Modeling?!?! OK, sure...

I'm so excited to now be working with Funny Face Today modeling agency! It's been a busy week of go-sees, and learning the lingo for a whole new world. Can't wait to see what's in store! Funny people making funny faces, I assume...

No Place Like New York for the Holidays!

It's been an incredibly amazing, busy season for me! Now follows the info-blast-overload that I have been neglecting for weeks.

This month I signed with new representation - Archer King Ltd., with what looks like the beginnings of a beautiful friendship - and was invited to my first appearance as a finalist at The Actors Studio (brushing up my French accent and getting lots of butterflies in my stomach).

On top of that, I did my first background work, kick-started a comedy group tentatively named "Blood Pasties", and continued developing "Desire In Motion" - an innovative new physical performance piece ( I also did my first sketch comedy with Spare Change Theater - whew! Loads of fun.

AND Dec. 3, Occam Repertory Theater's one-act equity showcase I am blessed to participate in is opening: the "Suburban Motel" series by George F. Walker. Would love to see your faces there! Details are listed in this article:

Meanwhile, "Love Me Tender" has continued to show internationally, climbing to 20 festival premieres and winning "Best Short Film" at Mile High Horror Film Festival in Denver, CO. I had the opportunity to attend the closing screening at FirstGlance Festival in Philadelphia along with Director Matthew Morgenthaler and costars Max Rueben and Ben Levin and we had a blast! Literally ate our way through Philly. At FirstGlance, "Love Me Tender" won the award for "Best Cinematography." I am so jazzed at how well this film is doing, it's truly a great piece of work and I am honored to be a part of it. Check it out at

Back at the ranch, we had a fabulous Thanksgiving. I got to be the one who brings the wine - one of my favorite jobs - and the Christmas music has been playing non-stop ever since. Truly, so much to be thankful for as I am overwhelmed with amazing new projects, roles, friends, neighbors and coworkers. Not so starving for a starving artist. Right now all I can see is fullness.

If You Can't Join 'Em, Beat 'Em!

Sometimes it can be frustrating on the audition circuit, desperately trying to win parts you're not even sure you want to perform, finding yourself reading for the "robot prostitute" and wondering if soft-core porn might actually not be such a bad option bad after all....

But instead of succumbing to this cycle, I've decided to mix it up.

I've been so inspired by watching my fellow artists go out there and produce their own work that I decided to give it a shot myself! "Exhibit Us: Desire in Motion" is a one-hour show composed of storytelling vignettes that use movement, music, text and dance to express the most precious desires of the artists creating them. It's a collaborative performance piece that has grown out of much of the training done at The Actors Studio Drama School, mixing genres and non-linear expression to find a more universal language, unleash the the power of desire, and give us artists a way to express ourselves!

Right now we are in the process of finding a space and nailing down a date/time. It's going to be an exciting journey and I can't wait to see what happens. We already have an incredible team of people involved and every day more express interest.

More coming soon!

At Large

This page is for news, updates and feedback! Upcoming shows, networking etc for Jeanne Joe Perrone.

Perrone recently completed her MFA at The Actors Studio Drama School with flying colors. After 3 years of intensive, deep study she is excited to continue honing her craft at large in the "real world" - which is just another name for the applied imagination. Though she holds a masters degree, she feels that there is no such thing as "mastering" acting. Every moment is a unique experience and growth opportunity.

Excited for the next chapter!
