"Provincialism where that we would reassure ourselves of certain things so that We would give ourselves permission to stay in Chicago and not move to New Yorker La was scary. And and so the the conventional the misconception was we would say things to ourselves like a New York. That's like Broadway's bullshit like you know it's it's all. It's all for money like the if you really to do theater. Audiences all old people from the suburbs. Yeah and then and then la I mean it's time David Schwimmer was it was pure. He had a great company with friends out of North Western call right looking glass there. They're still extant fantastic theater company. He had just moved to La and he just got cast on a show called. A friend friendly's or yeah deferens the defense I think and and so it was a real thing where people were like when I said I was going to move to La people were like, Oh, you o'regan the Schwimmer you're going to be like David Schwimmer though. As. Those you know it's selling out or something yes. Yes. Because they're all committed to the the religion of theater and and the martyrdom of earning twelve dollars a week of CETERA. So I still I had that yeah. Even in Los Angeles I had a television I actually have never really seen friends or Seinfeld. Whole ton of other stuff because all these years and every TV, I just was twenty, four, seven either working on a play building the set or at the bar. That was my whole life. Yeah. Yeah. So I'm as an actor you knew what was going on you knew what shows were happening. I mean I remember getting the advice to like. And I went to my friend's house and recorded one episode of every show that I wanted to try and get. So that if you got an audition, you pump in your episode of Nypd Blue and you're like, okay, that's SIPOWICZ. Yeah. Yeah CETERA. So you've done the same thing, plenty of times like I better, watch an episode of that if I WANNA beyond that. Yeah. And And so a new of will and grace, and I knew that it was like a everyone's talking about it. It was a legendary comedy hit in the making..

To this day I, mean after twenty years I'm like how the I know you like yes. The sandwiches that I've seen her pass up. So I mean so that's how we met and we now do you think did she have a hand? Did she have to pass off? Like okay. You being casts no. In fact, it. It was insular. Cool. You Know A. Theater, company in the Rampart district they had existed for like. Four, or five critically acclaimed theatrical happenings. Before we got there were kind of the only two outsiders in in a cast of twenty I see. So actually Meghan tonight. And the the MAC nations mentioned were. The director didn't want either. Cast us. And he had to be talked into both of us. To you know that going in no. Okay. I was GONNA say that sucks. Like Oh, this guy doesn't want me it was knows one of those where he did a lot of work with the actors gang, which is a great company. We were sort of sibling companies for awhile and he he lazily or comfortably wanted to cast. You know the people he knew from this other company I see. And thankfully. He didn't otherwise Meghan might be married Tim Robbins own my gosh the founder of theater company. Yeah. Yeah. That would be terrible for me. I don't know it. Then you were. You never know you're right. So it just isn't romance right off the Bat. Is just take some time to you. Know it took a I. It was friends you know. Anyone who has ever been in church or a school assembly or any place where it's there's a somber tone. and. An you have your friend or your cousin and somebody farts or does something it's the person that you're like. The that you're going to explode tryout to laugh. That sense of camaraderie is so delicious at the best things about working in the theater is the friendships that you make stage or the or the the confederacies that you develop with with actors of a like mind. The sense of mischief so much fun. That's I. Always I always refer as just like why putting priority on fun a fun. You you meet you sit next to people in something you make some wisecracking they look at you like what are you talking about and you think, Oh, well okay. Right next onto the neck on to the next person who's going to like. Make Fun of things with me, and then later at the t and Bagel table someone else comes over and says, Hey, I heard that crank you made or they reference it in some way linnea no, they're in it you're a onboard together. So we that's that's what happened was we just immediately were like fucking around yeah and and became like cracking each other up. And an in the thing was I was pretty freaked out. I. had been broke my whole life like my family was. Poor, you know more kids on a schoolteacher salary. and my mom became a labor delivery nurse later. But still you know like a very frugal, very frugal household. Sure and then I'm a broke ass theater troll you know from Chicago from like storefront Chicago Theater. And so may Meghan was driving a Range Rover at the time? And We will fully aware of no of yeah. No I was also I was also in this stupid in let me here's specific shoutout to a certain mentality. In.

