Here’s the thing… I’ll take an audience’s immersion over the slap wall of celebrity casting for “risk-aversion’ every time. The only “celebrities” I’ll cast are ones whose celebrity doesn’t outshine their immersion… & only in characters that are deeply complex, challenged and juicy where they have to work for it. THAT is how you make shows like Sopranos, Game of Thrones, Hill Street Blues, All in the Family, Downton Abbey. You cast unknowns with vast amounts of empathy and abilities to react rather than ‘act’… I’ll take it 1000x over the misinformed concept of famous people make better films and television. – at Hyvquarters
