Hello friends! It's been a while, but not for lack of crazy background stories. For example, recently, I was playing a random pedestrian outside Central Booking for a popular cable series. We shot the scene and then took a short break. When it was time to go back to the scene, there were three Teamsters standing near my spot. One of them was smoking. They asked if I was with the show and I said yes, I was a background actor. I asked what their roles were and one of the non-smokers said, oh, we're not with the show -- we're taking this guy into booking but letting him have one last cigarette. I must have looked shocked because the perp said, "don't worry - I'm not a murderer." I told them that they might want to move because they were in the shot. They said, OH! The guy put out his cigarette and the two plainclothes cops took him in for booking. The whole time, we were standing under a jailhouse window that was filled with toilet paper. The next day I was meeting family in Chinatown for lunch and walked by the was still filled with toilet paper.
