Well, in case you missed it (and I'm sure you did), you can see my one and only TV appearance on the TV show "The Shield" this Sunday night (June 3) at 10 pm when it is rebroadcast on the FX channel. The episode is called "Recoil" and I show up about halfway through in the back of a bar holding a beer and wearing a black and white baseball cap and a gray T-shirt (which, if you look closely, is on inside-out to hide the Panavision logo). In other words, I look exactly like I do every other day.

Many thanks to Bill Gierhart whose tireless hounding of the director made this possible.

I think I hear Hollywood knocking at my door (Damn, it's just a BFD repair).

Anyone else get in front of the lens (BTS doesn't count)?

p.s. That's supposed to be "My big TV debut". Unfortunately you can't edit a topic.

Jim Bartell, standing in a bar, holding a beer? Man, Hollywood can REALLY twist reality! Shocking!

Congrats Jim, I'll set my DVR so that I can make fun of you later.

I don't mean to one-up Jim, but does he have his own website dedicated to his fame? NO!


And you all thought I was just a humble Steadicam operator.
