My Audition Video

Do your humans wait breathlessly for each new episode of Downton Abbey?

I am unclear regarding the appeal as there is but one doggie in it and she doesn't seem to have many acting talents. Other than walking about the estate, her role is confined to entrances, exits, and the odd pat on the head.

Surely I, Dexter the Wonder Dog, would be able to add some zest to the program.

Subsequently, I enlisted the aid of Momma and Master to make my own audition video which is even now winging its way to the Masterpiece Theatre Studios.

Stay tuned for Season 5 which I have little doubt will be sans fat yellow lab and feature yours truly.

Watch my audition video here or below.





Dexter done!

P.S. Yes, I used a stunt double for some of the more dangerous portions of the movie. A star cannot be too careful.

  4. Definitely would add some class. SHE's currently watching the DVDs (much of it on fast forward)and think you'd be perfect.

  5. Yes indeed. And we assume that the stunt double was used in the scenes with Miss Lacie?

  7. Howdy Dexter, mum hasn't watched that show butt she says if you could get a part in the TV series, Justified with Timothy Olyphant then it would be totally perfect. She could drool over Mr Olyphant and we could watch you! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  8. Dexter,

    It would be most helpful if you could show us where you used the stunt double. Either your momma is rockin' the editing or that double is a doppelganger!

  9. Oh well done Dexter, I can see you worked really hard on that!
    As a British doggy I can say black labs are far more appropriate to a country estate.

  10. your nose seems to have developed much curlier fur in those close ups - must be just a trick of the camera for sure :) :)

  11. Oooh! As much as Mom is a Downton Abbey fan, I have to tell you, we'd MUCH rather watch Downador Abbey! And we think you did an excellent job on the audition video!

  12. Dexter, how come you edited out the parts of you and me getting married at the local church where you stand me up at the altar? And I attack you? Just wondering. Oh, and was there a reason having my name LAST?
    SHEESH.

    We can't wait for the new season....so when does Downador Abbey start?????

    XXOOOO

  15. OMD, you are SO smart!! What acting! What skill! I don't believe you used a stunt double. That was ALL YOU the whole way!

  16. Dexter, as one who watched previous seasons in a truly addicted/fangirl/obssessed manner I feel that I am qualified to say that your audition tape is bloody fantastic. Surely you will replace that blonde canine. I see you as Mary's faithful sidekick to make sure she and the baby are protected after the tragic demise of Matthew. You and Mary have similar hair color, so I think this will work. Also, WHEN you are offered the part, please include a clause in the contract for a body double as well as a stunt double. One never knows when one might be asked to be in scene that is risque in nature. Best of luck old chap! Ann TBL

  17. My mommy watches that show and loves it so much. I agree you would be such the better doggie for the show. Much more entertaining....and I'm sure that even I would watch it too. Thank you for sharing you acting abilities, I think you should send it end and see if they cast you in the next season.

  18. Hmm. I've never seen that show, but Zim said our mom and dad watched it. I'm sure the show would be much better with you in it.
    Camo!

  19. I'd watch the show if Dexter was in it!

  20. I think you deserve your own show, Dexter! Your audition was brilliant!

  21. Brilliant! And I bet that yellow lab is fat because she gets all of the leftover foodables from those wonderful meals they always have on the show. I'll be looking for you next season.

  22. We've never watched the show either in this house - although my humans have heard lots of buzzing about it. Well, we would watch it if you were in it, Dexter!! :-) You'd do a much better job than that fat, yellow lab...

    ps Oh! Have you & your Momma seen the poll on my blog to help decide on a cover for my mystery novel? If you haven't yet, please do pop over when you have a moment! We would love to hear your Momma's opinions - Hsin-Yi says she always enjoys her "rants" - hee! hee! :-)
