Im in Canada,and its fuckin FREEZING!
Man where do I start,
I apologize for the long time between blogs, so I will make this a good one. After I finished the movie in New Orleans I went back to LA and took a second to regroup and reset for the new year. I had a kick back new years eve at my crib, had a bunch of people over and brought it in with family. The club scene in LAis cooked and burnt up so that was NOT an option. Jokes and food and lots and lots of henessy went around and it was a great evening. Let me rewind the tape a little and tell you about my hair cut. One day I got up and took my braids down and was about to make the call to get it re braided I looked in the mirror and put the phone down and picked up the clippers. I cut my hair myself to a little afro. I gotta tell you after Icut it and took a shower I felt preety fuckin good. After 10 years of braids I felt like it was time.
Now after that I got a call from my agents about a Oliver Stone movie named "Pinkville" and there was a part that would be good for me, I got the script and loved it. I went in to read for Oliver 2times beforeI got the offer, I was hyped to travel and do a war film with Oliver Stone because he knows that world so vividly. Well 2 days before we are supposed to get on the plane, I get the call that the movie had been put on hold because of the writers strike. Even though the script had been complete, changes were requested on some of the dialouge and you cant do that wthout writers, everyone agreed and stood on the side of the writers and supported the decision. I got a call a few days later about the new X FILES movie being directed by Chris Carter and he heard I was coming in and flew down to meet me and watch me read. I meet Chris and talked to him about music. I was shocked to see he had heard the song I did "YEAR 2000" where I mention the X FILES in the 3rd verse. He was very direct and nice to deal with, a little while later I got the call to pack my bags for Canada. So here I am writing to all my folks in a ski resort 3hours from Vancouver, Its beautiful but cold. like 15 below 0 cold,.....and Im standing it it.........in a suit........welcome to hollywood. LOL. All bullshit aside I am having a great time. David Ducovnny, Amanda Peet, Billy Conolly and Gillan Anderson are very cool and great people to work with.
The whole crew for that matter are some of the best people you can find, I mean its brick out side and these folks are our out there setting up lights and setting up cameras and shit, hours before they yell ACTION. They deserve every penny they get. I wont be back to LAtill March so I gotta good news flash for you when I get home, I will holla back at you guys asap.....thanks for stoppin in!!! If you wanna see what I look like in the film go XZIBIT.COM its on the main page...........
"ITS NOT HOW GOOD YOU ARE, ITS HOW BAD YOU WANT IT"
Bored @ lunch........
For those that didnt read the caption...(you wouldnt belive just HOW many there are!!!) I am doing a movie in Canada right now, and thats why im dressed like that in the default picture. I actually had a couple of people ask me seriously if I was working with law enforcement. Those are little signs that people slowly but surely people are forgetting how to read, and JUST look at the pictures. scary. Any way im going back to set, Its a night scene.....its 13 below zero and we are shooting outside. wish me luck.
X FILES 2 .....IN THEATERS JULY 25TH.........xXx
