Caved by Charlie Vaughn...
7 September 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

On almost every level, this film fails. The script sucks. The choice of how to tell what could have been an interesting story sucks. Most of the acting sucks. Even the sound-sync sucks. But... watch for the guy who plays Sid, the star's assistant. His name is Charlie Vaughn, and he is amazing in this role. While most of the rest of the cast fumfers around on amateur level, Mr. Vaughn shines in a completely realized role. Everyone else involved should be embarrassed -- in a simple change of voice, Mr. Vaughn gives more characterization and history to his small part than all of the leads were capable of in pages and pages of dialogue.

I predict that Charlie Vaughn will be a major star when Hollywood pays attention. Even when he's just playing background, he's amazingly present and right on the nose. Everyone else involved should have paid attention to his work and learned. Bonus points that he's hella-cute.

But... what does it say about a short film when the work of a minor character actor outshines all of the leads? not much for the film itself. But, casting directors pay heed -- there's a star in the making here, even if the rest of the project around him is screaming crap. Book him before someone else does, and you'll earn your place in the CSA hall of fame.
