Just read where Judi Dench was refused an appearance on Today, Good Morning America and one other show, because she did not fit their demographics. Very sad. Harvey Weinstein was quoted in the article, so I don't think he would have much cause to annoy these shows unnecessarily, but could be wrong.
The next one I read was Francis Ford Coppola comparing making good movies to making a fine wine. He said with fine wine you start with the grapes, for movies, you start with the work you do with the actors. Call me crazy, but I would have thought the script was the foundation. :) What do I know? Does that mean the script is the manure maybe? :)
