We shot all of today's scenes at a quirky little bookstore called "The Last Bookstore" in the heart of downtown L.A. Our scenes pretty much spanned the entire length of the movie - which is still so interesting to me as an actor. You know, not doing things from beginning to end.
Bonus - we filmed a scene where I had to eat a delicious blueberry scone.
I have also decided - and forgive me if I've mentioned this, because it's entirely possible that I have - that most of my part in this movie is me reacting to things. Which, really, is what acting is all about (Thank you Chris Lusk!), it's just interesting. I'm in virtually every scene in the movie and I don't really say all that much. Today was really no different. At one point Ed said, "Alright, do that same thing only slower, I just want to get a bunch of reaction shots from Greg," and I mentioned that we might consider renaming the movie "A bunch of reaction shots from Greg," as that's a large part of what I do.
It will not surprise you to know that I, in fact, do not have a trailer for this film. Incidentally I end up changing where I can find a private corner (and sometimes where I can't find a private corner). I had a number of costume changes at the bookstore and ended up stripping down behind an unused bookcase in the "employees only" section of the store. So adventurous.
Lunch: Baja Chicken wrap at a delightful urban 9th floor cafe above the bookstore. Ed had pastrami - wouldn't have guessed that one.
Wrap time: 1:00
