I'm not sure nodding counts. I do a great job being a random dude.
Check it out... my spot starts at 1:29 and goes all the way to 1:30.5
I actually had a line, but I'm not a very good actor, and I'm glad they cut it... I think it's creative and lil funny they still put a random scene there. I did suggest the "Dirty glass for a dirty job" line though.
Booklamp's neighbors, Yellow Box Studio, did the short film for a 48 hour film festival. There were 50-someodd entries ($50/ea), and participants receive a genre, character, prop, and one line of dialog - each of these must be used in the film... all music must be original. And you have 48 hours to submit your short film.
Title: "Marshall Law"
Character: Casper Marshall, Attorney
Prop: white angel statuete
Dialog: "It's not like they're going to arrest you."

16 films made the showing last Sunday Night and "Marshall Law" was one of them. I'd've guessed there wer 2-300 people (or more) in attendance. Yellow Box got an award for best cinematography, and I walked down with them anyways... that was kinda cool. I wonder if anybody was like, "hey, that's the random bartender with a coat and tie and no shirt." ... Actually that scene did draw a good laugh from the audience.
I'm happy they guys at Yellow Box let me hang around and help out where I could. I held some lights and a diffuser and some other random stuff. It was a good time.
