Actors in John Landis' Twilight Zone: the Movie.

I f'n laughed out loud, but I cut myself afterward.

Heads should've rolled, well they did but not the right ones.

I actually worked as a casting agent some years ago. Not in Hollywood, but in Norwegian television.

In walks Kirk...

Thor: So, what have you been in?

Kirk: Lonely are the Brave. Famous western where i fight a one-armed man with one arm tied behind my back. George Kennedy and Walter Matthau also starred. Dalton trumbo did the screenplay. The film won a bafta and was nominated for 2 others.

Thor: thats a bit obscure isnt it. Next!

The maintainer of Trump's Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star.

Interestingly, Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey's Stars are still in place - unmolested.

With so many film jobs that could be done anywhere in the world (special effects for instance) & more films being made outside Hollywood, & Hollywood pay being maybe higher than most places...I was wondering if some jobs are beginning to dry up, & pay on the downward slope.

Is it harder to earn a crust these days, are the gravy days gone? I'm sure brm would know.

What Scott wrote applies to my reaction to solium's post.

Not just a theory but a fact. There's the infamous story of the effects company who were excepting the Oscar for Best Effects for Life of Pi while at the same time going into bankruptcy. The reason? Hollywood hiring cheaper labor in Canada and other places in Europe.

In fact most "Hollywood" television shows and TV movies are shot in Canada.

I would say casting supervisor.

It used to be you tried to cast the actors who are most suited to the role and the film.
Now, you have a chart on the wall with little boxes for every ethnic group, race, religion, sexual orientation, age etc. that need to be checked off before filming begins!

The CSA have been victims of a hostile takeover by The Diversity Mafia!
brm

p.s. I am all for diversity, but filmmakers/artists should be allowed to cast who
they want. With no outside interference.


If this is a serious post, I'd like to think that you're somewhat aware of Tinseltown's rich and shameful history of casting everything from Asians to African-Americans to Indians (dot and feather) with White people and that this 'hostile takeover by the Diversity Mafia' is more a balancing of the scales.

If this is a joke post (and how could it not be?)...dude, you really had me going.

The unfortunate ones who have to hear all those virtue signalling pontifications and pretend it's wisdom from the Brow of Zeus.

To be fair, Cosby and Spacey are not actively trying to make the entire world a terrible and difficult place to live (just selected parts of it).
You can also point to good things Cosby and Spacey have done in the past, which you can't about Trump.

The secretary who has to answer e-mail from Phelps, Solium , Brannigan.et al
whining about a new show that:
Is too p.c
Promotes a liberal agenda
Virtue signals
Is another SJW propaganda vehicle
