took these of me yesterday on the set of the Sarah Silverman Program. I was an extra in an episode, and wardrobe added a vest that I think may have been a skinned Muppet over the outfit that I arrived in. Thankfully, I didn’t wind up in the chicken suit that some poor guy was handed, so it could have been much, much worse. Not sure when the episode is airing, or if I’ll even wind up in any of the shots, but it was a fun day. I got to hang out with my friend Kate Gremlins 2: The New Batch full
TV production is a funny thing. I’ve done a few spots now, and it’s a strange beast. I’ve always been on set as talent, and the majority of the time that you’re there, you’re sitting and waiting. There’s always a scurry of frantic action going on around you, important decisions being made and walkie talkies going off, but 3/4s of the day you are waiting. You wait for a very long time. Long enough that finally you think that you can wander off for a bit and get lost on the lot looking for the bathroom or stand around smoking cigarettes, or mill over to the craft services table to eat junk food, but NO. Once you think you can do these things, you are required to be in action. And they actually yell ACTION at you! It is startling.
Off to NYC tomorrow, and excited that Virgin America has wifi on board. I’m going to post pointless updates to Twitter from 30,000 feet JUST CAUSE I FUCKING CAN.
