Look Ma, no hands – and is that a ‘fin’ on your back, or…?

  • Well, first things first, THE GREAT ADVENTURES OF WALTER FLUNN is being pitched to networks right now (that is, unless you are reading this in the middle of the night.)  It’s a very exciting time.  We have no idea if the show is going to be picked up – but the talk is very good so we’re keeping our fingers crossed.  We went up to iFly at the Universal City Walk a few weeks ago to shoot some additional footage for the teaser.  What a blast!  The iFly folks call it ‘indoor skydiving’.  It is as close as I have ever been to free-falling (but it’s all in a vertical wind tunnel).  Here are a couple of shots of our experience there.  Yikes!  That second shot is more than a little scary.  There really should be a wind joke in here somewhere, but I’m going to leave that up to the reader.  Check out iFly at www.iFlyHollywood.com for yourself.  It really is a lot of fun.   If you ever get a chance to go up to Universal City Walk – you should check it out.  I highly recommend it!

  • I’ve also worked on a few industrials lately.  One in which I was a guy recently back from his high-school reunion – with a bad sunburn.  The second one was for a company that protects you against people ‘phishing’ for your information on the internet.  The production company was Aperture Films and talk about a great group of people.  Very professional and just super to work with.  They had a fish ‘fin’ constructed at a wonderful special effects company in North Hollywood.  It fit on me with a kind of harness.  With that fin, we went shopping for a new suit and shirt that in the end had to be tailored to compensate for the enormous fin sticking out of my back.  The final look was very funny in that you couldn’t tell I had a fish fin sticking out of my back when they were filming from the front – but turn into profile and  – WOW – instant clown fish.  The production company and client own all images of me with my ‘fish look’, so I agreed not to show any here – but the whole thing worked like a charm.  When the spots get released on the internet, I’ll put a link on this website.
  • I talked with my aunt tonight on the phone.  She is so funny to talk with.  I love her.  She told me that since I always tend to do comedic roles, maybe it’s time to try doing some more dramatic fare.  She went on to say that since she enjoys LAW AND ORDER and the C.S.I. shows…I should really try to get on those.  I told her I’d put in a call to my agent in the a.m. and get right on that.  She also said she’d love to go to the Academy Awards – so while I’m chatting with my agent I’ll be sure to mention that, too.  Funny.
