Chapter 10- Casted

676 36 34

First of all, I am a huge fan of this movie.

Oh stop laughing. It's ingenious! If I could afford posters of this master piece, our room would be filled with them.

The crowd seem to share my excitement, based on the insane screaming and whooping.

Chris jumps off the stage and joins me, Scarlett and Evans by the large doors.

"You happy with that, Rainbow Boy?" he grins and I grin back. Yesyesyesyesyesyesyes.

"Something like that," I say as casually as possible.

"Taika isn't even doing auditions," Pratt screams, bounding towards us with relentless enthusiasm and just as much gracefulness as a bull. "He's got the cast already figured out!"

"Well, I'll be damned." Scarlett breathes. "Do you think he'll cast me as Barnum, Pratt?"

"Depends. Can you grow a beard and gain sixty pounds by October?"

"You can bet your ass I can, baby,"

The two banter back and forth whilst I struggle to think of a reason to feel worried.

Sure, I have to act. I'm acting in one of the best play writes ever written, along side some of the best young actors in La, in one of the best acting schools in the state. No pressure, you know? But I'll be performing with my friends and it's not like I'm going to have an important role anyways...

We are herded into rows leading up to the stage.

Chris leaves us to help the other director's hand out everybody's individual slips of paper.

My palms begin to sweat but for once in my life, it's not because of fear. It's pure, adrenaline evoking excitement.

My hands shake in anticipation as I reach the front of my line. A young woman, whose nametag reads 'Gwyneth Paltrow', hands me my slip with a bright smile.

Shaking, I tear open the package, not quite sure if I'll be disappointed with a crappy part or not.

But, there it was, in bold black letters.

My eyes widen and I gasp.
