Steven Soderbergh will direct a play about Casey called “Tot Mom” -WTF??
The play, will be on stage in Australia from December 18 to January 31. Staging down under evidently prevents having to compensate anyone for source material. The play will use excerpts from transcripts of Nancy Grace’s show, court documents and police reports.
Essie Davis will play Nancy Grace and I think Genevieve Hegney will play Casey, both are Aussie actresses.
This is just bizarre. I wonder what prompted him to do this? It’s exceedingly strange but I do love Soderbergh and have always wanted to go to Australia. This case just gets weirder and weirder.
Questions? Comments? Thoughts? Concerns?
On its Web site, the company notes that the case has baffled investigators and poses the questions “Why was Caylee’s disappearance not reported to police for over a month? When was the child last seen? What was the strange smell in the boot(hee hee boot) of Casey Anthony’s car? Who and where was the alleged babysitter?”
I think Soderbergh is so talented and I just find it puzzling that he’s obsessed enough w/this case that he’s taken time out of his busy schedule to WRITE a play about CASEY. Maybe he really is trying to end his career as this article suggests. In that article he said:
“In terms of my career, I can see the end of it,” he says. “I’ve had that sensation for a few years now. And so I’ve got a list of stuff that I want to do – that I hope I can do – and once that’s all finished I may just disappear.”
Aren’t you just kind of waiting to Ashton Kutcher or Jamie Kennedy to come out? I feel PUNKED. And my jaw is sore once again.
They are in NYC on the set and they are sitting about as far away from each other as is possible while still being on the same set. I think body language experts would have a field day w/it and I think there is a growing chasm between them- I can’t imagine what its like in that house. I still have tremendous sympathy for them but I just don’t think they are doing themselves any favors w/the way they are conducting themselves. I think George may try to broach the subject, as he should, about the POSSIBILITY that Caylee is no longer w/us and I imagine Cindy bites his head off. I think they should be in counseling and someone should advise them to acknowledge that that MAY be the outcome- their stance right now is making them seem delusional and interfering w/people feeling the sympathy for them that they deserve. I wonder what other shows they will be doing while in the big apple? Geraldo probably -for sure- since he’s buddies w/Casey’s BFF Jose. I wonder if they’re still mad at Greta? Yuck, I’ll probably have to watch some FOX. I hate dislike FIXed News.
Meredith interviews them- asks how they are feeling- George says crazy roller coaster (hmm, I wonder what the highs have been? I love roller coasters). I can’t imagine being in their shoes. She then asks about the Grand Jury- he can’t comment- duh. Cindy responds to the neglect charges being dropped -due to the State saying evidence has revealed that Caylee is deceased- by saying that she believes that its just a delay tactic to keep evidence from them. Yeah, that’s right its all a big conspiracy
and LE faked all this evidence just to frame your daughter. What does she think the evidence will show her? Meredith asks about the evidence and what if they present evidence to you showing that Caylee is deceased and Cindy says that’s a big IF. They mention that its all circumstantial and they still believe she’s alive and that every bit of evidence can have experts argue against it in court. She thinks they’ll find Caylee before that but they’ll go to court if they have to. Um, you do have to and that thing you always say about its not against the law to lie…yeah that’s not true so much when you’re in court (or talking to authorities for that matter– see the last 4 charges against your daughter). She says they’ve established a new tip line and have investigators working diligently trying to find Caylee- they get tips all the time.
Interesting that they don’t give out the tip # – hey you’re on national TV – why not give out the number to call or hey why not show a sketch of the last person seen w/Caylee?? -she looks like this, here’s what her car looks like, here’s where she may be, what she may be doing, what she likes to eat, her hobbies. Why not make a plea to that person to bring Caylee home? Why not speak directly to Caylee?- honey we love you and we’re looking for you. Don’t most loved ones do that? I don’t understand why people don’t ask them that stuff in interviews-grrrr- its so frustrating!! I’m going to have to build another list of 90 questions that I want to SCREAM at reporters!! 😦 I’ve heard that they took a lie detector test fairly recently and I like for them to confirm that. I also heard that Lee is still refusing. I’s like to know why?
They talk about these party pictures-Meredith says- help us understand they pics. Yes pls explain the apparent disparity between distraught mother/desperately searching/grief and party girl/spiteful b!tch/thief!! Curious minds want to know. George says the best way to describe Casey is she’s a good mother and a good daughter. Er, yep, that would be the best way– but what we are interested in is the most truthful way. Give that a shot. Why didn’t she have a job? Why did she lie? Why was there even the need for a (phantom) nanny? Cindy says alot of those pics were taken before 6/16. Why don’t they get called out on this? However true that may be- as we’ve seen alot of pictures- SOME of them WERE taken after Caylee went “missing” so how do you explain that? How bout the crime spree ripping off a good friend at Target?
