I believe in an actor product specific image. My versatile headshot would not do. Not in this case.
After a decade @ AGT playing mysticals (Ghost, Friar) & magicals (Oberon) and high status mortals (Lord Capulet, Claudius), I find it almost amusing that the contemporary role I just played was a pimp, Dubba Daddy in Nefertitty in Outerspace, a web series for the Fall ‘14 by Lola Rock’n’Rolla. On the heels of that I now get a call for a murderer.
The director was calling from out of town. It’s a supporting role and he’d be casting based on recommendation, interview, resumé & headshot. we had a great talk. Really great.
You’ll note : in addition to the high statuses, I’ve also played Christ and a mental patient who thinks he’s Christ. A murderer? Well, there was that time I played Iago.
Didn’t seem right to send my bright & shiny versatile headshot. I turned the tables & staged my own headshot. This makes sense. Fringe-y. I crosses my fingers. Hit send.
I always wanted to be in the Fringe. Look for me. I’m Paul in Circus Circus, dir. Christopher Robert Mirto. Technically, it’s attempted murder. I’ll aim better next time.
