The Office is everywhere lately. Or maybe I'm just more conscious of it since I began watching this season.
This client wanted some video interviews we were doing to come out like they do on The Office. Um ... you know those are actors, right?
And it's come up in two different auditions the past couple of weeks. That farmer one -- in the character breakdown they described him as an older "Jim." And today I was doing a role where they said the guy was a nice, friendly, trustworthy, next-door type with an honest face. Then they compared him to Steve Carrell in the office. Whuh? Do they watch the show?
Wasn't sure how to apply that note. Especially since he had just two lines -- one of them being, "Yeah."
It's good to be going out a lot, though. Four commercial auditions this week, which hasn't happened in a while.
