Gary Lee Miller is humble beyond measure, but he is also the type of person who becomes very focused when he wants something or if he sees an opportunity that interests him. Once he is locked in on something, he tends to pursue it to the end, even if he doesn't know what the end will be.
"I've always been that way," he says.
So, it shouldn't surprise anyone who knows him that a simple desire to, at best, sit in the crowd during the partial filming of the Jackie Robinson biopic "42" at Engel Stadium 10 years ago has led to a mini second career that includes nearly two dozen roles as an extra in movie and television projects. He is also now an author of both a screenplay and a book and has his sights set on seeing those turned into a movie.
