I was almost in it too! I auditioned for the part of the girlfriend. You know, the one who wears the sleep mask on her head.
Ann Magnuson suggested that these people call me to read for the part.
So, I went to Ann Carlysle's loft on 14th Street at 10:30 in the morning and was greeted by her wearing that same wacky makeup she wears in the movie. She was in a wheelchair with her ankles bandaged up and wearing platform shoes. She said she had sprained her ankles falling off the shoes and that she needed to wear them to keep her feet in the right position... while sitting in a wheelchair.
She told me I would have to do some "intense" things in the movie. I was like, sure, I don't care. Then she gave me the script and put me in a little room to learn my scene. Looking at the script I realized that being in this movie would be a major embarrassment. I wandered into the kitchen and saw a half gallon bottle of vodka - perfect for my jittery nerves. I poured a tumbler full and brought it back to the room.
By the time they came to get me, I was so drunk! My first line was, "So you got fucked by some freak from New Jersey, big deal!" I giggled through the whole scene and don't even remember walking home afterward.
Oh, and that character was supposed to be Adele Bertei!
