Co-Star, America’s Most Wanted

Playing the role of bad guy is fun.  It’s actually a little more fun than playing the good guy ( * At least for now.  I reserve the right to change that opinion!).  I’ve been the bad guy in several roles now, but this was the first time I got to fire a sawed-off shotgun…

Samsung Display at Best Buy!

So I walk into a Best Buy on a mission.  The mission: to see myself at the Samsung display for their new HD TV sets.  A friend had told me he had seen me there… I walk by several TV’s, but they are the wrong brands, so I keep on.  Then, I see something promising……

Always Hustling

Like in many professions, an actor always has to be hustling to look for the next opportunity.  So we scour the internet, reading all the actor websites in search of auditions, network with other actors, and in general, keep an eye out for anything else that might offer an opportunity for an acting job. So…

Heading to LA!

So today is a big day for me and for my acting career.  I took the first steps towards LA!  I’m excited… a little scared, anxious and hopeful.  I won’t be there long on this trip… my goal is to do some ‘ground work’ for a possible future move.  By ‘ground work’ I mean making…

Atlanta Trip for 2 Auditions!

I am very excited!  A good friend of mine (Cristina Figarola) just gave me a tip on an agent from Atlanta that is casting for a show.  I immediately sent my headshots and a letter to the agent and she wants to meet me and send me on an audition with a big casting director…

Disturbing the Peace!

You have the right to eat donuts.  You have the right to choose your store, like Dunkin’ Donuts, for example. Ok, whatever… that’s cliche but I couldn’t resist… I mean, there was a box of donuts, I am in a policeman’s uniform… the temptation was just too great.  So I played a cop for a…

Univision Game Show

Who doesn’t love a cheesy game show?  Don’t answer that!  Well, to make a long story short, we were invited to attend a casting for a game show, so we went reluctantly because  we didn’t want to let down the casting director.  And the next thing we know, Univision picks us to be on the…

Netflix print ad with yours truly

So we received our Netflix movie the other day, and my wife opened it up and immediately threw away the enclosed ad.  That would have been the end of this blog if it weren’t for Vida, who happens to be Daniela’s mom… whooo is my “daughter” in the above print ad.  Well, Vida calls me…

Belgium Lotto

I don’t know why the Belgium Lottery felt compelled to film their commercial in Miami, but I’m glad they did!  I was cast as a waiter, dressed in the formal vest and bow tie… but something interesting happened.  While they were framing the shot and the actors were waiting around, I decided to sit down…

Cruise Shoot with Daisy Fuentes!

These are the kind shoots that make commercial acting so fun.  This was a 3 day cruise to the Bahamas to film a commercial for Celebration Cruise Ship.  The star of the shoot was the beautiful Daisy Fuentes (yes guys, she’s hot in person too).  And yes, that was a shameless name drop… sorry.  OK,…

America’s Most Wanted

I was excited to receive a call from a big local casting director to play a role on America’s Most Wanted. I was to be the boyfriend of the victim who gets held up and tied up. So I get to set, meet my ‘girlfriend’ for the shoot (Coralie Reiter, gorgeous!) and wait 8 hours…

Website Spokesman

So I was chosen to be the video spokesman for Clear Lead, Inc., a web marketing company.  I actually did this gig several months ago, but just found it on the web, so I thought I’d share it.  It was filmed in front of a green-screen, so they can remove the background and insert whatever…

Chipotle Commercial Contest

Today we shot a commercial contest for Chipotle Mexican Grill.  The best commercial wins $10,000 and is will be televised nationally in their advertising campaign.  We had a blast filming this…. it was produced by Spiral Media (wonderful production company!) and there were 3 principals; me, Almudena Alcázar Vargas Peña (that’s one person 🙂 and John McCarthy.  They were awesome!!! …

Gold Giant… got some Bling Bling?

Got some gold laying around?  Old chains or necklaces?  Well, send it in for cash!  😉  You’ve seen these commercials all over TV… it’s the latest business rage since the price of gold has skyrocketed.  So if you live in Miami, you’ll be seeing my face saying “I called Gold Giant and made $662!”… or…

Ahem.  Clear the throat.  Read over the text one last time and… recording!  I did a voice over today for a lasik eye company.  It was a great gig… I was there for a total of 45 minutes… that’s fast!  woohoo!  The cool thing is how precise the text has to be read… I had…
