Australian Auctioneer Of The Year and Television Personality, James Pratt was a big hit with USA audiences when he recently appeared on the popular Texas podcast, Opinions and Beer.
During the podcast Pratt spoke on his success in auctioneering and acting and in particular his new upcoming film Malibu Crush, which he says is a passion project for him. "It’s crucial for people to make the most of what you have now and not procrastinate waiting for the perfect time. Something he says has helped with his auctioneering and acting success.
Pratt describes Malibu Crush as a throwback to the 80s and 90s comedies such as National Lampoons Vacation with Chevy Chase. In the film, Michael and Duey are two best friends from Pasadena on a hopeless quest to find a long-lost love now living in Sydney Australia. “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take, he said when asked why he was making the film now.
During the podcast Pratt also spoke on the benefits of being Australian overseas and how you can get away with a lot more being Australian, especially if you get into some trouble. When told by host of Opinions and Beer, Adam Lee Morgan that he was only the second Australian to appear on the Texas-based show, Pratt joked, I think there is a gap sometimes when you say you’re from Australia and in another country, he said laughing, despite the fact we have 70 story skyscrapers and very modern tech cities, people overseas often think we ride Kangaroo’s to the airport and wrestle crocodiles, when they ask me about this, I tell them, "yes, I do, in return, you feed the Kangaroo for taking you to the airport.
Adam joked it’s similar being from Texas sometimes when I mention I'm from Texas people still feel it’s cowboys, beer and guns and this lawless place.
Later on in the show Lee, Morgan commented on James being multi-talented, including winning ,The 2019 Australian Auctioneer Of The Year Award, he said "In the US auctions for Real Estate is not such a common form of selling however you must be good because you got the attention of everyone here especially celebrities. Pratt commented I'm very thankful for being able to hustle in different industries and keep on learning,
