THE ‘JOHNNY -VS- WALDO’ ROLE (OTE: $107,500)

Johnny-vs-Waldo.png

One of seven children, Johnny Cash was born in Arkansas on February 26, 1932 and grew up on his family farm.
The Cash family made a very modest living in the cotton fields … a job Johnny was introduced to at the tender age of 5!

46 years later … and following significant financial success as a country singer … Johnny had built the “House of Cash” on a farm, 25 miles outside Nashville – where he kept exotic animals.

The winter of 1981 was exceptionally harsh … and as such, Johnny decided to move his animals into shelters to help them survive.

Johnny approached his 7-foot ostrich – Waldo, but it was clear the bird wasn’t in a co-operative mood.

As Johnny cornered the bird, Waldo leaped into the air … delivering a brutal kick … splitting Johnny’s stomach wide-open. The force of Waldo’s kick resulted in 5 broken ribs and internal bleeding.

THE ‘DONNIE BRASCO’ ROLE (OTE: $100,000 – $110,000)

DonnieBrasco.png

Joe Pistone was born in 1939 in Erie, Pennsylvania but …. grew up in Paterson, New Jersey.

At the age of 30, he joined the FBI … and since he knew how to drive an 18-wheeler, he was assigned to the truck hi-jacking squad.

Pistone’s ability to penetrate this crime ring led to the arrest of more than 30 criminals!
But more importantly … Joe demonstrated his potential for his next mission.

In September 1976 … Joe Pistone exited his local FBI office … and ‘vanished’ for six years!
Long story short, under the alias of ‘Donnie Brasco’ … he infiltrated the New York Mafia’s Bonanno Family.

His contribution led to 200 indictments … and more than 100 convictions!

THE ‘UN-BELIEVE-IT’ ROLE (OTE: $135,000 – $170,000+)

unbelieveit.png

Growing up the son of Croatian immigrants … my life was full of unique experiences.
And, from what I could tell … these experiences weren’t typically afforded to other kids in my neighbourhood.

You see, by the age of 11 … my parents expected my sisters and I to be able to ‘handle things’ for them.

These ‘things’ included writing letters on their behalf … renewing insurance policies … calling Sears to schedule a repairman … and reading and filing the mail – among others!

One advantage of growing up in our house was the exposure to words that weren’t exactly English … or Croatian, for that matter.

One of my father’s classics was (and still is) … “un-believe-it”.
If the Leafs won … he’d shout “un-believe-it”.
Come to think of it, if they lost … he’d shout “un-believe-it” too!

We never knew if he really meant to say ‘unbelievable’ … or ‘I don’t believe it’ … or ‘I can’t believe it’. Whatever the case … he used it a lot!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well, nothing really.

That said, when it comes to this Vancouver-based role … my dad would definitely say it’s … ‘un-believe-it’!
