Jon's at Racing school

Anyone who as ever driven with Jon knows how much he loves to drive fast, very fast. Well this week he is at Bondurant Driving School a car racing school. It is a 4 day long course in Phoenix, AZ. He is having a blast! We both have been to stunt driving school where they teach you how to shake the tires loose with control, now he is learning a ton of detail on how to not shake the car loose while driving at crazy speeds and driving very fast cars. Tomorrow in fact I think he gets to drive the F-1 style Formula cars. He is lovin' it!

The Oscars

I must say I love movies, I love going to movies, I love working in movies and I love the Oscars. Hugh Jackman was a great host. I was super happy Slumdog won best picture. That was one of the best movies in a long time. If you haven't seen it go see it.

As I sit here tonight watching the different departments that make up a movie get celebrated I can't help but wonder when will stunt people be acknowledged? How do you balance not ruining the illusion with giving credit to the talented people who make all those action sequences so amazing. Will Smith was on stage tonight and gave a tribute to action movie sequences but made no mention of the stunt people who made that happen. We have been fighting for years to be included in the oscars but get denied. It was just last year that we were included in the SAG awards.

Jon on Grey's Anatomy tonight

Sorry I didn't post earlier but this episode sneaked up on me. Jon is on the Grey's Anatomy tonight doubling McDreamy aka Patrick Dempsey.

Here is a picture of Jon and working this week. I was playing an old lady and Jon had to tackle me. It was pretty fun. I kept telling him it was ok to really hit me but he didn't feel right. I said I would rather you hit me hard once then go easy on me and not get it. Not many people's wife's tell them to tackle them harder. What a strange and amazing life!

This Friday

I am on Ghost Whisperer this Friday at 8pm on CBS. I usually double Jennifer Love Hewitt but on this episode I am doubling a guest star. This was the stunt I did right before Thanksgiving that gave me a limp for week and a 10 inch long scar on my leg. I am sure it won't look as hard core as it was but it was one of the more technical stunts I have done. I will let you know exactly what I did after the episode airs but chances are you will spot me.

Work Pics

Here is a picture from Heroes. I think this is from the episode that aired this last week. When I first came to work they handed me a bra and panties and they said this was my wardrobe. I was like freaking out not ready for my bikini close up but they decided to add this lovely robe. It was the nicest, softest robe I have ever felt. I loved it and wanted to buy one. Here is a picture of me and the other SWAT stunt guys.
