Great news for him.
I'm also not taking it as a personal slight on what I think or feel, if someone doesn't share my pov. Not everyone's going to think, or believe in the same way I do. I don't see that as a negative reflection on me as a person. I don't feel put off by coming on here and posting my thoughts, because someone doesn't share them. These varying povs are based (or should be based) on the storyline.
Watched Stuffer over the weekend and all Jake fans need to definitely see this film. This character is so different than Noah. Did ATWT really blow it when they didn't give Noah any range to his character (a bad boy storyline). You should hate the character but I found him to be rather hot and sexy, even if he was a disgusting dirt ball ... Hey, don't judge me! ;D
Jake Silbermann is a rising performer and co-founder of Camisade Theatre Company. He's best known for originating the controversial role of "Noah Mayer" on CBS' "As The World Turns." His other television credits include "The Guiding Light," "Gossip Girl," "The Good Wife," and ABC’s upcoming "Georgetown." He recently appeared in the World Premiere of Marina Carr’s "Phaedra Backwards" at NJ's McCarter Theatre, under the direction of Emily Mann. Jake is the writer of the award-winning short film "Stuffer," directed by Nathan Crooker.
The war in Vietnam is over and Brad (Jake Silbermann), an ex-serviceman, lands in L.A. to start a new life. When he winds up trashed in Connie (Anna Chlumsky) and Linda’s (Hannah Cabell) kitchen after a wild night of partying, the three strike a deal for an arrangement that has hilarious and devastating consequences for everyone.
Inspired by 1970s sitcoms, 1950s existentialist comedy, Chekhov and Disco anthems, 3C by David Adjmi (Stunning, Elective Affinities) is a terrifying yet amusing look at a culture that likes to amuse itself, even as it teeters on the brink of ruin.
Well, Jake's first scene begins with him walking out "in the buff" from the kitchen. After he runs back in, he comes out only in a town for a long scene.
This scene with Eddie Cahill, playing the womanizer, was a good scene.
The play was okay. Since it was based in the 70's, some of the language and situations about Brad being gay were a bit difficult to sit through. Kind of makes you want to go up on stage and punch out Mr. Wicker (The Mr. Roper character) but the actors did a great job with the material.
It's great to see Jake working with some big named stars. Hopefully something big is on it's way for Jake.
QUEERTY did a piece about this play last week. The character Jake plays is actually gay in stead of pretending to be gay like in the original tv series (in case folks who haven't seen the play didn't realize) and there is some serious political commentary within the comedy.
Yes, Jake's character, Brad, turns out to be gay and in love with Terry (the male neighbor). It was a dark play and where you didn't want to hit some of the cast, it was great. The actors did a great job.
They need to do some promo or post a video on youtube, because it started really well, but it's stalled right now. There are a lot of days to reach the goal, but not at the rythm of backing in the last two days
