Keep an eye on your valuables, because the third episode of Chestnut Casting is the Chestnuttiest one yet!

Question: If you were a struggling actor (like 97% of Hollywood residents*), and an influential casting director asked you personally to show up for an important audition, would you do it? Of course you would! And if that “audition” turned out to be a brazen daylight robbery, would you still do it? Hmm… that’s a tough one. Unfortunately, that’s exactly the tough one put to former-Bulbar-pupil Kyle (Scott Pitts) in the latest Chestnut Casting.

Before sending Kyle to do his dirty work, Chestnut (Ric Barbera) hits up his ol’ buddy Billy Bulbar (David Fickas) for cash and supplies. Maybe if Bulbar was more generous, poor Kyle wouldn’t be on the lam now. Oh, well! Chestnut also takes time out from his busy schedule to give some stellar advice to Bulbar’s current ingénue-of-choice, Evie St. Sinclair (Kate Maher). Meanwhile, Teena (Genna Ryan) and Jerry (Jeff Wiens) are stuck between a rock and a hard place, trying to figure out how to get egocentric actress Jilly Jane Prescott (Christine Lakin) to read on tape. Not easy to do when she thinks she’s already got the part. It’s a delicate situation… so it’s probably for the best that Chestnut is out, uh, “making deals” instead of back at the office, being indelicate.

The new episode, “Hustling,” is available now at, with more episodes of Chestnut Casting every Tuesday! So give it a watch, o viewer! We guarantee** it will give you the tools you need to be a better actor, a better celebrity actor, and a better person. As long as that person is a celebrity actor person.

Break a leg, froggies!
