|Insert Arnie catch phrase|
Wednesday, April 6, 2011
And now, a couple more entries into the Hollywood Dictionary. If there are terms you want defined, please send them along to TempX@tempdiaries.com...
Type: Producers are always looking for ways to keep costs down. They do this by moving productions to Vancouver and pretending it's New York as seen in Fantastic Four and Rumble in the Bronx. They do this by hiring unpaid interns for "food and credit." And one other way is by hiring an actor's "Type." Or simply put a cheaper version of the actual one. For example, if you can't afford Arnold Schwarzenegger because he wants $15 million to beat up aliens, Libyans or some other kind of bad guy, a producer might say, "Get me an Arnold Schwarzenegger-type." This typically results in the hiring of Roland Kickenger. This also typically results in your movie going direct to DVD.
