As with just about every one this time of year, life has been at warp speed with our two children’s graduations. One has finished college, and the other is just beginning. For our long time customers and for those who are new who care, our son Ben just finished his Theatre and Film degree from USC in LA, and has just lined up a couple of gigs which is a great jump start to his career. He’ll be playing something of a boyfriend to Rashida Jones (lucky him) in a new Fox comedy series called, “Rules for Starting Over.” It’s a funny short bit that was filmed at the Boston Garden during an NBA game last month. The show has been picked up for 12 episodes, and the writers for this new Farrelly Brothers (you know, the Dumb and Dumber and Something About Mary guys) TV series are going to write Ben back into an episode or two as a “stalker” of Rashida. Again, lucky him. Click here if you’d like to view a few scenes from the first episode. For those of you who don’t know who Ben is, he’s a definite product of Marsha and I, standing a tall 5’2″! Hopefully, the “comic” in him will land him some new comedic roles. We’ll keep you informed of when the show will air.
