Tales of a Real Life Extra




So, you know that funny tv show "Extras"? Yea, well I actually do that for real. I actually know for a fact why it makes for funny tv... because almost everything about it is hilarious. This summer I was on background for "Scott Pilgrim Conquers the World" (?) starring Micheal Cera (who I am more and more compared to pyshically resembling these days [by idiots], which is both surprising and extremely horrifying). It filmed 3 blocks from my apartment, and I would show up for 11 days straight 5 minutes before my call time and literally sit around in a room at a table of hot chica's chatting about their sex lives. Although my estrogen levels were through the roof after filming, and my period was a very heavy flow that month, I fell in love with background work. The money is amazing, and they feed you and you do NOTHING. It's perfect for between tours, and since I am union from being a child actor and potential teen heart throb who clearly took a wrong turn in life... I get mad doe. Anyways - Here's a clip from Scott Pilgrim, outside the extras holding. This huge faggot*** with died hair and mascara would do acoustic emo shows and I got a couple on camera. I also stole his lyric book and have it in my tour bag still. I also convinced him this girl at my table was in love with him, and she played along. Yes - BG is a bit like high school.. and since I didn't get much of a high school experience back in the day (because I was way too PUNK for institutions), I really got into it.

Also - As I have mentioned a few posts ago I just finished a stunning and amazing stint on a Jonas Brothers Movie. Camp Rock 2. I actually have some prominent shots in it, and I straight up do a drum off with Nick Jonas. It was all really unexpected, and sometimes I sit and think "wow music has really taken me in strange places".. but this one was just INSANE. I won't say anymore, because Disney is probably reading this. I will say that they wouldn't let me tilt my hat to the side in any of the shots because you aren't allowed to "look gangster". Which basically means "don't look black". So of course I would tilt it before they yelled action secretly. Just doing my part to keep myself politically active. Just see the movie when it comes out. Honestly, it's SICK. 

Here's what I wore:
A leather Hat with a feather
blue jackets
purpled hoodies
bandanas tied around my knee (diemonds inspired)
turqiose levis

Here is a picture of myself, and my girlfriend (who played the guitar in the movie in my "band", and guitar dueled the Jo Bros.. A whole other shitload of FUNNY"). 



How hot is that disney tween!!!! MMM! HMM!!!


***I had to use that word. Its just really fitting. 

P.S IF YOU ARE MY EXTRA AGENT, AND YOU SEE THIS PLEASE DON'T FIRE ME OR THINK I AM TERRIBLE. I JUST LIKE TO LAUGH. <3>(I'M SORRY!!!!!) (I WISH I WAS YOUR FAVOURITE!!!)

Dude

At least you didn't have to be an "Amish" extra and dance to Blues Traveller like I did. Thankfully it is pretty hard to pick me out.

I'm a fan of the comics so I'm really looking forward to this movie as well as looking for you in each scene. The emo-ness is obviously tongue in cheek. The main character is more of a nerd (i.e every Michael Cera role ever).
