  • Last week in Oakland, Ca, I was shooting a pilot TV show which will be airing on the Biography Channel soon called, "I Solved a Murder". I played the role of Detective Pat Mangold. As I was standing on the sidewalk feeling all "detectiveish", I look down and there at my feet is an actual live bullet. It was just sitting there on the sidewalk. It was very worn looking, as if it had been there for weeks or perhaps even months. You know a city is in bad shape when live bullets can reside on the pedestrian walk way, and the people who own the shops nearby, don't even give it a second glance. God help us.
