Who’s Watching Our Cats?

According to The Onion, I am.
This is too cool!
I had an audition for John Doe again yesterday . . . but I didn’t nail it. I have a call for CSI later this afternoon.
Update: The role, which was about six lines, shoots tomorrow, and I haven’t heard anything, so it’s not happening. I’m actually sort of glad . . . if I’m going to be on CSI, I’d rather have a bigger role that I can do more cool stuff with. While I was out there, I ran into Scott Grimes, who I’ve known since childhood, but haven’t seen or spoken to in almost a decade. It was great to see him, and we made plans to get our families together for funtimes. So it wasn’t a total waste of time and miles on my car. ;)
Busy, busy, busy . . . and you expect me to watch your damn cats? There’d better be Anchor Steam Liberty Ale in the fridge, buddy.

  1. GO Wil GO!!! Glad to know you are keeping busy. *Happy busy Mojo* to ya! :) Break a Leg at the audition!

  2. Good luck with CSI! I will definitely, definitely watch you in that! CSI is the finest show on TV today. :)

  3. the question isn’t whether wils watching the cats.
    but are the cats watching wil?
    not sure what that means tho…
    kick some butt on CSI man….
    cheers

  4. CSI would be cool, just as long as your not the one that gets killed. But if you don’t get the job, i’m always looking for someone to watch my cat. Just kidding. I wish tons of good MOJO on your auditions.

  5. Wil, if you’re planning on watching my cats, you better pack some really warm clothes. They are strictly outside cats and the temperatures are going to drop below zero tonight.

  6. Good thoughts for you on your reading! I hope you get CSI-good show!
    I don’t have a cat-but if I had one you and Anne could watch it for me! No beer-but I make a great quiche!

  7. Hey wil. I don’t have any cats for you to watch, but my rat I’m sure gets lonely when i’m gone. :) But hell you can come over and have a beer with us anytime, but please if you do come over to watch my rat and bring a beer can you bring along Mr. Grimes? That would make me one happy monkey :D
    You knowing and hanging out with mr scott grimes makes me go all fangirly. funny I dont really do that over the mention of your name. . . . .

  8. Sorry to hear the possible CSI gig didn’t work. I get you when you say it would be better to get something with more meat though.
    Cool to connect up with good friends… nothing is more valuable than the true and lasting friendships that we hold throughout our lives.
    Have a good night.
    Ciao,

  9. Forget the cats! Watch my goldfish, instead! His name is Herman the Wonderfish, he’s 9 years old, and he thinks he’s a dog – waiting patiently by the corner of the tank until someone comes into the room, and then he literally leaps out of the water with fishie joy.
    He’ll provide you with hours of entertainment! He’s amazing! He’s fantastic! Wherever there is danger, he’ll be there! (OK, maybe that last one was a bit of a stretch… we’ll leave that part to Dangermouse.)

  10. Well, being as I am not an actor I can’t really say much about “only 6 lines”. If it were me myself, I’d bust my @$$ even for just 6 lines, only because I’m not a famous Celeb like you ;}
    I am glad to see, though, that you’re better than that, and you don’t whore yourself out to any and every director that comes along in order to get even the most remedial and dull parts of any script you can get your hands on. :}

  11. CSI seems to be unafraid of using actors that we recognize, (Jolene Blalock & Joey Slotnick have both been on) so this bodes well for you. Hope to see you on the streets of Vegas (or Miami) soon.

  12. Wil,
    I just want to stop in and say that I used up all my moderation points today on the /. article on Berman not being able to find his ass. And I mod’d up your post. hehehehe
    Rah!
    Seriously, as a fan, I think he’s bad for ST. *sigh*

  13. I hope we see Wil on CSI (and not “CSI: Miami”. Sorry, but I’m a huge CSI fan, and IMO, the Miami spin-off sucks.)
    Good Luck to ya!
    PS: if, by some twist of fate, you DO end up on “Miami”, do me a favor and tell the director some reasons why the medical examiner should be wearing some scrubs while operating on a corpse, (or should at least be wearing a face mask. It’s all about keepin’ it real, yo.)

  14. Wil
    after reading the update….I just want to say that I feel that you will get something big soon. I knock on wood for you. And about cats……beware of the black ones.

