This director is foreign born.
He has directed some good things, but for the most part it has all been television.
There is not one three camera sitcom in his credits.
I don’t think.
I don’t know every foreign show he has directed.
Not the point.
The point is that I like the guy.
He also has a foreign born B+ list mostly television actress significant other from a hit pay cable show.
Apparently on one of the shows he directed, she stopped by the set.
Nice of her.
The thing is, it ultimately led to him getting kicked off the show. Not so much kicked off as never invited back after that episode where she showed up to watch.
The star of that particular show is a B+/A- list mostly television actor who has done some decent movies and likes to get his own way.
What he really wanted was a chance at the actress girlfriend.
He hit on her hard.
Every second practically she was there.
He also talked down to her director boyfriend the entire time.
Basically he was a complete and utter a-hole.
He thought the actress would find him more attractive than the director and was shocked she didn’t want to hook up with him while her boyfriend was setting up a shot.
So, at the end of the day, our actor had some drugs put in the trailer of the director.
He then had an assistant take a photo of the drugs.
Our actor then called one of the producers of the show and said that a tabloid has just contacted him about some photos of drugs on the set.
No tabloid called or even knew.
Our actor forwarded the photo and the next thing you know the director was gone.
Our actor then waited a couple of days and called up the actress girlfriend and said he was available and employed if she ever wanted to hook up. Slimy.