Anybody, you didn't have anybody here. Really I knew. A New people very distantly. But yeah, nobody who had in my phone book. And so. And was there something making you leave Chicago at that point or was it just? Like. Hey, more of a lark. No it. I just had this this idea that I could stay in Chicago have a wonderful. Time making theater but I I wanted to I don't know I wanted to keep. Going to the bigger world I. Guess. You know what? I had a friend in Chicago who was ten or fifteen years older who I really looked up to was kind of a big brother figure and he was. And he was saying. He was an alcoholic. And I really aspired to what he did theatrically. But the that is a great. Encapsulation is I felt like if I stayed in Chicago, I stood a very good chance of becoming. Yeah and So I. MOVED TO LA ignorantly. I'd done a couple of little jobs for like a nickelodeon show. So head like. You I had three percent of something going on. Yeah. Yeah. But the but the huge Lee ignorant thing was I just assumed. That Los Angeles, the greatest gathering of writing and acting talent in the country. would be at least as good of a theater town as Chicago. That didn't even occur to me to ask that question. And I got to La of course, La is also incredibly mercenary. And so all of this talent is not there do a goddamn check play right there to get a job and television Phil Yeah and if they do a check off play, it's just because they want a job in television or film right or not there to do whereas in Chicago, you're doing the thing because you WanNa do the thing. Exactly. It's a that's very well put. And so. So they just slam me right in the face like you've moved to this place where. Everything, that made my life rich and made me incredibly competent and practical..

"I loved it I was obsessed with it, and then when they again to pay me wages to like work with them. It's like getting an acting job where you're. Okay okay, you're gonNA give me money and a sandwich yeah. Yeah it is because I don't you know. You get used to it when you grow up in a rural area, but there is so much seasonal work. On a farm where there are days where there's not a lot to do, and then there are days where there's too much for you know the ten extra people let you get there. A lot of it depends on things that are out of your control like the weather or the locusts or the market you know sometimes you you harvest your crops, but the prices are too low. So you sit on them and stuff like that. Yeah. It's complicated. It's it. You don't you know. I personally I don't think like it's a weird. seemingly low stress job but the stress of just the tight rope stress of it you know day to day. You're not getting on a subway. You're not having a boss yell at you. You are always you know at the mercy of so many other things and And it is kind of like you just make money at one point like you grow shit sell it get that big check. And then that's it. Yeah. Yeah. It is I. Mean I really Admire Family, members that do it because you're self employed. There's no. Job. Security and. Like you said, it's a tight rope situation where anything across the whole year can wipe out your years income yet and everybody. has loans from the bank so they can afford this big expensive equipment it's.

"Is, are there like high-strung people in your family? I don't think so There's there's one we had one grumpy family member. And he or she? Acted. When eventually cheered up. In their early forties, they found a finally like a romantic partner. Who's really great elgood. and. Everybody. You know we We all pay this romantic partner, a lot of money to stay. At it's really A. Few cheered up the the village I think this is GonNa be really hard for your family to figure that out who you're talking about. It is you were so cryptic they'll have no idea. All right. So you were you're from Manuka. Which is Are we in the same because I'm from New York Phil Illinois, which is very similar town although I think York fill. Is maybe closer to bigger things like Aurora and bigger towns than Manuka I think Manuka definitely had that kind of in the middle of cornfields feeling more. So Than York Ville Yeah for sure you're your fill was is a big I mean I wouldn't call it a city, but it's Like exponentially, bigger town yet at Manuka. and. something. Yeah. There's something about Manuka. I always say that it's an hour is an hour and fifty years South West. Of Chicago Yeah just fill growing up Fella were stuck in the fifties. Yeah York Ville was kind of the same way like I, because my version of that is it's about an hour west on what used to be the Eisenhower, the I five. But I you know I said, but it might as well be three hours or four hours because as much as. The city impacted our lives aside from television in watching television.