I do think its interesting that at least she’s acknowledging that date still. I think that was the date Caylee died, but at least she knows that was the date she went “missing.” Why not talk about the circumstances of that day? Maybe someone watching saw something- wouldn’t that be the most helpful thing to be talking about when you have the nation’s attention? Hmm- it makes me think of the new Clint Eastwood movie- The Changeling– where they try to give the wrong kid back after a kidnapping. Would that work here? Maybe Cindy just wants her 3 yr old grand daughter back- any 3 yr old will do?!? Ugh, I know she loved Caylee and I feel bad even typing that but its just so unbelievably frustrating. They are getting some really bad PR advice or they are completely un-coachable in my opinion. They should be asking for help and telling us what happened- we ALL want Caylee to be found alive. Give us a reason to believe. Why don’t you share some of what your having? I actually quite like kool-aid. (The new crystal lite style sugar free cherry flavor is FABULOLUS! BTW)
I think its interesting that they didn’t use the Jose line about –the world will understand everything once Casey gets to tell her story in court. Cindy says poor Casey has been tried in the public since day one. Poor Casey? NO! Poor Caylee!! Cindy actually gives a shout out to Tim Miller -which is weird since I thought she’d (threw him under the bus recently and) said that he stole from them and she would never speak to him again.
Cindy says she point blank asked authorities, even weeks ago, if its 100% and they said no, NO evidence is 100%. That’s frustrating to me. I know 100% certainty is rare- but if they have it- WHY don’t they say YES so that these poor grandparents can begin to have some closure? Why don’t they do this??? They don’t have to show her the evidence yet but why not say that yes, we have enough evidence to conclusively prove that the child is no longer w/us? I guess there’s some legal issues involved and I don’t want to jeopardize the case but DAMN- that’s frustrating. I want to KNOW what they KNOW. And I sure as sh!t hope they can PROVE what they know.
They say they haven’t gone to see Casey in jail bc Casey has asked that the focus not be on her but on her daughter Caylee and they know the media frenzy that would ensue w/visits etc. How thoughtful of Casey. Cindy says who’s to say how you react when someone takes someone you love? Um, normal people are to say how you react when someone takes someone you love…normal people call 911, tell the truth and tell WHO look their loved one! Heck, there’d probably even be a sketch (rant)! To do otherwise needs explanation and there may be one, I doubt it but I would sure love to hear it!!
George gives a shout out to the Kid Finders Network and says they’ve been helped tremendously by them. Hmmm, then why are you starting basically a duplicate and competing foundation seeking donations in your daughter’s name? There are other ways to honor the memory of Caylee. How about a scholarship fund for young single mothers? How about funds to go for mental health counseling for families in need- families who’ve lost a loved one or families dealing w/a loved one who’s a sociopath?
Ugh, I just read here that Cindy was paid $5000 for her last Today show interview and now they’ve flown both of them up there- I wonder how much money this whole little publicity tour will net them?? I wonder if its specified that it can’t go to Casey’s defense? As I wrote in the 20/20 post –> over there–> they get around it by not paying for the intv but licensing photos etc. Yuck. I wish there was a way to get a petition going that would say PLEASE don’t put those people on the air unless they tell us the circumstances surrounding Caylee’s disappearance. Starve them of the limelight as we starve for information!! WE are TEAM Caylee! We want her to be found and we want CAYLEE to have JUSTICE! I just listened to that interview again and grrr Cindy said again that from day 1 they have been building a case against Casey and they HAVE NOT BEEN LOOKING FOR CAYLEE!! That makes me so angry- they’ve BEEN looking for Caylee but the ONE person who could help has NOT BEEN COOPERATING. Cindy says there is nothing in the world that could ever make her believe Casey harmed Caylee. I believe that’s true- she is snowed UNDER and will never see the truth unless Case admits it. And the chances of that are slim to none. I think she wants to dedicate her life to this “cause” thus the foundation and she will ALWAYS be trying to figure out a way to find Casey innocent.
She’s already thrown Jesse and Amy under the bus. Jesse who loved Casey and Caylee and Amy who led Cindy to Casey when she was distraught over finding her daughter -her daughter who’s been (missing) out of the house for the past month- for the first time ever keeping Caylee away for that long. Amy did that, even though since day 1 Casey had pumped her full of despicable lies about the Anthony family- Amy thought they WERE a crazy family and hesitated when Cindy called, but then Amy could just hear how upset she was. Cindy, having just recovered her “missing” daughter’s car REEKING of decomposition begged Amy to take her to Casey. Amy recognized a distraught parent and agreed to “bust” Casey at her secret hideaway w/the boyfriend Cindy had no clue about!! THAT is the ONLY reason we even know that Caylee is missing! God bless Amy (poor thing has had ALL of her personal text messages revealed and her bank account and her privacy have been ravaged by Casey)- THANK YOU AMY– I’m sorry you ever met Casey. I think Cindy was just using the stolen car and bank account- call the cops threat to force Casey to take her to Caylee. We know how stubborn Casey is…I can still picture her striding confidently down the hall at Universal w/cops in tow…which one is my office? Oh, that’s right, I don’t have an office here. I haven’t worked here in over 2 years. I was just FF’in w/ya! But I do want to help you find my daughter…in a backward sorta way. GRRR!! I’m sorry any of us have ever heard of her. I’m so mad and so sad! 😦
Double Ugh, after the interview, I left it running while ranting here and heard the clip about Hulk Hogan’s son getting released and like a train wreck…I had to go watch. Brook runs up hugging him dramatically wearing a tight white wife beater and tight jeans- no reason a publicity ho shouldn’t look good while dashing into the scene dramatically as her little brother gets released from prison. Ugh, I can’t even talk about these people anymore. WHY are they on TV??? They hurt my eyes. Pls go away. And pls, let’s all say a prayer that Nick does not get his own show too. We’ve had enough of these people. WHO is the idiot that put them on TV in the first place?? They’ve got some serious explainin’ to do.
