It’s us versus The Oscars; I have a feeling we’ll win.

Tonight, we wrap on our six-week run of the original play Happy Face, Sad Face at The Lillian Theater in Hollywood.  It’s been a great ride.

I’d like to thank writer RJ Colleary, director Kathleen Rubin, and producer Russell Boast for believing in my before, during, and hopefully after the run.

The cast and crew were are amazing to work with as well.  I truly enjoyed playing with my (fake) wife Krizia Bajos, my (fake) mistress Sarah Agor, my (fake) dad Thomas F. Evans, my (fake) mom Perry Smith, and some cop that kept interrupting the show by the name of Eddie Alfano.  And, of course, Rob Locke deserves all of the positivity he received for his performance in the show.

I will miss being told to stop touching anything and everything that doesn’t belong to me by our talented and professional stage manager, Rebecca Schoenberg.

Cheers, to the future!

I will appear on the ABC comedy Happy Endings next Sunday!  The show has been moved to a new time, so make sure you schedule appropriately:

Happy EndingsSunday, January 6th @10:00 PM on ABC (link to Facebook Event)

Working on this show was my all-time favorite job, thanks to the kind and playful cast and crew.  Especially deserving of praise is Eliza Coupe, who plays Jane.  I play her friend, and our characters are very similar: preppy, upscale, with Type A personalities.

And be sure to tune in two days later for my appearance on Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23!

Cheers,

Hey everyone!

Remember when I was on this show last year? Neither do I. That’s because some very fine folks decided to let my episode of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 (“The Scarlet Neighbor“) age like a fine wine, and uncork it in 2013 instead!

In THEORY, I am in this episode.  According to that same theory, I interact with stars Krysten Ritter and Dreama Walker, as they search for an eligible bachelor in a NY farmers market.

This will be my first time performing at The Lillian Theatre, and all of our first times performing playwrite Bob Colleary‘s new work.

We are knee-deep in rehearsals with director Kathleen Rubin. Everyone is a joy to work with, and I’m particularly excited about the involved set we are using.  Lots of ins and outs, ups and downs, to add to the intrigue :)

Tonight is the first official rehearsal for writer Bob Colleary‘s new play, “Happy Face Sad Face!”  We had our final table  read last night for the work-in-progress, and I’m the script is coming together wonderfully.

And so the process begins…rehearsals through mid-January, followed by a six-week run at The Lillian Theatre.

I’m excited to jump in and start working with director Kathleen Rubin and the entire ensemble (Krizia BajosTom ChristensenThomas F. Evans, Karen KalenskyRob LockeEddie Alfano, & Sarah Agor).  And though he claims to be hands-off during the process, I hope to see producer Russell Boast around frequently.

Tickets go on sale NEXT WEEK!

I shot an awesome part on the ABC comedy Happy Endings!  I play Jamie, the male doppelgänger of Jane (Eliza Coupe).  He & she are very preppy, upscale, with Type A personalities.  I will be  in a couple of scenes with Max (Adam Pally).

Look for episode #3.09, entitled “Fowl Play/Date.”  I’m guessing January?

On a professional note, that was all around the most fun job I’ve had in Hollywood.  The entire team, every member, was a joy to work with, and I wish them the greatest success going forward.

And thanks again for all of YOUR support with 2 Broke Girls.  All of you were so kind to watch, and to comment on Facebook!  I was grateful for all of your feedback.

Cheers!
