So on March 2nd the Salmon show(Gills Gone Wild) on "Good Eats" with Alton Brown will air. I get to play the Doctor in the opening scene. It's a fun scene with no rubber gloves or lisigav involved. He's a great guy to work for and an ex steadicam operator.
Let me know what you think of my thesbianic skills or lack of. Go easy!

Charles your performance is far more entertaining than my attempt at recreating barely concerned medical professional.
Was Braff pissed that they cast you?

Ramon, check out the notes next to the video.

Amando, hopefully the last thing you saw Travolta in wasn't "Hairspray"...?

I've found myself acting as a scientist on 2 seperate occasions, both for commercials and my shots made the cut both times...not nearly as prestigeous as your 15sec of fame though Charles! :lol:

I got to be a random henchman in a western once. They were short on extras with facial hair so they resorted to crew members. Giving crew members guns is probably a bad idea, but it is fun to work with a gun holster on!
