Well At Least Katie Will Sell Tickets


Katie Holmes is going to make her Broadway debut this spring, in the drama All My Sons which was written by Arthur Miller. So far, Katie has only committed to doing the workshop for the play which is in May. The play also stars real actors such as John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest. Hey, weren't they married in Footloose? That just came to me. That is very cool.

Anyway, at this point I am considering Katie's performance in Pieces Of April a one off and I am not convinced she is that great of an actress. I know that she probably wants to be taken seriously as an actress, but doing Broadway will just expose every flaw she has as an actress.

Oh, I am sure ticket sales will be through the roof and Scientologists will be out in force buying tickets and forcing the crowd to do standing ovations. Tom Cruise and Suri will show up opening night, and then disappear. Well not actually disappear, just monitor her from afar like when she was shooting Mad Money. Turn up with his fake smile, and soundbytes.

Each night there will be a different celebrity minder in the front row, anxious to get backstage and make sure Katie doesn't say or do anything she is not supposed to. I just creep myself out when I write this. But, you can all see this right? You can see Tom Cruise standing in the front row opening night in his 3 piece suit giving that fake ass smile as he claps the loudest. There will be photos of him outside her dressing room with flowers to give her. Suri will be in Tom's arms. It is all just so staged that even three months in advance we all know how it is going to play out. Don't they know that we know that?

Oh, Tom and Suri will be there -- in the middle of the most intense scene, he'll walk on stage with Suri and a dozen roses, grinning and waving to the crowd.

Arthur Miller must be spinning in his grave. Good: he was a rat.

Puh-lease. Katie Holmes was recruited in her high school for Dawson's Creek. This is not a girl who had the acting bug since birth. She simply got a lucky break, and took it because it would have been stupid not to, whether or not you genuinely can act or want to be an actor. And now she's just trying to keep her head above water so she can keep up the status. I don't feel sorry for her one bit anymore. She got just what she wanted. She's basically just paying lip service to "the craft", and she gets to have an extravagently luxurious life for it.

Trix said...

Note: that wasnt directed anyone or their comments in general, I'm just pissy about Katie Holmes, LOL.

Jennifer said...

of course they don't know. Part of the draw of this cult is to keep the minions totally isolated from the negative world. They are surrounded by yes people and people that worship them. In addition Im sure this particular freak gets some kind of kickback. Great deal if you were an uneducated, insecure, wealthy person trying to come off educated and secure.

jax said...

Trix pissy? LOL...happy friday.

to be a decent actor you need to be able to draw form something..well in Katies case if the tank is empty...you ain't going nowhere. Xenu done sucked her small shred of talent out!

why am i talking like im on Hee Haw. sorry.

califblondy said...

Wow, usually I think something smartassy, but reading that made me feel so sad because it's SOOO true.

Oh well, at least she's got a killer wardrobe out of the deal.

I feel better now.

Twisted Sister said...

Lainie, what's the scoop with Arthur Miller and why was he a rat?

lyz said...

Trix, I agree. I never felt sorry for KatE. Her "poor little rich girl" story rubs me the wrong way.

Stephe96 said...

An Arthur Miller play called "ALL My Sons?" Now THAT is rich!!!!

(It's ironic, see, because about 40 years ago Miller had a son born with Downs Syndrome or something...and he was so ashamed he sent the kid away and totally ignored him for the rest of his life!)

Ayesha said...

Are there any people out there who really believe the Tom and Katie story? Everyone I know seems to understand that it's a contract marriage, that the Scientos are basically keeping her hostage in plain sight, etc. It's common knowledge, as far as I can see. It's an open secret.

Are there people naive enough to believe the PR?

jax said...

yes Ayesha, the same people who like Clay Aiken, think Barry Manilow is straght and that Richard Simmons just really likes to wear dolphin shorts.

Twisted Sister said...

Stephe, he was reunited with his son in later years, prompted by Daniel Day-Lewis who visits his brother in law often.

Sad, but I think Arthur Miller was extremely talented and tortured by the whole thing and just couldn't handle it at the time. He was put through hell by HUAC and I think that had something to do with the way he lived the rest of his life.

lainiekazan said...

Twisted Sister, aside from the news about his disabled son that you see above, he was totally disinterested when called with the news that his ex-wife Marilyn Monroe had died (it's on Google, somewhere, and was re-printed very recently.)

Trix said...

hee hee jax do you have my number or what

I'm trying VERY hard, however, to be less offensive to posters here. I know I know, I slip up, but I DO try to behave and save my venom for those who really deserve it, lol.

Twisted Sister said...

Lainie, thanks. I hate hearing those kinds of whack things about people with so much talent and I still pity what the man went through with HUAC.

I just want to know HOW TC is taller than KatE in that photo...I mean HOW?????

Twisted Sister said...

She's shorter than he is whenever she has a long dress on, because she's bending the shit out of those legs of hers.

Tennessee Williams was the greatest American playwright because his greatest strength was his characterizations.

I never understood what was so great about Arthur Miller, his style was so generic and plot so predictable with stock characters. And cliched lines that remind me of corny movies in which something happens and someone looks up and bellows, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!" or "WHY?!?!?!?!?!"

Edward Albee, David Rabe, Sam Shephard, some others that I have compressed in my memory to save hard disk space are brilliant American writers with that distinctly American flavor that I cannot explain.

Arthur Miller is annoying, as a writer. Willy Nelson or something, what a cheesy name.

AMD said...

Twisted, I was just about to say something. LOL, standing like that makes her look like a chimp with ground sweeping arms.

What the fuck is wrong with him?

Jessy Jane said...

The sight alone of Tom Cruise makes me want to eat a handful of Xanax...

Twisted Sister said...

AMD, I honestly think that being with TC has left Katie looking less attractive. Half the time in the pics she looks huge compared to him and other times her heads looks giganto next to his. She would have looked so much more consistently attractive (or normal) if she'd married someone a little bit bigger than she is.
