Arthur Kade's latest ramble, for your enjoyment:
I remember the first time I had sex it felt amazing (The girl I was with was also a virgin, so I was freaked out I would impregnate her because we went “Raw”), but I had no idea what I was doing, and no idea what it was going to feel like, and I remember feeling pure unadulterated terror as I tried to wiggle in and out, and figure out my lay of the land (It’s amazing how far I have come with this in 16 years because it comes so naturally now, although who knows after not having had sex in 6 months, but I think it would be interesting to sleep with that first girl again, and see how far both of us have come with our skills, because she was such a “Dead Lay” looking back, and the blood kind of freaked me out because I was a poor kid from The Northeast who didn’t understand a woman’s body), and every step of “The Journey” has been a similar experience whether it has been doing hit Reality TV, a Cable Project when I was in KA for a major network, My first speaking part in a film that will hopefully end up at some festivals to critical acclaim, and now I have been cast as a principal in a potential show that will be pitched as a pilot. When I walked out of our final read knowing the next steps were the promo shots, and then the filming of The Trailer, I just smiled knowing “The Journey” and my fans would now see the next step forming towards Little Oscar. I don’t feel that same fear that I had the first time sleeping with a girl, because “Old Arthur” got scared, while “New Arthur” creates history and a path for actors to follow for years to come and has to feel courage like pioneers before him (I was just watching a Documentary on Martin Luther King Jr. and was in awe of what he did, and feel that I can have the same level of impact on “The Biz”).
Last night, I was offered the part that I had now auditioned three times for in NYC, and my cast mates, and the writers and producers sat down for a two-hour long read in NYC to feel the energy and chemistry of what it would be like working together, and I think that the concept we are rocking is “Groundbreaking”, and so “Dynamic” that it may have a REAL chance to become hit television, and I am so pleased to be putting The Brand’s “Stamp of Endorsement” behind a revolutionary concept that features Arthur Kade and some VERY talented other actors.
It looks like we will be shooting The Trailer and potential episodes throughout the month of October (Nights and weekends which is perfect because I can party in NYC on weekends, and build more of a connection again to the place that I call me second home ((My first is Philly, and my third is KA)), and it will also allow me to work on other A Level projects since as my producer called me in the first audition, “It seems like you are really in demand”), and promo shots will be taken in September. The writers asked me if I would feel comfortable changing my hair color to something “More Blond”, and I told them my parent’s own a hair salon, so I think I will stop by this week or next week and go blonder (I wonder if this will me me look less Greek, and more “California Hunkish”, and how that will translate here on The East Coast, although I think I may look a little like Matt McConaughey when I do it, especially because I have put on 4Lbs’ of muscle in the last two weeks). I really believe this may be a project that propels Arthur Kade and the cast to a potential Emmy, and opens the door for us like Friends did for Jen, Dave, and Courtney (I thought it would take a year to get my first principal role in anything, and here I am at 5.788 months doing it “Kade Style”, although I’m not really surprised with me being me, and I am always tenacious and the best at anything I put my mind to).
In the meantime, today I will be working on a Film being directed by the guy who did Mulberry Road, and starring one of the actors from Gossip Girl in the lead, so I will play a Deputy in a scene with the main character which will give me incredible screen time and exposure in front of proven people (I am sure that once they see me in person they will probably gulp and say “Where did HE come from?”), so this will be an opportunity to continue the momentum that “The Journey” has built, and my destiny to my good friend, Oscar, who is waiting for me in the not-so distant future, waiting patiently for me to put my hands around him, and thank the world for the pleasure he has given me reaching my goal, and then look into the sky, and thank the fans of “The Journey” for all the support they have given and believing in greatness and innovation.
I have also been contacted to do an interview for my Alma Mater, Temple University’s School Newspaper (Alhtough, I am not a fan of “Small” media anymore because of my name and Brand, Temple holds an amzingly large place in my heart and my former professors must be watching “The Journey” realizing that somehow they were involved in my accomplishments and smiling saying, ‘I knew him when he was a kid coming to class in a $1,500 Armani suit, and then running out to model and dominate Neiman Marcus).
