Just outside, hidden in a moving van, there were at least a half dozen more people -- local city cops, the so-called Takedown Team -- all armed and ready to spring at a moment's notice.
A couple of months ago, when Schrack showed up at an audition at the NBC studios in Burbank, California, he hadn't really known what he was getting himself into.
The cell phone was plugged in to a recording device.
Before placing the phone in its cradle, Schrack had punched in the number of a man he knew as Wil, and now he was listening to the ringing in the headphones.
Yesterday, at around p.m., a young actor named Dan Schrack leaned back against a folding table and held a tubular, bendable microphone close to his lips.
Headphones pinioned his blond Prince Valiant hairdo over his ears. Pepper, and a packet of Pepto-Bismol sat on the table, as did a Motorola cell phone.
