Living a block from Central Park in Manhattan, I’ve been known to get a bit grouchy come Saturday morning when yet another group of runners clog the streets and walkways and generally disrupt my morning walk.
Don’t they know we dog people own the park?
But today there was a run that even I can get behind –
The New York City Cupcake Run
This 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) race for people of all ages challenges participants to go the distance while stopping to eat three cupcakes at checkpoints along the course. Tasty!
People were horrified at first at the mere mention of a Ghostbusters reboot.
An all-female cast? Blasphemy.
Then names like Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock were tossed around. And director Paul Feig tweeted a confirmation that the remake was indeed happening.
Now the tide appears to have turned, and everyone is stoked. Actresses that aren’t even known for comedy are publicly ‘begging’ to be cast.
Gillian Anderson, for example.
True, she’s got plenty of experience hunting otherworldly creatures on The X-Files…but comedy?
Not so much.
But when I think about some of the biggest moves I’ve made in my career, they didn’t start with your typical cover letter-resume-interview. I picked up the phone and asked for the job. Who knows? Might work the same in Hollywood.
So, go get ‘em, Gillian.
You could be exactly what this crazy redo needs.
