I’m starting my fifth film with my fifth director and I can’t wait.
But here is the rub. I’m really not that good of an actor. I might be fine for local talent looking for people to spend a few days on set, running the lines and creating a film but overall, I’m just average. I don’t shine. I would need many, many hours of practice and coaching to be better at this craft…If I can get better at all.
But isn’t that true with everything we do? Tennis stars at Wimbledon have a coach on the sidelines. NBA All Stars have a coach at court-side. The Colts have a coach drafting plays, sending in the plays, taking the heat for when the team loses and getting credit when they win.
So, I’m not great now. But with a little coaching and a lot of practice, I can see a big future in this. Or, I can just enjoy the opportunity to have some fun for now.
However, if Spielberg calls, I’ll be in my trailer.
