Acting Range

Darling! I have a bit of news for you. I was at a party for the premiere of one of my other, lesser client's films and I overheard super-director George Spieler say he's making a new film that he thinks will be, in his words, "an explosive, box-office phenomenon."
Speech really?

Would I make something like that up, darling? Now, I know that everything's explosive to that man; I'm pretty sure he described the caviar at the party as "dangerously combustible," but that's beside the point. He knows film! I don't know anything more than the nugget that I heard, but I suggest you get yourself out there and show everyone that you've got range.
Speech how?

I'm talking comedy, drama, maybe horror to mix it up... 2 of each would be marvelous. If you can 5-star some projects in different genres, it'll show that you can do it all!
Speech when do I start?

Immediately, of course! I'll even give you stars for completing each set: I'll give you one star for the horror projects, two stars for the comedies, then three more when you complete the dramas!
Speech great!

Don't forget to come see me when you've finished the first set: get a 5-star rating on 2 horror movies.
Speech I won't!


After filming 2 horror movies

Excellent work, darling! You've shown that you can impress audiences and critics with your terrified screams. Let's see it you can make them laugh! You'll get two stars for doing so! Come see me after.
Speech ok!

A Pet Project

Hello, darling! Good thing you dropped by! I hope you like animals because I've been approached with a business proposition by the people over at Pet Palooza. They want you to do some advertisement work...

1. Speech I don't do ads
2. Speech ok
1. ?
2. All you have to do is go down to Pet Palooza and be seen in the store. Do that and they'll pay you $500, Darling. They want to be seen as the pet store to the stars or something like that. It's basically free money!
a. Speech I'll do it
b. Speech any reason not to? +Cash +XP
a. ?
b. Well... do you have any allergies? That and, back in the Eighties, Pet Palooza was accused of selling rather "exotic" pets. You know: tigers, pandas, the odd now-extinct animal. PITA got its cruelty-free tail in a twist, but that scandal's older than most pop stars are these days!
b1. Speech I'll do it
b2. Speech that's terrible!
b3. Speech PITA?
b1. ?
b2. Darling, it was the Eighties! Selling exotic animals was one of the less-offensive things you could do. So, should I tell them you'll do it?
b2a. Speech yes
b2b. Speech no
b2a. Fantastic! Head down to Pet Palooza when you're ready, darling.
Speech ok
b2b. ?
b3. People for the Eth - no - no... Irreproachable Treatment of Animals or something. So, should I tell Pet Palooza that you'll do it?
b3a. Speech I'll do it
b3b. Speech I won't do it
b3b. ?
Awards Night

Charlene is calling...

(Your Name), darling! How are you? Doesn't matter! I have some news...
You're a STAR Award nominee! You're nominated for Best Supporting Actor/Actress for The Life Sapling.
Speech ok

Now, the ceremony begins in 24 hours; I'll call you then!
Speech ok

Bump to A-List
Darling! You have to try some of this Uramaki!
1. Speech try it
2. Speech don't try it
1. ?
2. You're no fun! But it's a good thing you happened to drop by! It'll take some convincing, but I think I have a friend-of-a-friend at Starnews who can put out a story about you that will bump you up to the A-List! How does that sound?
a. Speech bump to A-list! Staricon35
b. Speech no thanks
a. ?
b. All right, darling. I'll let you know if something else comes up!
Speech ok
Bump to B-List

Darling! You have to try some of this Makizushi!

1. Speech try it
2. Speech don't try it
1. Delicious, isn't it? And it's a good thing you happened to drop by! It'll take some convincing, but I think I have a friend-of-a-friend at Starnews who can put out a story about you that will bump you up to the B-List! How does that sound?
a. Speech bump to B-list! Staricon30
b. Speech no thanks
a. ?
b. All right, darling. I'll let you know if something else comes up!
Speech ok

Coat of the Leopard

Beautiful. I just love animal prints! I saw you wearing it before, and I think others did too... Starnews has people everywhere, and they're willing to report anything - even about how you dress.
Speech ok

Date a Friend/Date Someone Famous/Keep Dating

There you are! Great job getting seen out on the town while (Rival) is still barking. It'll show that you weren't trying to steal (Friendly Actor/Actress), and (Rival) will just look jealous.
Speech ok

It's ok if you want to keep dating that nobody - building relationships is always valuable... ...but it won't help you get famous as much as beeing seen with other famous people. Folks love celeb couples.

2. Speech find someone else


1. Good idea - let's show everyone that you're serious and that this isn't for show. Keep dating until the media picks up that you're at least casually seeing each other. The better a relationship the more rewarding spending time with them is.


