Excuse my need to do a little inbox housekeeping. Below are a few items of interest to actors, nonactors and, well, me:
- Locally connected actor Kevin Rahm, who's now on "Desperate Housewives," also appeared on the season premiere of "Scrubs." Click here to watch the episode at NBC.com, and one cheer for Kevin. Thanks for the tips, AC.
- The feature film "Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds" is currently shooting in Plain Dealing and needs extras. Since this movie is about a ferocious hungry monster, you might get lucky and get eaten. Log on to Glorioso Casting to register, and two cheers for sequels. Yum, yum.
- Local theater actor/director Mary Thoma also acts in movies. She will teach a character-crafting workshop for young actors on Saturday, Nov. 3, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Bossier Arts Council's East Bank Theatre. It is open for actors ages 10 to 15. For info, email Mmatters3@bellsouth.net or call the East Bank Theatre at (318) 741-8310. Cost is $80. Three cheers for Mary.
