My Big Break
Now the introduction is out of the way, I can get to the great news I have to share.
Let me start from the beginning, it was Tuesday 28th February. I had just finished my 300 sit-ups for the day and was getting ready for bed. Unexpectedly my agent got in contact. He had a gig for me! Finally, I was being offered a role befitting an actor of my prominence.

I can tell you, the role is the lead in an action adventure movie. I’m comfortable with that and have, of course, significant experience of carrying a production.
It’s a fun movie, but also a study of behaviour. It is about how one deals with the changing nature of one’s appearance. I will be a normal, everyday Gonk, who over time transitions into a large furry creature. It sounds like an amalgamation of The Incredible Shrinking Man, and the movie, Harvey.
I will be, with my vast experience of playing multiple characters, well within my element. I can see why they picked me. I expect I was head-hunted. The production team discarding Hollywood actors, one by one, as they simmered down to the right person for the role. Until there was just me.
I told my agent that I would take the job. He said they already had a preliminary contract. It even includes free lunch for me. That let me know how serious they were about getting me on board. As you can tell, I’m pretty chuffed about it all. Smile when you can is what I say!
I’m not going to let it go to my head. I’ll stay cool. When I’m famous I’ll be the same Gonk as I am today.
I have taken the liberty of uploading the two images above. They may be worth some money in future.
I would also like to give early warning that, should all go well, I’ll be moving on.
Look out for me on the big screen.
To be honest, I was always destined for stardom. But enough about me.
