MUSIC VIDEOS – Update

 

Somehow in the last few years I have played minor and major roles, including leads, in a number of music videos.

 

SUBMARINES

Most recent is a video for The Lumineers, an extremely popular folk-rock group. It’s animation, beginning and ending with me in rotoscoped splendor. (If anyone knows where I can get a cap like the one I wore, please let me know). My sections were filmed on the Lower East Side of  New York:

IN MY ARMS

Gentleman is a German reggae performer who sings in English. I’m in the section beginning at 2:13 and at the end, sometimes playing basketball. At one point I got a basket, and the cameraman, who was under the basket, got bopped on the head (not seriously hurt):

DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?

I responded to a casting notice when I had just started acting in films, and got the non-paying job of the laid-off worker (at 7:38). I was astonished that my role was so prominent. Newburgh, NY, by the way, stood in for Detroit. It’s too bad this very good song about the Recession didn’t get wider play:

OUTTA CONTROL

This was filmed in a funeral home, although it’s just supposed to be my character’s home. At the end it’s kind of poignant:

SHAKE IT LIKE AN ETCH-A-SKETCH

Participating in this was my contribution to the 2012 presidential campaign. I appear as one of the dancing Koch Brothers. I expected this to be really popular but it wasn’t, even though it was recommended in Huffington Post:

WHERE THERE IS LOVE

I’m one of the lonely people in this:

FOLLOW THE SIGNS

Not to be believed if you haven’t seen it—Born of Osiris is a progressive death metal band. This has had nearly 2 million views. I’m mainly at 3:44, becoming a reptile:

THE WORLD

This is the only hip-hop video I’ve done; the artist is Jah-K. I’m the asylum director:
