Sister: Happy Easter! How’s the apartment hunt going?
Me: I think it’s okay. I found an awesome place, but I won’t know until next week if I got it or not.
Me: No—I still don’t know—
Sister: Can our other sister talk to you?
Other Sister: Happy Easter!
Me: Happy Easter!
Other Sister: Congratulations!
Me: On what? I don’t have a home and I have other personal stuff happening that—-
Other Sister: Mom told me that things are CRAZY for you. I’m so proud of you.
Me: Yeah, things are tough, but…
Other Sister: You did it!
pippinthemusical asked: IM GLAD BECAUSE I LOVE YOUR POST like ive literally been annoying my best friend about this since he was first announced and trying to figure out whether or not he was cast hahah and i keep going back and forth on whether or not he was
Oh, cool! I was desperate for more concrete info a few hours ago. I was walking through Times Square after work and realized that he was no longer in Pippin. I don’t follow Broadway as closely as I follow Hollywood—because it’s my job to follow Hollywood contracts and casting calls—so I didn’t know how abrupt his departure was. It just seemed fishy to me.
Again, it could be a coincidence. It’s just a fun coincidence.
Until now, I’ve totally rolled my eyes at most Star Wars casting rumors because I remember how bonkers the process was during the prequels. Nothing really fun or legit came out until filming started—which is what’s happening now.
So, now let the (gossip) games begin.
(Also, I think it’s really weird that everyone’s focused on what Jesse Plemons is up to, when there were four other actors on that leaked shortlist—so we’re at the point when someone should watch what Thomas, Ed Spleers, Ray Fisher and John Boyega are all lining up now.)
Matthew James Thomas, the actor from Pippin who was reportedly up for a Star Wars lead seems to have abruptly left Pippin two weeks ago, citing that he wanted to spend more time with family, and according to twitter, he is in England. Yes, that’s where he’s from, but it is also where Star Wars: Episode VII is currently filming.
No one is gossiping about this?!?!?!?!?
I mean, he probably is hanging with folks, but of all the rumors not circulating??? Like, come on. This actually feels like something. This isn’t another, “Oh, that person had a general meeting” story. This is a “Oh, that critically acclaimed actor who can dance, do wire work and who looks like a Skywalker just left a dream job and gave a BS reason and is in the same place this movie is currently filming” story. I’m just saying I’m disappointed in my fellow bloggers because this is some fun gossip.
