Max Barry, Act-or

Syrup A clip from Syrup featuring my big-screen debut. Look at me rocking that role. You could totally believe I was a waiter. Some assistance provided by Amber Heard.

Here is the blog I wrote about filming that day, by the way, if you’d like to relive my gut-churning terror.

I totally thought you were really a waiter! Awesome.

I've finally got details on this "on-demand" thing and will post a blog shortly. Short version: it's a US-only thing where you can rent it via iTunes or some digital cable channels.

Er Max...you weren't playing a waiter you were playing a butler. At least that's how you come across.

Man, I'd start practising that Oscar acceptance speech immediately if I was you! The one for "Best Actor in a Non-Speaking Bit Part" I mean...
