Our friend Vince @ FilmDrunk has the best interview with a film’s extra that I’ve ever read. You should read it if you want to get a look into the side of the biz that Ricky Gervais never quite captured in his little HBO show about those unsung folk known in proper Hollywood vernacular as "background" (because "extras" would imply they are extraneous, and Lord knows that when your protagonist is walking out of a building, or eating in a restaurant, there are always faceless bodies that need to be passing by). Otherwise sh*t just ain’t real.
Anyway, kudos on tracking down Mr. Tennant, Vince. Read the full coverage about MVP: MOST VALUABLE PRIMATE‘s real value HERE.
