5. Freestyle Yoga. Yes it will look weird to the other people in holding but it’s good to stay active especially when there’s a catered buffet meal being served after 6 hours. Stay limber, try the flank steak! 2. Tinder. Yes, you might as well start the search for Mrs. Right! Who knows she may even be in here today. Just set the distance parameters to 1km and swipe away. Cheryl, 32, loves to bake and adores horses. Drinks wine like a fish and owns a cottage. What’re the odds! A match made in holding! She could be three tables over eating flank steak and studying for her real estate license. 10. Call Rogers. Those bastards are overcharging you anyways. Call and complain. When you get on the line with an agent just say ‘retention’ and threaten to go to Bell! You’re welcome! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment 8. Stock up. Tea. Stir sticks. Napkins. Oranges. Etc. I haven’t bought napkins in 11 years. Everyday take a small stack and start stockpiling in case shit goes south and you need to fill your nuclear bunker. Sip tea casually watching Friends reruns as the world burns. Advertisement 3. Write a novel. Call it: The Confused Ramblings Of No One In Particular! Try to shed some insight to laypeople about the goings on behind the scenes on film sets. The seedy underbelly of the industry where Stand Ins throw each other under the bus for a shot at the new series. Where DOPs and directors argue over minutiae. Where extras sneak off at lunch to auditions. Where the grips tell each other of their Tinder conquests!!! 7. Craigslist. Comb this site for random jobs to supplement your income. Sign up for that focus group on Tide Pods or help that old lady with yard work for 17$ per hour cash! You’re not gonna be on set on Saturday anyways. Get that money! Login/Register With: Twitter 6. Practice. Get the sides from the set box when no one is looking and run lines with that apprentice sitting next you. Hone your craft. Keep your knife sharp. You never know when the director is going to ask you to say, “No sir!” When the lead character asks you if the Chief Johnson is in his office (assuming you’re on a cop show in a precinct) Top Ten Things To Do On Set When You’re Bored: 1. Social Media. Facebook bud. Check this app every 45 seconds to avoid making eye contact or communicating with real people. Join Alien Conspiracy groups and post photos of the flank steak with #foodporn. You might as well hit Insta as well. Tweet that you just got booked on a sci-fi tv show as SWAT for tomorrow and it’s SSE. Snapchat a pic of you and Cheryl hitting it off. The possibilities are endless!!!#setlife #actorslife #freeoranges.SPECIAL THANKS TO NATHAN HOPPE FOR TODAY’S SMILE! 🙂 Advertisement Advertisement Facebook 4. Sell something. Look there’s 300 extras today. Join a MLM and pitch hair products to unassuming non-unions. Better yet, become an accountant and do people’s taxes so you can get that extra money and so they can realize that writing off nights out at the cinema as an actor is considered research and development. 9. Get you’re real estate license. You might as well create an exit strategy. Something to fall back on in case your dreams of becoming a series lead evaporate. You don’t want to banana forever.