"On the run, what would you classify as the most rewarding work that you've done? I work with A program of company to build a program for the mentally ill. Too just sort of get it out and discuss it and discuss medicine and discuss. responses bad responses to medication and ways to stay sort of physically fit mentally and emotionally, and that was just You know something that I signed on to do because. I have bipolar, and so that was really meaningful, I mean it wasn't a film, but It was great to just sort of. Get out there and put like very public celebrity face. And just say you know man and. Get some help. I'll how and why? How and why did that come to be like? What is it that that you discovered and you know what was happening? Because at the time this, this isn't even stuff. We talked about right well exactly, and that is exactly what What made me want to just you. I don't have much of a filter anyway. I forget that I'm supposed to shape people's image of me I'm not about mystery or celebrity. You know, so. It just came up in an interview. at some point, it's like Oh. I was just diagnosed with bipolar, and of course that became huge news, and then you know people. Are you know including drug companies coming in wanting me to be their spokesperson? But you know I mean that that was not the point of the point of it. was that I it just came out and then I was like. Oh. Now I, everyone wanted me to be that face so I developed a program that really addressed the whole body and. And it's response to mental illness. It was called the wellness campaign. but basically just his state of people you know. You don't have to feel like this, and there is no shame in getting help. Shame as When you don't get help. was there was was that immediately fulfilling, or was there some shame? Put upon you because you were one of the few were out there publicly with it. Never never had that response at all I. Mean I do remember that in my early days on medication. The insurance companies were really sort of difficult. They didn't know how to navigate that. And you know the minute that you say you're on this medication and it just. It was like a stopgap a couple of times because. Possibly other people in the medication never put that down in there. I have no idea or it was just you know a timing, but. They kept you know after me after each and fly, and it was like well. What happens if you don't take your medication? That's the big question. And finally, I wrote on the by want to kill insurance executives. Oh Gum off. Like okay well, we'll let her you all. Do we all put it on the poll? Do we all WanNa? Kill Insurance Executive I'll let you go here just a second. We appreciate time if I told you back when you were when you were filming with Arnold that he would eventually be the governor of.

"We're close to the documentary I don't believe you. I don't ever believe you on that front era. Yemen KNOB. I didn't ask for any of that by the way. What I need to explain to the audience. Is that basically Walter? mccaw is the closest thing that the Hispanic community has to like liberace in terms of being ridiculously theatrical about something that didn't deserve it, and the other point I need to make is that there is not a Latin person listening to this right now. WHO's mother or Awale out or sister? Didn't drag Walter Merkava into their life whether we wanted him in our life or not there there are so many Latin households where this guy was somehow a superstar. You can make the argument billy. Hell is bigger in Latin culture than the absurd and wonderful from Spanish television theatrical Walter Merkava like it. Down to Walter Gao and Don Zone Francisco. Gordo, that's that's it. That's the that's the entire list. Happy Sixty ninth birthday to Jesse the body Ventura. Birthday to him I don't care. Good Luck Nice one of the most amazing things of my entire life that the original Predator movie produced not one but two. United States governors like you could have gotten good good money if you bet that becoming the thing that would happen between him and Schwarzenegger I want to get into Stugatz his thoughts on the new ESPN radio lineup that was announced while we were gone. we will get to our thoughts on that in a second to celebrate a seismic shift in the lineup work. Work Stand to God's, we are here through through a couple of different explosions on the ESPN radio front. We're wobbled, but still standing, but I can't get to it just yet. Because Billy has more thoughts on Walter, Marcado well, Dan. I have a number of apologies to issue here because you asked me who's on the list with Walter, Marcado and I just I very lazily. Just said don't front seats GonNa Gordo, Molina, but that left off. Lifelock lillies Stefan. I didn't include Christina. I didn't include the Doda. Buluk who fun facts Gaza, the host by the way fun fact, same birthday as me I know you're interested in that Dan then in the silo got that category. We have got Lucianne Havi Andromeda, but they were more. You know there more players role players to the don't find Cisco. That was obviously the don't in this case right, and then there's Hispanic. Hispanic Ryan seacrest and Rica scientists, and if you're going in the news category, nobody compared to Guillermo Benitez. Nobody compared to hit. So those are the apologies for omitting those people at the beginning now, Walter, cal has we've discussed or Rican astrologer, so we were trying to get him naturally to pick football games for us because we had a long lineage Matav. People like. You know the Baldwin, so we had to follow up on break, so naturally went to Walter so I'm going back and forth with his nieces. who were doing this thing and I'm I'm writing these emails in English then I'm translating them in Spanish and I'm getting my family members, too like proofread to make sure that I don't i. don't want embarrassed by so if I. If you have a line of conduct last thing you WanNa do is embarrass yourself obviously right, so I have some phone calls at a making emails going back and forth and I think we finally found a way to get Walter Right. We're going to have him on. And then, and then as I was saying you went on honeymoon and Stugotz is not the person's. Walter was not that would. Be Good with Walter. mccotter we would call him a bit of a mystic right, an oracle. We'd also like a flamboyant mystic correct. That's what we would make I. There's been very few people like him in the history of entertainment. In fact, the world's yeah. I can't think of very many where he is basic. All he was doing was reading