Thursday 8/26/10 11:00am – I go to Capital records to record my line in the pre-taped opening segment. Never been there before. Although I recorded my part in a small “closet,” I was able to check out the room where Sinatra recorded.
Saturday 8/28/10 8:30am – I’m picked up to go to the Nokia Theatre to shoot the opener. Learn the live choreography and rehearse it on the stage. I share a dressing room with Jon Hamm, Joel McHale, Randy Jackson, and Tim Gunn. I’m wrapped at about 7-7:30.
2:45 Arrive at the red carpet. (I have one hour before my call time). I do interview stuff and get held up a little at the still photo line which is all the way at the end. You can see I’m anxious because I have my foot out in every picture ready to take the next step to move over.
Quick change,hair and makeup, “cast to the stage”
and it’s over before you know it.
