An Actor In Our Midst

joe final

Nobody got the right answer to last week’s little quiz. The correct answer is that Joe was the little boy in red in the cinematic masterpiece Three Men and a Baby. Here’s a short interview with Joe about his thespianism:

How old were you?

I was 3.

Do you remember doing it?

Not particularly. I have memories of being in Central Park that might get mixed with that.

How did it come about?

My mother was in Bloomingdale’s returning a gift for my newborn sister. She needed money to buy diapers. She was approached by a recruiter because of my sister.  They called us a few times later on, and my sister did some advertisements, and my sister had worked as a stand-in for the baby in the film in a couple scenes, and then they called us about something happening at Central Park. They were going to film a scene in Central Park and they wanted families and kids to be there playing.

Did you get paid for it?

We did. Maybe enough for a haircut and a pair of sneakers.

So you don’t see any royalties?

No, no royalties. Maybe I should ask a lawyer about that.

Did you or your mom meet Tom Selleck, Ted Danson, or Steve Guttenberg?

No, we never got to know them.

If you could meet one of the three, which one would you want to meet?

That’s a tough question. Maybe Tom Selleck.

What do you think of the movie?

Timeless classic comes to mind. I think it’s well-written, it’s well-acted, and I think the extras really give it that extra something special.
