Going Down in La La Land!

Thankfully I have a bigger role in the film than I do in the trailer! Here's the latest film I'm excited to be a part of: Going Down in La La Land. This dark comedy is an adaptation of the book by my pal Andy Zeffer. 

It was shot last winter in Hollywood where I got to work with talented actors and friends Casper Andreas, Allison Lane ("Trisha" from A Four Letter Word), Michael Medico, Kim Allen ("Salome" from Violet Tendencies), and Matthew Ludwinski.  Also appearing in the film are the fabulous Alec Mapa, Bruce Vilanch, and love goddess Judy Tenuta!

I play "Matthew" - a nasty, bitter boss.  I know you are thinking this is stunt casting as playing a bitchy queen is a real stretch for me.  Thankfully, I dug deep using both Stella Adler and Meisner techniques to give a credible performance.  Ultimately, my character helps hurtle our young sexy star headlong into porn...which, you know, happens.

Check out the La La Land Kickstarter page - to help out with finishing funds...and score a pre-purchase of the DVD -among many other prizes!

Here's the trailer.  If you don't blink in the wrong place, you may catch me *shock* with my shirt ON.

This film looks like it gets pretty grim. Does Casper need to do one grim film for every three comedies to keep things balanced?

Auntie M, I think he does like to throw some drama in the mix. But this one is going to be funny along the way too, I promise!!

I'm glad to hear that you have a bigger part than in the trailer, in which I couldn't find you at all until Casper pointed it out. I can't wait to see it; I've already ordered the DVD.
