Act As If: Stumbling Though Hollywood With Headshot in Hand is my book of essays about the life of a journeyman actor in Hollywood, a life I lived for twenty years.

Harvest

Harvest

There will be several more tomatoes and a few more onions. Maybe garlic, maybe not. Maybe lettuce, maybe not. This is the extent of the potato harvest, and let me tell you, it was a joy to dig this stuff out of the dirt. I’ve found out this summer that deep down in my soil […]

They enlisted their friends. They made flyers and walked up and down the block with their mother to distribute them.  Today, Sunday, I can hear […]

Falling in Love Again

Maybe the occasional tidbit on the kitchen floor, but that’s not stealing. I willingly gave Boz my love, and he grew old and died, and that’s […]
