In a new lengthy interview, Macaulay Culkin touches on a number of different subjects. One of those subjects was a chance at auditioning for Quentin Tarantino on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The movie is critically acclaimed and earned several Academy Award nominations. It would have been a great place to see Culkin, but it was not to be. He explains. … [Read more...] about Macaulay Culkin Auditioned for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and It Was a Disaster
Britains got talent auditions
The HARSH reality of reality shows these days is more than performances, the backstory of the contestant is given more preference! Also, there is so much drama that there is no reality in reality shows! It has to be recalled that Indian Idol was trolled as many viewers felt that the contestant was selected based on their (sob) story! Recently, in a post for 'Humans of Bombay', Bollywood actress Sanya Malhotra revealed as to how she loved dancing and dreamt of becoming an actor, but got rejected by Dance India Dance because her backstory wasn't strong enough. That's when she started doubting herself. Read on to know more! … [Read more...] about Sanya Malhotra Was REJECTED By Dance Indian Dance Because Her Backstory Wasn’t Strong!
A similar attitude prevails regarding Raquel Welch, who’s been fine in, for example, an Anita Bryant orange-juice commercial parody. “What’s a Florida sunshine girl like me doing in Beirut?” she asks, being tied to a post to be shot by a firing squad. “Spreading the good word about orange juice!

Like a lot of high school dropouts, he’s reached the age at which he’s apprehensive about his lack of book learning. Even certain TV and movie people have read Chaucer and Baudelaire, and in Hollywood, if they haven’t, they drop the names anyway. John’s been heavily exposed to this, of course, and sometimes, when you query him intricately, his eyes seem to glaze, as though he fears the question contains a trick. I do not ask him about this last, however; in a way, I’ve begun to guard him from his own vulnerability. Partly, this is again his presence, which calls up something parental. Partly, it’s because he is, quite simply, an earnest young man who does try. You sense, by now, that he is not so much callow as unformed; that Diana Hyland’s death jarred him profoundly and began the shaping of his character; that, given time, … [Read more...] about Struttin’ His Stuff
Freeman said: “Tony Schumacher’s script for The Responder resonated with me immediately. It felt like nothing that I’d read or seen.” Bowen, the CEO of Dancing Ledge, added: “Tony is one of the most talented new writers we’ve ever worked with.
