I'm listening to an ABBA album of Manolo's in the gray room while making script notes. Can't seem to concentrate on it, Ginko levels be damned. Last week a reporter asked me what role I had passed on that I now regretted. At the time I was in a bad mood. The tea at the production office was a mess: British and milky. So I lied and said I had no idea. Then I said I had no regrets. That fell on the reporters ears about as elegantly as a drunk cat on marbles. But now it's got me thinking. The answer might be the villan in The Great Muppet Caper. I like the idea of leading an all-woman team of cat theves, but who wouldn't? This is not to say Charles Grodin didn't do a bang-up job. I'm sure he did, although I've never seen the picture. The script is still around here somewhere.
