Earlier tonight we had the pleasure of having acclaimed TV showrunner Rob Roy Thomas on my witty friend Cameron Datzker’s popular show on LA Talk Radio that I currently guest co-host. Rob is a prominent TV show runner who created Significant Others, the first fully improvised show on American Television as well as others. He is the creator of the “Soft-Scripted” method, which has become very popular and often used in the TV landscape. I had met Rob years ago, when I auditioned for his much buzzed about pilot D.C. at CBS Radford and was struck by how much he took […]

Taking a bite out of the Sharknado 3 Syfy Party

Indeed they do. This hilarious sitcom stars Ashley Tisdale […]

All Made Up for Modern Family

As fate would have it, I recently had the good fortune of having a brief, impromptu visit on the FOX lot for an on-set visit to Modern Family, of one of my favorite shows. It wasn’t just a day on the sound stage though…I got to go on location at a quintessential location that is so LA…a shopping mall. Namely, the Century City Mall. I had a blast watching the behind the scenes action of this iconic hit show and learned a lot about makeup from Stephanie Massie, the show’s talented makeup department head. This visit was courtesy of my friend […]
