We have received 10 responses from 50+ aged actors with gray hair who can raise and eyebrow “Roger Moore” style, and who want to be in our short film. Don’t you just love a job description like that.
We will see some of them to check that we can work with them and will then pick the one best suited for the role.
The BBC promises sunshine and 14 degrees on Sunday, so I cross my fingers they keep that promise, and I look forward to our shoot. We will post the short online (when it has been edited) and I’ll let you know when it is available for you to see.
I bought another theatre ticket for a play in New York. Somehow the idea of Kevin Kline playing Cyrano the Bergerac was too much to resist. The 16th of November is the day I’ll catch him on stage in New York. And – I love the story about Cyrano, unrequited love, the tragedy of life. I am expert.
To make me feel even better:
Bill Nighy makes guest a appearance in short Coping Strategies, a 26 minute short film. And even though Bill will not appear in person at this event, I have been lucky enough to score a ticket for one of the only 2 cinema showings of this film, it’s tomorrow.
A new film with Bill, unexpected and completely out of the blue – that’s just what I needed. I am not only crawling, I am standing up, I brush the dust from my knees, and I am ready to attack my script with more persistence than ever.
He grooves me out.
