I am eating my face with envy, which is not a good mood to be in when I’m trying to lose three pounds by Friday. Bah! Found out yesterday that a drama classmate of mine has snagged a principal role in Veep, the new HBO television series with Julia Louis-Dreyfus that’s filming locally. It’s Erik Mueller, below, who I’ve mentioned before in this blog. Charming fellow with a warm, sad, funny face that is just wonderful. He’s going to do great things in comedy.
Actually now that I’m a union member I just yesterday submitted for for Veep through Pat Moran & Associates in Baltimore, as they put out a new call for principal roles. (That’s when I checked the cast list on IMBd and saw Erik listed.) I know Pat favors actors with theatre experience (which Erik has), so I may still be toast. Still, it’s good to see someone I know do well. He’s a sweet guy and deserves it. So Hooray for Erik!!
I’m still eating my face though. (wink)
