WHEN FRIENDS ARE ACTORS...

A fellow co-worker and budding actor, my pal Josh Pesin took on a role in the upcoming Angelina Jolie flick "SALT" which is currently being filmed here in New York City. Never one to turn down a project, Josh has made his appearance in countless Hollywood films such as War of the Worlds and Revolutionary Road, along with television series' such as Law and Order and The Sopranos.


In this photo, Josh is accompanied by his fellow S.W.A.T. team members as they take a much-needed break from filming (and protecting) to pose for a photo. Josh will be prominently spotlighted in a scene where a funeral procession of the dead President of Russia is slowly making its way down Park Avenue as a BBC news reporter begins discussing the heightened security of the funeral. Josh states that he, along with a bunch of other S.W.A.T. team members (replete with rifles in hand), will be the heightened security that the main camera is focusing on as the reporter speaks.


I must admit, compared with his buddies, Josh portrays a member of NY's finest with a stern focus and believability. With an expanding resume that also includes 30 Rock and Fringe, Josh continues to work his way up into the arduous and abstruse world of showbiz. It's rather difficult not to be jealous of a man who was quite literally in arms-reach of one of the most stunning and talented actresses of our time.

Bravo to you Mr. Josh Pesin... for hard work (and a boat-load of tenacity) always pays off at the end.

Congrats to Josh on his rising career. I'm a little envious frankly, but it sounds like he has worked hard in such a terribly competitive industry so more power to him.

Can I sleep with him now before he becomes unattainable and a megastar?
