It’s Achmed Ferragut!

All-right, maybe not!  It’s me playing the Arab prince for a Dubai condo development.  They dressed me up from head to toe as an Arab, and I gotta say, I definitely looked the part!  Well, the Arabs did rule Spain for 800 years, and I do have Spanish ancestry, so it makes sense I look…

Burn Notice

Cool dudes.  Cool chicks.  Cool stunts.  Hot city.  It’s gotta be Burn Notice!  The intriguing show airs on the USA Network.  If you haven’t seen, check it out… people really enjoy this show… it’s one of those shows that gets you hooked right away.  Check it out and tell them Jorge sent you… and then…

This isn’t me… Or is it?

So I’m at home with my wife, working on something when I here my wife scream “Oh my gosh, that’s you… you’re at the Country Music Awards on TV”! “Are you high on Cuban coffee?” I ask her… Then I see the TV, and I see country singer Brad Paisley, pictured here.  My jaw dropped.…

KFC Commercial

That’s me atop the scaffolding!  Yesterday, I played the “Architect” in a KFC commercial for Latin America.  The idea for the commercial was pretty cool… I supposedly build a small lift so that I can bring ‘heavy’ KFC chicken sandwich to the top.  As I do that, a crowd gathers beneath me and notices the…

Audition…

Today’s blog is dedicated to everyone that is not an Actor!  Take a sneak peak at what a casting looks like above… that’s it!… usually the room has a solid colored background with  camera in front of you and a microphone somewhere off to the side.  The casting director will be positioned behind the camera…

Simply Delicioso on Food Network

What a great day… I got paid to go and eat with Ingrid Hoffman from the Food Network’s “Simply Delicioso” show.  She made a Brazilian feast, and I gotta say, it was goooood stuff.  These are the gigs actors love…. good company, great food and a paycheck!

Burger King Training Video

For 4 days I was a robber.  My job was to stake out Burger King, study their security features, assess any vulnerabilities… and then bam!…. rob it!  It was an incredibly fun shoot… the production company was awesome and the other actors were great.  Perhaps the nicest thing was the security team for BK thanking…

Sony “Foam City” Commercial

I’m in the above photo somewhere… look closely…. yeah, that’s me, no, the one above, to the right… one more, OK, that’s me! OK, I don’t know which one I am either… I just know I was in this foam for a while.  It was pretty fun, actually.  They pumped millions of gallons of foam…

Infomercial for not so great product…

So today I was part of a very fun informercial today.  I say fun for 3 reasons:  the production team was very cool, the other actors were fun & friendly, and lastly because the product was so bad it was like being in an SNL skit because it kept breaking.  I can’t say what the…

Scene with Jim Carrey

Totally cool day!  I was an extra on the set of “I Love You Philip Morris” and was made a featured extra as a lawyer.  Featured extra basically means you are part of the scene in a more prominent manner, as opposed to background…. where you are way in the back.  So, in this scene,…

Qwest Commercial

I’m the guy on the right-hand side of the screen with a brown shirt.  I was an extra on this gig… but it was cool… nice pay for 2 hours.  Funny note – If you look closely, the main actress in pink is looking at another spot when compared to the other actors.  We did…

Bacardi Commercial

I was cast to be in a Bacardi ‘mockumentary’ global campaign that will be shown on the Bacardi.com website.  It was AWESOME!  They are spoofing Miami Vice… so I was driving a Porsche all day with the directors instructions to “look cool and tough”… so that’s what I did… I drove up and down South…

Allianz Commerical

Today I was in a commercial for Allianz Insurance… with a famous Korean golf star (something Kim).  It was filmed at the famous Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, not bad at all.. being paid for spending about 5 hours on a golf course… life is good!  😉 Anyway, my duty was to hold the “Quiet”…

Bollywood Film

For extra cash, we up and coming actors often works as “extras” or “background” for extra cash.  I’ve worked in several movies this season as an extra… and one of those movies is a big budget Indian movie called “Dostana” or friendship.  It apparently stars several big names from Bollywood (Hollywood of India), among the…

Jennifer Aniston & Owen Wilson Film

Jennifer & Owen are filming a movie about a dog in Miami… it’s based on an award-winning book by John Grogan.  I think it’ll be a cute movie… probably good date movie for those of you still dating!  Look for me in the distant background walking on the beach, the boardwalk, or dining!  Look hard! …
