Looking into the future of my bright career, but also staying present and in the moment.
A great past week of wins and achievements. Fuck it: A great 2016 of wins and achievements. I’m grateful to still be in the business and to still love what I do.
I look at this picture and I see a promising future.
I look at this picture and I look better with age. The focus is clear. I am who I am.
I look at this picture and I see a guy who is managing and administering his career with certainty. Administration is part of his DNA. He administers his career with fluidity and efficiency.
This picture looks like it’s part of a Vanity Fair magazine spread…where I’m the cover story for a particular month.
I’m on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine and the headline says, “Why We Love Jorge Ortiz” When you flip to page 170, you see the above picture and right below it, the headline says, “A man in control of his career and destiny.”
Looking into the future of my bright career, I am an actor, writer and showrunner. Look into my eyes and see that…cause I do.
Look into my eyes and see the now of Hollywood. The now of what is also sexy and beautiful.
Look into my eyes and see that I am who I am. I have my voice. I am in my body. I know what I know.
I’m on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine. When you flip to page 170, the article begins with, “When I first met Jorge Ortiz for our interview at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, I immediately noticed how skinny he is. This is Jorge Ortiz?! The powerful artist? My thoughts were interrupted when Jorge hugged me. It was one of the best hugs I have ever experienced in my life. His hug impinged me. Jorge really connected with me in his hug (By the way, his name is pronounced “George”, but I’ll get to that a little later.)
When we sat down, Jorge disarmed me with his charm. Those deep, brown eyes! That brilliant smile. That booming, signature laugh of his. And as soon as we sat down, I quickly saw why this skinny person is one of the most powerful and influential artists on the planet. He is intelligent, grounded, focused, passionate, funny and caring. I speak to him and he listens. He actually listens and is interested in you. When he works, he gets the job done with little fanfare and attention to himself. He’s always about the work and moves it forward like a world-class engine…”
Look into my eyes.
