I probably should have called it: What Is Colin Farrell Really Like This is the story of my summer gig working as an extra in the film The New World, which was Terrence Malick's dramatic re-creation of the Jamestown experience and the life of Pocahontas, released in 2006 by New Line Cinema. I saw a story in the newspaper about auditions. I had very little acting experience, but I had had ancestors at Jamestown in the 1600s and was writing a book about some of them. So I thought it might help me to feel the ambience of Jamestown if I was "lucky" enough to make the cut. In the first scene on the first day, I had to perform next to Colin Farrell and Christopher Plummer. Everyone seemed to think I should know what to do! Overall, I think the book will give readers a new appreciation of the talent, hard work, and sheer craziness that go into the making of a big budget Hollywood film.

    New World Extra by Joe David Bellamy is a good book about the movies and what it's like to do background actor work in a big-time, expensive, major Hollywood studio movie with famous movie stars. Location work is very, very hard, very physical, often dangerous. News about that doesn't get out much, and detailed writing of the sort Bellamy provides almost never is written by an actual background actor who endured the battles and emerged to tell the tale. Bellamy writes about his experience with honesty and humility, and he is touching, poignant, and funny. Anyone who likes and is interested in the movies and the hidden parts of feature movie making should read this book. --Tex Allen, SAG actor
