Just when you thought that Tara Reid's career was over, THR is now reporting that she has joined the cast of the indie comedy "Last Call." The new movie is a buddy film that stars Travis Van Winkle (Friday the 13th) and Ryan Hansen (Friday the 13th) as cousins forced to run a family pub. The supporting cast includes Christopher Lloyd, Tom Arnold, Dave Foley, Diora Baird, Clint Howard, John Capodice, David DeLuise and Richard Riehle. Greg Garthe is making his feature directorial debut on the film, written by Scott Donnelly and Erik Lindsay (American Pie Presents Beta House). The production is currently shooting in and around Los Angeles. »
It can be quite disappointing to see a beloved actor pop up in a terrible movie, but I'd say it's worse to see them in a terrible movie with a cast of people who used to be well-known. There's something about the has-been stigma that just hurts. One could excuse away bad movies to behind-the-scenes conflict or the need for cash (I'm looking at you, Michael Caine and Peter O'Toole), but joining a cast list filled with talent who used to be in big films just adds an extra slap.
See, The Hollywood Reporter posts that Tara Reid is making a Last Call, and she'll be joined by names that include Christopher Lloyd, Tom Arnold, Dave Foley, and Clint Howard. Sure, that last guy's career is all about the questionable gigs, but what's said with the rest of the roster? I don't want to say that these guys are has-beens, »

Yes, it really was just 8 months ago that party girl Tara Reid checked into rehab, getting her alcoholism and anorexia treated and emerging, hopefully, clean and ready to take her career seriously again. Which has led her to take a role in an indie comedy that is titled, I do not jest, Last Call. Is that really the way we're treating our recovering alcoholics these days? The THR story doesn't even suggest that Reid is getting the chance to act alongside major stars-- the biggest names are Clint Howard and Tom Arnold-- and we don't even know what Reid's role would be, though you can assume it's something along the lines of "pretty girl." Sure, Reid has to start somewhere after becoming completely unreliable on sets, but taking a movie titled Last Call just seems like a cruel joke. »
