Acting & the Art of Being Yourself with Adrian Martinez
Being yourself in any situation in life is hard for many people. Actors do make a living playing other people but the art of being comfortable in your own skin is a lesson we can all learn. I invited on the show Adrian Martinez, a actor, writer, producer, and soon-to-be-director, with nearly 100 film and TV credits.
Adrian’s career began as a high school track star on NBC’s “Unsolved Mysteries“. Some in casting have called Adrian, “the sidekick to the stars,” as evidenced by his recent sidekick trifecta– Will Smith’s sidekick in Warner Bros’ “Focus,” Ben Stiller’s sidekick in his Fox remake of “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” Will Ferrell’s sidekick in Lionsgate’s “Casa de mi Padre,” to name a few.
Mr. Martinez’s TV work includes over forty guest spots, including a recurring guest star in CBS’ “A Gifted Man,” opposite Patrick Wilson, FX’s “Louie” opposite Louis CK, HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords,” “Sex and the City,” and is recurring on Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer.“
Adrian is currently making his directorial debut with the film “iCreep,” through his production company, Paloma Pictures.
I wanted have Adrian Martinez on the show to see if he would share some of his secret sauce for maintaining such a long and successful career…and he did. Whether your an actor, director, writer, or artist the knowledge bombs Adrian drops are massive.
BTW, this happens to be one of the funniest episodes I’ve ever done. Adrian is not only generous with his knowledge but he’s FUNNY AS HELL! Enjoy.
