For the first time in at least five years (and probably longer) I left an audition wanting
the role. I mean, just longing for it, the way you pine over someone when you're in ninth or tenth grade.
I've felt that before for movies, but the major difference today was that I didn't want to book this job because it would make me money, or make me famous, or anything like that. I want this role (and as of this writing, just after midnight on the day I made the audioblog, I still don't know if I booked it or not) because the people involved are simply incredible. If I got this part, I know that I would be in a movie that I'd be proud of, and I'd get to work with people who are superb. In fact, when I was in the room today, for the first time in almost a decade, I felt like I was in over my head.
