Selfish? Maybe.

After a choppy first week of rehearsal for FourSquare I was left thinking: "Wow, I used to be good at this didn't I?"

Zip it.

The answer is of course "mostly".

But the thing is? I never simply come at a script. I haven't been charged with looking at one character and only that character, with no additional duties, in seven years.

Not only have I not improved as an actor in those years, aside from the natural improvement that I think comes with age, I have lost a lot of technique due to accumulated rust.

Will I improve? Sure. That guy is still in here somewhere. But there's an awful lot of character development time that's going to get lost to me figuring how to do this again.
