Sony Casting ; Interview on NBC??

Sony Casting

Friday I had a very quick casting for a Sony Catalogue that shoots on the 15th of this month. It was a very quick, cattle call type casting. You just walk in, get a stat sheet with your number, and when they call your number, you go in the room where they take about three photos of you. That's it. I was in and out in less than 10 minutes. I also ran into an acquaintance from Gilla Roos that I ALWAYS run into at castings. She's a really cool chick. I'll know in a few days whether or not I booked it. 

I did not book the Strattera Job that I went on a casting for last week.

NBC Interview??

Well, in the weeks since Gilla Roos closed down, some former models/actors from the agency have put together a group called Gilla Roos Action and they have been on a crusade to bring down David Roos and receive payment for their past jobs. Several people have filed small claims and a few went to court this past week, with rulings in their favor. Yay!

Last week, an article about the entire incident ran in BackStage, a very popular news magazine (newspaper, rather) about the entertainment industries. You can read the article here. Now, a news correspondent from NBC wants to sit down with as many people involved as possible so that we can discuss our situations! Filming is supposed to take place Monday evening and we were asked to bring our comp cards and headshots for a visual effect. I've signed up to do the news broadcast and I'm very excited to be a part of this. I never thought in a million years that this would get as much attention as it is right now, but I'm very thankful to the people that have put forth so much time and effort. 

I will definitely be updating on this situation.
