Donald F Lippincott

My Grandfather, a two time Olympic medalist. I can't believe I found this footage of him getting the bronze in the 100m. I did not know this film existed. More to come.

Math = Comedy

You saw it here first, the eerie resemblance of SNL's Will Forte character "The Falconer" (shown with said falcon: Donald) to the nutty Russian Math genius, Grigory Perelman, who recently turned down Math's highest honor, the Fields Medal.

Back again today to the offices of Lieberman Patton casting for a role on the new series "Vanished". I was right for the role & think the audition went alright. I may have felt just a tad funky by skipping breakfast... or maybe it was the fact that as I walked out there was YET ANOTHER F'n parking ticket. So I learned something for next time. Which was a little later at Maryclaire Sweeters for a Sweedish clothing commercial. I left this one in the room & came out smiling and there was no ticket. All is well.


Off to Scriptwrights later tonight. We have our site back up again, have I told you this? Click on the name to check it out. Between this & Howey's class being back in town I feel like I'm getting a good workout & staying fresh.

Thursday, August 17, 2006 I never left

I just got back from a kick ass class with my old teacher, Bill Howey. So good, so real seems like it was only yesterday that I left Denver for L.A. Well now Bill and his lovely wife Carla have moved back here and set up class again. I'm quite psyched! Some of you may remember me talking about his book, The Actor's Menu
And class is filling up. I highly recommend it, contact them soon(or ask me some questions in an email)if you're interested.

I still have a big post about the awesome experience on Netherbeast Incorporated, and a 3/4 completed , way late 12 of 12 to do once I catch up on some sleep.

Hero of the week

Chris Paine, Director of "Who Killed The Electric Car". I had heard just a little about this film when I stumbled upon this clip of his appearance on The Daily Show. Check out his MySpace Film Page to see a trailer & the list of screenings all around the country.

Then go see the film.

And let's do something kind for our planet and/or its inhabitants today ...we'll feel good.

just in case the booking was not quite enough information, I can tell you that although I am friends with these fellas and have worked with them before, I did have to audition. And I gave it the old college try* indeed. Here's a leaked still from one of the audition takes. If you look closely you can tell that that is not my actual facial hair. Now, I did not spring for the $50 piece nor did I cheap out and get the $2 one, I split the difference ...and I think it shows.

Booked a Feature

It's A comedy/horror brought to you by the Ronalds Brothers, the same creative team that hired this guy for the 2003 Vietnam short A.W.O.L. I'll be sharing one of my scenes with Robert Wagner, how cool is that? What do you think the chances are of that clip ending up on my reel? I'll give you a hint, it's just above 99%. I'll be playing historical figure, Alexander Graham Bell.

Don't think I've done that before. more on this later tonight...I swear ...I just have to do some more overdue editing (yes, yours) ... <8/4/6> ok, i didn't catch up yet...i think i must need to stop promosing that.
