Extra Stuff

This is where all Jennifer's Hollywood adventures began. Although the acting bug bit at a young age, it wasn't until I moved to L.A. that she acted upon it (haha, no pun intended).
January 2008
Just worked on Armored. I was within hair touching distance to Matt Dillon and Laurence Fishburne. Later I was next to Skeet Ulrich, Fred Ward, Columbus Short, Amaury Nolasco and Jean Reno. I was one of only 3 women on set with like 30 guys.

2007 Sightings:
October 2004. This has been a busy year for me. I started it off by participating in a "showcase", that's just fancy talk to say we put up a show hoping industry people would come. I've had a lot more auditions than last year, and I actually got a few parts. I completed the role in a horror movie, and did a PSA for the U.N.. I did a few more theatre things (an evening of monologues, then a play just this past weekend), I'm now getting involved in the Museum of the West (formerly "the Autry Museum"), and my first show for that, starts next week. I'm also in a theatre group and we'll be putting some things on shortly, so stay tuned.
December 2003. I have worked on some stuff since 2003, but it's been mostly short films, of which I have no idea if they'll even see the light of day. You can check out my personal web page, or IMDB.
February 2003. Hidalgo, starring Viggo Mortenson and Omar Sharif. This movies is about a horse, that's all I know. I sat outside a teepee while it rained on me, and got paid extra because it did. The scene was supposed to depict soldiers taking our guns and weapons away at Custard's last stand.
October 2002: Played a waitress in the Christopher Guest movie, A Mighty Wind. Look for me at the end of the movie. The scene takes place in an Indian casino in upstate New York. I was the only authentic "Indian" who played a waitress. You can't miss me, just look for the hot pink sequined vest, and way too much turquoise. Wish I had a picture of that one. Release date unknown. Release 2003. Others seen: Harry Shearer and Michael McKean.
March 2002: The Hot Chick, starring Rob Schneider. I am in a mall scene (shot in Montebello California). Released December 2002.
Feb 2002: Break A Leg, with Eric Roberts and Jennifer Beals. I didn't get paid for this project, but should get copy and credit. No idea when it will be released.  Released 2005.
This is all I've done to date (April 26, 2001) check back soon! Things have since slowed down in the movie biz, so I've sold out and gotten a "real" job, so I can pay some bills. I am SAG now, so it's only a matter of time before I return to the screen. Watch for me!

Some final pics

We spent Saturday on Redondo Beach. Here Scotty was digging for sand crab, if you look close you can see the crab in the pile of sand. He and rob also went boogie boarding, but those photos are on the disposable camera.
Our last day of touring, we took a ride on the subway, then walked around in Hollywood checking out the walk of fame and discussing why Will Smith should have a star.
This is in front of the the Chinese Theater.
Here we're walking past the crowds and street performers on Hollywood Blvd. back to the train station.


Getting ready to board the train.

Catching up...

Here are some photos from the past few days....

These are just a few from Universal Studios. We went on all the rides as well as the back-lot studio tour where were we saw where a lot of movies were filmed, like Jaws, The Grinch, War of the Worlds, Evan Almighty. I just put a few of the photos up.

These are from when we went roller blading on the beach. We then went to the pier and rode the rides there. It was a full day.

Disneyland

Our day began at 8:45am at the gates of Disneyland and has just come to an end at nearly 9:20pm when we got back to the hotel room with enough time to get down to the pool.
This is us on the teacups after we did the Matterhorn.
It took a bit but we finally made it to Space Mountain. This was the first time. There would be three more trips there throughout the day. Yes I said THREE.For someone who didn't want to go on rides yesterday, much less a roller coaster, things certainly changed today. This is the boys on Big Thunder Mountain.Leaving the park on the monorail, with our new ears. That's the Matterhorn in the background. We did that one twice. See the yellow sub in the background, that's probably the only ride we didn't hit.
