If It's Yellow Let It Mellow

On Friday I met (and this time actually spoke to) another celeb. Some people (probably just Andrew) will remember her from that TV show "Action!"
Her name is Illeana Douglas, she's been in a lot of stuff. I remember her in the movie Stir of Echoes too. My supervisor, the real assistant was in the other room when she came in so I did my best high powered Hollywood assistant and asked how she was doing and said that the producer would see her in a moment, etc.

On Saturday I helped one of my roommates shoot part of his movie.
We dragged like 20 feet of dolly park to Pan Pacific park and set it up with a briefcase dolly. His movie is about a white guy who wants to be a Shaolin Monk in Chinatown.

Saturday night I helped another classmate with her movie (I don't know what this helpful streak is all about, it's not me) where I played some guy who gets jumped and beat up by this guy and girl both wearing eyeliner. In real life the girl wouldn't be a factor and the guy was a head shorter than me. I think I could probably take them.
I'm still not really sure what the movie is about.

Sunday I read and did coverage on that book for my internship. It turned out to be pretty good. I would recommend reading it but I wouldn't necessarily say that some producers should shell out $15 million to turn it into a movie. If it was a movie though I would watch it and be snobby about it because I read the book.

My internship is pretty cool. I see a lot of cool movie stuff every time. Today we went to the storage unit and my supervisor showed me this mask:
that Thora Birch wore in Ghost World. There is a lot of cool stuff in there. Stuff that was in real movies.

More later, I have to do some reading for tomorrow. I'm back on eBay by the way.

Is that the show where Jay Mohr was a movie producer and he got killed 3/4 of the way through the season because the show got canceled?
