Classy Moves – “Breaking Bad”
Yesterday my manager called… Apparently the production of “Breaking Bad” wants to send me something, as a thank you, for choosing to be part of their show. I don’t know if it’s a note, or a small bag of crystal blue meth… And it really doesn’t matter… I so appreciate the thought, and how classy the production and people of the show have been all the way through.
It really doesn’t take much to make people happy in this world, to acknowledge and validate others. I hope I’ve learned from the nicest, most classy ones, and always remember to follow their examples.
Do you have an example you’d like to share in the comment section below? Something I can learn from?

- 3rd Rock From The Sun… Jon Lithgow, invited the entire cast to his dressing room before the live taping and gave the guest cast a sketch of the episode. The show followed up with thank you & Holiday Card.
- JJ Abrams, sent a thank you note after I worked on Alias.
- On the set of The Glades, Ron Underwood, the director, sat with me at lunch, and we chatted undisturbed. The next day I worked, he came up to me and mentioned all the Closet Singer songs he had watched.
- I worked one-day, with one line on the movie The Animal, with Rob Schneider, and the production sent me a cast jacket…
