Rage Against Suburban Zombie-ism

Some stereotypes are just better than others.
I don't want to put the cart before the horse or however that Whitey saying goes, but I managed to get a bit part in Guillermo del Toro's upcoming film, Pacific Rim, a.k.a. Still Seas.
My headshot got me the part of a lab technician. I don't frickin' care if I'm shot on an assembly line at the lab where Cialis is made, at least it's scores better than being handed a script, told to read the part of "prostitute"...that was haphazardly written, btw.
About a decade ago, just for tits 'n giggles, my sis & I decided to go to an open casting call for an Oliver Stone movie. We were both given the honour to read the part of the not-so-happy hooker. And I think because we commuted all the way there, were relatively young 'n naive, we read anyway. Obviously, neither of us scored the part.
I didn't look like a hooker 10 years ago and I certainly don't fit the mold now, BUT if you try to screw me over, I will cut you!
P.S. If this doesn't throw you a curveball, stereotype-wise, Math/Sciences were my worst subjects. And at least a decade of piano lessons, my fingers do not exactly 'dance' on the ivories. It's more of a drunken stumble.
