We had our first read-through for "A Christmas Story" last night. The kid cast as Ralphie had to drop out, so the director was reading all the little boys in the cast to see which one might step into the roll.
We got to the scene where Ralphie is imagining that he will save all his friends who are lost deep in the Indiana swamps. Now, you might imagine that Ralphie would be Indiana Jones. Maybe Steve Irwin if you wanted to modernize things a bit more.
Last night, we got a 9-year-old Samuel L. Jackson.
