Our campaign of the week is A ROLE TO DIE FOR



A ROLE TO DIE FOR is a comedy/thriller set against the backdrop of Hollywood and the entertainment business. And!... most of the things that happen in this film come from actual events! I'm not kidding, it's crazy here. And!... the characters in the film are based on real people that I have met in my many years in this business. So see if you can figure out "who" is really "whom." Or is that the other way around? Whatever...


John C McGinley

So when Neo-Luddite, (someone who fights against technology, Twitter, FB, etc...) COLIN CLOONEY, played by John C McGinley, (Scrubs, Wall Street, Office Space, Platoon and about 100 other film credits! ) ---- hears about a role of a Luddite being cast by Movie Producer, HANK HENRY, played by Jonathan Banks, (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, 48 hours, Beverly Hills Cop, so old-school film, he drips melted celluloid! -- film.)

Colin knows this is the part he has been waiting for his whole life, but when he figures out that social-media is determining who is being cast and seven actors with more "followers and likes" would have to die before he even gets the opportunity to audition, things get kooky.

And as Colin pursues this role, things really go sideways when his best friend/screenwriter, JIMMY WALTERS, that's me, decides to write his masterpiece about Colin's misdeeds. A "who done it!"

And how can you do a story about Showbiz without the stunning women of Hollywood, huh? Well you can't, so the story is full of them. And they're gorgeous…seriously! And if you invest enough, well maybe you just might get to meet them.

Johnathan Banks
Also in the cast; Mark Moses who will play, Kenny Kerry, one of Colin's competitors for a part in the epic film-in-a-film. (Mad Men, Desperate Housewives, Homeland, Platoon, The Last Ship).

*And most likely two other actors from Platoon as well. We're getting the band back together… or Platoon in this case. Ha! But we're going to keep it a surprise.

Directing this picture will be super-talented, Sundance veteran director, John Asher, (Tooken, One Tree Hill, Dirty Love). And whether known as a writer, director, producer, or actor, John has a natural affinity to entertain. John comes from old Hollywood and great stock. His father, William Asher, was the original director of I LOVE LUCY (1951) and creator of BEWITCHED (1964). Come on now? Do ya think John knows comedy? Get outta here! It's in his blood!

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty. Briana Dickerson a white suburba…
