Another Film Bites a Hand In Hollywood

[from the NY Times | Thanks Andy]


But it is another character who stands out to industry insiders who have seen “Every Day,” which had its premiere in the spring at the Tribeca Film Festival. That is the self-obsessed television impresario named Garrett, who dangles petty threats and delights in creating story lines that are increasingly ludicrous. The British actor and performance artist Eddie Izzard plays the role.

Most of Mr. Izzard’s scenes take place in a writer’s room for a fictional show called “Mercy Medical.” Swearing profusely, Garrett prods the writing team for scripts that are more salacious. “Keep it fresh — and sexual,” Garrett snaps. “There’s not enough sex in this episode anyway. And do it by Thursday.” When a writer played by Carla Gugino suggests a crude story line involving a Dalmatian, he smiles. “Yes! Bestiality, the final frontier. I love it!”