horoscopes right, but he did it so theatrically. Retake all. He was doing brisk retail. Is Going to the supermarket. Remember the survey that you said there's little scrolls that you would get aquarius. All he was doing was really it was just putting on a show a performance. He was telling you in very uncertain terms that you couldn't of track back and say hey. You were wrong about this. No, no, no, you wouldn't give you. That will give you very uncertain terms messages of Mars. Vague, very, he was kind of terrible as A. Terrible he was the. Best but he was also vague so vague that it didn't seem much like science. He was giving you messages of inspiration, and positively to believe in yourself at. If you believe in yourself, you could accomplish anything because if you don't believe in you. Who would believe in you? Good question? Walter, so he was spreading positively and I felt like that's what we needed in the celebrity prognosticator segment positively right now again you. You then went on. Your thing and Stugotz wasn't gonNA. Do well with him and then unfortunately we've established that you got back. Walter passed away, so we couldn't get Walter on the show. We were this close this close and again. Jerry Stiller another one that I want even right. You've mentioned a couple of different times that I went on my trip. That's God's wasn't equipped and then not holding it against you. That we didn't talk. Foot sounders would time. Things differently could possibly had well as well. It's interesting. We were close that you mentioned time again. I'm resentful. It's interesting that you mentioned time again because. I wanted to ask you about the Netflix documentary involving. Walter Marcado no, but we've now gone two segments, and you've eaten up all the time. And what's GonNa Happen. Is GonNa? People are gonNA. Blame me for being both anti. Da Though.

"nick offerman" Discussed on The Frame

"Now more my chat with woodworkers slash actors slash comedian Nick Offerman it turns out when Offerman came to KPCC's studios the other day. It may not have been the first time a few months ago. I taped a live interview here with Offerman wife Comedian Media and musician Megan Mullaly who had this to say crazy here. Quiz talk about him out in the car more suited. I leave no windows now. You've been waiting the lot all this time. Many months the windows were up and you had some food and some water I mean that's the story of my career. I set in the parking lot of NBC for deck for ten years ears and then finally somebody asked me to come in sweep and somebody else thought that my mustache was funny and here we are. I'm curious areas about creative decisions creative choices you make you're doing something with a Holly Lucy in the sky. I think you're doing something coming up with our Scarlett. How how do you decide. What gets you motivated? What interests you and how has that evolved over the last couple of years in terms of choosing things and say no to other things well? It's a it's a great question. there was there was a time. I don't know fifteen years ago. Mister Megan Mullaly at my would shop and I was working semi regularly as a character actor and I driven from Los Angeles to Santa Clarita which is maybe forty five minutes north and that's where he had to go if to if you had an audition for CSI and had been up there may be seven times to to read for some version of the the rapist or serial killer about being cath. That's right okay the yeah the seven times means over seven and and and number eight came in and this is probably over four years or something and audition number eight came in and I said you know what they they haven't given it to me seven times. I'M GONNA I'M NOT GONNA go. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA start to choose to say no to things and and it's incredible to just ever get a job in Hollywood and the first place and so if things go well enough the get to the point where you can pick things and that that continued of course parks and recreation up to my cachet I mean exponentially to the point where when that ended the businesses of business so I suddenly was being offered huge Sitcom lead contracts but they were all about an ex marine green who loves to grill and or a football coach you know who who's tough as nails and I was like yeah this to the only thing I don't want to do is another mustache mustache comedy and so- Megan and I have really always been this way whether it's in the theater or in in shooting for the camera we we don't go looking for a comedy or a John Laura. all we do is consider. The writing that comes comes across our table and see what moves us doesn't matter if it's funny or tragedy it's just writing that we think is good and working with people that we think are good people. that won't be a nightmare I'm now. I'm really expecting something to come along for Meghan. Who is the greatest actress. I may be slightly biased but she you know she's known for her comedy chops but her dramatic attic work is astonishing. You know I'm expecting her to have a Bryan Cranston. Turn where somebody realizes. She should be the lead of the the next fleabag breaking bad and ask you one last thing about woodworks explain what woodworks is W. O. U. L. D. and and why it's important to you well. woodworks is a program in. Los Angeles that was started by some very smart people they they're interested in and trying to help us deal with our homeless problem here and the idea of woodworks is people on skid row or people who have lost their homes can sign up to come perform. Labor on woodworking objects cutting boards and coasters and gift items and instead stead of getting paid they sign up to receive something they need to get back on their feet which could be a pair of glasses a suit of clothes first month's rent rent anything like that and then they come and perform the Labor. They're trained by a couple of the woodworkers from my shop they do that that they received their pair of glasses or whatever it is but more importantly than receive a work reference where prospective employers can call and and we say yes. Julie showed up. She was sober. I would take a chance on her. She's a good lady and the thing is when misfortune in strikes you which in so many cases it's because of health care issues. It's like when you think of people in prison. Your mind goes to did this incorrect place of like Oh. It's a bunch of evil people or the homeless you think oh it's a bunch of losers or drug addicts or whatever and when you meet them mm-hmm you're like Oh. These are just us.

