Ashley Judd is 'Bug'ed
Monday, May 28, 2007 - reddit
Cinematical has part of a Q&A held between
entertainment reporters journalists and some of the cast and producers of the film Bug, which I've heard isn't terribly good. The film starts off with typical fare -- Agnes White (played by Judd) has to deal with a violent ex played by Harry Connick Jr. (which is either brilliant, or incredibly stupid.) White's new found savior goes native on her, exhorting wild conspiracy theories about cults and UFO's, which somehow degrades into a movie about people having to deal with "infestation of parasites and insects."
And to think, somebody actually greenlit this thing. Wow. Bug debuted on Friday up against Pirates 3, but that's still no excuse for only bringing in $3.3 million for the entire weekend. This one is a certifiable bomb, as far as I'm concerned.
Question: Was it an easy decision, for you to sign on for this one?
Ashley Judd: It was very easy for me to decide to do Bug. Billy had been good enough to send the script to my agent. [..]
Suggestion to Judd: fire your agent, you both are clueless when it comes to knowing the difference between a good script and a roll of toilet paper with your name on it.
Read it if you must, but there are better things to do today. Like eating. Or taking a nap.
