reality of the business. Recently I saw the gorgeous 5:30am Sunrise over Dodger Stadium’s Palm Trees… (we parked there and were taken by Van to the Sunset Blvd Echo Park area recreating South Side Chicago Winter time. Next time you watch a freezing November Scene don’t forget it is probably 80 degree in Los Angeles and everyone is sweating under those layers of clothes.

This show booked me as a Chicago Cabbie with attitude to spare. I got to pull up in front of a Pawn Shop for the Handsome Straight Male TV Lead (he’s in his early 40s and a former Movie Star, this is his 2nd attempt at a Series). He is a pleasure all day and either has something in his eye or cannot stop flirting and winking at the Extras (including me…so he is comfortable with himself). A group of teenage boys across the street keep yelling lines from his iconic 1988 High School Murder Movie Classic. He waves and they scream louder. I want to yell “Back off boys he’s mine” but I wisely decide to keep my big mouth closed instead. What we do for Art…

This season I’ve worked on two TV Shows that were cancelled before my episodes aired. Was it something I said? This show got axed the week after I shot it. So my Cabbie scene won’t see the light of broadcast. Waaah. At least I got a wink out of it.
