I was cast as the lead in a commercial for ESPN AUDIO with SVP & Russillo. The shoot went great and the guys were awesome. I had an amazing time on set just hanging with Scott & Ryen shooting da Breeze’. It was a large shoot up in bristol connecticut. The guys rip my character to pieces for thinking he can get the hot chick at the bar. Tons of fun. Everyone was great from the agency, ESPN, the crew, and the awesome director Chris
