Prison Break Off

Last Sunday afternoon, I got called by the people who cast extras for Prison Break. They wanted me to be in Joliet at some old prison for shooting on Monday at 8AM. Sounds great huh? I thought so too. But read it again. I got called on SUNDAY AFTERNOON to be there on MONDAY AT 8AM.

Had to decline. No way to gauge the new boss's reaction to my taking a day off to play prisoner. I figured I would just tell her about it and see what her reaction was. If she came back with "Oh, you should have just called me", then I would do it the next time - if there was a next time. However last Monday, when I told my boss, she only said, "Well that's too bad."

Too bad is right. Too bad Prison Break didn't call me during the three months I wasn't working. To make matters worse, they did it to me again THIS week. Yesterday the casting agent called me to tell me the director hand-picked me to be in a scene being shot in the Hilton on South Michigan Avenue today at 9:30AM. Again, had to say no.

I guess I will just have to become famous some other way.

Note to self: Do I still have those tassles in the back on my sock drawer?

    Love Prison Break. It's one of the few shows I got hooked on. How in the world did you get yourself thrown into the 'extras' casting pool? Did kb hook you up? Hey, if they really want you, they'll be back and hopefully with advance notice. So what were they looking for you to stand in as at the Hilton?

    Now last question and probably the most important - so what are those tassles for that you have in the back of your sock drawer? Hmmmmmm. (Ok ...time to clear the mind of any erotic images!)

  2. That's really cool.... now you gotta get an agent etc...

    Can I be president of your fan club?????

    Of course, there are easier ways to get into prison.....
