I can’t even describe how happy 14-year-old me is for 29-year-old me. I’m a professional writer who performs on stage regularly who gets to meet famous actors and I’ll have my own (non-creepy) place in Manhattan.
Sorry! I’m an asshole. It’s just…where I am now…as tough as it can be sometimes…as many sacrifices as it took…as unconventional as it seems…it’s what I’ve always wanted??? Like, I just want people to know that if you want something more or just something different, you can work for it, and it can actually happen.
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.)
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…
Some totally cool counterpoints—which I LOVE! Thanks for the info! You know far more about him than I!
(I just love speculating about this stuff, you know?)
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.
“I had a friend attack me the other night,” she said, “and he, like, laid into me because he feels so strongly for Lagartha! That’s great. I mean, we have passionate fans. I love our fans. He was like, ‘Lagartha wants the best for her son and you’re just getting in the way!’ And I was like, ‘I’m sorry. You don’t think Aslaug wants the best for her sons? You’re not watching this properly. Go back and watch it again.’ That’s all she wants! She wants the best for her sons. She wants to protect them at all costs.”
There’s a trend of hot bitches who do crazy shit for their kids on TV right now and I LOVE it.
It is an absolute TRAVESTY that I have to walk through a store, go up an escalator, climb over Swedish tourists, hop over a roller cart filled with shampoo and crouch on the ground to find generic Midol in the Times Square Walgreens. TRAVESTY.
What Did She Do: …According to legend, [Cleopatra] rolled herself up in a carpet and the carpet was brought before Caesar. After some abiding servants unrolled the carpet, Cleopatra jumped out and said something like, “Surprise, bitch. Bet you thought you saw the last of me.” Or something. Whatever she said, Julius Caesar fell madly in love with her and their personal alliance meant that Egypt was totally Cleo’s.
Should You Try This Today? Please do. I’m not saying that being unrolled with a carpet will make a powerful and hot person want to bone you, but it would be an amazing story. “Have you and the Senator met before?” “Yes. I was in a carpet he unrolled.”
