My Big Break...

I am not sure if you are aware, but I have been cast in an important role in an upcoming production called, Beagadoon. You can learn more about it at Petey's blog.

It is in all the papers already so I am getting kind of nervous...

Sophie is in it too, and she is an accomplished actress. I hope I don't disappoint her! She sat by me during the read through, and I didn't hear her laugh or anything so hopefully I did ok.

I asked Mom for help and she suggested I watch some movies with great male actors. Tanner said he would also like to can just guess which movie HE suggested of the four...

movie studies

I gotta say, man, I've been watching the dailies and I think your performance is the stuff of Oscar nominations... And your scenes with Sophie, well, the stuff of legends. A canine Lombard and Gable!

Your pal, director and co-star,

oh Joe, you will be fine! I suggest Tanner watches "Braveheart" taking special interest in the Mel Gibson role, as William Wallace.

I can just see Tanner with a blue face somehow!

sorry Joe, a few weeks ago, you left your blog link address on a comment, as we do not have the right feed for you on my blog roll.

As usual, my Jeannie, disorganised, blah blah blah, cannot find your comment now.

Could you leave a note of it again either on my chat box or something?

thank you, Marvin x

Karate Kid? He's got cool dorky moves. You could learn a thing or two if beagadoon requires a fighting scene ;)

It's the best distraction there is. Let a good loud one rip and no one will remember your mistake!

Wax on, wax off. Need more be said. Those others are pretty good movies also. We are sure a Tony is in your future.

Joe could I come and listen to you practising your part.

I can't stand it with Taffy anymore, he keeps "throwing his toys out of the pram" and really is being most difficult.

Just relax, take it easy, and don't get rattled. Because you know, if you do, some doofuss will want to be your stand-in, and try and get your part.

So just be cool, even when you don't feel cool. And you will pull it off!

Joseph Stains! We haven't commented forever, but I have a secret to tell you: our girl has read every one of your posts, whether she read anyone else's through the past 6 weeks or not! :-) And you made her smile continually. So THANKS! (she especially liked Tanner's "looking at two things at once trick"... I think it reminds her of Fig).
