On Air

Woo hoo! I'm going to be in the studio with David Lawrence tomorrow night.


Go to his show's website to get all of the info on how you can listen, but basically it's like this:

XM Open Road 171
Sirius Stars 102
or by podcast subscription through his website.
Woo! I predict much fun and silliness. Tune in at 8pm Pacific, yo!

If you don't bring up "Stick It," I'm never speaking to you again.

So did you have a good time or what? ;)

I did not bring up "Stick It!" Do you still love me?

Yes, Ed. Had loads of fun. Time went by WAY too fast.

I'll be going back again and doing specific topics per show later.

Okay, the votes are in. Just sent out this notice to my mailing list.

Hello everyone and happy my-birthday week! ;) This week's Showfax.com column starts out like this:

"Actors Can't Read"

I know. You already don't like this column. Believe me, I don't like having to write it. But having put out four breakdowns last week (yes, four), I've become overwhelmed at how many actors out there either can't read, don't understand what they read, choose not to read, or simply dismiss what they read. Whatever the culprit, the result is the same: frustrated casting directors. And, hey, why would you want to frustrate the people you're hoping to enchant with your talent?

Before I get too deep into the rant, let me say for the record that I absolutely know that there are many casting directors who provide misleading, incorrect, or too little information about projects. I understand that there are times when shoot dates change and some actors ignore date conflicts assuming this could be one of those projects for which not much is set in stone. I also get that directors and producers sometimes cast against type, meaning that the original breakdown may be terribly specific and your wildcard, against-type submission is a surprise winner. None of this contributes to the type of actor illiteracy I'm upset about. I promise.

Read the rest of the column, plus a YOUR TURN about segmenting your efforts as a beginning actor (keeping last week's "Beware the Island" issues in mind) at http://more.showfax.com/columns/avoice !

Have a great week and thanks for the support!

PS--For real, Anna, have you stopped speaking to me? I may cry.
