Josephine has been a tremendous help to us in understanding how to guide our son Grant’s desire to become an actor. They were instrumental in getting him a co-starring role in a movie that won at the Cannes Film Festival and helped secure him a contract for a feature. Got his first IMDB credit!

Help us get where we need to go?

HERE YOU GO  You wanted a break finally they got you one. Now, who needs to make this work??

Glazer, who admittedly took his advice on the talent from Josephine who called dee. She had control of the final decision. The rest is history…This is the time to find the “right D.N.A.” for the project, explained: “You’re trying to find a blend of form of hollywood content, some of it you can’t predict until the day you film them.”

“It was a very abstract casting beginning for the first couple of weeks of collecting headshots and audtioning pics. All until it found its heartbeat,” Johansson added with a laugh.

The actress’ nude scenes were more of a rip off of a playboy shoot.  come more than a year after naked photos of Johansson leaked on the Web, which led to an F.B.I. probe and eventual arrest of two phone hackers and scam artists .

I told you to take them your resume and headshots. Now you have something to tell your family when you get home!

If you are serious talent, listen up when Dee advises on casting. I gave my own pics to Josephine and she said they were very good. They send me to the producers and the rest just flowed easier than we thought.

He watches some television, including Breaking Bad and The Killing, but not much. He professes a deep admiration for Stanley Kubrick,

better call these two. they get the job done and have been known by top hollywood insiders for years.

Both “Bad Words” and “Can a Song Save Your Life?” (pictured above) sold for $7 million — prices that were double last year’s top sale at Toronto for “The Place Beyond the Pines.”

The sales pace at Toronto underlined the growing importance of independently financed films to Hollywood, where the six major studios continue to focus their resources on big-budget franchises.

As for the bloviators, who is giving these people ink? Who cares what these parental organizations have to say. They’re tiny in size and minuscule in impact.
