It seems already there are significant problems facing the Director. American superstar Tugg Speedman has arrived on set, and is not seeing eye to eye with our Director, Damien.
Today in rehearsals, Tugg arrived troublingly unprepared. He seemed more concerned with the clothes he would be wearing on film, rather than the films more important themes of courage, heroism, and loss of innocence. Several times in rehearsals, he has shown a shocking inability to learn even the simplest of lines. He frequently seems to oversimplify and undermine the story’s tenderness. During a break from shooting, Tugg called Damien into his trailer, where his ineptitude became even clearer to all present. Damien was at a loss for words. I am growing more skeptical of Mr. Speedman’s abilities as an actor.