2. Lots of fish in the sea, though most as cold as the ones I order here. Now, you can try your luck meeting people at the bars around here or you can take the easy way out and date a friend - you know, a real-life one with a heartbeat, darling! If you sign-in to Facebook/Game Center in your contact list, your friends will appear in your friends list if they're already playing. If they're not, you should invite them! I'll even give you stars if you date a friend, or someone else?


a. Excellent, darling! Enjoy yourself!
Speech ok
b. Excellent, darling! See if you can find someone on the C-list at least. They may not give you the time of day at first, but if you use your charm or get some fame of your own, it gets easier.
Speech ok
Eye of the Cougar

Excellent, darling! Now you just need to start dressing the part - strut a little! I know just the thing: there's a leopard print top in the clothing store - buy one, try it on, then come show me.
Speech ok

Face-to-face Time

Darling! Congratulations on being more "liked" than most humanitarians and scientists put together!
Now, as I'm sure - well, I hope! - your agent has managed to tell you, George Focus has his script for Star Battle: Episode VII ready, George Spieler is set to direct, and the only missing piece is the cast.
As everyone in town knows, it's going to be a popularity contest to see who gets the lead roles.
Speech competition?

I'm glad you asked! Currently, the most popular person on Facetome is a rapper who goes by the name "Lil' Slance."
He's out of the picture because he acts about as well as he raps, which is to say terribly - that and he's in rehab. The silver medalist, however, is very much in the picture.

1. Speech who?
2. Speech his music's bad?
1. None other than Rival! And it's not because she's actually popular; I have it on good authority that she paid her way to the top - big surprise!

Speech how do I beat him/her?

2. Oh, yes! Several, um younger suitors of mine enjoy his "music" and insist on subjecting me to it. That's another story, though.
Your competition for the lead is none other that Rival! And it's not because he/she's actually popular; I have it on good authority that he/she paid her way to the top - big surprise!

Speech how do I beat him/her?

Well, there's one demographic you're missing out on. It can't be bought and votes more than any other demographic: the elderly, darling!
The grandparents of Facetome will put you over the edge regardless of Rival's 'bot votes, which is why I have that agent of yours get Cecil D. Seville to meet with you.
He's making a modern silent film that will surely be a hit with... the preferred demographic.
You star in his next film - which will mostly run during matinee times - and you're sure to get a meeting with George Focus.
Speech ok

Mr. Seville, king of films loved by seniors, will be out on the coast. Good luck!
Speech ok

Good news!

No time for pleasantries today, darling. There's a private party at Coco tonight for (Rival)'s show. The swimming... whatever-it-is-show. Regardless, I think you should go.

1. Speech ok
2. Speech what!?
1. Perfect! I didn't even have to explain why - that's what I like about you. Now, first things first: you need to spruce yourself up. Get yourself a nice, tank top - the kind with a v-neck!
1a. Speech ok
1b. Speech Arnie says "hi" XP+5
2. Just stir the pot a bit. Nothing grabs headlines like a rivalry - well nothing you want to be involved in. Trust me, Darling. I know what I'm doing.
2a. Speech if you say so

2b. Speech no thanks

2a. And I do. Now, first things first: you need to spruce yourself up. Get yourself a nice, tank top - the kind with a v-neck!

i. Speech ok

ii. Speech Arnie says "hi" XP+5
1b & ii. Oh, who cares!
Speech...

Laugh Factory

After filming 2 comedy movies

Your sense of comedic timing is impeccable! You've made them laugh - in some cases wet themselves... don't ask how I found that out! - now let's see if you can make them cry in some dramatic films. You'll get three stars for the dramas, darling! Come see me after, of course.
Speech ok!

Meet a Publicist

Do I know you, darling? You look a bit familiar.

1. Speech mention Arnie +2XP
2. Speech mention (Rival)


1. Arnie? That sorry sack of... sushi. Why Arnie? Did you just step off the bus? I'm sorry... never mind. Arnie and I go way back. We both seen a lot of good times and bad times, though most of the bad ones were his.
1a. Speech ask for help
2b. Speech use your charm Staricon1 +20XP


1a. My help? Unlike Arnie, I'm a professional, sweetie. It doesn't seem like you're at the stage where you need a publicist.
1i. Speech order tuna sushi Cash5 +5XP
2i. Speech order maguro Cash5 +10XP
3i. Speech beg her


1i. Good choice, I'm a fan of the tuna. Maybe there's hope for you yet, darling. Swing by again once you've done a few projects and we'll talk.
Speech ok
2i. I'm impressed. Maybe there's hope for you yet, sweetie. Swing by again once you've done a few projects and we'll talk. I'll pay for sushi.
Speech ok
3i. You really are one of Arnie's aren't you. Stop already, I'll help, I'll help. Come by once you've done a few projects and we'll see what we can do.
Speech ok


2. Ah yes, that's why I recognize you – Starnews! Got in a little public squabble, did we?

As much as I dislike (Rival), you'd do well to avoid airing your dirty laundry in public like that.
Speech ask for help

My help? I'm a professional, sweetie. It doesn't seem like you're at the stage where you need a publicist.
1a. Speech mention Arnie
2b. Speech use your charm Staricon1


1a. Arnie? That sorry sack of... nevermind. If you're working with Arnie, you may need more help than I can offer.

Speech ok


3i. You really are one of Arnie's aren't you. Stop already, I'll help, I'll help. Come by once you've done a few projects and we'll see what we can do.
Speech ok


2b. Hahaha, you sure know how to turn it on, dear. That's a real asset in this biz.

