Jared Keeso was put on the map last year when he played Canadian legend Don Cherry in the CBC biopic Keep Your Head Up Kid, The Don Cherry Story. His remarkable performance won him a 2010 Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini- Series.
As many Canadian actors do this time of year, Jared headed South to Hollywood to audition for pilot season. We figured this was the perfect opportunity to get a first hand look at what makes LA The Bees Knees.
MUSIC VENUES: Legendary spots like the Troubadour, Viper Room (previously owned by Johnny Depp and also where River Phoenix OD’d on Heroin), The Hollywood Bowl, and The Smell (seedy new venue I checked out last night in downtown LA that new bands like No Age, Abe Vigoda and Physical Forms have put on the map.)
PIT BULLS: I am a massive fan of this breed and have seen some of the most handsome/gorgeous pups hanging out of car windows or being walked down the street. LA folk love their bully breeds.
CAR WASHES: Nothing makes you desire a clean car like a warm, sunny day which we don’t see an overwhelming amount of in Canada. It’s warm and sunny almost every day here and the ratio of car washes to people is seemingly 1:10.
FASHION/STYLE: I understand that LA is somewhat of a hub for fashion and style. There is certainly no shortage of interesting looking people walking around. There is an extremely diverse population and a scene for whatever you’re into. I can’t decide whether I’m a better fit for Teen Vogue or People’s Rev..
