Tribeca Film Festival

Now THIS was fun: Running around Rockefeller Plaza for the Tribeca Film Festival’s Drive-In Movie evening. This being New York City, no one actually DROVE in anything but their own feet, but the idea was symbolic and a car company WAS the sponsor. Watch for an appearance by former SNL cast member Rachel Dratch.

Jazzercise Halftime Show

The last time I heard the word “Jazzercise”, I still played with Weeble Wobbles…. (Remember those?!?! I loved my Weeble Wobble Treehouse!  But I digress….) Jazzercise apparently never went away, unlike the Weeble Wobbles, and to prove it, Jazzercisers from all over Florida converged on Dolphin Stadium to perform in a special halftime show. The…

The Miracle Lid

My first Infomercial! The casting directors for this Infomercial didn’t want to see me for an audition (the culprit: my glamorous red hair!)  But my spunky agent sent me anyway, and I booked the job! And what a job!  I got paid to crack jokes and eat.  Well, also to hit the major talking points. …

The Dirty Weather Report

What better way to respond to the prospect of global warming than to drop a few choice words on a weathercast? That’s the premise of my last commercial to hit the airwaves.  It’s for the Climate Reality Initiative, created by Al Gore (who also created the internet). I am Le Grand Finalé!

Party Rock Spoof

Is that blurry video of Eileen dancing like a goofball?  Only one way to find out…. This is an “industrial”, a video that companies create for their own internal use…except this one is so good the company loves to show it off! In our story, I’m part of an old school account team frozen in…

Seminole Casino Hollywood

I confess I have developed a taste for champagne after a lifelong preference for sparkling cider. WHAT does this have to do with my casino commercial? Just that the casino’s advertising executive at the shoot handed me a flute of beautiful, sparkling Cava (Spain’s champagne) as a prop.  And Cava is too delightful to waste. …

Baptist Medical Plaza (en Español)

I feel fortunate that I can audition for twice as many commercials because I’m bilingual (so Speak Spanish, kids!) I’ve been cast in both English language and Spanish spots, but it really comes in handy when the commercial is being shot in both languages.  The Bapist Medical Plaza commercial is one of those cases! But what’s said…

New York Law Firm Commercial

So I go on one of my first auditions for a commercial in New York.  They had a script in English but wanted me to also spontaneously translate the script into Spanish so I could audition in both languages. I did the deed and earned myself  a callback that very afternoon.  Uh-Oh.  I had tickets…

Consumer Loan & Debt Solutions

Nice to start the new year shooting a new commercial! We shot this one on a very cold morning in Hallandale Beach, Florida just outside the new, multi-million dollar studios of Miami ABC Station WPLG. My costar in this 30-second spot is Lisa Bunbury, co-owner of Actors Info Booth, an awesome resource for Florida-based actors. …
