UPDATE: Official Casting Call Here.
Blogging is much more fun than Facebook. You can set up a sitemeter on it, and just by seeing who's looking, you can learn stuff. Stuff that tells me that Google Trends hit my blog because the search term True Grit is red-hot "on fire" trending right now. Huh. Who knew?
So I ping it back and find out that the Cohen brothers are doing a remake of True Grit. There's a casting call out in Austin. Wild coincidence.
Want more coinkydink?
I should volunteer to keep the matriarchal family name in the remake, since my mother's cousin, Strother Martin, appeared in the original movie. Now you know. Now I know.
2nd Update re: comments: Heh. Except for Tom Selleck as a suggested leading man, y'all are crazy. Look in the dictionary under grizzled and you'll see Robert Duvall, Sam Elliot, Tommy Lee Jones. Tom Selleck would definitely get my vote.
