One More Minute of Fame

Sometime around 2006, I worked as a movie extra in Vancouver. I love films (and have begun to make them!) and loved seeing the behind the scenes work. I had (extremely!!!) small roles (hah hah!) in Smallville, Catwoman, X-Men 3, and I, Robot.

Today, a movie I am in was released: The Butterfly on a Wheel. Or The Butterfly. Or Shattered... Depending in which country it was released. It was also released straight to DVD, which says something about it's quality. It stars Pierce Brosnan (James Bond himself) and Gerard Butler (300, Phantom of the Opera).


I saw it and found myself. These stills from the film tell the whole story:

Gerard Butler is searching for a hotel room key without being seen.
Suddenly, a young gorgeous couple exit their hotel room and walk past him.
(I am on the right.)

...we walk past and Butler tries to hide...



...but I SEE HIM!!!

There you go! Another minute to add to my 15 minutes of Fame. That leaves only one film left that I am in that hasn't been released yet - 88 Minutes with Al Pacino...

Stay tuned...

I think the credits should more properly read: "It stars Peter Bond ("Tony's Empire", "Bluebell Woods") and also Pierce Brosnan (James Bond himself) and Gerard Butler (Phantom of the Opera)."

I blog with a movie star? I can really say that and not be a fibber??
Very cool.

Thank you guys, but I am hardly a movie star. My moment of fame lasted less then 7 seconds!

If 88 Minutes hasn't been released yet, how did I see it?

*confused*

Hi Michael,
I can understand your confusion. After doing some research, I found this on Wikipedia:

"Pirate problems

"The film was released on dvd in Israel in 2006. Pirate copies of the film spread throughout The UK and The US a year before the film was released in these countries. Release dates were halted and the films release was moved through to 2008."

The pirates strike again...

So anyway, how was it?
