A ‪Tumblr That Lets You Vicariously Experience The Ridiculous Life Of An Actor‬

Someday I will sit down and write a book about all of the ridiculous auditions I went on when I was an actress. I will fill pages and pages about my most humiliating experiences — like, the time there was a dog in the room and it was sniffing my crotch while I did a scene about being stranded on an icy mountain or the time one of the producers stopped me in the middle of an audition for a part described as a “slutty bitch” to tell me that my mom was his second grade teacher.

Casting Call!
What part should Ryan Lochte play next?

In this “Access Hollywood” interview, Ryan Lochte spoke “thoughtfully” (nice word choice) about his very first acting role on “90210.” “Memorizing lines, and trying to like, say them and still like, do movement and all that. That was hard,” the Olympian said. Yes Ryan, talking and moving at the same time is hard. That’s why actors get paid so well.

He’s going to have to get used to it if wants a future in Hollywood, as he says he does. Aside from his “90210″ debut, he also expressed interest in appearing on “The Bachelor.” “Before I was training so much that I didn’t have time for a girlfriend … and .. cause I wanted to give that perfect someone, like, my heart,” he explained. “And now that the Olympics are over I definitely want to settle down.” But he wants to settle down with Blake Lively, so the whole “Bachelor” format may not work out. That’s OK, though. We see all sorts of roles in his future. After the jump, our suggestions for Ryan’s burgeoning career. We hope his agent is listening. Keep reading »

Olivia Wilde "Acts Hard"

Last night, Olivia Wilde was on the “The Colbert Report” to promote her new film, “People Like Us.” While that movie looks like a total snooze and I can’t co-sign on Chris Pine’s stupid eyebrows, Olivia seems like a totally rad lady. She stumped for Obama, wore her Dogs Against Romney pin, and challenged Colbert to an acting contest to see “who could act harder.” [Comedy Central]

A couple years ago I was feeling lost. I had graduated college, had some money saved up, and I wanted to try something new. I’d been writing a humorous fashion blog for awhile and I’d been toying with the idea of taking the leap from writing funny things to performing funny things. Tina Fey has always been a huge inspiration for me and I remember reading an interview about how improv had changed her life and thinking, Hey, maybe improv would change my life too. I looked up Tina Fey’s bio on Wikipedia and found out she studied improv at The Second City, an acting school and theater in Chicago where many “Saturday Night Live” alums got their start. So I signed up a for a week-long immersion improv class and I bought a plane ticket to Chicago. Keep reading »

When asked by E! if he envisioned the Jolie-Pitt brood becoming Hollywood royalty like their parents, Jon Voight didn’t hesitate in his answer:

“I do actually … I don’t want to say, but I have a feeling that they will. I have no doubt … Hollywood should be afraid of them. These guys are really something.”

Interesting. I wonder what Brad and Angelina think of that? I can’t see them at all being the type of acting parents who push the profession on their children, or even suggest it to them as a possibility for their future. I would even think that they wouldn’t want their kids to go into it, especially not at a young age. Of course, Angelina and her father have been known to have conflicting opinions, and I don’t doubt that this is one thing they may not agree on. [E! Online]

“Sit down, you forgot to act,” my teacher said, and my cheeks burned.

It was less than two minutes into my scene and he was already stopping it.

I was a 23-year-old acting student. The assignment was to come up with an imaginary circumstance and an activity to go along with it while improvising a scene with a partner who had created his or her own circumstance and activity. As always, I’d worked hard on my homework and spent hours preparing. So I was furious when my teacher cut me off so quickly.

“I’m not even going to bother critiquing that,” he said. “It wasn’t worth it.”

Blinking back tears, I shuffled to my seat with my head down and squeezed into my chair. Keep reading »
