Talbot Perry Simons...Got the Part

Many actors take on other facets of filmmaking: directing, producing, sometimes even writing. But the true love of acting will not be ignored, so no matter how many hats they wear, they keep looking for chances to ply their favorite talent.Such was the case for Talbot Perry Simons, who was paging through Back Stage, looking for acting gigs even though he was keeping busy promoting a film he'd recently written, directed, and starred in. When he saw the notice for "Thursday's Speaker," a SAG Ultra Low Budget feature, he knew he'd found something that would let him do what he loved. "Acting's my favorite thing," Simons says. "It's why I made my own movie—so I could star in it. And I'd been so busy marketing, 'Thursday's Speaker' was the first project I'd submitted for in ages."In the film Simons plays the role of Hank, owner of a used-car lot. »
