I was an extra in a critically acclaimed movie, and all I got was a lousy t-shirt...and "punched" in the forehead by Mickey Rourke.

I had a friend who was in Three Kings, went down to Casa Grande, AZ to be in a few scenes, and ended up putting in months and months. I can't remember how long, but it was long enough that I viewed it as his regular gig. Never gonna get rich unless breaks go your way, but you can make good money for someone in their 20s with no family, which is how your 20s should be. Fun, and a prep for being an adult later...

CSB: The producers were going to rent the house next to my wife's parents for George Clooney to stay in until he saw how much of a dump CG was. He never set foot in that house and instead stayed in Phx the whole time. I really don't blame him...

Remember Richard Bey?

I was in the audience of his channel 9 show. I was even called on.

The subject of the show was soldiers who went AWOL to avoid going to Iraq, and I said it was an all volunteer army, and they knew what they were signing up for.

Yeah, I still get residuals for that shiat.

I don't watch movies and I don't even own a movie theater. Never saw the point.

I was a sextra in a gay porn about 10 years ago. I started out in a small crowd scene as the star walked through us "drunk".
He finds a guy in the basement of a bar, they decide to hook up there and all of a sudden guys are doing the deed all around. Sextras, in the background, could be clothed or naked and there was to be no penetration so not to distract from what was going on with the main story.
Two hours of making out with an ok looking older guy. We were enjoying it. After the shoot ended and the stars left we went to the bathroom together and got off
