I just realized, it’s about 30 years to the day that I had one of my first brushes with greatness–when I got a call-back for auditions at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge for Jaws II. (Does anyone even remember Jaws II? Anyway, they were in pre-production, and I almost got to play one of the hapless teenage stooges who gets eaten by the plastic shark.)

Sadly, I did not proceed past that second cut–otherwise I’d be sitting on a beach in Santa Monica right now.
