I’m good at auditioning if the character is supposed to be a nervous guy. 

The feeling of falling from an airplane for me as a skydiver is almost the same as being an actor - having a film director's camera in my face or walking onto a stage in front of a big audience. There's an adrenaline rush and a test of vulnerability. 

The ACTING challenge is getting out of my own way ... giving up control of my body to the CHARACTER so he can jump inside and become alive.  It feels uncomfortable at times when he does things I wouldn't do ... or uses secret fears & emotions in my own personality to express himself. 

It's fun, though, when he CUSSES.  I don't know why, but it feels good to be able to say "#>%!" and "≠?¤#$" in front of a lot of people once in a while.


 
 

About
Actors and Wet Cement ...
     

            


I've been cast in several films as characters who DIE
... probably because I look good dead!

And as a dead guy it always seems like I should DO SOMETHING when the director says, "action" ... "Inaction" might be the better word ... but, no matter how good I might be, the chances of winning an Academy Award for "best performance as a corpse" are probably pretty slim.

A friend of mine, playing a hospital patient about to have surgery, said he never liked hearing his director say "Cut".

 

FRANKLIN WUNDER –  This is an inspirational film about a dying man wondering if he has ever done anything good for the world, and whose actions on the last day of his life benefit others without his realizing it.  (Yeah, this is one of the films in which I die.)

WHERE THERE IS DARKNESS - A feature-film shot in St. Augustine, FL about a Catholic priest who was murdered. He had left behind a note saying if he died in a violent crime, his killer should NOT BE GIVEN a death penalty …a true story of MURDER & MERCY that became a national news event.  I played the priest.

PATHFINDERS –  A war film directed by Michael C. Humphreys (young Forrest Gump in the Tom Hanks film).  I was an American General in this one - questioning the wisdom of invading Normandy.  The story is based on actual events from WWII.

A couple of other things ------
 
FLYING SOLO –  This film was made in Fort Smith, Arkansas by Devon Parks - a Hollywood director and recent EMMY winner. One of our scenes was inside a bar where Bonnie & Clyde once hid from the law. I murdered a couple of guys in this movie - I HAD to ... it was in the script!



CHEAT DEATH - This was a commercial (not a movie) and was filmed in Asia - Singapore actually. I was cast as an "accident prone" American guy.  It was a 16½ hr flight from San Francisco but was a beautiful place to work. Singapore would be great for filming a James Bond movie. 
BLANK
(Next time I'd like to play a "cool" guy like BOND instead of being accident prone).

Thanks,
Dick McMahon
