A Star is Born? How many times they gonna remake that one? The last version with Babs Striesand and Kris Krisstofferson was just awful - so Clint has nowhere to go but up.
Elvis Presley was offered Kris Krisstofferson’s part but the Colonel Parker intervened. He demanded Elvis get top billing. That sunk the deal. Probably would have been good in it. elvis was also offered Glen Campbell’s role in “True Grit”. Same demands for top billing over John Wayne. Same result. Anyway, Clint probably offered Beyonce the role to see if she would take the bait and work for a conservative. Decisions are made and lived with. She can remain a B-list personality.
