because they didn’t like his politics.
Which doesn’t surprise you. What may surprise you is just how horrible and evil people in show biz really are. I thought I knew. Hey, I’ve seen Sunset Boulevard! Five times!!
Then I started listening to the Adam Carolla podcast; his candid descriptions of, say, what happens during a development deal and the process of shooting a TV pilot and how people build you up, just to knock you down, and how you do people favors and they never pay you back, will make your soul shrink as you listen. He names names, too. And posts unflattering photos of them. And swears a lot.
(In a previous episode, he talked about how “They” wanted to make his movie into a TV show, but of course, “They” also wanted to change to old Nicaraguan guy into a 20 something black kid or something — oh and instead of a roofer and a boxer, can we change it to…?)
If you think you want to be in show biz, you’re wrong. Unless you’re a sociopath.
