Just like most of us, I log into Facebook on a daily basis to stay connected. But, auditioning to get casted on a Facebook commercial, is a whole other level. During the audition, I’m grouped with three other actors. The Sessions Director asked a few questions and read a few lines.
A few days later, I received a callback. A step closer to getting booked! This time, a Facebook representative joined the session. Director Francois Vogel asked if I could hold my smile for a long time. Without a doubt, I said, “Yes!”.
Facebook Commercial Project description
The next call I got was my manager screaming, “Hustle! you booked the Facebook job!”. The set was filmed on the back lot of Universal Studios Hollywood. I was casted as the ‘happy everyday guy driving a Prius’. It came pretty natural to me, except it was the first time driving a Prius. The filming crossed paths with the Universal Studios tour buses full of tourists and visitors to the theme part. Talk a about a paparazzi moment!