"nick offerman" Discussed on The Frame

"Nick offerman continues to embrace his career making role of Ron Swanson from the hit. TV show parks and recreation but offerman does a lot of other things to in no particular order. He's a serious woodworker running the offerman from an woodshop out of east. La He's the author of several books including paddle your own canoe and he's currently trained a new live show which is titled. All rise is offerman told me how all rise is different from other shows. He's done in the past because of this sort of fraught political climate that that not only our country is in but really the world is suffering under I wanted to attack my writing differently for for me to feel like I was putting across a more medicinal message perhaps than had previously and so so the easy thing to do would be just go on stage and pluck all of the political low hanging fruit of the day but I don't think that helps I think that only only sort of adds fuel to the partisan fires and so instead I took a step back from the fray and said I want to write material. That's making fun of all of us because we've all done this to ourselves. Were in this country that purportedly we get to pick how things go and look look what we got ourselves in this mess were all screaming about our soiled diapers and you know somebody feed me and and and so my goal with the show is an and with the title all rise is to point out things about really my it's really made his it's looking at a mirror and saying okay what tribal behaviors you know. What sort of ruts are we in as a society that are partly at the root of these problems that I can make fun of and by doing so you know. Maybe help us all step up a little bit. It sounds like that's a little bit of an evolution in your way of thinking about the issues I wanNA play a clip from two thousand fourteen when you did the Congressional Radio and TV correspondents dinner in Washington. DC All right between the Republicans and Democrats the city is become. Let's face it. A noxious stink hole were very little actually gets done because of the backstabbing stabbing deceit and greed so I just want to thank all of you for making a Hollywood actor like myself feel welcome. I mean you're you're saying something that at the time was true and obviously it's exponentially worse today. But at what point do you say to yourself as a different way of looking at it and do you think that there is something more curative in that approach well you know for some reason the things have become exacerbated to the point where a lot of more people in my world are succumbing to despair or cynicism and for whatever reason. I seem to be an eternal optimist and so just across the years of my life I look at the evolution of of our society and trudges inexorably forward even though from day to day there's always tragedy. Ajete and atrocity you know their natural disasters crimes against humanity constantly being committed at the same time as as a as a world population. We're just we are ever trudging forward where gay marriage has become a ubiquitous accepted thing and if you'd told me that in high school. I would would have said no way that's that's where I draw optimism from and I and I say okay okay instead of instead of insulting everybody. We're all worthy of insults. Were all worthy of praise where human beings so we carry the angels and the devils all within us in the show. I say I believe the you know if you boil down the constitution. Purportedly the point of America is to be cool to everybody and you know we're you can feel is just slowly like clawing our way toward data the eventual goal the thing that's also interesting about the tour is where you're playing a couple of weeks ago. You were at the Windstar World Casino Oh and resort and Thacker Ville Oklahoma. I think a couple of days here at the Fox cities pack whatever that is Performing Arts Center in Appleton Wisconsin and are you intentionally not being a coastal tour where you're just playing New York. La San Francisco actually play the entire country and does the play in the show play differently in different parts of the country. It's interesting a to answer the first part I never dreamed that that I would get to tour with just a backpack and a guitar and show up to theaters around the world and give the audience a piece of my mind and seeing some some dumb funny songs that I wrote and they end they'll pay me and call that a job there's a small percentage of the fan base that didn't understand that parks and REC was comedy perhaps or or fictional and so there's there there are people out there who consider consider Ron Swanson to be a real life like libertarian hero and they come expecting like a treatise on the double barrel shotgun or something and so they you know some probably some of them come around to good humor. Some of them probably leave in a huff but by and large. I think I've had enough exposure that people have a pretty good idea what they're getting at the heart of parks and wreck and hopefully at the heart of material is a good natured ribbing about how people are complicated and I I try not to insult people but I do definitely I'm very judgmental of of foolish actions. I would shake anybody's hand and offer them. A Sandwich shift came to my house but if they happen to put kids in cages or something it's a Let's talk about this real