October 2020

Welcome to FrankEramo.com

Since last I’ve been here on my site, I signed exclusively with a SAG•AFTRA agent for representation, in Atlanta.

I’ve worked several background gigs before the pandemic hit, and work halted. The most memorable set I worked on was the movie ‘Richard Jewel’ based on on Richard Jewel and the 1996 Olympic bombing here in Atlanta. Directed by Clint Eastwood, and starring Kathy Bates and Paul Walter Hauser. 

My scenes took place in a press conference scene with Kathy Bates, the scene in Olympic Park and a featured scene.  

The feature scene was myself, a principal actress, a Day Player and a few extras.

I was a fitted with wardrobe, as it was a period price. In the scene I was a dead man. I spent at least two hours in the hair and make up trailer, being applied with stab wounds, blood all over me and my finger bent back to create the illusion of a severed finger, and a severed finger that would be on my chest under my coat.

In the trailer I struck up a conversation with a women who was also being made up. I was clueless as to who she was, even after a conversation and her telling me her name, and where she live. 

She was in the scene with me, as I lay ‘dead’ and she talking about me, and my severed finger. At one point Clint Eastwood was straddling me looking down at me, something that doesn’t happen everyday.

When I got home and looked up the movie on IMDB, and saw that was Olivia Wilde, I kicked myself thinking she was a day player and all the time I’m carrying on a conversation with her. 
I was looking forward to the movie coming out, telling everyone to look for the “dead guy”. After all that i saw the movie, and not only was i dead man, but my scene was dead as well, as it was cut.

Everyone have a great October, fall & Halloween 🎃 

See y’all in November and preparing the Turkey 🦃
