I wish!

Filmed mostly in Austin, TX, and directed by Mike Judge. Starring Ron Livingston, David Herman, Gary Cole, Stephen Root, and Jennifer Aniston. This one started with an open call for extras. I went down in April 98 and left my picture and info, not expecting much would be different than the last time. Well a month passed when I received a call that film extras would need to show up at an orientation to get the layout and be looked over by Mike. Well, I was suprised and shocked to find out that this was the meeting for the 50 or so chosen to be Featured Extras, out of 1200+ applications! Mike went through all of them. Its a lot of work, so no wonder it took as long.
The next few weeks were a lot of fun. The extras were mostly great to be with and the crew made us a part of the family, considering there were as many of us as them some of the time(at least *I* didn't feel like a potted plant, in the way). Of the 50, only about half would be there the entire time, including me, called the "core" group. Once they brought in a lot more, so there were about 125 extras for the day. We made a list of names and numbers so that we could later get together for our own wrap party, but we never did. Definitely for the Premiere(turns out there won't be an official one). A few of us did get together in August '98 at Zilker Park for "South Pacific" since Doug Taylor was in it.

I've also started a video tape. It has the following items:
FOX NEWS 10JUN98 on the movie.
E.T. 25JUN98 on Jennifer and a little on the movie.
PHOTOLOG: some of the pictures I took.
E.T. 18DEC98 on Jennifer and more bits of the movie(and they say its due Feb '99).
01Feb99: The actual commercial.
09Feb99: A different commercial.
19Feb99: Interview with Diedric Bader.

About the film:About a guy that absolutely hates his job. He decides to stop going to work, mostly, but the company then decides to promote him while firing his coworkers. But he plans to get out by stealing a lot of money from the company with help from those same coworkers. And he isn't the only one that feels under-appreciated.
