and dolls, Arrow here! Have been in
So this is Budapest eh?
Finally they also pull semi Hostels on tourists and it happened to me last night. I was out at around midnight coming back from supper and two hot chicks stepped up to me! Lucky that Mr. Red warned me that girls here were hired to lure obvious tourists like myself into particular bars that are in cahoots with them. The scam is; once there the dames have you buy them drinks, of course the drinks at this bar cost a ludicrous amount of money; so when its time to pay your tab you get a surprise. If you dont pay, huge dudes beat the shit out of you. What about cops? Well theyre on the take hence no help from them! I usually follow my dick but on this run the warning and the sluts obviously rehearsed dialogue made me walk the other way. Come on gals! You got to come up with better shit than that to fool my sorry ass! Im a horror fan! I know all the tricks! Was mucho creepy though. A first for me! F*cking whores!
Beware of this street - yummy yet evil whores roam here.
100 Feet wise, well its my kind of set, not too big that you get lost in the shuffle and not too small that its two dudes and a raccoon shooting a film. The people surrounding me have been groovy-o for the most part, no complaints from this jerk. Anyways today was the day that I shot my dialogue driven scene with Famke Janssen and Bobby Cannavale. First up was costume; as I slapped my gear on I couldnt help but notice that it was basically the same outfit that I wore for my blink and miss stint on SAW II except this dude (Jimmy) wore a baseball cap.

Now that I think of it Jimmy is Video Techie (My name in SAW II; great name; explains the two lines...lol!) but fleshed out. They both dress the same; both are cops, both experts in computers/electronics, they both can't act. I finally get to explore that character further yippee! Now to be honest, I was somewhat anxious today. I had to deliver, against Famke Janssen at that! The dame is a star the biggest star I ever acted with - Im a guy they call The Arrow. You do the f*cking math! The fact that I had no food in my belly and had too much coffee running through my veins didn't help my jitters either. I was jumpy to say the least.
I've just seen a GHOST!
Bobby Cannavalle and a twat!
I actually purposely avoided Famke on set before I did my scene since my character never saw her before he enters the house; I wanted to provoke an organic reaction to her in the scene. Did it work? Probably not, but it was worth a shot in a fancy pants acting trick kind of way. The scene itself was set in Marnies house (a brilliantly constructed, gothic looking, house set staged in a Studio here in Budapest) and the jest of it was me getting in there with my gear (ankle bracelet, dildos "joke" and HUGE ASS base unit) and explaining to Marnie how her home incarceration works while fending off a-hole quips from Detective Shanks (Cannavale).
Me and Vilma - great PA!
How did this clown get on our set she asks ; )
So the blocking for the scene acted as my rehearsal time and during it I realized I was TOO tense. Once done, I had some time alone in my trailer as they set up the scene (lights, cameras what not) and I wound up remembering this convo Eric Red and I had with Michael Pare (who plays the ghost in the film) the night before at some slick cigar bar. Pare was talking about meditation. Now Im not the meditation type, I smoke, drink and f*ck; but I gave it a shot and you now what, Pare was right.
