TV Fact #137 – February 26th, 2015:

The 2012 miniseries “Game Change” chronicles the real life 2008 presidential campaign of presidential candidate John McCain (Played by Ed Harris), albeit slightly humorously, and so to enhance the cutting-in of actual newscast footage, the production carefully placed background actors in the audience scenes to resemble actual audience members in convention and town-hall scenes. It’s all about the little details.

Movie Fact #776 – February 26th, 2015:

Director Richard Glatzer, co-director of the 2014 film “Still Alice” along with director Wash Westmoreland, suffers from ALS and can’t speak. He directed the film using a text to speech app on an iPad. Both actress Julianne Moore, who plays the lead character Dr. Alice Howland, and actress Kristen Stewart, who plays the character Lydia Howland, dedicated their “Ice Bucket Challenge” to Glatzer.

On a rather humorous side note, Moore previously was featured in the 2011 film “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” as the character Sarah Weaver in which she remarks that she saw the latest “Twilight” film and that it was, as she quoted, “So bad”. The Twilight franchise starred Kristen Stewart as the character Bella Swan who appears in “Still Alice” with Moore. I wonder if Moore apologized.
