Tomorrow, I’m Extra Special

Tomorrow morning I’m getting up at 5 AM and heading into the city. Sometime yesterday, Toby wrote me to see if I wanted to be an extra in a movie. His boss’s wife is a producer and he was trying to find young, 30-something people to fill a few spots. Toby told him yes. And then I forgot about it.

Last night, as I was walking to meet Toby Joe for dinner, my cell phone rang. I answered it. Which is unheard of, my answering a call from some number I don’t recognize. It was the producer for Gweneth Paltrow’s new film. She asked me if I wanted to be an extra in her movie. All I have to do is wear something fancy and consume a gourmet breakfast. And I have to be there by 6 AM.

I’m already nervous and all I have to do is stand there. Hopefully, I can take a few pictures.

  3. I forget the name. I don’t think she’s in this movie. She’s directing it. (So I have heard. I will know more at 10 AM tomorrow. And you know damn well I will write all about it.) :]

  5. Gerry – we need to get her sauced up tonight so she misses the wake-up call and spends the rest of her life lamenting the “big break” that got away.

  6. I was thinking the same thing- let’s get her tanked tonight and if she does happen to make it tomorrow, she’ll be keeping it real as a true 30-something new yorker on a typical Friday morning.
