Okay, I know it's been awhile, but my life has been catapulted into the ionosphere of super-stardom, all but erasing any free time (or interest) I have for non-stardom related things, like writing.
So you're asking, "Scooter, you were already a star in our eyes, how could you possibly go any higher?" I knew you were going to ask that. Here's what's been happening in my life while you've been doing whatever you do, wherever you do it.
After a famous talent scout saw my photo on this site, I was signed to do what went on to become the most famous men's yogurt ad in the history of advertising. Literally within hours of this ad going live (insider media term), my phone was blowing up (Hollywood code for "ringing more often than usual"). Like Marylin Monroe appearing in Playboy or The Beatle's first performance on the Ed Sullivan Show, the American public was suddenly gaga (regular, not Lady) over this fresh face. I needed an agent, and fast.
Enter Harvey Blechstein, Agent To The Starstm. Harvey's credentials couldn't be more impressive - he's a flaming homo, single-handedly made Corey Feldman a household name, and took Macaulay Culkin to the next level after the Home Alone films. The fact Harvey was quick to recognize my star power also didn't hurt, as he was the first agent to blow my phone. Up.
Within days of signing with HBATTS, I was being showered with movie offers, but neither had the gravitas (Hollywood insider lingo for "mojo" which is celebrity slang for "coolness that is indescribable") that I was seeking. Then, a freaking home run - a major role in only the biggest picture in the last thousand years - Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Ka-ching!
And just like that, yours truly went from a being a common well-known and respected celebrity writer to one of this generation's hottest stars.
