After appearing on the Theo Von show ‘This Past Weekend’ in August (link here), I got a call from a Hollywood casting director. Yeah, right – that’s what I thought too.
This person hit me up on every platform (blog contact, insta, twit, effbook) and so I decided to give her a call as requested.
She wanted me as a contestant for a new CBS Show called ‘Million Dollar Mile,’ with Lebron James. She paused after saying Lebron James.
I’m sorry, but who is Lebron James?
Dir: Only the greatest basketball player of all time!
Thankfully she thought this was cute.
So what does this game show involve? The name suggests running.
Dir: A .25 mile run, followed by an assault course, followed by a .25 mile run… the first to hit the mile wins a million bucks.
I am currently built to haul a 1,000lbs across an ocean. I’m not exactly a runner.
Dir: That’s fine, they don’t really want you to win the million bucks anway.
Dir: You’re an endurance athlete, you’ll be fine!
There’s running fit and there’s ocean rowing fit. It could be humiliating…
Dir: The chasers will give you extra time.
Screw it, I’ll do it!
Dir: Are you American?
No. Is that important?
Dir: Can you get married?
Sure, find me someone to marry!
Dir: I have a friend who might marry you.
Dir: When are you next in LA?
Me: This is hilarious. I’ve really enjoyed our call!
I was in LA for a conference this past weekend. I did not get married. I will not be a contestant in the new Million Dollar Mile show – at least not in the first series.
So LeBron James is a big deal huh?
