James Bond on Letterman!

James Alexander Bond, my dear friend and director of many Richmond Shakespeare hits, is going to be on David Letterman on Monday night!

He's reading the top ten list, which is James Bond-themed. Apparently, the producers called James Bonds in New York to audition on Friday, and James lives 10 blocks from the studio. Also his middle name starts with "A," so he was the first one in the phone book.

There exists the possibility that the producers will pull him at the table read, but the gig is currently his. Don't miss it!

    I recorded it on my DVR and watched it early this morning. Classic "James A. Bond" work...he walked out looking a little like a deer in the headlights, but appeared to compose himself quickly, with only one mistake I saw, and not a big thing. Good job overall!

    And of course, they introduced him as a "substitute teacher", not director/survival job. Naturally, the "Top 10" is all about the writing, and they had a few good ones (Ex. - "When my brother introduces himself as "Bond, Fred Bond", he just looks like a jerk!")

    You're right...there was no pacing and whispering to an SM going on! It was like he was a POD person! AHHH!
