The countdown has begun to the premiere of NBC's Crossbones.
I play Oswald Eisengrim, pirate henchman to John Malkovich's Blackbeard. I will be appearing in 9 of 10 episodes. Quite the coup for me as I was originally only hired for 6 episodes. Thanks to all involved for deciding my character deserved to be seen more.
I've been putting lots of pictures and information on my Facebook Fan Page
So, now is the time people, and by people I mean Nielsen Families, to watch every second of the show and all the commercials. Thanking you in advance.

Six months in Puerto Rico and Crossbones is wrapped! NBC has announced it will begin to sail on May 30. Fridays at 10PM. Here's hoping it will be a huge success and sail on for many years. Please watch. Please tell all your friends. It was an amazing experience, Puerto Rico is a lovely island filled with wonderful, warm and welcoming people. John Malkovich is Blackbeard, a pirate like no pirate you've ever seen. Love him. Check out my Facebook page for pics and other news.

Well. This has been a busy few months! Flew to Puerto Rico, went through costuming, a little stunt training, a network physical, some sailing ship does and don'ts and
It is a hard hard life I'm living. Staying at an ocean side resort. Views of the Caribbean Sea. Playing 'Eisengrim' a wild card of an 18th century pirate. Working with amazing people, crew, actors, directors, writers... all wonderful people. Puerto Rico is a beautiful place, all orchids and coqui frogs and wonderful food. Came home in time for Christmas in Vegas, flew back to PR for a week, flew home, doing Hollywood parties, taking meetings and about to return to PR for another six weeks. Not bad. Not bad.

Thrilled to report that I'll be getting that Puerto Rican vacation I've always felt I deserved for no good reason. I've just been cast in NBC's newest hour-long drama "CROSSBONES" in a major recurring role. (http://www.nbc.com/crossbones/) The job will take me to Puerto Rico through Christmas (just in time for XinV - Christmas in Vegas!) and then flown back to Puerto Rico late January through Valentine's Day.
I get to work with my old buddy, director David Slade (Twilight: Eclipse, Hannibal). He and I worked on an industrial several years ago for Verizon and I've always wanted to work with him again.
"Crossbones" stars John Malkovitch as "Blackbeard" the Pirate and I get to play one of his Pirate Henchmen.
In other good news, Snickers has decided to bring the "Horseless Headsman" commercial I did last year back for this year's Halloween candy push. Friends are saying that they are seeing it everywhere... I've seen it a few times, appropriately enough on "Sleepy Hollow".
And my Toyota commercial is still playing in Europe!

ENLISTED has received a 13 episode pick-up from Fox. Not sure yet how many of those I'm gonna be on, but here's hoping it's lot of them. (Update: We couldn't reach a deal, so I'm only in the pilot, which I don't even know if they will air. Oh well, they're all nice people) (Update, Update, Series Cancelled RIP)
The run of Neil Gaiman's NEVERWHERE at Sacred Fools Theatre Company went incredibly well. (I did end up missing opening night due to shooting the pilot of Enlisted, though)
After NEVERWHERE closed the HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FESTIVAL took over my life for the month of June. I saw over 50 productions and gave the "Ezra Buzzington's Spirit of the Fringe Award" for Best Production (The Devil and Billy Markhma), Best Writing (Nathan Wellman for Ryan is Lost), Best Actor (Brendan Hunt for Absolutely Filthy) and Best Actress (Leslie Murphy for Ryan is Lost). The Festival was a HUGE hit this year with the box office up over 40% from last year. The future of the theatre in the United States? Fringe Festivals. Mark my words. And, as "Father of the Fringe Movement" in the U.S., I know whereof I speaks!
Also in June, I shot three national commercial spots for Square Trade. It's the go to insurance for iPads, iPhones and other electronic devices. I play Moses. Yes, that Moses. Look for those to start airing any day now.

