the show stars harvey keitel and some others that i don't really know. they were all on set as w
e crowded them, asking questions as extras playing various print, tv, and radio reporters. the scene lasted about 20 seconds. if i'm on
camera at all, it will be about 2 seconds.
that's 10% for you economically minded people. yes, this is harvey.
It was a fun day. I've attached a few photos of yours truly trying to get into character in my sweet, vintage, 1970's three-piece suit. and since i know you would ask, the cigarette is a prop! and those bars are part of the set...no worries on my status in the city. and the stuff on my boots was a kind of foam to cut down on noise during the shoot.
it's pretty amazing the lengths we go to for our entertainment. for this 20 second scene, there were probably 25 - 30 of us extras which is great cause everyone is cool and it's great to meet folks. in fact, the photos of me on set were taken by one of the cool extras. we got into a little trouble but nothing that should keep me from working in the future. :) each of us received our $80 (although there were a few s.a.g. folks who made more). i know they'll make it all back in advertising dollars, but it was interesting to be a part of this aspect of our economy. so thank you for supporting the advertisers of this show. you helped me buy some yogurt and put something toward the pillow where i lay my head. yay advertising supporters!!!
frankly, i think the shot of me on the phone looks like a regular detective on the show. i should send it to them to consider. i could just be the guy on the phone in the background of all the office shots. i'm believable, aren't i? maybe lose the pads on the shoes...
