OK, it seems like I haven’t been blogging for a while… Yeah, I’ve been a bit busy lately. Haven’t written since August when I was in Hawaii. I have a goal to keep up on this thing, I’m going to be throwing up new blogs every Monday. Problem is, sometimes I don’t know exactly what to write about, call it writers block if you want, I just don’t want to write about aimless things. So if your reading this and you have any ideas of what I should write about, let me know. It can help inspire me. Truth is, I love writing and I can use all the help I can get, even if it’s a topic we don’t agree on, I’m down for a good discussion about it all.
So let’s catch up on what’s been going on with me. I shot a film in Hawaii called, “Broke”, in which I play the lead, an amateur pimp in streets of Waikiki. Its film about the dark side of paradise. The experience of shooting in Hawaii was amazing, it really felt like home away from home. The people treated me like a local boy and the crew of the film was top-notch. The local crew was headed by a local director named James Sereno, we had a great time in shooting what I hope to be the first of many films out there. When I got home I changed agents and immediately booked a guest starring role on CSI:Miami… Shooting that show was a trip. I have to admit I had a great time. My first day on the set I get welcomed by being chased through the streets, slammed on the ground with guns to my neck, man, Caruso is intense. David Caruso has quite a reputation around town, one thing I can say is he is an intense guy and intense actor. I’ve been a fan of his from his “King of New York” days, if you haven’t seen that film, it is a must see. Not only do you get to see Christopher Walken in a classic performance, you get to see Caruso, Wesley Snipes and Laurence Fishbourne as young actors tearing it up. So, coming on the set of CSI, I definitely respected the guy and he showed me love. Yeah, he rewrote the scenes and fought to change some of the set ups, but it was all to improve the story. All I can say is it was memorable… and I am honored to have shot the 200th episode of the show as well as getting the chance to work with a true icon. For me Caruso is an iconic television actor up there with likes of television icons I got to work with like, Michael Landon in Highway to Heaven, Will Smith on Fresh Prince, and I even got to work with John Ritter when we both guest starred on Touched By an Angel.
There’s great television these days, right now as I’m writing this blog, I’m watching “Boardwalk Empire”… brilliant show, I haven’t missed an episode yet. The shows I’m watching right now besides that are “Bored to Death”, “Eastbound & Down”… I got some other guilty pleasure shows, but I rather not say them for fear of embarrassing myself.
Beyond that, I think were caught up… It’s the end of the year and were starting the Holiday Season… I’ll see you next week.
