I don’t normally say too much about the totally cool jobs I go out on, largely because I’m old school. I started my career at a time when the goings on behind the scenes remained behind the scenes.
But today I’m going to tell you about a super fun gig I was on last week, because I want you to go see the movie.
Last week I was on a press tour for Richard Linklater’s new movie
Everybody Wants Some!! which opens April 8th.
Basically I spent my time grooming the totally gorgeous and hilarious cast members Tayler Hoechlin, Blake Jenner, Glen Powell, Wyatt Russell, Juston Street, Will Brittain, J Quinton Johnson, and Forrest Vickery.
It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.
If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen this hair and makeup team selfie, taken at one of the Fox affiliates.

In the middle there’s the statuesque Allison, flanked on the left by Colleen and me on the right.
If you don’t follow me on Instagram yet, you should! There is all kinds of different content on my insta that you won’t find here on the blog.
Anyway, The film is hysterically funny. It’s set in Texas in 1980 and follows college freshman (Blake Jenner), his new baseball teammates and their disco dancing, girl chasing party crowd. It has a killer soundtrack, to which I know every single word, except for Rapper’s Delight, (which the boys can drop and rap on a dime).
And have I mentioned it’s hilarious??
A press tour basically involves a bunch of days doing media interviews.

We had some at TV stations, and loads more with national media at a baseball stadium. These are the 2 minute interviews you see on TV promoting a new movie. sometimes they are pre-tapes that will air closer to the opening date, others are live interviews.
