Sure, it’s not the most important thing in an actor’s life. I would put great training, a ton of theater experience and a constant desire for self discovery ahead of it. But, these days, having a high profile on the IMDB page is getting up there. Supposedly, prospective employers use it to “check” your heat level or, as they call it, your star meter.
Well, when I first started, my star meter was literally in the millions. Not that much heat, huh? Well, in the past year it’s hovered anywhere between 29,000-95,000. Not horrible. I’m no Jennifer Lawrence but it’s climbing. For that, I have two feature films and two major network and cable shows to thank, not to mention a few web series.
My last 12-15 months have been pretty busy. A recurring role on USA Network’s Graceland opposite Aaron Tveit, a guest starring role on ABC’s Nashville opposite Chip Esten, a supporting role in a film, Papa, opposite Giovanni Ribisi and a supporting role in my own film, Walt Before Mickey, opposite Thomas Ian Nicholas and Jon Heder. More than credits of course, it has been good fun work. I could always use more of it but I’m grateful for what I’ve gotten.
Looking forward to acting in more of my own projects thanks to my new partnership with Khoa Le at Kvibe Productions, LLC. It should be an even more exciting next year. Till then.
