  1. Man, I was happy to hear you would be going. I was genuinely happy toleanr that you were going to hang out with the rest of the cast despite being cut. I was happy to learn that Rick said you would be going to the event. I was excited for you. I checked your site today to hoping to hear more good news, especially after reading about the Polar Express audition earlier today. What a shock it was to learn that you got snubbed again. I was really hoping to hear all about your experiences with the premiere. I’m very sorry. I could say it doesn’t matter, but I know it mattered to you. All I can say is it’s beyond your control, and you have a ton of fans, loving family, and friends. The experience just makes you a wiser man.
