Dirt Cake and Other News
Speaking of delayed events: I was cast in "Hauptmann" as Charles Lindbergh. This will be the first historical figure I've ever played, so please offer up any and all good Lindbergh references (I'm looking at you, Lemming and Joe). Why the delay in casting? Well, according to the director, she was torn between going for physical accuracy (tall, lanky, blonde) and acting ability. Now I'm not claiming to be the greatest actor since sliced bread, but I am definitely not tall, lanky, or blonde. While I cannot become tall overnight, I can dye my hair and drop some weight. So, hopefully by September I'll be looking very different. If anyone has any suggestions on dropping poundage, pass them along!
