I had an exciting morning today… I ordered a DVD. Why is that noteworthy? Because when I watch the DVD I’m going to be able to see myself. Mona Lisa Smile is being released to DVD on March 9th, and I had the fortunate experience of being a part of it. Four days on set culminating in less than 10 seconds of screen time, but I’m there none-the-less. My almost 15 seconds of fame.
If you see it, keep a careful eye out for the “spring fling“ scene appx 2/3 of the way through the movie. At the beginning of the scene there are a bunch of guys up on stage singing Istanbul Not Constantinople. One of them is a developer at Microsoft 😉 You can also see me dancing and mingling in the background during the rest of the ballroom scene. I even appeared on MTV when they showed a clip from the movie (the ability to record future shows based on keywords has to be one of the best features of Media Center… I don’t normally watch MTV hoping to find random clips of movies I might be in… it’s nice when they just appear for me in Recorded TV).
Who’s that woman in the middle? Oh, yeah, that’s Julia Roberts.
