Cheshire resident in the Deniro flick

Nope. Not me. Oh well...

From the MRJs Stacy Graham Hunt:

A Cheshire man and business owner went to prison Friday... and says he had a great time.

Patrick Holland, 37, owner of Ciao Bella on Elm Street, was cast as an extra for the movie "Everybody's Fine," featuring Robert DeNiro and Drew Barrymore, scenes of which were shot at Cheshire Correctional Institution.

Holland e-mailed a photo of himself to Grant Wilfley Casting Agency last week, and the company selected him to play the role of a prisoner in the film.

"I was picked out of a lot of people," he said.

Even Town Councilor Tim White submitted a photo of himself to the casting company in the hope of landing a part as an extra, but didn't meet with Holland's success.

Somehow though I'll press forward and manage to deal with the rejection. Ha! Seriously though... I think it would've been fun... and something different.
