They Deserve Better: Ten Actors Who Should Be Superstars!

Some of us here at Thn often get our panties in a pickle when we see some of the talentless goons gracing our small and silver screens. We don’t want to name and shame (perhaps that could be a follow-up feature), but for now we’re taking a look at some of our favourite unsung heroes and heroines – those who perhaps have been unlucky with high-profile projects, and a few supporting actors who may not have had the chance to shine as a major lead in a big-budget blockbuster or dramatic epic.

Now before we start, we want to state that all these actors make a steady living working in television and/or film still, and some have for many years. We are not saying they’re deadbeats living on the streets unable to find work – they’re a successful bunch in there own niche way. But these are

Hicks eyeing Fine Line 'Dollars'
Scott Hicks is in talks to direct Fine Line Features' Five Dollars More, sources have confirmed. The project would reunite Hicks with the same studio for which he directed and co-wrote Shine, the 1996 drama that earned him Academy Award nominations in the directing and screenplay categories. The project, by writing duo Neal H. Dobrofsky and Tippi Dobrofsky, is the tale of a son forced to reunite with his con-artist father for a cross-country odyssey. Dollars will be produced by Carol Baum (The Good Girl, My First Mister) and Jane Goldenring (Heart of a Stranger, My First Mister). Guy Stodel will oversee the project for Fine Line along with Meredith Finn. Fine Line picked up the project in the fall for low- against mid-six figures (HR 10/22). Hicks, repped by CAA, directed Hearts in Atlantis and Snow Falling on Cedars.

Fine Line works for 'Five Dollars'

Fine Line Features has rung up an option on the spec script Five Dollars a Day by writing duo Neal H. Dobrofsky and Tippi Dobrofsky. The project -- picked up for low- against mid-six figures, according to sources -- follows the tale of a son forced to reunite with his con-artist father during a cross-country odyssey. Dollars will be produced by Carol Baum (The Good Girl, My First Mister) and Jane Goldenring (Heart of a Stranger, Mister). Guy Stodel will oversee the project for Fine Line along with Meredith Finn. Said Fine Line topper Mark Ordesky of the pact: "We are delighted to be working with Neil and Tippi, who have fashioned a brilliantly charming script infused with warmth and humanism in the tradition of such classics as Paper Moon and Max Dugan Returns." The Dobrofskys' credits include the Judd Nelson-Gina Gershon starrer Flinch, the USA miniseries To Have and to Hold and the spec Kiss the Sucker, which is in turnaround from Warner Bros. Pictures. The deal was negotiated by Caroline Blackwood and Stodel for Fine Line. The writers were repped by Leah Antonio-Ketcham of Loeb & Loeb and Wendi Niad at her Niad Management. The producers were repped by attorney Mitch Smelkinson at Stone, Meyer & Genow.
