A couple of years ago Reid Reker a very good friend of mine who was working for CBS in Las Vegas, sent me a dimly lit picture of him and some other guy standing in front of the slot machines in a Casino. Reid wanted to know if I had any idea who his new friend was and I told him he looked an awful lot like the guy who used to play catch with Joe Montana while they were winning a few Super Bowls.
Reid claimed his photo op with Jerry Rice came about while he and his date were strolling through the Wynn Hotel on their way to dinner. Suddenly she says … Hey Reid look, there’s that guy from “Dancing with the stars” then immediately rushes off to say hi to him. Jerry it turned out was more than pleasant to her as he patiently answered all her questions about the very popular TV show he recently appeared on. When asked about what else he did when wasn’t dancing, Jerry replied he used to play a little football. She immediately returned the conversation to the important stuff, more questions about “Dancing With The Stars”.

I had drinks with my old friend Paul Cavenaugh the other day aboard is new yacht where he gave me his own version of America’s economy. He told me to look around at all the empty boat slips. He claimed a few years ago you couldn’t get a boat slip where he docked, but now they are 3/4 empty. America’s middle class can no longer afford a boat.

Talking about Daughters, I remember going with Candis for a learning session on how to audition for visual things like Movies, TV, Commercials, and Videos. At one point the instructor says … Ok what we’re going to do next is have you audition for a TV commercial. The script calls for you to sing these words who wants to be first. All you hear are protests from the students whining about the fact they can’t sing where as my daughter was elated because she is a great singer. The instructor put up his hand to get silence and said this is the most important thing you will learn at this class so listen up. Your job as actors is to try to do everything the director wants you to do without question. They may actually be looking for someone who can’t sing and as bad as you are may be a good thing.
As The Stones often sing “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” which is very true, but what is even truer is you ain’t never gonna git any of the good stuff if you don’t ask for it.
