Patrick Millsaps, a lawyer from Camilla, has become something of a Hollywood broker. He has become the manager for actress Stacey Dash, best known for the role of Dionne in the movie Clueless, and now pitches shows to studios, reads scripts and hangs out with A-list celebrities.
Im still a bumpkin, Millsaps said.

I thought this was going to be about Prince Charles.
No, he's still alive. His dream of reincarnation is still only a dream.
This, as always, explains why movies continue to be so bad.
Why in this instance do you say so?
I don’t disagree with you. This whole story is b.s. and claptrappery, as is Hollywood, or so I see it.
I’m just wondering if there was something in particular here that bothered you.
That was damn funny, btw.
Bonny Prince Charles talking to Boner Prince Charles ha!
I’m sick of non-entities, who have no connection in their lives with the performing or interpretive arts, muscling their way into film, tv and theater and effectively ruining it. Hollywood, especially, allows any sleaze bag with a big mouth to push in on it’s territory.
Sorry for the rant!
Big rants AND deep pockets help get you there, too.
No the rant is exactly what I asked for.
Of course you were also right in your initial post, that it essentially has ALWAYS been this way, right?
As a complete outsider it occurs to me that the “managers” and (as this clown Millsaps puts it) the guys “running the campaign” are there precisely because the talent is too fearful and/or clueless to handle business themselves.
Power abhors a vacuum and so does money.
Not to belabor you on the point (which of course means: yes, I am about to belabor you on the point—ha!) I was reading a WSJ piece this morning about Ben Stiller’s new “Mitty” movie, which I notice via the tube must be opening this weekend.
I’m no longer much of a movie watcher (if I want a “vehicle” I will go out to my garage) but I’ve always thought Stiller has a great fearless character actor’s talent, for instance as Bill Pullman’s much-abused sidekick in “Zero Effect.”
But the piece I read indicated that the film is now budgeted at $90 million, and Stiller himself has worked on sixty different script rewrites.
Miss M, I ask you...I know that $90 million isn’t so much in Hollywood these days, even for what is being billed as a “feel-good movie”...but SIXTY scripts?
Can a player of even Stiller’s genes and experience and brains and moxie make anything but hash out of anything warmed over 60 times?
