In my incessant genre-hopping I have been ‘in discussions’ to do some film producing in Texas with some stars involved, which gave rise to a new sequence of actors’ nightmares.
I find them most tiresome! First of all, I quit acting sophomore year after looking in the mirror and saying ‘I shall not play someone else, let someone else do it.’ Let’s say I have the lead role in a play or a major supporting role, usually involving a Shakespearean play within a play, and I haven’t been to a rehearsal in more than a month. IF the director doesn’t call me to find out what’s up, doesn’t s/he cast someone else? The only explanation is if they want me to tank, but if I believe that all the tension would be gone at once.
