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?

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.
I'm Ezra Fucking Buzzington, bitch.
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.

Really happy to see THE ARTIST getting so much positive attention. I've
This happened. :)

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.

Well. That happened.
All finished with the production of SOUTH STREET at the Pasadena Playhouse.
To say it was challenging is cheap and easy. I've never worked so hard on a show in my entire life.
The reviews were specific in their studied critiques and unanimously lauded the brilliant cast.
If there were problems with the show, they had nothing to do with the players.
I'm very proud to have made my Pasadena Playhouse debut. It's one of the most awarded and recognized regional theatres in the country and is the “State Theatre of California”. Didn't even know we had one. Does every state? I'm thinking, no.
While I'm really glad to have my life back, I'll miss the incredibly tight knit cast more than I've ever missed any company. They were all, with no smoke blown, the best group of people I've ever been lucky enough to work with. I can't wait for the opportunity to share the stage with any one of them again.
So. Now I'm looking for work again.
Living the life of a professional actor is about constantly finding work. It's crazy. The work itself is a breeze. It's all the other shite you have to do that gnaws at you.
Here's a poster of an upcoming indie film I shot in Trona, California this last Spring. Google Map Trona and take a brief tour. The place is incredible. Haven't seen the film yet, but I'm hearing really good stuff. Love the poster. Click for larger image.
So. Cool. More when I get around to it, I guess.
Keep the questions coming, yo.
Ezra Performs at Pasadena Playhouse
