I’m just taking a brief breath between days of shooting some additional material to flesh out Season One of The Impression Guys, our soon-to-be-released web series, and I’m marveling once again at the serendipity of my life.
We are very fortunate in this latest set of scripts to have some really amazing guest stars, which are bringing the quality of our story and the general mood way, way up. First, Erika Christensen agreed to do a funny cameo, and she is wonderful. I have known Erika for years, and she graciously made time in her busy life, in between shooting the popular TV show Parenthood, to play with us. She may not be an impressionist, but she always leaves a memorable impression.
Then, feisty, funny and talented Christina Bianco happened to be out here from a break in her busy Broadway career and accepted our invitation to play–what else?– an amazing impressionist! I’ll be singing with her in various voices in an episode we will shoot tomorrow, (you can see us rehearsing part of it when you click this LINK.)
There is another very exciting bit of “stunt-casting” coming up… but it’s too soon to let that cat out of the bag.
But with Erika and Christina, plus our current cast which is already top-heavy with talent, including Dana Delorenzo, Matt Jones, Melissa Villaseñor, Angela Kinsey, Angela Hoover, Eamon Brennan, Jason Lewis, Tom Ayers, Tamra Meskimen, Portis Hershey, Piotr Michael, Amy Castle, Skylar Caleb, Dylan Mooney, Brandon Routh and others, The Impression Guys is shaping up to be an embarrassment of riches. Which is my favorite kind of embarrassment, frankly.
I’ll keep on keepin’ you posted. Thanks for your patience.