quick. That's maybe not the coolest thing we're talking with actor writer comedian musician and woodworker worker Nick Offerman. You did not bring a guitar or Ukulele that I can see did not. Is there a song their new songs and your show. There's something you could do even acapella well. There are seven new songs lutely think real quick of what doesn't have any turbe terribly bad words in it might be hard there's a bit where I talk about language and how human beings are so funny with their language and in our country right now were furiously sleep experimenting with the meaning of words like meet consent truth were were really wrestling with what what what defines these words and the thing. I love about science is that it's repeatable improvable. It's not open to subjective interpretation and and then break into a song called. I'm no scientist that that goes. I'm no scientist. I'm just as simple man but I got some loud opinions on things that don't really understand like who needs years research. When you got folks it common sense. Let's put away your books. Charts got some wisdom to dispense and the the best joke in that song is I'm no scientist assist but I lacked a question what I'm told so. Tell me if this world is heating up how come mob beer still cooled and that usually gets the point across when ask you about one other kind of side hobby or interest. I know an an actor I think his name is George Clooney. did some. Tequila that turned out to be pretty good and it's wrong and say I drink to kill the Er guy and you've got a whiskey. The are you GonNa do a clooney with the whisky. If that's become a verb about making your own I'm going to pull the Clooney the log Phoolan Hulan offerman edition that is coming out this fall. That is the real thing. It is a real single malt whiskey. It is yeah I'd be such an aunt if I it didn't cop to the incredible bounty. The parks and recreations brought me Lago Villain is really smoky delicious a single malt from Isla which is a beautiful little island off the northwest coast of Scotland and that was Ron Swanson's Scotch and so much so the by the end of the series we run traveled to the distillery in Scotland and which was just such an incredible dream come true I hit it off with the the distillery we became friends and they hired me to start doing funny little comedy commercials that mainly exist on Youtube L. O. their friend for yourself a glass of whisky the and throw some more on the fire. I'd like to tell you the age old story of the Treasurer of log of and we've been doing that. I think for about five years now once a year we go over there and shoot you know stupid parks and REC flavored little comedy spots and I guess it's it's done well enough that they're now putting out a bottle of their scotch with my face on it a woodcut of what appears here's to be my great grandfather's face and I'm just you know I'm just minding my manners as keep riding this train if good fortune.

"Fresh. Support for this podcast and the following message come from the American Petroleum Institute. America's natural gas and oil industry is committed to creating a better future through innovative technologies and greener practices. Natural gas provides an established source for energy generation, so you can power everything from your cell phones, your coffee pot text energy to seven, three zero, seven, five to learn how they're powering past impossible. Hey, it's guy Roz here, host of how I built this and on our latest episode how Mariam Nafisi turned her online stationery store minted into one of the biggest platforms for emerging artists on the internet and in the process transforms an entire industry. You can hear how I built this on apple podcasts, or however you get your podcasts. We're speaking with actor, Nick Offerman. He's best known as run Swanson the NBC sitcom parks and recreation. He stars with QC Clements in the new film hearts beat loud. I know you went to Chicago and spent a lot of time in theater there and work with some really talented and creative people, and got a reputation for for doing good, good work. And then you decided to move to LA where you left your Chicago theatre reputation behind and head to go to audition 's where people didn't necessarily know or care about that in your book paddle your own canoe, you have a great chapter about auditions. How did you learn? You know, I don't know how to market yourself. What casting directors we're looking for, what what not to do in an audition boy. That's that's a big question. The it was absolutely a leap of faith. And I say this, this is not false modesty. I, I had a very healthy amount of ignorance that allowed me to safely make leaps like this. And so it took me a while to figure out in auditions. You know, my work generally is merit based. I'm not the kinda guy to come into your office and you say, well, this the panache on this guy, we'd better sign him up before he goes down the street and paramount gets them. But the thing that's hard to conquer is your broke actor every single job. You know, it can be a guest star job on some terrible TV show, but it will change your life if you get it, it will pay for six months of rent. And so that lends a desperation to your dish in. And that's, that's the secrets of the whole thing is learning to conquer that sensibility, and I could never fake it. I did my best to, you know, be