it was to play this New york cop in Frequency, and the dialect coach and i went walking around talking in a Queens accent to prepare for the screen test. they offered it to me as soon as it was over, but the actor who was also in it pulled out, and then i had to go do this other movie. i’m lucky. the ones i do are the ones i get offered. auditioning is painful. i remember once when i was auditioning for a play, and i had to say, “i’m just going to the lavatory.” but all i could say was, “i’m going to the lavoratory.” all i could think of was “laboratory”. Didn’t get that one.
