While I have absolutely no aspirations to be an actress, I have this weird obsession about being an extra. For a few weeks now I’ve spotted the movie trucks all around Baltimore (I love the idea of movies bringing revenue to the city) and light up. The film is a 1950s period piece called “My One and Only” and stars Renee Zellweger, Kevin Bacon and “Mr. Big” (who was in a scene a half block from my house). Even more exciting than the stars are these awesome cars and fantastic costumes. If anyone knows how I can be an extra, do let me know! In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled around Baltimore… wish I could show you more, but guess you’ll just have to wait for the movie to come out next summer.

It’s killing me! The traffic on Charles has made me late all this week. But it’s great for the city!

I used to be an extra in LA! It was fun. If Baltimore has a film commission office, they may have information on the casting agency, or you can approach somebody working on the set and ask them if they know.
