Above, Team March member Cory Jugas, Morale, Welfare and Recreation aide, 452d Force Support Squadron, stands by for a cameo appearance on the sitcom, Anger Management, June 13. Jugas, was selected out of the audience of a previous taping because of his talented dancing skills. Below, Jugas gets a few stage pointers from Tiffer Boucher, production assistant, while sitting in the staged barroom.

March Field, known for its historic connection with Hollywood greats such as Bob Hope and Cary Grant, now has a new line of Hollywood-hopefuls lined up to make their mark in the history of the base. One, Cory Jugas, Morale, Welfare and Recreation aide, 452d Force Support Squadron, was selected to make a guest appearance as an extra on the TV sitcom, Anger Management, June 13.

“I attended a laugh-track taping of the show that was arranged through my squadron’s booster club,” said Jugas. “I didn’t set out to be part of the show, I just thought it would be great to be on an actual Hollywood set – and oh yes, get a chance to meet the show’s top actor (Charlie Sheen).”

While there, show producers coaxed audience members into doing comedy skits between shoots – this was done to liven everyone up so they could record their laughter for future use in the show. Unknown to the audience members, producers were indirectly scouting for someone to make a cameo appearance on a future taping. They looked for participants who displayed enthusiasm and excitement, yet maintained a natural sense of being – no fakers.

“They had us up there doing crazy things,” said Jugas. “The producers had one person create a crazy dance move and the rest of us had to add to it with even crazier moves. I guess my moves caught their attention because they selected me at the end of the show.”

Jugas was given notice to standby for notification from the show’s producer. to make the trip back to the Anger Management studio for the taping.
“It took awhile, but the producer finally Emailed me back for the show. He explained that I would be an extra during a barroom shoot. I was cast to have casual conversation with another bar-goer, but who can speak casually on a Hollywood set,” said Jugas?

The day of the filming began around noon with everyone sitting around the set, waiting. When the star of the show came on scene, about five hours later, everything seemed to come together like magic. The call to action sent everyone into frenzy, with lights and cameras in full action. From late afternoon to early evening; late evening to early morning, the cast filmed the bar scene set; take after take after take, with no real alcohol and a whole lot of meaningful [empty] conversation. At the stroke of midnight, the star actor called it “a wrap” and the cast and crew left for the day, satisfied with what they had accomplished.

For an inexperienced actor, that was an ideal role. There were no lines to memorize or pressure to act above and beyond – just look interested.

“I don’t foresee taking up acting as future career; I am not the camera-seeking type. I am most comfortable in the background,” Jugas said. “The show is expected to air, Aug. 15, on the FX channel.”

The 452d FSS Go-getters, the squadron booster club, coordinated this event. It maintains solid connections with Hollywood producers on the Anger Management set, along with other shows such as Hot in Cleveland, America’s Funniest Videos and more. In addition, the booster club improves the morale of its members by offsetting the costs of social functions and other squadron events. They also provide flowers for hospitalized members, as well as family member bereavements.

“Currently we are an FSS-specific organization; however, if we can align our efforts with other base entities, the possibility of opening up our services base-wide would benefit all of March,” said Michelle Converse, president, 452d FSS Go-Getters. “Our most popular program allows members to view tapings of popular TV sitcoms, in which we intend to make available to all Team March members.”
