Marco Perella is a very successful actor. Which is not to say that he is a famous actor. The co-star in some made-for-TV movies, a bit player in major Hollywood productions, guest star on a late night cable TV series-Marco has seen every aspect of what is, by anyone's account, an absurd business. Whether he has been hired to float down the Guadalupe River dressed in a Jester's suit, recruited to teach Kevin Costner how to dance, or paid $250 to stand in front of a plate glass window while a runaway convertible hurtles through it, screeching to a halt only inches from his body, Marco Perella has met his acting challenges head on. In Adventures of a No Name Actor, he recounts his experiences with a storyteller's eye for detail and a Texan's light touch, proving that you don't have to be famous to be funny.
The author provides a hilarious glimpse into the world of acting by sharing his amusing experiences in and out of Hollywood, from teaching Kevin Costner to dance and playing a psychotic killer to floating down the Guadalupe River dressed in a Jester's suit, and reveals the true nature of some of the stars he has worked with including Drew Barrymore and Oliver Stone. 15,000 first printing.
