Home Again

Anne and I are back from the AVON 3 Day.
Our feet are as sore as you’d think, Anne hyper-extended her knee, and I really messed up the arch ofmy right foot…but it was the most amazing experience I have ever had in my life. It was absolutely life-changing, and I can’t wait to write all about it.
It will be several days before I can, though, because when I got home, I found out that I had been cast in a movie.
That’s right.
Just when I decide that I’m not going to be an actor any more, I go and get cast in a movie.
As the lead.
I am number one on the call sheet, and everything!
I had my first day today, and I will work every day on the production, right up until my anniversary in November…so I fear that entries in the old WWDN Weblog will be shorter, more diary-like, some updates on the movie and stuff.
Right now, I am exhausted, and I have to go to sleep. More updated information about the film and the walk when I have some time.
Oh, I am going to be on Screen Savers on Wednesday. It should be a really funny segment, so check it out.
Unless you’re not into funny tech stuff, and babes. In that case, you’d probably be better off watching Maisy.
Know what’s weird? I had Chinese take out with the kids a few weeks ago, and my fortune said:

“All your hard work is about to pay off.”

  1. Congratulations Wil!!
    So, any chance we, your loyal web monkeys and army of conquest(tm) in training, can get a little bit of info about the movie? Just the name, or a basic gist of what the story is (Wil is the cooler-than-Bond star who stops a madman from taking over the world??) or even who else is in it?
    If you’re not allowed to disclose anything because of a studio agreement then i suppose we’ll just have to go snoop on our own 😉

    Good job on doing the good work this weekend. Congratulations from this new monkey on the new movie. Remember, even if you did stop acting, you could never stop being an actor!

  3. Wil,
    Congratulations on the movie deal, also on the walk. Hope to hear more from you soon. Take care of yourself.
    best to you and your family……

  4. Hey — pardon my stupidity, but can someone tell me how I watch “screen savers”? Is techtv only online or is it some cable channel that I don’t have??
    Thanks in advance!

  5. Congratulations! I’m stoked for you, as I’m sure you can tell we all are. Me personally, I’m hoping you play more bad guys.

  6. Hey, I *like* the funny tech stuff and babes as much as the next Wheaton, but I have a 15-month old, so Maisy *has* to be on the TV when it comes on.

  7. AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations. See, you just when you decide you were wrong, someone went and showed you that you were wrong about that, too!! Don’t you know the rules about being married?!
    You are a great actor. We would all be very happy to support you in whatever you do. Just tell us how to help!! Congrats Again!

  8. …although I just thought of something…
    Wil arrives at the film studio.
    WIL: Hi, I’m here for the movie. I’m playing the lead.
    COSTUMIER: Excellent, Mr Wheaton. You can try on your pencil outfit in a moment.

  9. Wow, I’m glad to hear it.
    Just started reading here recently on advice of friends. I think it’s time that W.W. fans had something new!

  10. it must have been the karma.
    very happy for you! and me cause now I get to say – hey look at the head monkey in surround sound.

  11. That’s amazing. Best of luck to you!
    When I went to my favourite Chinese restaurant last Friday, I got *four* fortunes in one cookie. They were all positive and meaningful. Let’s hope they are indeed prophetic… :)

  12. This sounds like a Twilight Zone ep. An out of work actor (played by Mickey Rooney) discovers the eerie connection between the condition of his feet and his career.
    Let’s do a little experiment. Got a hammer? We’ll start with your left little toe and wait for the results.

  13. Congratulations! Sometimes the universe sneaks up on you with the cool stuff when you’re least expecting it.
    Looking forward to Screen Savers tonight. I think it’s more than a little ironic that–in my area at least–it’s on at the same time as Enterprise.

  14. Welcome home, Wil. You better not be joking about the movie like your Enterprise April Fools or I’ll have to come kick your ass. :) Seriously, I’m really happy for you. Things in life usually happen when you stop trying so hard to make them happen. I hope that you continue your writing even when being a big star (TM) because you’re so talented.
    Thanks to you and Anne for your commitment to helping breast cancer research. You rawk!

  15. I know everyone else has said this but, Congrats Wil. It’s about time someone woke up and saw that you have talent. Wait to go on the walk too, to both you and Anne.

  16. I’ll be the millionth person to say this but who cares…
    Congrats Wil! That’s just fantastic!
    The universe can work in a strange way sometimes…
    Awesome work on the walk too!

  17. Awww, I had chinese for lunch and my fortune only said “You will find love on Flag Day”……wait, there’s something Awful familiar about this situation…. 😉

  18. go, wil.
    holy shit. uhm. i’ve just now decided that i’m not gonna be a multi-billionaire and world dictator anymore.
    *wait* *wait* *wait*

  19. Wil,
    Glad you had a nice trip. Does the lack of constant film acting make you rusty? Anyway, good luck on your new film.

  20. congrats….
    I had a chinese fortune cookie last couple weeks ago too…know what it said?
    nothing…no fortune at all…I got screwed

  21. Double congratulations on the walk and the movie.
    Let us know what the final tally for the walk turns out to be. I know there’s money that comes in after they post the last total on your homepage.
    Your “Twice in a Lifetime” episode was just on again the other day. You were pretty good in that role. I was thinking how nice it would be to see you act again and “boom!” you get a job.
    Again, congratulations!

  22. Just when I decide that I’m not going to be an actor any more, I go and get cast in a movie.
    As the lead.

    I’m proud to say I TOLD YOU SO!!!!
