    Found this on PRWEB:

    ActorCast Launches New Audition Showcase for Actors

    ActorCast announces the start of its latest audition showcase featuring industry panelists Carissa Stewart of United Talent Agency; Brendan Wayne, actor and grandson of John Wayne; and director and casting director Risa Bramon Garcia ("Wall Street", "Fatal Attraction", "Speed"). ActorCast showcases allow actors to put themselves on video reading a monologue and have their audition viewed by fellow actors, the industry expert panelists and, if they are selected, 450+ top casting offices worldwide.

    (PRWEB) January 15, 2010 -- ActorCast announces the start of its latest audition showcase featuring industry panelists Carissa Stewart of United Talent Agency; Brendan Wayne, actor and grandson of John Wayne; and director and casting director Risa Bramon Garcia ("Wall Street", "Fatal Attraction", "Speed"). ActorCast showcases allow actors to put themselves on video reading a monologue and have their audition viewed by fellow actors, the industry expert panelists and, if they are selected, 450+ top casting offices worldwide.

    After reviewing the submissions, the panel offers feedback to the top 10 actors and will choose a winner to be featured on the front page of Actorcast.com, seen by actors and agents, and ActorCast's sister-site, Cast It, the leading industry site for casting directors. Actors featured on Cast It are seen by over 450 casting offices world wide, including the casting departments of every major film and television studio. Past winners of ActorCast showcases have had their videos viewed thousands of times and have found the experience invaluable. Even those who do not make the top 10 find the experience helpful because they can see the videos of the other actors and see the feedback received by the top 10.

    It's a level of exposure that can really advance someone's career. "I'm logged in to Cast It all day, every day, and the banner ad at the top is the most prominent thing I see on my home screen. The information in that spot reaches every casting office in L.A," says Molly Green, casting assistant on the upcoming Thor.

    So whether an actor is just starting out or very experienced, ActorCast audition showcases provide a valuable experience, and its FREE for ActorCast premium members. To learn more, visit www.actorcast.com

    Re: Articles About John Wayne

    And yet another article that caught my eye, "Would John Wayne approve of Cowboys & Aliens?"



    Brendan Wayne keeps wondering what his granddad would think of Cowboys & Aliens....

    Brendan figures his grandfather would have initially been incredulous. "He would probably do as I did and ask, 'What's the name of this thing?' - and ask about five times more."


    But he also believes the grandfather he adores would have kept his mind open to the idea of a science-fiction western.

    Good article. And, I must admit, I want to see this film.

    Re: Duke's Famous Grandchildren- Brendan Wayne

    Found another article in the same vein, but with a few minor differences. "'Cowboys & Aliens' features John Wayne's Grandson in a role that might have surprised the Duke"

    “I didn't get the John Wayne concept,” Brendan Wayne said. “I thought that was granddaddy, and didn't everybody's granddad ride horses and stuff?”


    He remembers thinking of the man as “a big, goofy, you know, granddad ... just a really gentle, sweet, funny guy.”
    “I was on the set of ‘The Shootist,' and I thought, ‘Oh, I betcha other people's parents and grandparents, this is where they worked.' Like, you know, this is normal. It wasn't until he passed that I was, like, Oh wait, he was a little more extraordinary than I had thought.

    It started when he was sick and everybody at school was writing him get-well cards. And I went to Catholic school. I said to the nun, I said, ‘Sister Roberta Ann, my best friend Tony, his grandpa was sick, and the whole school didn't write him cards.'

    You know, I think Harrison's in this movie, to be honest with you, because he's the closest thing we have to that character type. He's as tough as they get.
    I find it interesting that the publicity department chose to play up the John Wayne angle.
