I'm guessing you struggle with this question too: "Should I really share this on social media??" So when I got cast in the Netflix reboot of "Gilmore Girls," I wasn't sure if I should post the above photo or just wait until I shot the episode and it was about to air. Then I smacked some sense into myself, "Um, dude, this is a big deal! Of course you tell people! You're an actor! It's important that people know that you're working!" So I posted the pic on FB and IG (Facebook and Instagram, Dad.)
Well, I'm VERY happy that I shared the above pic because my buddy, comedian Jason Pickar, saw the photo and got really excited. He's a huge fan of the show. He sent me a message asking, "How can I be involved? I'll play ANYTHING." I passed his info along to my talented dear friend, casting director Jami Rudofsky, and guess what? She brought him in for a role and he booked it! He got cast! Shortly thereafter, with permission from the producers, he brought his girlfriend on to the set, stood at the center of the Stars Hollow gazebo, and proposed to her!! How cool is that?? The moral of the story? My Facebook posts change lives, people! ;-)
As for my experience, I had an AMAZING time on set and, unfortunately, yup, that's all that I'm allowed to tell you right now. Pics and stories to follow as soon as it airs.
