    I read a couple books about Mae. She did not hit Hollywood until she was nearing 40 and this was part of her comic appeal (the idea of all these men falling over a woman not exactly a spring chicken).

    Is Bette in this age bracket now, or supposed to pass for it?

    I have been designated to hire those guys for her. Report to my office tomorrow for a lengthy audition. Bring along a bodybuilder friend or two.

    The mere thought of this makes me cringe.

    They'd have to cast for Mickey Hargitay & Paul Novak & all the bodybuilders she surrounded herself with during all her events.....

    Really? This hasn't happened decades ago? Seems a little late now. Anyway, she already got to do Janis.

    Personally, I'd prefer Kathleen Turner. Again, decades ago.
