OMG! Yesterday I mention Amanda Bynes in the same paragraph as Pazuzu, and somehow that caused her to retire from acting entirely! It’s all my fault! Now we’ll be robbed of seeing her misguided attempt at an “edgy” makeover, ala Lindsay Lohan in I Know Who Killed Me… which is a shame, because I had her pegged for a remake of the Linda Blair vigilante-revenge drama, Savage Streets. Ah well. I actually thought Bynes was pretty funny, if a tad OTT, in She’s the Man, but that’s about all I’ve seen of her work… she’s certainly one of the cutest actresses around, but she hasn’t made much of an impact this side of the Atlantic.
Apparently one of the issues that prompted her to retire was that she never had any creative input into the projects she was involved with… so if you’re out there, Amanda, and looking for a writer to collaborate with… someone who is more than happy to work alongside you night and day to help you craft your vision… well, I’m your man! Let’s do brunch.
