Shameless Self Promotion
In Hollywood there are two types of people, those who sit back and wait for shit to happen, and those who make shit happen. Unfortunately, the people who sit back usually look like douche bags because unless they are very lucky (which is possible), they usually end up empty-handed. On the other hand, those of us who work our asses off to make shit happen end up looking like douche bags because we have to kiss ass, schmooze, shamelessly self-promote, and be everything to everybody. So you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. That being said, this entry is gonna be my shameless self-promotion.
I was recently cast on the soap opera Dante’s Cove and began filming last month in Los Angeles. The show was really a lot of fun and the HERE! network has really tried to do a lot of edgy conceptual things, which I of course appreciate. When I was reading for the part, they asked me if I had seen the show before, but it’s on a pay channel so I guess I need to call my local cable company, and so should you!
If you happen to be in Los Angeles in the next few weeks, I will be performing in the play Naked Deception, which, after a sold out run, is returning to the stage for a few more weeks. The new cast is great, and I am hoping that we will have some more incredible performances. Check out www.play411.com/naked and purchase some tickets now! The show runs all weekend from July 28 through August 27. The premise is that a homewrecking houseguest (yours truly) causes crazy mayhem to happy couples. It’s sexy and funny and an hour and a half that will pull you out of the reality of life.
I will also be the cover boy for HMI magazine. It’s doing a feature article on me for the August issue. And if that isn’t enough, I have begun shooting a pilot for a music show that will travel around covering different events, DJs, and clubs. I’m a busy boy!
Now, one of the reasons I am so busy with work is that my best friend Marcellas Reynolds is locked away all summer in CBS’s Big Brother house. If you don’t watch Big Brother, well, you should. It’s a great study of how people are forced to work together to be the first to reach a goal that they each want. It’s the meanest reality show because there is nothing else to do but backstab in order to win. This year, they brought back 14 contestants from the past six seasons to compete on the show, and the personalities are better than ever cause they all hate each other and they all want revenge. Since I think the shows are, um, influenced, this year I think the producers will be pushing for Marcellas to win because no black man has ever won a reality show by himself except for Ruben from American Idol. I think it’s time for another one. PLUS, he’s a hot gay guy, so if he keeps his head down and listens to the producers my friend could win $500,000. I hope you will all tune in and wish his funny gay ass luck. So now you know what I am doing, hit me up and let me know what interesting things you all are doing this summer. Next week I promise to be deeper. BLOG HARD!
It’s always a business doing pleasure with you!
