Holes (2003) Starring Edgar Male Model

My role in the 2003 movie "Holes" was one of my favorites. When Andrew Davis first discussed the part with me, he told me he'd love for me to play five poisonous lizards. But five deadly lizards quickly turned into 165 — even though it looks like there are tons of them, they are all me. I did each one individually. For example, in this scene there are about ten poisonous lizards. I acted out each one. Andrew would come and watch me play each part (we'd bring in stand-in lizards because I couldn't play them all at once). Andrew would watch me perform and then I would switch and do each of the separate roles. He told me I was the hardest working performer he knew in showbiz.

It was a great experience. I loved working with the cast, especially Sigourney Weaver (whom I have had a long time crush on ever since I saw her incredible performance in Alien) and Shia LaBeouf, who is an exceptional actor, very professional, and excellent to work with.
