Old Dogs & New Tricks celebrates Thanksgiving in its latest episode “Thanks But No Thanks,” directed by series creator Leon Acord, now playing at http://youtu.be/jHwf76SzY8k!
As the gang gathers at Ross’ house for the holiday, Lydia (Amanda Gari) is thrilled to introduce the guys to her new boyfriend (Andy Gates). But despite her happiness and Ross’ recent good news, it seems she’s the only one in a festive mood.
While the guys rave about Nathan’s new beau Jake (Curtis Wayne Brown), Nathan (Acord) can’t stop wondering how Damian is spending the holiday. Muscles (Jeffrey Patrick Olson) complains that dating Lucas is making him fat. Ross’ (David Pevsner) holiday is ruined when a drunken Neal (Parnell Damone Marcano) crashes. And then Brad (Curt Bonnem) drops a bombshell: he’s becoming a gigolo!
Did Acord enjoy his first stint in the director’s chair?
“I was a bit nervous at first,” says Acord. “But I must confess that it was so easy! I’d forget I was the director. Folks would be waiting for me to call ‘cut’! But that’s because our actors know their characters so well. Each of our directors has told me, at one point or another, that these actors direct themselves. And it’s true. Plus, we have a wonderful crew that I trust one-hundred percent. There were some shots where I didn’t even look in the viewfinder!”
The series returns next Wednesday with its fourth new episode, “To Have & Have Not,” directed by Steven Curtis.
