Please vote for my nephew, Chris Wiley, an actor/writer/swordsmanship instructor
(in this economy, ya gotta diversify to pay the rent), currently in second place in the Dunkin' Donuts Create America's Next Donut Contest. Chris dubbed his donut creation, S'morgasbord, in the essay that landed him a spot in the finals.
The 1st Place Winner will receive a year's supply of donuts, have their creation added to the DD menu, and be awarded $12,000 (writers can't live on donuts alone).
You can vote once a day, every day, from now through Monday May 3, 2010 at:

Medford Man Goes for Dunkin' prize:
Three from Mass. Finalists in Dunkin' Donuts Contest:
Born in Birmingham, AL, Chris left the foothills of the Appalachians for Georgia, where he graduated from LaGrange College, and then headed for the footlights, becoming a company member of Atlantis Playmakers based out of Billerica, MA.
He also had a non-speaking role in Indiana Jones IV (Crystal Skull), appearing most visibly when standing in front of a big oak that Indiana rides by during the motorcycle chase scene. Keeping his lips sealed required tremendous acting flair because Chris is descended from a long line of witty motor-mouths (on both sides of his family tree).
Anyway, the movie premiered two years ago and Chris cashed the check way back then. Did I mention even semi-starving artists can't subsist on donuts and witty essays alone? Please vote and vote and vote again for Chris W. so you can experience his S'morgasbord (based on the campfire treat s'mores) at a Dunkin' Donuts near you.
