Sometimes I absolutely relish the little ironies of my uniqueness. The way actors usually work their way to stardom is start out making brief little appearances in such productions as commercials, music videos, maybe the occasional sitcom, and then they start getting meatier and meatier roles, and then work their way into something really famous, especially these so-called genre shows that can be found on cable channels that I don’t even get.

Sometimes when there is a reunion of actors and actresses from one of these films, it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but in many cases it’s actually a great deal, because you’re getting to meet performers who have done other interesting things, but rarely have reason to attend celebrity shows. And we all know how much I love obscure actors… Read the rest of this entry »
