Entertainment Scoop

You know what’s weird? When I was a kid, it felt like every big name in the acting business comprised a sort of… actors’ club, I guess? Y’know, Clint Eastwood, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rosie O’Donnell, Woody Allen, Cher- well, I could list names all night. The point is, it kinda seemed like everyone in the biz just kind of knew each other back then, y’know? Granted, I watched a lot of Warner Brothers cartoons growing up like Animaniacs and Tiny Toons, both of which had a penchant for referencing the Hollywood stars, so maybe that’s where that notion is coming from.

But even so, it feels like it’s harder to name lots of celebrities in rapid succession. Maybe it’s because movies themselves have become more prolific than the actors in them? Like, you do a Godfather impression for someone, that same impression could easily double as a Marlon Brando one. I can’t think of a multi-functional situation like that anymore. Well, maybe Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, but that’s the only one I can really think of.

I wanna get back to that. Celebrities shouldn’t only be prolific because of the characters they play (though that is certainly a factor), but because they themselves are real characters in their own right. That’s why we here at Twistity keep our finger on the pulse of the entertainment industry, eagerly awaiting for that wonderful day when an actor emerges from their character and becomes a household name (preferably not because of a scandal, but news is news).
