I’m not an actress or anything, but I guess I must be some sort of muse to some people! I’ve had a few songs written about/for me, been characterized in multiple filmmaker friends’ movies, and been in a music video, a short, a feature length, and some print ads for fun.
So, I get an email today from a high school acquaintance who’s asking me to be in a movie of his – he got studio funding and has written a part specifically for me in his screenplay and wants me to play some evil psycho! He says it’s based off of Penelope Cruz’ character in Vicky Cristina Barcelona and there’s some giant bangbus scene. Uhhh… WUT? I’m thinking that unless I’m standing to the side laughing maniacally, FH would NOT be cool with any of that!
Compounded by the fact that I’m getting married in 4 months and don’t have time for this kind of thing anyway, it’s not something I’m considering doing.
I am curious though, would you ever do something like that? Am I just being stuffy or does that sound about right? He said I wouldn’t have to do anything I’m not comfortable with, so that makes me think there’s something raunchy in the script… and these leeps are for FH only! ;D

I’d do it for sure. But no nudity or anything super-raunchy.

What’s a bangbus? Like a gangbang? Yeah, I would so not be comfortable doing that; there’s a reason I’m not a professional actress…

I likely would, but I’ve done a lot of acting. HOWEVER under those circumstances, I’d totally want to see a script first.

@elliestan: nope. I was asked to play one of dracula’s wives in an indy movie. I said “no way” when (we’ll call him “JJ”) JJ said there’d be nudity involved.
My FI is also part of a couple other friends’ movies, but when I found out about certain scenes in one particular movie, I told him I wasn’t comfortable with him being part of it and asked (ok, told) him to not be involved. In fact, I told him if he even THOUGHT of doing one scene that involved a naked woman in his arms, there’d be REAL problems between us!!! (He agreed and said he wouldn’t do it and he didn’t know that was in the script…. I love being able to read the scripts he’s sent, hehehehehehehe).
I think it’s awesome that your friend has studio funding and is wanting you to be part of it, but I think he’s not being very respectful with the part he wants you to do, though!

@Mrs. Spring: from my understanding, it’s doing it in a van or something like that. i can’t be sure, but i’m guessing it’s something along those lines at least!
yeah, he said it’s a film about our generation told in a Dogme 95/Gonzo-like fashion. not a lot to go off of! he sent me a rough script a few months back (:cough: that i never read…) not sure if i still have it though.
