I do all my own stunts

Tomorrow I have a brief meeting with an acting agency about extras work. I don't know whether I'm supposed to bring anything, but I don't have any of the usual actor's kit like headshots or an acting resume. I don't even know if they'll be asking me questions, giving me a piece to read or just looking me up and down. Whatever happens, it should at least be interesting.

PS - And maybe in a few months I can point out my elbow in the background of a TV commercial!
PPS - Or maybe they'll just tell me "thanks, but no thanks".

You can be the new Sham-Wow guy!

Well, not for a while. This will just be background stuff, without lines, probably without even moving most of the time. Like a cardboard cutout.

How did it go?

Very straightforward. My only real contribution will be to occupy space in the background, so I don't need any special skills. The meeting pretty much consisted of just signing forms and arranging for photos and a workshop to educate me about what to do on set. I'm not all done yet, so it will still be at least a few weeks before I even get to do anything. I'll let everyone know if something comes up.
