Mandy Moore vies for role in 'Guys and Dolls' musical remake, gets told to wait till the male leads are cast
Mandy Moore recently made some shocking revelations on good friend Busy Phillips' talk show, 'Busy Tonight' that make it clear that Holywood still has a long way to go.
In spite of women empowerment taking the spotlight in films and television today with blockbusters like 'Wonder Woman', 'Captain Marvel' and 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' it looks like the reality may be a bit different off camera. The 'This is Us' actress, Mandy Moore, recently made some shocking revelations on good friend Busy Phillips' talk show, 'Busy Tonight' that make it clear that Holywood still has a long way to go.
After welcoming her to the show, Busy went to talk to her guest about her dream role. "You recently tweeted about your dream role and I think we kind of have the same one," said Busy. As it turns out, Busy and Mandy both want to be part of the remake of the 1955 classic musical 'Guys and Dolls' and are eyeing the role. "Busy and I will both be vying for the role of Adelaide," she said. Mandy went on to talk about just how much she wanted to play the role of Adelaide, a character that has been portrayed by the likes of Lauren Graham, Julia McKenzie and Vivian Blaine in its many remakes. But, Mandy ran into a little problem.
"I was sending the bat signal to my folks and I told them I just want to get in the room, I'll sing, I'll do whatever I have to do and they were like 'they want to cast the male leads first and then they will talk about who the ladies are," she said, "That's Hollywood for you, it's still where we are! It's 2019 and that's still what we are up against!"
Busy, never late when it comes to calling things as exactly what they are, quipped, "bullsh**!"For all of the talk, things are still run by a bunch of white men so until you get them out of their positions, there is no f***ing chance for the rest of us."
