I responded to an ad looking for an actor for a very short film. In it, a high school senior going to his prom is picking up his date for the evening and ends up in a conversation with her dad.
After the producers wrote back, saying they'd like me to try-out, I re-thought my interest.
"I'm not sure I'm right for this... I mean, the father has to look like he can have a 17-18 year old daughter."
The answer cam quickly..."No, you definitely look the part."