  15. You can watch my cat anytime.
    They even like the PAX network and 3DX infomercials.
    (tee-hee!)
    Rock on Wil, Much love from above.
    J.
    P.s. No anchor steam, just Black Butte Porter and Full sail Amber.

  16. You sure as heck don’t want to watch my feline bitches. Especially the fluffy one. She is psycho. But if she likes you, she’ll sit on you lap, WHETHER YOU WANT HER THERE OR NOT.

  17. Try sticking ‘cat’ and ‘wesley’ into Google.
    The site at the top of the list is for a lost cat. Second up is a guide on how to dissect cats.
    As you Americans say: “You do the math.”

  18. I am not really a fan of CSI. But if you get a role on it Wil, I will watch. Too bad about John Doe…I love that show.
    underdog

  19. Wil on CSI?
    what would the character be a a techno-geek?
    wow that’s a stretch :)
    I hope you get it, that’d make my favorite show even better! break a leg!

  20. Heh. I saw that on The Onion this morning, and came straight over to see what you thought.
    p.s. I hated you, but now you’re cool. I’m working on my friends.
    p.p.s. “WooHOO! First Comment!” on WWDN? How lame is that?

  21. You have to do CSI, just so you can report on whether Marg Helgenberger is as hot in person as she is on TV.
    You name the beer, it’s in the fridge.
    Much CSI mojo.

  22. Liberty Ale is, by far, the best IPA ever brewed. Not to dismiss Stone Brewery, but Anchor rocks.
    Liberty Ale is such a 1, it is almost a 2.

  23. 6 lines, that really sucks. There is always other auditions out there. Have you ever thought about doing voices for animated movies? And bye the way, if you watch my cat, i will make sure my fridge is fully stocked for you.

  24. CSI? Too cool! One of the best shows on tv. Well, if you are on it Wil, it will be time to finally force all my friends with bad taste in tv to actually watch it. 2 reasons for the price of one, as it were. Break a leg and all that.

  25. I’m glad that your not upset about the Csi audition. I swear if producers knew how to make a great show they would hire you. Oh, well, here’s looking to the future.

  26. Am I the ONLY person who’s never heard of CSI?
    Gads.
    What is it, anyway?
    We don’t get any good TV channels here in my Fortress of Solitude atop the Paraguayan Himalayas, I’m afraid.

  27. CSI Mojo…. hell here’s some John Doe mojo too (I like the show, but it has “limited run’ written all over it.)
    Now, what do you think about getting on your ‘evil persona’ duds and auditioning for a “designer drug” kingpin on “fastlane”?? :D

  28. I HAVE heard of it but NEVER watched it.
    Wil being on there would give me a GREAT reason
    to.
    (Not only are the cats watching the Monkeys are
    too!)
    MOJO!!!

  29. anyhow, here’s a little plug for ‘ya, wil… someone wrote about you on the Pop Candy chat today… posted on usatoday.com. what fun!
    Atlanta, GA: Hi Whitney. Jerry O’Connell and Corey Feldman have been on Jimmy Kimmel Live the last two nights. River Phoenix is no longer with us (maybe they could book Joaquin), but perhaps Wil Wheaton is looking for a place to plug his fine website. What do you think?
    Whitney Matheson: Well, young men are Jimmy’s target audience… look for appearances by Ralph Macchio, Alex Winter and Jon Cryer on future shows.

  30. Hmm, not sure how much fun it would be to watch our cat since he died last week.
    But hey, if all it takes is a few dozen Anchor Steam’s then we’re all good. Roll up!
    Although I am curious how you got chosen to be the celeb in the Statshot. Must have been a funny round table the editors had.

  31. I hope not to be annoying, but what about those political or at least critical and witty issues that used to be the highlights of your web site ?
    Not a single word about the worsening international situation, why ?
    Did you join the “the-sun-shines-bright-on-my-old-kentucky-home-I-don’t-mind-I-don’t-care community” ?????

  32. I really didn’t want Ashcroft spying on me, so I’m really grateful to you for sacrificing yourself and watching our cats.
    Thanks, Wil! And good luck with your auditions.
