Two studio executives made a bet.
The bet was who could get a movie greenlit with the worst possible casting choices.
Box office poison type stuff.
The first studio executive managed to get what he thought would be a sure fire winner for the bet.
This former A+ list mostly movie actor who is a racist, sexist woman beater starring in a Christmas movie. Had to be a winner right?
Not so fast.
The other executive said hold my beer and she managed to get a movie to yes with that same former A+ lister and a younger version of the former A+ lister without the religious issues but with much more racist and substance abuse issues.
This is what the movie system has turned into.
Studio executive #1: Mel Gibson
Movie: Fatman – He plays Santa Claus
Studio executive #2: Mel Gibson & Shia La Beouf
