    You know what an Extra is in film/television? It's just some random person who gets paid only like 50 bucks or so to just stand in the background and blend in, or walk by the main character. Basically someone who gets around 5 seconds of screen time. And there's obviously no money in that job.... or is there?
    Believe it or not, this 32 year old, has been in over 50 films and tv shows combined.

    I don't know what's more impressive; the fact that the guy has made it into so many shows and movies as an extra, or that somebody took the time to find him in every single shot shown.

    Wow. He was in.. all of those movies? He basically made 2500 dollars by standing in the background for approximately 4-8 minutes of his life. Wow.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's a lot more with the resume he has under his belt.

    lol I usually recognize this guy whenever I see him. I remember seeing him on That's So Raven way back in middle school and then in other random films and tv shows.

    off topic, anyone else annoyed by lux aeterna remixes (like the one in the video), or is it just me? i mean, i love the original one, but the remixes are just annoying to me *shrug*

    I swear to God, I barely read that and the first thing that I thought of was this guy.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Now I realize that it was a little different. That'll learn me!

    That's why he started doing this. He graduated with an English degree....
