Stan gets out of prison and finds success as a writer of fast-paced novels and as a Hollywood screenwriter, where being an ex-con is no handicap, but gives him more clout with directors and producers. He eventually reunites with Charlie and Jaime. There are plenty of surprising turns of event as Charlie, Jamie, Stan and their colleagues cope with the vicissitudes of the writing life.
Of course questions loom about what shape this manuscript was in before Jonathan Lethem worked on it. Bonnie Howard has also started a Don Carpenter page on Facebook. Finally, here's a Don Carpenter original on Litkicks: the author's memoir of a poetry reading at the Longshoreman's Hall in San Francisco.

Thanks again to Dan Barth, who has been writing about hippie-era authors like Ed McClanahan and Richard Brautigan on Literary Kicks for nearly as long as this site has been around! Thanks for the article, Dan, and for inspiring me to re-read Carpenter's novels, and finish reading "Fridays. Look forward to more. If you ever collect your "literary letters" in a book, please let us all know. Excellent piece. When I lived to Mill Valley , Don and I became close friends, hanging out, talking shop, etc. He always inspired me. Thanks for the tribute. John Kaye: I've been delving into the life of Evan Connell and would love to hear from people who knew him through Don Carpenter and others.
Thanks for spreading the word. Skip to main content. He plots out a novel, Felony Fuzz : He knew if he was to sell it to Fawcett it had to be like the other Gold Medals, fast action, clear straight language, no bullshit Thank you, Dan. That was a thoughtful review. Kind regards, Leha.

Since we've got a new James Bond movie out pretty soon, let's go over that.
The Unproduced Table Read #40 – DESTINATION YESTERDAY w/ Dexter Williams
I won't repeat all since there's so many so here's a greatest hits. What were they thinking? Dalton got tired of the delays and rewritings and quit. Anthony Hopkins was originally offered that villain part originally Bond's mentor, not partner but declined, the same with Alan Rickman. I love Rickman, but that's for the best since would've just end up using Bruce Willis' leftovers. When Lazenby stupidly quit. Gavin's contract was bought out and he got fully paid. I remember that post-Brosnan, pre-Craig-hiring era when we got some crazy ass rumors. Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman were in the running, both willing to do just one-picture, very lucrative deals.
Liev Schreiber was linked at one point as a front runner, as was E. Clive Owen at least from my memory was considered the favorite by the Internet and me for the longest time, I still believed that until Craig was announced. Rumors claimed at the time Christian Bale was offered Bond but turned it down in favor of Batman.
His former publicist later wrote a tell-all book confirming that story, claiming Bale told the the producers: "Sorry but I've already played a serial killer. Four notable directors could've directed a Bond film. For the first film, Alfred Hitchcock was in talks but he passed after EON refused to offer him more money, give him creative control, and his demand that Jimmy Stewart play Bond. Believe it or not, Fleming was apparently in favor of this ridiculous casting. I can't remember exactly why this didn't happen, but I do distinctly remember Scott claiming in an interview that he had wanted Quentin Tarantino to script it.
Steven Soderbergh in an interview did say he too was in talks with EON at one point to direct, but they didn't like his planned approach. No seriously. Lawsuits by EON stalled this, and they won the rights to both books back. Damn you RRA! I was going to post much of that! My favourite part about Fleming being okay with Jimmy Stewart playing Bond is that it lead to the crazy rumour that Fleming was referring to Stewart Granger since there was no way that he could possibly be refering to James Stewart.
I recall that Fleming wanted Peter Finch to play Bond. Casino Royale has an interesting history. Laurence Harvey was considered for Bond in the s. And in the s at one point there was a script with Bond written out in favour of an Italian gambler. Speaking of Stone, let's not forget Evita with Michelle Pfeiffer. That was pretty far along before cancellation, right?
Michelle was already taking voice lessons and recording demos. I must say Trivia, I didn't know some of that. I'm good with Jeffrey Wright being fed to a shark. Originally Posted by Triviachamp. I got to take a look at the Hadrian script and I could see why it went streaight into development hell as Boorman's vision was a mess, a very intriguing one but still a mess.

I think at one point Antonio Banderas was set to play the Emperor and some boy from Queer as Folks was to be Antinous.
