Let's face it. I just hate Tom Rowen. Why? For the same reason you're about to hate him.
1. All I ever see him do is eat, and
2. he's thin and handsome.
So obviously those are valid reasons to hate someone. We're all in agreement there. I don't even have to go into his acting talent or his writing talent.
Well then why (you might ask) do you look at each new script and say to yourself "What role is in it for Tom?" Well that's a fine, fine question to ask.
An excellent question. Yes. A mighty fine question. Why? Why indeed?
I guess it's so I have to suffer with his good looks and... and his just being so damn thin all the time. It's my punishment. It's the penance I was offered for that whole thing that went down on New Mars in '48. I'm not supposed to talk about it. Government robots. You know the drill.
Anyway, when Tom's not being overly photogenic and offering to do sound/boom or move stuff around, he does also write and will one day hand us a completed screenplay. And yes, it will Save the Cat.
Here's Mr. Rowen on his most distraught day on Day 2. His character doesn't end well. Tom himself, well, his end is... well...
(That was a long night.)
