This is the time of year when the new shows for the fall and winter television seasons are being cast. For those who are committed to a current show that has already been picked up for an additional season, it is usually smooth sailing. There are even a lucky few who have been offered a role in a new show in addition to their current show. Usually Show 2 is clearly defined as being in second position to Show 1. That is, except for one particular actor who is playing games with his level of commitment to his current show. In public, he is very precise and rehearsed in his wording about how happy and dedicated he is to Show 1, and very gracious about the opportunity to also take on Show 2. In private, though, it’s a different story. He is very unhappy about both the quality of writing and the size of his role on Show 1, and has quietly expressed interest in ditching the first role to accept the second role. His exact words to me were “Get me the f* off this f*ing show!” We don’t know if his original contract allows him that flexibility, but he sure seems serious about making the jump.
