Big Wang

Wilson Wang

One of the greatest aspects of performing background and principal work in commercials is meeting the other actors and crew.  Honestly, the only thing I love more than that is eating the great food we usually have.

Well, today wasn't a great food day, though, because my call time was late.  Drats!

But I sure met some great people!

One, in particular, was Mr. Wilson Wang.

Wilson is a native Californian.  At a mere 30 years blessed, he sure seems to have a pretty level head on his shoulders.

He doesn't smoke.

He doesn't drink.

Can I befriend somebody that dang squeaky clean?  Haaa!

He told me he started out as a crew member on sets.  Then, he smartened up and made the jump to being in front of the camera.

Heck, that's precisely where he should be.

He might be young, but I believe he has probably seen a lot more films than I have!  I'll have to work on that!

Anyway, we discussed a few of Hollywood's recent sexual misconduct headlines.

I told him about being so disappointed in Charlie Rose.

He seemed pretty surprised about Disney's John Lasseter.

All in all, meeting Wilson was a blessing.  I hope to get to know him better as our commercial gigs multiply!

Hell, I hope he and I will be upgraded on this spot!

From MY mouth to GOD's ears!  :)

Mudbound


Last night I went to a screening of Dee Rees's latest film, Mudbound.

Man, oh man, is that young lady a true artist.

There were moments in the film that had me sitting at the edge of my seat.

And covering my dang eyes!

Racial hatred always gets me down.

Heck, all hatred does.

The film takes place in Mississippi in the '40s, so you know race relations are gonna be an issue.

A black family and white family who live on the same farmland have to coexist.

And Mudbound shows us precisely how they did it.

Or didn't.

Performances were terrific.

And I really liked the slow and steady pace of the film.

Listening to Dee Rees speak after the screening is always a treat.  The woman speaks so dang eloquently I could happily listen to her recite Aesop's fables.

All in all, the film was worth every cloudy eye in the theater.

All Right, Mr. DeMille...


HD cameras are unapologetic.

They capture precisely what they see.

My question is...

When people look at him, what do they see?

Stampede


Yes, I know there are horrific atrocities happening in the world every, single day, but I consciously choose to MAINLY think about people who strap on a pair of goggles and get trampled by a stampede of CUDDLY PUPS!
