DS is doing a mini-semester in Philadelphia and called last week to say he had been picked as an extra in the filming for "Rocky 6." They were filming in City Hall that day and he happened to be working there. They asked who wanted to be in a movie and he and a few friends jumped at the chance.

He said they spent the better part of the next few hours walking up and down in front of City Hall. He decided rather than walk around aimlessly that he'd wander around beside Sylvester Stallone. I guess he figured if anything from the shoot was used, the shots with Stallone in them might make the cut -- smart boy, Mama didn't raise a fool! So he just walked either next to or behind Stallone the whole time.

When they finished, Stallone turned and shook his hand and said "Thanks a lot." He got a few pictures of him from close up too. So it was a pretty neat day. Who knows whether his scene will make the final cut, but it was a good experience for him and he enjoyed being part of the whole process.

He had done several short films in high school with several friends and has always been fascinated with filmmaking so he loved watching how they shot the film. For example, Stallone is relatively short so they shot most of the shots of him from ground level looking up to make him appear taller.

So I guess I'll have to go watch "Rocky 6" whenever it gets released -- who knew there was even a 4 or 5? I kind of lost count!

How fun!!! Be sure to let us know if you see him in the final cut. I can't promise I'll go see it in the theatre, but I would certainly rent it to catch the part with your son!!
