Filming is Complete for Sitcom Pilot Terminal B!

Wow, this all happened so fast!  While I was in Massachusetts rehearsing A Christmas Carol at the Hanover Theatre, my agent let me know that I had landed a great role in a new ensemble sitcom pilot aimed at web distribution, set for filming in January 2013.  The show is called Terminal B and it centers on a classic …

Free Man Film Appears at More LGBT Film Festivals

I heard from director Kathryn Rotondi today that her lovely and thought-provoking short film Free Man, in which I have a brief scene as a Funeral Director caught between family members, is continuing to make the rounds at LGBT film festivals.  The film is a sobering look at what happens to a gay couple when one …

My Film Shoot With John Carney and Mark Ruffalo Was a Blast

Late last Friday night into early Saturday morning I filmed a scene for Can a Song Save Your Life?, written and directed by John Carney (Once), and starring Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightly.  The shoot had to be done overnight because the scene was set in a moving NYC subway car, and late at night at …

New Trailer for The Hunting of The Snark!

Here’s an adorable trailer for the upcoming claymation feature film inspired by Lewis Carroll’s immortal nonsense poem, The Hunting of the Snark.  It’s written and directed by Saranne Bensusan.  I’m not featured in this trailer, but I contributed the voice of the Judge to the Barrister’s Dream sequence.  After all, who could turn down an appearance …

Free Man Film Screened in LGBT Festivals Around the World

Back in 2010, I played a small role in an independent short film by Kathryn Rotondi entitled Free Man.  I appeared in the opening scene as a well-meaning Funeral Director who finds himself caught between a grieving mother and her late son’s partner in the planning of a memorial.  The script was beautifully written: simple, and powerful.  When …

Smurfing USA!

On Sunday, Tim and I went to see the Smurfs movie in 3D with our nephew Nicholas, his mom Patty, Tim’s brother Danny, and his wife Ginny.  We went to the brand new Ridge Hill multiplex here in Yonkers–it’s one of the only things open in this massive development (which is so big they may actually …

The Smurfs Movie Is Out!

Well, today’s the day I make my major motion picture debut.  I play a silent waiter who runs afoul of the villain during a tasteful dinner at the Russian Tea Room.  The scene lasts all of a minute (if they kept the whole thing), but if it’s as funny on film as it was while …

Smurfs 3D Movie Premieres July 29th!

At long last, the premiere of The Smurfs movie is almost here!  The date has been moved up from August to July 29th.  And today, I received a call from a woman checking the spelling of all the names to appear in the credits, and she confirmed that my little 30-second scene made the final …

The Hunting of the Snark Animated Film Voiceover

Well, I love the works of Lewis Carroll (after all, I’m President Emeritus of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America), and I love animation (with a special place in my heart for the painstaking labors of stop-motion animation), so perhaps this project was inevitable!  Nevertheless, I was delighted when director Saranne Bensusan invited me to …
