Just Booked a Role on the TV Show Elementary
Well, 2015 is starting off well for me. I work as a background actor in film and TV. I just had a spot on Law and Order SVU, and now I'm booked for next Tuesday on Elementary. My role will be as a prisoner.
This is kind of funny, really, because I have been a core background inmate on Orange is the New Black for Season 1-3, so it looks like I've been typecast as a prisoner! Actually the lady doing the casting for Elementary did the casting for Orange during season 2, so she knows me and obviously is aware I can do an inmate role with no problems.
I've only worked Elementary once before, and that was during the pilot, but I never was on camera. In fact, that was my first background acting job ever! So now I'll be back on the show, and hopefully this time I will get some camera time. I understand that I will be one of only eight prisoners, so some camera time will be likely in this case. But as always, you never know until the final edit. They sometimes edit out entire scenes.
Anyway, I'm happy to have the work because it's usually quite slow this time of year.
