[Blind Gossip] When a film achieves box office success, it is natural for everyone to start thinking about a sequel. However, things became a little awkward for the makers of this hit film when an actor who was not part of the original cast tried to get himself cast in the sequel.
The actor – whose career and personal life has had its ups and downs – relentlessly pursued the star of the original film in an attempt to land a role for himself. We’re not just talking about him expressing an interest. We’re talking about Up and Down actively soliciting the part in public interviews, telling people that he was sure he was going to get the role, and sending emails and text messages and videos and photos of himself to Original.
Original rejected Up and Down, but it wasn’t because of all the full-court press. It was because of Up and Down’s off-screen antics. Original simply didn’t want to risk having his successful franchise derailed by an addict who can not seem to control his partying and attention-seeking behavior.
