OMG… I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.
James Franco is currently looking for an actress to join his new low-budge film, an adaptation of the book The Sound and the Fury. But before all you struggling thespians out there get too excited about shopping sprees and fancy meals if you get the part, there’s one caveat: it’s for really low pay. But don’t worry, because the casting call letter reminds you that working with James is enough of an award.
“For those wanting to work with James, that in itself can be considered great currency,” it reads. “He is a fantastic director and quite loyal to his actors!! This story is both deep and rich!”
I totally get that you have to start somewhere when trying to make it in the industry, and I understand low budgets (I mean, I’ve never had one, but I understand the concept…) but did they really have to put that part in there? That alone would deter me from auditioning. Do you agree?
