Finally, I'm Going to be a Movie Star
Since I don't have much else to do, I figured that becoming a movie star would be fun. After all, it looks like they're having fun, especially on that red carpet. Yesterday I wrote about my work together with Michael Moore.
He only needs to do that interview he promised and then I'll be all set.
But he hasn't called and my contact person just left his team.
So, when another film team from Hollywood called me a month ago and asked if I wanted to participate in a movie which was going to premier either at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2007 or in Cannes, I figured, this is it. I've got my shot at stardom.
And then, when I learned that the guy who contacted me was nominated for an Oscar in 2003, and his producing partner won the Oscar that year for Best Documentary with BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE, I was sold.
Apparently, he also won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004 with FAHRENHEIT 9/11.
And I didn't feel bad about working with the competition. After all, if Michael Moore doesn't call back about "Sicko," I figured I could work with these guys.
And contrary to Moore, who hasn't yet shown up, these guys did fly in from L.A. last week. We spent an afternoon together and they learned a lot about growth hormone that they had no idea about and so did I.
My biggest surprise came when one of them pulled out a package with growth hormone which he had ordered from a compounding pharmacy on the net. If it wasn't fake, I'd guess that pharmacy had replaced the manufacurer's label on the bottle with their own.
I had no idea you could simply go on the net and get that stuff, including syringes and needles.
So what about the movie?
I'd love to tell you about it, but they asked me to keep the content confidential. So that's what I'll do.
But come next year, I'll go to the premier and write all about it, just like Arianna so famously spends her time. Come to think of it, because that is what Arianna Huffington does, I'll probably not do that.
Feels kind of cheap and vulgar.
But I will go.
If I get tickets.
