Yo! Da check’s in da mail

Like so many commercial and film gigs, one usually doesn’t get paid right away for lending their talent on camera. More often than not it can be several months before one receives a paycheck and it’s usually when one doesn’t expect it or one has completely forgotten about it.

Well, this ONE got his check from being an background extra on the Sopranos a couple of weeks ago. How thrilling it was to find this in the mail today. It’s not a lot of money, but hey, it’s something. I think I’m more excited by the fact that it says “Sopranos” on it. Never in a million years would I ever think of being on the Sopranos payroll – well, affiliated in some way with it.

People usually frame their first dollar they ever made. I’m framing my first Sopranos check, albeit in Cyberspace.
