A star is born, kinda

Well, crap on a crap cracker. I could swear I blogged about this back when I first happened, but I've spent the last ten minutes searching back through old posts and I can't find anything about it. Apparently I was too busy writing about cats and wine and my own cranky self to take notice of this event.

Anyway, a bunch of years ago, like two or maybe even almost three, Fisher was selected via an arduous (cough) audition process to play a bit part in an indie film being shot in Grand Junction, called, fascinatingly enough, "Grand Junction." And when I say "indie" I mean like "hey, I've got a camera, let's put on a show!", not like Jim Jarmusch or anything.

So, as indie films often do, this one ran out of money and sank without a bubble. But this last week, the filmmaker (an amiable fellow named Joe) e-mailed Jim's mom (who had signed Fisher up for the audition in the first place) with a link to some (extremely) rough footage including a few (very) rough clips of Fisher.

He's the little blondie with the green eyes, in case you can't tell.

So after seeing this tiny bit, yeah, I guess it was probably a good thing the whole project was never finished, maybe. But don't you think Fisher's pretty adorable in his bit part as "Li'l Spence?" He's got a line and a Significant Look and everything!

The boys left today for twelve days in Colorado with Grandma & Grandpa. So I'm just going to watch this clip over and over so maybe I won't miss them, or at least Fisher, quite so much.

    That’s great–he’s darling!
    Twelve kid-free days? Are you serious? I don’t think I’ve spent 12 days total away from my kids in 15 years. We don’t have those kind of grandparents, unfortunately.

    How cute is he? ( THough I’m sure Cute is not an adjective he would want to describe him. )
    You want to borrow Caden for awhile while your boys are gone? I’d be willing to part with him, plus he’d get some nifty exposure to some good cooking…….whaddya think?

    This is coming out right before the Oscar deadline. Ahem. Coincidence? You decide.
    That is the best thing I’ve seen in weeks. I love the constant smirk. He actually looks like you when he does that (as opposed to being a daddy double).
