Landed 2 movie roles + 2 other jobs within 3 months of joining Since joining Explore Talent you would not believe the responses I've been getting from directors, producers. The jobs I have landed and am getting ready to start filming are phenomenal. I've had the distinct pleasure of working on the sets of The Kingdom-starring Jamie Fox. Netherbeast Incorporated starring Robert Wagner, Darrell Hammond, Lori Singer, Dave Foley, Steve Burns and Judd Nelson. I also am planning to do a commercial for an International insurance company. I have also done some smaller roles as being in a movie called Life Room directed by Eric Ray and finally got up the confidence to do a stand up comedy routine at a local comedy club. I don't know what kind of special magic explore talent brings to those who decide to pursue their dreams but I do know now that your never too old and explore talent is just what you need to get the ball rolling.
