I learned yesterday that an extremely talented actor friend passed away.
Learned today how Eric Gelman died. It’s sick and wrong and horrible and tragic. I pray I will remember his humor and grace, not the mugging and stabbing that took his life Sunday.
I’m so grateful that I got to know Eric (we met two years ago when his good friends (the Harley Crew) recommended him for a film I was casting — and I continued to bring him in to audition for pretty much every film I cast after that) and I send my prayers and love to his family and friends, as they will be holding a memorial for him back in Florida tomorrow.
Rest in peace, dear Eric. I will never forget your dancing elbows, silly tongue shapes, and instant-red-face. You had the best actor special skills!!
