                Top Ten Reasons Why Seniors Make Great Actors
                                            (for the Senior Channel)

I actor!  And as I no longer have an agent - my third just passed away - I am using this lovely forum on the Senior Channel to let everyone know that, contrary to popular belief, I am still alive and looking for work!  

To let all interested parties in on a not-so-secret secret, I have collected the top ten reasons why seniors make great actors - and why all roles should be given to age appropriate thespians!  In other words, don't use a fifty-year old with horrible aged make-up when you can get an eighty year old who is truly ravaged!  It not only saves on make-up and the time applying it - the legimate older person has true experiences, that can never be duplicated or imitated!

So, as dear David Letterman says, without further ado, here is reason number 10 why seniors make great actors.....we can repeat a story endlessly!

Which brings us to nine......we really don't care if no one is listening......

Number eight - we can repeat a story endlessly

Number seven - we never worry about dying onstage ..... 

Number six - we have been acting for years - pretending to like the in-laws.....

Number five - we can repeat a story endlessly.....did I tell you this before?

Number four -  you can pay us in Flomax and prune juice...

Number three - We don't mind nude scenes......wait, did you say 'new' or NUDE?

Number two -  We actually knew Shakespeare ....personally

           (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Almost forgot!  and the number one reason -  drum can bet we didn't have to screw anyone to get the part!

           (Exits, waving, hopefully to a new part)
