This Athlete Turned Actor Won a Meeting With a Hollywood Casting Director (VIDEO)

Alex Weber and UPenn and Hollywood actor adviceBack in October, we started our “An Actor’s Path” vlog series with Penn alum Alex Weber (C’09, Lacrosse).

Just a few months in LA, Alex is definitely being very proactive with his career.  Last month he got his new headshots and this month he signed with a print agency and got his new comp cards (see image to right).  Plus he won an athletic contest to meet a Hollywood casting director.

Per Alex, this month,

“After finishing the play and coming back from the holidays, I’m looking to pursue as many opportunities as I can in pilot season. Always trying to gain exposure and fortunate to have been selected from a casting call to work with a production company that combines sports in films (see pic below). Also enrolling at additional acting studios to receive different techniques and training.”

Listen to more of what he has to say in his vlog above!
