You’ll never guess how this actor got on CSI

Play

While some out of work actors spend their days in coffee shops or on Playstation, Feikamoh Massaquoi is literally hitting the streets. I see him in front the entrance of the Warner Brothers Studio lot. Many people pass him everyday. Writers, producers, actors, accountants, set designers and most importantly casting agents. While we’ve never heard of an actor picketing for a role.

After looking him up, I decided to say hi and see what his deal was. I didn’t have too much time, I had to punch in at the TV mill. Watch his clips, they are impressive. Which shocks me because he’s standing in front of studios with a sign. Remember Dennis Woodruff? (Look it up. It’s too late at night to be looking him up and linking him. Seriously!)

So why is a good actor standing on the street and not working? He has what most people dream of, an agent and manager. He has a good look and a sense of humor. One thing he doesn’t have is a sense a monologue. You got to have one ready. A producer in my office told me he has a Shakespearean and a regular monologue ready at a drop of a hat.

I guess in LA it’s like having breath mints or an AAA card – you never know when it will come in handy.

If you’re at SONY Studios next week and you see Feikamoh, give him a smile or better yet, a role.

Ben Affleck Bats Man Away From Film Credit

Ben AffleckNot everyone is happy with Ben Affleck (Batman). An extra from the film “Argo” is pissed at Ben Affleck, and he can’t be silenced (Ok, he was when he had no lines… but that’s not the point here.  Tells Extra “Argo F**k Yourself”

Anthony Terracciano was a featured extra in Ben Affleck’s Oscar-winning movie, “Argo” and did not get any credit. So he’s going after Batman himself, Ben Affleck. Listen to an exclusive interview with the actor/filmmaker/activist. Anthony has gone to Kickstarter to finance a doc about it and gave us an exclusive.

An extra from  “Argo” wants his name listed on IMDB.

Do extras deserve credit and pay based on how long they are on camera? Is making a documentary really the best way to handle this? How many more times do I need to say Ben Affleck for the SEO?
