Freddy’s photo shoot


Suppose you’re 48 years old and you get laid off after 18 years at the same firm. You go from a mortgage-paying professional salary with benefits to bupkes, overnight.  Do you a) hit the couch and wait out your 99 weeks of unemployment; b) start drinking; c) join a multi-level marketing outfit and start clipping friends and neighbors; or d) hit the gym and follow your bliss?

Freddy, a walking advertisement for choosing D, just booked his first acting gig as a zombie in a Payday commercial.   Who knew?

Freddy’s Claritin audition


In February, Freddy got laid off from his law firm after 18 years.   With age 40 in the rear-view mirror, and nothing to lose, he has decided to indulge a long-held desire to act.  This morning he got a call back for a Claritin commercial.  He didn’t hesitate to offer a dramatic reading in the driveway, much to the amusement of Rosa.
