Emmie, my parents Boxer has a large inoperable cancerous tumor in her belly. They are giving her 2 weeks to 2 months to live.

This fucking sucks.

She's my girlfriend. She's the only really affectionate one of the 3 dogs here. I need a regular supply of doggie kisses and the boys are both extremely stingy.

Chase - "Havoc"
This was shot as episode 7, but aired as episode 6. I'm not sure if episode 2 will ever air..


I'm visible on the link above at:

4:41 in the jail right behind Annie.

21:29-21.35 I'm walking down the hall, just the back of my head, mostly.

21:42 I'm actually 'talking' to a girl, shaking my head, but they cut her out completely.

21:49-21:50 This was the "big moment" because it's a full on face shot. I'm not sure why I look so mad, though!

22:02 and 22:06 Talking to the same girl above. I missed this until just now.

25:05 For a split second, you can see my five-head and hair

25:09-25:10 I'm in the back left wearing the labcoat.

The guy I'm standing with is the guy that plays "Rick Perry" in this video:


I'd say for one day of shooting, 15 seconds on screen, including one almost 2 second face shot is pretty good.

Don't know how much you'll see me in episode 9, even though I was there for 3 full shooting days.

Episode 11, which I was technically there for 4 days, but one of them got cut (I got paid to do nothing and was released for the day after 2 hours). Yesterday morning I got to share a bit of the limelight with Kelli and Jesse in a scene where I'm holding my gun on Omari Hardwick and they run up beside me. Kelli was actually shoulder to shoulder to me for several seconds so it should be a very clear, non-blurry shot that lasts a long time for a scene like that.

So.. I just realized that I was in the series finale of one of the highest reviewed shows on TV.

Unfortunately, a year from now,(Possibly less) most people will forget that it was ever on in the first place.

Remember that last post?
Well fuhgeddaboutit.

It took 4 times watching it and getting upset about it to go back and reeeally look closely, but it paid off.


Officer Ward.. Or me, if you prefer.

That's me on the left. I walked out of the shot just as the Captain and Cat were walking in.

Simi, don't bother with Hulu, I wasn't there.

My 3 scenes were edited to not include me, which totally happens sometimes, but it really was a buzzkill.

THe scene where Bob and Drew were sitting on the bench talking about Drew's arrest, I was originally walking down the hall on the right side. THe first take I had keys on my belt and they re-shot it without the keys, but apparently they focused in far enough to cut off the right side of the hallway, which is where I was.

The part where the police captain was talking to Cat and the other cop had me walking by as they walked into the scene, but they evidently decided to just start the scene when they were on their marks, not with them walking in, so I got cut from that one.

The last part where I got cut was when the 3 of them were walking across the street.. I was originally on the stairs behind them and walked over to one of the cop cars, but evidently I was already at the car by the time they got close enough. The truck that speeds past was my cue to walk,, and it was 50 feet away initially. You might be able to see me leaning into the car, but I didn't lok that closely.

Never fear, Chase episode #7 which airs on November 1st definitely shows my face at least once, if not 3 or 4 times. I'll remind you appropriately. :)

OK this is it, people! This is not a drill. This is not a dress rehearsal. This is the real thing: I make my network television debut tonight at 8pm on Lone Star on FOX at 9pm EST/8pm CST!!!!

Didn't suck.
Honestly, I probably never would have turned on Lone Star or Chase if I had not been a part of them, in my own little way. I knew the premise of both, but I had no idea that LS was gonna twist that early. OK, so it was just a little one, but I didn't realize that he was going to marry Lindsay as well. I have no idea (I'm not sure Bob does either) how he's going to work that..

I LOVED the fact that they played the band Mumford and Sons 3 separate times during the episode. It was SO MUCH COOLER that they played the first song while Lindsay (Eloise Mumford) was on the screen. I think the soundtrack people like tie-ins as much as I do.

Chase was good. Better than expected. I would have liked to (now that I see it) episode 2 because the baddie in that one was a really creepy guy on Ghost Whisperer. I probably would have geeked out more with him than the stars of the show. LOL

I was on Episode 7, which should air on November 1. I'm prohibited from posting spoilers, but I think it's gonna be a doozie.. ;)

Wow. Just..Wow. (That'a a good wow, btw..)
Just got home from shooting 10 hours on episode 7 of "Chase", which premiers on Sept 20 at 9pm on NBC (So you can still catch Lone Star on Fox at 8 and flip over and see both!) (Times are CST, btw..)

But holy cow, it was hot in the holding area. I had a tie on all day, and a t-shirt, and long sleeves.. Oy vey. Plus a lab coat for some of the shots, since I was a Doctor for most of it.

I was in 3 or 4 Doctor scenes as well as 1 random person in the jail scene AND a waiting room dude (different outfit, as to look like a diff person).

I'm all over the damn place, so you will DEFINITELY see me, and it will UNMISTAKABLY be me.. unliuke Lone Star where it's more of a glimpse.

It was a really good day. :)
