Books Info:

What Just Happened? free pdf In this uproarious tale of what it is to make movies, we get to explore, at close range, finicky directors, clueless executives, shameless marketers, famous actors, battered screenwriters, and hapless producers crossing paths in such calamitous ways that it's a miracle these films get made at all. Whether he's trying to persuade an executive that Gwyneth Paltrow has enough chin to carry the lead in a movie, forcing an enraged Alec Baldwin to shave off his mountain-man beard, discussing ankle hair loss with Dustin Hoffman, or sitting through an excruciating reading of a David Mamet script as Robert De Niro toys with the notion of heading up the cast, Art Linson gives a brutally honest and comprehensive tour through the horrors of Hollywood, from script to screen.
