Before my addiction to Twilight, I never gave a flying fart about movie stars, or even movies. I mean, sure, I LOVE movies and I have my favorites but I didn't care who was in the movie or who directed it as long as it was good.
That has all changed. Twilight has made me a different person. Now I drool over pictures of RPatz and spend most of my free time catching up on all the Twilight gossip. Frankly, it's kind of hard to keep up.
That's why I've decided I need a career change. Rather than juggle my new obsession AND my soul sucking career choice, I've decided that I'm getting into acting. More specifically, acting in two of the four Twilight movies (unless I can somehow also get a role in New Moon, that is).
I could be sitting on that couch.You see, if I'm already on the set than I don't have to furtively sneak around the Internet all day for Twilight information - it'll be all at my fingertips. I can drool ON RPatz if I want, for crying out loud.
Plus, let's face it - acting looks fucking fun. They hang around sets all day, people dress them and do their makeup, and then they go out and party at night (well, not unless you're Taylor - his ass has to be up early to work out or sumpthin'). I don't know about you, but that's sounds a whole lot better than, say, staring at mind-numbing spreadsheets and calculator tape all day, ya know?
Anyway, it was really 86 Rabbit who gave me the idea. She posted a link about Eclipse auditions. I already have a headshot (thanks Myspace!) and I try to keep my resume current, though, frankly, I think my glaring lack of acting skills might be a hurtle I'll have to overcome. I waited tables for years - that's sort of like acting, isn't it? I'm really good at faking sick, too.
Now, I know I'm just a tad older than most of the cast of Twilight but they can use makeup for that sort thing, can't they? You know, maybe do a little CGI on my face and take a couple (fine, fine, at least 10) years off my face?
Oh, and one more thing: I guess this means I'm going to have to start smoking again, since that appears to be mandatory on the set. That's cool, I'm a team player...
