Tonight I attended a Casting Director Workshop with Eric Souliere, a casting associate at UDK. This busy office casts great shows such as “Nip/Tuck” and “The Mentalist”.
When I received my sides for the evening, I was speechless. I was given sides from “Nip/Tuck”, a show known for its edgy material. My character was a 40-year-old divorce have a very personal procedure. It was the dialogue I had trouble saying, I just do not speak that way. Hind sight is always 20/20 and I wish I would have asked for another scene. But I did not, and I couldn’t even look at Eric in the eyes for a couple of my lines. That’s the hard thing about casting director workshops. You never know what kind of scene you are going to get and if it is going to suit you. You’ve got to make it work.
UDK is such a great office and I really enjoy “The Mentalist”. I hope I have a chance to read for them in the future.
