Interview With Brock Waidmann



I have been ranting for quite some time about the injustice of Hollywood Producers casting able bodied actors to play disabled characters. Many people, including myself, have been calling on Hollywood Producers to cast actors with disabilities in roles for characters with disabilities or to go one step further and cast actors with disabilities in roles where the disability is not even part of the story line.

Recently, I learned that the Producers of a new TV show which will soon be coming to NBC have done just that. The people behind tha new Paul Reiser Show have cast a young actor named Brock Waidmann to play one of Paul's two sons on the show.

I contacted Brock and asked for an interview and learned something else. Brock is a delightful and very interesting young man. Read this interview with Brock Waidmann and find out why.
