Things Posts About Me”
I used to act in community theater, back in my high school days. (As opposed to ‘act up’, which I’ve apparently been doing all my life.) Anyway, during my senior year of college, I decided to give acting another try. I ended up getting a bit part. (Non-drama department seniors with no chance to be molded and shaped are generally frowned upon as featured actors in college plays. Or maybe I sucked. Who’s to say, really?) I may have gotten a larger part — I was asked to audition for three or four parts — but they ended up bringing in a ‘local boy makes good’ minor star to play the lead role, smooshing all the rest of the talent into lesser parts.
But I stuck with it, and acted out my little part onstage with the big fish in our shallow wading pool of a school play. That man was Kevin Hardesty. He spoke one line (I believe it was, ‘That is the weirdest fuckin’ question I’ve ever heard!‘ or something similar…) in the movie Heathers, which featured Christian Slater. Who went on to star with the aforementioned Kevin Bacon in the 1995 flick Murder in the First. Believe it! Hey, if you’re nice to me, I’ll see if I can get you Kev’s autograph. We are so tight now.Permalink | No Comments
