'Children of the Corn' Casting Video

Lest you think Hollywood moviemaking is all glitz and glamour and power lunches and red carpet premieres, here's a little clip from yesterday's open casting call for the Sci-Fi Channel's upcoming remake of Stephen King's Children of the Corn. My friend Jamie (who's an accomplished actress and acting teacher in her own right with roles in Just Before Dawn, TV's Falcon Crest, and myriad TV guest appearances including Two and a Half Men last season) is the casting director on the film, and you'll hear her speaking to the throngs of people who showed up at a hotel in Bettendorf, Iowa, on a Sunday morning. It's astounding how many Iowaians want in on this movie!

New Children of the corn! This is big Kindertrauma news and in fact, may signal the official start of global Kindertraumamania! We want scoops and we want them often. By the way, tell Jaime that I can play young (without the 12 foot-long white beard, bifocals and wheelchair you'd swear I was 10!) and I'm prepared to drop any and everything to fly to Iowa and swing a scythe at some folks!