I have been cast in a Fox Pilot called Enlisted. It is currently shooting. It may prevent me from appearing opening night of Neverwhere... depends how long they need me on set... but who's going to complain about being in a pilot?
March 1, 2013
I have been cast in the stage version of Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman to be presented at Sacred Fools Theatre in Los Angeles. It opens on April 5, 2013. I will be playing Mr. Croup, the worlds greatest assasin. So excited to be part of something that has such a huge following in the literary world.

I've been lucky enough to work with some of the biggest stars in the cinematic universe: George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, Leondardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson and Jim Carrey to name only a few. But, there are certain Hollywood stars that leave me breathless and dumbstruck when I meet them. Faye Dunaway was one. When I met her at Sundance a few years ago, my body literally took over my being and within 30 seconds I was, I kid you not, bowing before her. Part of it was that I needed to see under her ginormous black hat, but my legs kind of gave way and it turned into a servant's bow. Odd moment, I'm sure she'd agree. Another was Clint Eastwood. I'd just been introduced to Leonard DiCaprio on the set of "J. Edgar" and was perfectly fine and professional but when a silence fell over the tiny Victorian room in which we were shooting and Clint Eastwood entered, my soul left my body completely. It skirted up to the furthest corner of the teeny room and stayed there until I'd shot out my scene. Certain stars are mythological to me. To all of us, really. And there are very few of the real ones left.
Jessica Lange is one.
Just shot a scene for "American Horror Story – Asylum".
I can now die happy.
Ms. Lange defines brilliant grace. Her every move is natural yet calculated. Her committment to character is thrilling to watch and she is transformational in her approach. At one point I'm sitting in my cast chair and she sits next to me in hers. I'm quietly running lines for a Pinter piece I'm doing and when I'm through she asks what I'm working on. Whoosh. There goes my soul again. Just like with Eastwood. How is it some schlub from Muncie, Indiana is now discussing one of the most prominent playwrights of the 20th Century with one of the best actresses of that same millinieum? Who the fuck am I?
Oh, wait, right.
Life is good at times like these and I send thanks and acknowledgement to the universe I helped create for just these precious moments in Time Mythological.
She smells real good, too.
Catch Episode #210 on December, 19th, 2012.

My director buddy Keith Bearden (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1836963/) wrote me from France the other day saying that I must have achieved "global domination" because he was in a cinema in Paris and my pretty face came on the screen during a pre-screening Toyota blurb. Europe is all abuzz about the new spot that features me as an underground, black market dealer of "real" merchandise in a CGI world. Hey, I'm big outside America!

Snickers has quit scaring the poop out of me and started airing my Halloween spot as "The Horseless Headsman". Really hoping you all will go to YouTube, "like" the hell out of it and share it with all your Facebook buds and Tweet it like there's no tomorrow. Pretty funny stuff, really:

Hey ya'll ! Check out my new reel !! CLICK HERE
Had a blast shooting a motion-capture TOYOTA spot for the UK.
The most difficult thing about the shoot was trying to eat a HUGE hamburger (which would be "real" in the shot) while wearing a football helmet contraption that featured a kind of retainer gizmo holding four teeny cameras pointing at my face. Trying to shove a sloppy burger into my gaping maw while avoiding the camera/retainer device was challenging.
Also was lucky enough to work with the wonderful director Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) on a Halloween-themed commercial for SNICKERS. Check out Mr. Gillespie's Wiki page here: Click Here
I can't say much about it yet, but it looks hilarious and involves some green screen captures of my heavily made-up face. (Props to Scott Stoddard and all at Legacy EFX!) Dunno if you'll recognize me or not, but you sure won't miss me.
Have a great summer, everybody!
I'm going to Mexico.

The day after Thanksgiving and "The Artist" is open.
I have a small but memorable part that has generated more emails from my friends than any other part I've ever had.
So far the film has gotten good reviews and even some whispers of Oscar nominations.
Go see it. Enjoy.
