Some great writing about acting from an unlikely source
You might remember Wil Wheaton. He was the kid on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
But that was a long time ago, and Wil has since constructed a fascinating and varied life, complete with acting, anime voiceovers, and techie writing gigs. How do I know this? Because Wil is a blogger...a really, really well-known and well-regarded blogger.
Well known, perhaps, because of who he is. But well-regarded? Because he writes like a dream.
Lately he has been getting more into writing about acting, and even though he's talking about reading for television and movie producers, and my peak TV experience was extra work on the now-defunct soap, "Loving", I can relate to every word he writes.
Lately he's been dealing with a sick cat (just as I do) and he has posted a simply brilliant story of a big audition coinciding with a sick cat.
It's a must-read, and I hope it's not too much of a spoiler to betray that it even has a happy ending.
Check it out here.
