About six months ago, a friend forwarded an e-mail - a friend of hers, who books for a talent agency, was looking for a "cute caucasian male, aged 7 - 9 years old" for a commercial they were casting. I sent them Seth's picture and info and forgot about it. I didn't hear back from them about that particular ad.
Last night, Seth was saying he'd like to maybe be in a movie, or on a TV show. I said I had friends who've done that, and they started out by being in local commercials. I asked if he'd be interested in pursuing that, and he kind of shrugged his shoulders. "Maybe. I think I'd get nervous!" I told him I'd look into it - and when I opened my e-mail this morning, there was an e-mail from that talent agency, asking us to come in for an interview and videotaping. They gave us a few commercial scripts, and he's supposed to pick one to prepare - I don't even know what that means! Prepare how? Memorize, I guess. And, uh... act. And to prepare a 30-second monologue. I do know what that means!
When I told Seth about the e-mail, he got a big grin on his face. I said, "Wow - we were just talking about that last night! Interesting timing, huh?" His eyes got big and he said, "I think someone's listening in!" I know I've posted this picture before - but this is the one I sent them.
He's so freakin' adorable.
