Premiere Week!


Alright alright alright, people! This week will be full of TV shows that I worked on so if you’re so inclined to do so, check out the list below and what you need to look out for if you want to get a gander of my work as a background actor. That is, if none of it got left on the proverbial Cutting Room floor. Here they are in order of programming dates.

The Whole Truth (ABC), Wednesday, September 22, 10/9c. This is perhaps the one show in which I will get some decent air time since Rob Morrow called out to me, playing Manny the Hog Dog Vendor, and gave me his order. I will be also be in the background selling hot dogs to well-dressed passersby. And despite it supposedly being a fall day in a New York park, rest assured that it was definitely a hot summer day on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank with temperatures in the 90s when we shot that scene.

CSI: NY (CBS), Friday, September 24, 9/8c. In this two-day shoot, I was part of the “Puerto Rican environment” on the streets of New York, aka the Paramount Studios lot. And here’s what’s cool about this one. I was hand-picked from a group of people to have my “mugshot” taken and to be “under surveillance” as the photographer took photos of me supposedly acting suspicious. My thinking is that they will be used as photos in files that are being flipped through or that those chosen will be edited in as the principle characters “take photos” of us doing our thing. Either way, I can’t wait to see the final results. Also, I was part of the crowd making noise behind a barricade after two incidents (that I won’t mention here so as not to spoil things) happened. Look for me in red pants and dark blue shirt walking around carrying a large can of beer, then later wearing a peach dress shirt and carrying an briefcase. Good times.

Outlaw (NBC), Friday, September 24, 10/9c. This was the first show I did and I tuned in last Wednesday to see if the show I worked on was going to be the pilot, but it turns out I was wrong. I get the feeling that this Friday’s episode will be the one, in which I play an angry protester of Hispanic decent. You will have to tune in to see why being Hispanic plays a role in this and why we protesters were so angry. Again, I’m not going to give away any of the plot so tune in and see. I was in two different scenes but both were outside the courtroom (set in Arizona but actually in Pasadena) and we all got in Cyrus Garza’s (Jimmy Smits) face as he walked past us, although I heard from someone at a recent shoot that the second scene we did was shot again. I won’t know until I see it myself.

UPDATE: The Outlaw trailer is up!

Anyway, there you go. Two posts in one night, one that made me feel inferior and one that made me feel like king of the world.

Off to bed or something. I actually have a job to get to in the morning…

    1. I’m hoping that’s the case. I know the episode of *Outlaw* will be the one I was on but *CSI: NY *might be iffy. And it is cool! I’m glad to have found the temporary job so that I can actually see the shows I’ve been working on, not be stuck on the set until 11 pm.
