The idea that writer/director Tom DiCillo modeled the buffoonish Chad Palomino character on Brad Pitt after working with Pitt on Johnny Suede (1991) is a myth. Pitt himself was slated to appear as the Palomino character, until a scheduling conflict with Legends of the Fall (1994) forced him to drop out and be replaced by James Le Gros. Apparently, LeGros *was* mocking a self-absorbed Hollywood star, but it wasn't Pitt. DiCillo said that while he can't name any names, LeGros confided that he had lifted all of the Palomino character's mannerisms from a star with whom he had just finished working. See more »

For all of us who have worked on a film production before, watching Living in Oblivion is an honor and an enjoyment. For once you have experienced what it is like to work in that kind of atmosphere with that group of people, you accept it even more. A story about a director making a movie, Living in Oblivion holds many true tidbits and crazy moments that occur regularly on a film shoot. The relationship between the director and the D of P, the treatment of the actors between the other actors and the crew, and most importantly, how a director holds himself with one member of the production with another. Altogether, you got an amazing film that tells it like it is. A pure, a true enjoyment.
