Did you watch the Oscar telecast this year? You may have noticed a very tasteful and beautiful commercial for American Express featuring Thomas Keller and his French Laundry restaurant. Being a really nice guy, he asked that some of his vendors be in the shot as well. Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up now!
Thomas also had Connie Green of Wine Forest and we all had a swell time on the "set". Every cliche you hear about this kind of work is true. There are lots of people and the whole thing moves very slowly. But it was fun and if you didn't blink, you might have seen me on TV.
While my best work is clearly my scenery-chewing meeting with Connie and Thomas, you may want to know I was also excellent as Man Getting Haircut in the brief but seminal barber shop scene.
I chose not to hide my talent any longer and I've sold Rancho Gordo and I'm moving to Los Angeles to live among my fellow actors.
