  19. For me, the art of acting lies within the moments between the dialogue. Those instantaneous moments created amidst the silence are the ones that can be the most profound. I love acting because manifesting these instances out of nothing and witnessing an audience respond and feeling an emotional reaction within yourself simultaneously is when you know something transcendent is happening! And the beauty of these moments is that they can be created a thousand times a day in everyday life. That is all acting is. That’s exactly what you need from an extra.

    Hi, my name is Eddie Blackman and i want to start off saying that though i am not familiar with the show, I would love learn more about this show and to join the project to launch my acting career. I do love detective-type shows — the suspense, character, and thrill does in fact excite me.

    I have a wonderful and charismatic personality and my only regret is not being a part of this show when it started. But i have a lot of dedication and am a hard worker. It would be an honor to be apart of this production.
    I am 5’7″, 144 lbs, African-American, Acting experience from Michigan State and Bowling Green State, I live in Saint Clair Shores, MI and would not mind to travel. I am also 24 years old and am ready to start my acting career of a lifetime. Please email that way i can send a headshot and my actor’s resume.
