This never happens . . .



An ad in yesterday's Times gave us an unexpected kick...(In today's ad, I've been replaced by something called "Ebert & Roeper"[sp?].)

Strangely, there's no grand mention that DeLillo's at all involved in the project—wouldn't that be a draw? For at least 30, 40 people?

Side note: Griffin Dunne is also excellent as a playwright gone bonkers, and Catherine O'Hara has a brilliant little laugh she deploys exactly once in her single short scene.

Fun fact: I've been quoted on exactly one DVD box in my lifetime -- "Frankie and Johnny Are Married", the previous and vaguely memorable film from Michael Pressman, who directed your "Game 6'.

Adding to the synchronicity, we were both quoted from the same periodical!

Actually, Michael Hoffman and Michael Pressman aren't the same person. But both movies are about offstage shenanigans in the theater world, no?

I bet they're the same person — "Hoff" and "Press" are structurally quite similar...

I can also imagine Joe Q. Public seeing the ad, clapping a beefy hand to forehead, and uttering to his mystified companion, "YES! I must see this! I've been waiting ages for a, what is it, 'gratifying playground of highwire language,' haven't YOU???!!"
