The Life of Charles: Five Months of Fun – November 20, 2012

It’s been a longtime since I’ve rock and rolled… And by rocked and rolled, I, of course, mean posted an update on my blog – at least on the personal slash acting front. Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s what Led Zeppelin meant to say when Robery Plant and Co. penned those lyrics. (Robert Plant voice) […]

Dhoom 3: Booked!

Accomplishing goals is pretty sweet. I highly recommend it. Recently, I got to be part of a major film being shot here in Chicago. A major film that most people will probably never see or hear anything about – at least in the US. I’m talking about the Bollywood Blockbuster Dhoom 3 (pronounced Doom). More […]

Film Festival Frenzy? You Bet.

I’ve worked on a number of Independent and short films. I’ve been lucky as they’ve all been tremendous experiences and quality projects. Like many films in this world though, they don’t typically gain too much exposure. These movies provide an outlet to work, beat on your craft, meet some great people, have fun and learn […]

What About Chrissy (2012) – A Short Film By Joy K. Jones | Starring Charles Rasmussen

I’ve been working on pulling together a reel that includes snippets of my film work. The project has taken a bit longer than anticipated as I’m currently waiting on footage from over a dozen independent and short films. All in due time, I suppose. I’m just happy and grateful to be working so much. Below […]

The Life of Charles: Living the Dream – June 6, 2012

It’s been some time since I shared an update from the life of Charles. The last one came way back in December of 2011. Come on Charles! What’s going on? Well, 2012 has been eventful on countless fronts. As we approach the midway point of the year, I figured it was about time to spit […]

The Official Trailer for “YOU BET” | A Sky Wang Film (2012)

Get ready… We’re getting closer to the release of “You Bet.” Below is the trailer. This in an indy film I worked on towards the end of 2011. All the footage in the preview was from the cutting room floor. Imagine what actually made the cut!” “You Bet” was one of my favorite projects of […]

The Life of Charles: I Do My Best – 12/10/11

I do my best, but I have to admit I haven’t been as on top of updating my blog lately. I suppose I’m too busy living and loving life. Since I know there are folks who are curious, I thought I’d take a minute to share a taste of what’s been going on in my […]

The Life of Charles: Summer Acting Updates

The other day, I realized, “Hey, I haven’t posted any updates on my acting website recently.” To be fair, I only try to put up bigger pieces of acting related news there and use this space primarily to share more details and riff on all the other things going on in my life. Have I […]

Discovering Ramin Bahrani

Recently, I had the privilege of auditioning for a small co-starring role in a feature film with with fairly prominent Director – Ramin Bahrani. Roger Ebert named him the top Director of the past decade. I didn’t get the part, but I still viewed the experience as a nice accomplshment. In Chicago, feature film auditions […]

Are You Ready For Some Photoshop?

Football is back! Giddyup. Like many American men, the NFL has a tendency to consume my Sundays from September through January. Granted, the obsession has been tempered over the years. A couple years back, when I committed to the Second City’s Musical Improv Conservatory program (classes were from 3:00-6:00 on Sundays), I knew the priority […]
