This October leading up to Halloween, we at 4MileCircus are revisiting the production of Small Talk. We will be adding new special features to the deluxe edition and running a series of reflections here on the blog from writer/director Nicole Witte Solomon and others who made this oddly enduring horror flick.
Ed Sacco is a talented voiceover actor who quickly vaulted from auditioning for “Hang Up Caller #1” to playing the meatier role of Al’s regular client, Tim. Although he never appears on screen, Sacco clearly left his mark on the film! We liked him so much that we also asked him to narrate the alternate, “grindhouse” trailer for the film.
I originally responded to a Craigslist post looking for “noises” (you know phone sex horror movie). I did my takes and sent in the audio. I think the 15 takes of “noises” I sent to Nicole must have really made an impression, because she offered me a speaking role.
