Silver(Screen)Cub appears twice in Clint Eastwood's "Hereafter".

I posted a few months back regarding the fact that I appeared in the trailer for Clint Eastwood's most recent move "Hereafter" (which was EXTREMELY exciting for me, Especially considering that Eastwood is one of my all-time heroes!). However when i went to see the film in the cinema I noticed myself even more obviously a second time:

The other scene is during a reading of "Little Norrit" by Derek Jacobi. The scene also features Matt Damon, but he is at the end of the shot and I'm at the beginning. (He was sat about 5 or 6 rows in front of me.)

It was during the setup for that shot that I overheard a conversation between Damon and Eastwood in which Eastwood made a drummer joke... I actually nearly wet my pants when I heard it.

This second set of screen caps comes from about a minute later in the film where again I was placed near enough the action to get a decent view. The guy I'm walking/conversing with is called Phil Cosby. Yep.... Phil Cosby. He was a good dude.

Thanks for joining me for another exciting edition of Spot the Ball!

Silver(Screen)Cub does Harry Potter movies in multiple wizard garb.

So, after finally locating a site that was streaming the movie in HD, I was able to catch a few screen caps of the scenes I was in in the most recent Harry Potter Film: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1". Here you go:

Obviously there were tons of people on this shoot, so I have highlighted myself in each so you know where to look.

These particular shots are from the first scene I was involved in. During the chase sequence. The second scene I did has a much clearer view of me as there were only 3 people in the scene.

That sequence is stacked up below. Please click on the image to see it larger. I'm the guy immediately closest the camera, and my friend Dominic is walking alongside me (we look fairly similar, that's why we were chosen for the scene.)

Thanks again for joining us for another edition of "Where's Waldo!"

Another TV appearance... this time on the excellent show "Waking the Dead"

These screen caps are taken from Episode 8 of the Final series of "Waking the Dead".

I'm aware obviously that I am not sporting my usual beard and glasses combo. Didn't quite fit with my working class character... I was however wearing a very thin gold chain. Sweet. haha.

However you can't quite see it in any of these shots... Gave me a lot to think about emotionally though while interacting with the principle actors...

What would "Gold-Chain-Wearing Pub Landlord do?" and "How would Gold-Chain-Wearing Pub Landlord Act?" These are just some of the questions that helped me build my performance.
