You know that feeling you get when something amazing happens? Like when your football team is behind and throws a Hail Mary pass as time runs off the clock... And catches it... And wins. Or when time slows down as you follow along on your ticket as the announcer reads the winning raffle number and, one by one, you realize it's yours. Or like when you find a twenty in the pocket of a jacket you haven't worn since last fall.
This... shooting a principal role in a feature film... Is so much better than that.
