UFO Hunters

So today, I was hired to be an on-camera translator for the series UFO Hunters.  I translated Klingon.  OK, not really… just making sure you’re paying attention.  I was hired to translate the Cuban UFO experts who had been researching UFO accounts on the islands for the last 20 years.  It was a nice gig,…

Tobacco Free Florida Commercial

Here’s some irony…. I did the Tobacco Free Florida Commercial today, but boy do I love my cigars!  I don’t smoke cigarettes, which I believe are disgusting.  They are full of fillers and chemicals and a bunch of other stuff you don’t want in your body.  A cigar, on the other hand, is pure tobacco……

I booked 2 of 3 Commercials!

Today was a good day.  No… today was an amazing day!  I booked 2 freaking commercials in one day.  That doesn’t happen often in the acting world.  I feel so awesome… but I confess… its irks me that I didn’t get the third one…. the KFC commercial.  Genuinely, I can say I did not want…

Samsung Shoot

I finished shooting the Samsung shoot yesterday… what a fun shoot!  The shoot was for Samsung’s new flat-screen TV’s (they’re beautiful).  I was the dad, Lucia (pictured above and great actress) was my wife, and we had 2 gorgeous little kids… Daniela and Kevin. So the video we shot will be displayed in Best Buys…

First Gig of 2009!

So I’ve been on 3 auditions since the start of the new year, and I booked one of them!  Yeeehaw!  That’s 33%!…. Hell, if I keep that up, it’s gonna be a gang buster year!  I feel it’ll be a great year…. I know something is just around the corner… we’ll see soon. I was…

Slow Christmas in Miami…

The film industry is moving at a crawl here in Miami.  Ever since the Film Industry tax incentives were removed by the state of Florida, many projects have left.  And on top of that fiasco, the economy, of course, is also racing at snails pace.  So here we are… slowly moving along. I can’t complain…

Lori Wyman’s Book Signing

So today I went to Lori Wyman’s book signing.  Lori is one of the top casting directors in Miami… she’s very well liked and is a wonderful person.  She finished her new book titled “The Organic Actor” (click here to buy – awesome book for actors) which she officially launched today.  At her book signing, she…

Blind man contacts

So I was really excited today to receive my “hazy contacts” that will make me look like a blind man for the film I’m doing, “I Reveal”.  I’ve never worn contacts, so I had to learn how to do this, and it wasn’t the easiest thing.  It took me 10 minutes to put the first…

I Got the Lead!….

I’m very excited today!  I just found out that I was offered the lead in an independent short film.  The production company is www.waterfootfilms.com .   The story is about a young preacher who becomes blind after having a vision from God.  I believe it will be the most challenging role I have played yet.  The character I’ll…

Not so good audition…

This, fortunately, does not happen often, but today I had a “blah” audition.  The bad news is this was for a George Clooney movie.  The good news is that the casting director said everyone was giving just “OK” performances… nothing great… maybe it was the script, who knows.  But there’s bound to be someone who…

Scarface Party

So last Saturday, I did something a bit different.  I was hired for a private party to be a Scarface look-alike.  It was very fun…. the party had a Scarface theme, so everyone dressed the part.  The birthday boy was “Scarface” and me and Ruben (guy in picture with me) were his bodyguards.  It was…

Almost…

Today I found out I didn’t get a recurring sitcom role on the UPN network show titled “House of Payne”.  It would be a lie to say I’m not disappointed.  I am. I had auditioned for the role of the neighbor, who was the new Latino neighbor who moved next door to the Payne’s.  I…

NOU Perfume

I just filmed my first perfume commercial!… and it was a blast.  Supposedly, this perfume drives men crazy, so my instruction was to be cool but very into ‘my woman’… very ‘I can’t wait to get my hands on her’.  My ‘woman’ in this commercial was the talented and gorgeous Marlyn Sanchez, who did a wonderful…

Nintendo DS

Acting is so hard.  I think this picture says it all.  It’s just like any other job, where you rise and get dressed in the morning, show up to the office, mingle with your peers and work. It’s a tough life!…. WHATEVER!!!! Man, do I love my work…. I mean really… and you probably know…
