Had an awesome time a couple weeks ago on set for K5 Kids, a company that is about providing parents a safe, fun, and powerful content for kids. We shot a commercial out of Franklin, TN, where I played the role of a Dad. We were surrounded by kids, where we all had a blast! Hopefully, You and I will see the commercial in showing all the great things K5 Kids are doing.
What an incredible weekend. I was invited last minute by my best friend, Davey Denton, to attend the MLB All Star weekend fesitivities. Davey has been to about 6 All-Star games as his brother, Jamie Denton, played in the annual celebrity softball game.
At the Futures game, I sat next to Larry Fitzgerald’s younger brother, Marcus. Marcus was super nice and now lives in Phoenix with his brother. The Home Run Derby was awesome to see Robinson Cano hit home runs from pitches tossed by his dad. At the All Star game, we sat with the group that participated in the celebrity softball game. Tom Papa, host of the “Marriage Ref” was funny and personable. He made fun of my huge TCBY yogurt cone. Dave Annable, actor from “Brothers & Sisters” was a really kind as well. How many actors say when their headed to the concession stand, “Can I get you anything?” Really?
Lastly, another guy that I met at the hotel lounge area, Chris Pratt, who is Andy Dwyer on “Parks and Recreation,” and stars in the upcoming baseball flick “Moneyball”, was really down to earth, asking if we wanted to hang out and made room for us. You can’t always say things like this about actors, but these guys really didn’t let their status get in the way. And honestly, Jamie is the same way. Willing to take picture after picture with fans.
