What a day.
Earlier in the week, Ted Melfi, the director of “Roshambo” and some commercials of mine, called and asked if I was busy on saturday. I was scheduled to continue shooting “1st Date”. Ted then explained that he wanted me to play a very small role in his feature “St. Vincent”.
Oh yeah, and that the small scenes would be with Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy.
So I made a quick call to the director of “1st Date”, where I explained the situation. Thankfully, James Huang, the director was SUPER supportive and told me they could work around me for the day. Yeaay!
So I worked the whole day, improvising with Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy. It was like getting paid to go to school.
It was a good day.