nonchalant and shrug and say, hi, you know, my name's Nick. Who cares. Let's take a swing at this thing. I didn't know this was the formula, but I decided to quit auditioning for commercials. That was one thing. I just added the hours that I spent auditioning for commercials verses. If I had been paid as a carpenter for those hours. And I was like, that was really stupid, would've made, you know, another several thousand dollars. And so I quit doing commercials and focused on on my tool working with my tools and my hands. The other thing was, I said, I don't care if it's not a theater town. I gotta do play. That's my, that's my man. Hood is founded upon creating theater and so I looked all around and some great friends of mine. These casting directors put me in a play. The hook me up with this play. The lead of which was Meghan Mullaly. And I mean, I was I was low. I was drinking too much bourbon. I was having a real tough time. And I got into this play because I had I had a feeling and sure enough. It saved my life. I met my wife and and she had just finished two seasons of will and grace. So she was flying high. She was on top and you deny head. All right. I didn't. I. I was living in an unfinished basement. I didn't have a TV so I knew of will and grace because you have to know what's going on in case you get an audition for it, but I'd never seen it. And so within the space of that play. My life changed. Our relationship began, and I focused on working as a carpenter and this incredible new love relationship and suddenly going into these auditions because my life was happy. That's where I found the nonchalance and I'm like, you know, couldn't have couldn't. You can't plan it? You can't go. Go searching for that because you won't find the right spouse or you won't find the that zen place. At least I didn't have the faculties to do so. But by banking into it accidentally, I suddenly realized that my audience were so much more confident because it wasn't a matter of life or death. You weren't anymore. Yeah, no, I I knew I was going to go home and get kissed either way. So you got better at doing additions and you did a lot of them and in your book, paddle your own canoe, you have this fascinating kind of description of how TV pilots are more likely to pick a relatively unknown talent because that can be good for for a TV pilot in a way that it isn't for a film, and then you go through this long process. If if you get through the first cut, you get a call back and eventually get to the point where the writers. And creator and directors love you. But before the deal is done, they have to get the business folks involved in the process. And this was interesting to me before the final audition with the business folks. You have your your contract actually has to the Goshi at a price and you sign a contract before the final audition. How does how does that affect? What happens? Well, again, you know, that desperation I referred to earlier comes into full, affect those. Those are the most miserable days and and the most sought after circumstances. All you know, if you're an auto work actor pilot season is is a season of lottery tickets where you hope you get to the store and you hope you buy your ticket. You've auditioned for all these pilots and you just hope that you your chemistry is right with a certain role with the tone of a certain show, and it could be anything could be a comedy, you know, it could. Be another CSI off, shoot, whatever it is you just looking for a spot, you know. And and so when that happens and and the, you find a slot into which you fit there, usually three to five of you. And if you're lucky enough to have this happen repeatedly, it's often the same three to five of you. You keep running into the same gang where there's a great actor, Michael cutlets who had a great run on that. Zombie show the Walking Dead. We read against each other for two dozen things. I called him the blonde may and brunette, Michael cutlets. And and so you, you know you, you go through the trenches and these auditions, and that's exactly right. You get to the point where, okay, you've read for the creatives. You've done the call backs. Maybe they've read you with some of the other actors to see your. Chemistry or look at your heights next to one another. And then finally the say, okay, we're going to put three of you in front of the network, and it's called the network test. And so before you do that, you're agents negotiate your deal, and the boilerplate deal is seven years. So this show goes shows called friends. If this goes, you're locked in for seven years. So if you don't like your cast members or if you know anything, if your wife wants you to move back to North Carolina doesn't matter your lot. We have you for seven years, so that's one thing. And then the other thing is the money's already figured out. And the reason for this as then you go in for the final audition for the networks and the suits, and the bankers, and as you as you referred to, it's very cold room because they're no longer interested in being an audience. That's not the relationship they're looking at. You. With in a completely analytical fashion, and they're looking literally looking down at like a chart and maxim magazine where they're like, okay, here's here's what kind of plumbers are hot this year. Okay. This one's got a mustache. This one's
