Actor Brian Kinney may have found the best way to get his face in front of producers and casting directors around town: by planting himself and his vending cart at the entrance of Runyon Canyon in Hollywood.
Brian has been serving Hawaaian shave* ice along with bottled water, Clif bars, and other hike/run/yoga friendly snacks for the past two months at the La Brea entrance to Runyon, slowly building a clientelle that includes LAPD officers and Councilman Tom LaBonge. A requisite sign hangs from the self-owned cart alongside a headshot that reads: “Shamelessly Seeking Agent Representation.”
Shameless? This guy’s working unlike the truly shameless Dennis Woodruff.
(Out of full disclosure, I should point out he gave me a free shaved ice while I snapped these pics… proving that writing for blogging.la has clout)
* UPDATE: I incorrectly first called this Hawaiian Shaved Ice, instead of the proper Hawaiian Shave Ice. Thanks to reader Greg for the red ink.
