In L.A. I’ve done a couple movie auditions. There was one that I went to, that was probably my second audition, and I don’t think I ever got the email that was supposed to have the script in it, so I got the idea of what the movie was about. I showed up, no script, I didn’t know anything about the movie, I just showed up like I’m Tom Cruise. Just like: “Alright guys you wanna see me? You gonna put me in a movie?” They were like: “Do you have the script?” I was like: “I didn’t get one!” So they gave me one on the spot, I read through a couple pages, and I just read it like cold read. It was so bad! I went so cold it was brutal! There were comedic points in the film, but it was supposed to be a horror movie. But it was just bad. It was bad. I was really bad!
