Today we left Dallas and headed straight to Roswell, NM.

Today we left Baton Rouge, LA to head towards Dallas, TX. At the last moment we decided to change hotels so that we could stay downtown Dallas.

We were able to see him in action along with Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan) and Matt Lanter (90210) and the scene we recorded is attached at the bottom.
