Would you sell out for a shot?

Suppose you had the opportunity to be in a major Hollywood motion picture that was guaranteed to be released to movie theaters.

You could be the leading actor, the screenwriter, the director, the producer, the director of photography — whatever your preference.

Everything was guaranteed. It’s a real shot at the big time, your opportunity to play a major role in a movie. Plus the salary is Hollywood-sized — let’s say a million dollars just for round numbers, for a few months of work.

The only catch: The movie is Policy Academy 17.

Would you do it?

If your answer is yes, now suppose the script for movie is, in your opinion, both racist and sexist, and those elements can’t be changed.

Would you still do it?

If your answer is yes, now suppose you have to become a cannibal and eat Steve Guttenberg.

    Hmmm… outside the canabalism portion, I’d be in. And to protect my good name, I’d say I’m doing it to shine a light on these social issues and turn over 1/3 of my salary to organizations combatting those things. Then I’d ride the wave of talk show appearances and perhaps additional roles and invest my money in something safe like gold bars. šŸ˜‰ Besides, I always wanted to learn how to be a human beat box.
