So I shot for Break A Leg this last Thursday, and it was of course one of the most enjoyable cluster-fucks this side of the San Fernando Valley.
The Conversation hasn’t aired yet, so I don’t want to spoil too much, but suffice it to say that Justin is a cheap son of a bitch when it comes to buying props. I mean the prop was beer, so one would assume he’d just go whole-hog and buy the damn six-pack but no! He only buys one bottle.
I naturally did not show up completely knowing my lines, but I have a job and a toddler so that’s my excuse in hand. I wasn’t worried, since I was shooting with Flynn and everyone knows that when you’re shooting with Flynn you have about 20 extra minutes to study your lines while you’re waiting for him to show up. This proved true last Thursday as well, so I had that going for me.
The best part about Yuri is that a while back, he would get annoyed that I kept mentioning the quality of food (or lack thereof) on his shoots. Someone picked up on that in an article and it was really getting his goat, so I backed off.
You see where we’re going with this, right?
So shortly after I arrive and begin ravenously attacking the компютри втора употребаcarrots and grapes sitting on the hood of Justin’s car, two pizzas arrive. Now let me be clear, I had already had dinner and was not hungry, but I’m not one to pass up offered snacks (said carrots and grapes), nor proferred pizza. I didn’t ask for the pizza because I didn’t need any, I wasn’t hungry, but by the way I was attacking those baby carrots I don’t anyone would have really known that had they been paying attention.
The thing is, no pizza was proferred. Dashiell ate his pizza, which is 100% cool because he’s crew and the editor, so he works on Break A Leg about 100x times more than I do because he has to work on literally every second of footage that’s shot. Yuri on the other hand, well, one could say he does as well since he writes and directs and stars, but therein lies the rub. Pizza for the nobles, grapes and carrots for the peasants.
There wasn’t even any beer left afterwards since Justin only bought one, and Flynn dropped it.
But hey, this is why I love working with these guys.
Yuri is going to be so pissed after reading this.
