    Hi Jeff,

    My name is Bob Lamb and I would love to be a henchmen in your movie.

    I’m 6 foot tall and 215 lbs. I am currently a professional model, with over 15 years of experience. I’m very proficient in firearms, having hunted and used guns all my life. Also, experienced with military style weapons. In very good shape, (I am also a personal trainer), so fight scenes would be easy for me to do. I have been an extra on Nash Bridges, in Independent film, and have done TV commercials. I do more rugged/outdoors type of modeling jobs. With a slight beard I look the henchmen part.

    You can contact me at boblamb@charter.net. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you for your consideration.


    Bob Lamb
