I'd be lying if I said I didn't shed a couple tears when OP got snubbed by the Oscars

Thanks man. At least Jennifer got her oscar this year. She once gave me a head nod as she was coming out of her trailer. Either that or she was just ducking to get through the short door. No, no it was definitely a head nod. We're pretty tight, Jennifer and me.

I'm in 3 scenes towards the beginning of the film. They were all filmed over 2 days in Charlotte. I'm in the crowd when the contestants are introduced, the theater where Stanley Tucci interviews them, and I walk by behind Woody Harrelson as he's talking to the other creepy dude (forget his name).

Wow. I had no idea about this! If you're being serious, why didn't you say all this when the movie first came out instead of now?

I did, several times. I guess the board was just too enamored with Starface's acting career at the time.

Yeah I'm wearing makeup, fake facial hair and this really wacky suit. The jacket was this heavy velvet material and it was hot as hell outside. I think I lost about 5 lbs.

When I lived in LA I use to receive regular emails to go out and do stuff like this.. most of the stuff they call for is non pay tho.

I was in the Semi-Pro crowd, a stand in on greenberg and the runaways. I doubt that I ever made it into any actual shots.

Should I go for the businessman, medical professional or terrorist?

I'm sorry and I don't mean to be rude but who are you?

Screen shot of what you were in?

That's pretty cool. I was just a crowd extra, non-paid. I figured I was so good at it that Homeland will be calling any day now.

So cool by the way being in a big movie like that and you met freaking Jennifer Lawrence that is something to remember.


I never met Jennifer Lawrence, although I did see her from a distance, and extras don't get their names in the credits unless they have a speaking part and even then not always. Still I think I'm well on my way to superstardom especially once the Homeland people see my skillz.
