The Waiting Game

ok, So I auditioned for Everwood yesterday and last night my new agent called me trying to get a hold of my manager for my last quote (the amount of money I got paid on my last job). I haven't got offered the part yet - I guess they were trying to figure out money first. My manager was no where to be found after 6pm, and I told him what my day rate was for a co-star role. But this role on Everwood is a guest star role. (Co-star roles are usually a few lines, in one scene - maybe two. A guest star role is usually larger and definately gets paid more than a co-star).
So we played phone tag all day between my agent and my manager and myself. Then, my manager calls me and says that my agent just got off the phone with the casting office and they are still trying to figure out if they want to hire someone from LA or someone from Utah. Apparently this show shoots in Utah and if they go with an LA actor - I am their first choice. YAY!!!!! But they are also thinking about maybe hiring someone in Utah instead. That would save them money if they did considering they'd have to fly me out, put me up in a hotel, and pay me for 3 days of work, when the role really only works one. In my mind it makes more sense to hire a local hire from Utah since they would save money. (That's my frugal mind thinking). My manager is confident they will go with me. Especially since it's for a guest star role - not a co-star. I should find out by the end of the day today. I really hope I get the job - mainly because travelling to Utah first class sounds cool - but I need this booking for my new agent!
To quote A Chorus Line, "God, I hope I get. I hope I get it."

Hang in there kid, Remember the golden rule. Pray Hard. Wake up every morning saying, " Today is the day I'm getting my big break. What ever you want pray and ask the Lord for the will and power to do it then sit back and wait for the changes. (If you are right with him he in turn will be alright with you.) A little food for the soul. As always love your stuff, Keep it coming.

You're darn right you're their first choice! Optimism isn't something I see enough of these days, so I'm glad to feel it from afar. You've got the greatest attitude, and you are truly an inspiration for many. I love your blog, by the way. Just what I need, more reasons to sit in front of the computer. ;)
