I cast a major network sitcom.
No — not cast in. I helped cast one of the guest stars in last night’s episode of Up All Night.
Let me explain.
Earlier this year, Christina Applegate took to Twitter and asked her followers to suggest comedic actors for a project. Knowing most people would go with the obvious choices, I put forth a recent find:
I happened upon the actor a month or two before in the USA mini-series Marry Me, co-starring Lucy Liu. The movie wasn’t anything to write home about, but Pasquale was.
He took your typical made-for-TV romantic lead and turned it into something uniquely appealing. His timing was unique. I stuck with the mini-series — we’re talking four hours, people — because he made the expected and predictable extremely entertaining.
Christina later tweeted a thank you for our suggestions, saying she had received a couple of names that she didn’t recognize and planned to research.
And look who pops up on Up All Night??
It’s pretty gratifying, I admit. (Would be even more so with a finder’s fee.)