You'll be an interesting pet project. Come back once you've done a few projects and we'll talk.

Speech ok

Party Crashed

Oh, you young kids! I think that whole Coco incident worked out well for us - you, I mean. On the next bit of business... one name - Jerry Histin. He loved The Reapening - who wouldn't - and he wants to have a chat with you about it. He's a darling of the blogs... darling. But, of course, you already knew that. It's a great opportunity to plug the movie!

1. Speech take the interview
2. Speech refuse
1. He'll be at The Leaky Cantina . Be careful of how you handle yourself...
Speech ok
2. Why not? Yeah, he can be salacious, but you can handle it... I hope.
a. Speech I'll do it
b. Speech refuse
a. He'll be at The Leaky Cantina. Be careful of how you handle yourself...
Speech ok
b. I'll let him know, but he won't be happy. This might come back to bite you in the California roll, you know. This town can hold a grudge...
Speech ok
Party Starter

(Your Name), Darling! Just the person I wanted to see...
Speech ok

I wanted to talk to you about throwing a party - wait! You're still living in that run-down box of an apartment down on Brockwillow, aren't you? Never mind! If you're going to throw a party, you'll need a bigger - and nicer - place. We can't have people seeing you living in that hole. It probably has mice! Come see me once you've upgraded your home to... well, a home, dear.

1. Speech ok
2. Speech why parties?
1. ?
2. Besides being a way to annoy your neighbors, parties are a great way to get your friends to help you earn rewards and even new fans... Of course, the party would have to be as good as one of mine for that to happen!
Speech ok

After buying a bigger place

Darling! Good to see you! You look so young and bankable! Just in time too because I wanted to talk to you about something.
Speech ok

Now, you might not know this, but I have quite the reputation for the parties I've thrown over the years. They've become famous - infamous to some, I'm sure - and everyone from newcomers to high-profile actors and industry vets shows up. Throwing a party like the ones I used to will make you the talk of the town! So, what do you say, darling? Want to throw a party?

1. Speech yes!
2. Speech no, thanks
1. ?
2. Are you sure?
a. Speech I'll do it
b. Speech I'm sure
a. ?
PITA ad

Darling, some flake from that People for the... whatever-treatment of Animals called saying you agreed to do some magazine ad for them. Is this true? Said her name was Sharon Lapin...

1. Speech yes
2. Speech no
1. Oh! Far be it from me to pry into why you do what you do - though it is my job. If you want to do it then I'll make arrangements.
a. Speech I want to
b. Speech I don't want to
a. Okay, dear. Go see Miguel; the man knows more photographers than I do plastic surgeons! I'll let him know you're on your way.
Speech thanks
b. ?
2. ?
Publicity Stunt

There's my new pet project; I've been waiting for you. Arnie told me about your exploits of late. It's a good start, but success in your projects is only half the game. We need to manage your image.
Speech ok

Let's start with that situation with (Rival). The media is still holding on to that story. It was good for a bit, but now we need to control the message; make you look like the victim.

1. Speech I am
2. Speech I'm not
1. That's a good start!
2. It doesn't matter.

This was all about some sort of love triangle, right? You need to be seen out there dating someone else. Let's find you someone who's not in the industry, so Rival's the one who looks like the opportunist.

a. Speech ok
b. Speech no
c. Speech why?
a. Go find someone who's not an actor, not in the biz. Flirt with them, get their number. Once you've got that, go to a bar or club and invite them. Stay a while and spend some time (and money). It's a great way to improve your relationships and get experience anyway.
Speech ok


b. I'm not asking - I'm telling, sweetie. You need to know how the game works before you can break the rules. Go find someone who's not an actor, not in the biz. Flirt with them, get their number. Once you've got that, go to a bar or club and invite them. Stay a while and spend some time (and money).


c. Because it's a great way to improve your relationships and get experience. Go find someone who's not an actor, not in the biz. Flirt with them, get their number. Once you've got that, go to a bar or club and invite them. Stay a while and spend some time (and money).
Speak to Lou Pinelli

Darling! I read the script you sent me...
Speech and...

It's spectacular! It's better than "A Taste of Love" - and not just because I dumped the hack of a writer that wrote that. And you say some mover wrote this? It's the grittiest script I've read since "American History Y," the sequel that never was. It's good! It's great! Although...
Speech what?

It might be hard to find money to back it due to some of the more "hardcore," shall I say, subject matter. Unless, of course, someone who's rich and famous... and standing in front of me wants it made...

1. Speech I do
2. Speech I don't
1. It sounds like you're ready to have some obsessive fan add "producer" to your Internet Film Database profile, dear. That way we can skip the shady Stuckleys of the world! I can find some other backers, but you're going to have to put up or shut up as the saying goes. Just remember that you might not get a return on this investment. Who knows with indie projects?
a. Speech let's do it Cash7000
b. Speech pass on it
c. Speech come back later
a. You carry that much cash around? Kids these days... We're going to need someone to direct your masterpiece; who do you think we should get?
a1. Speech get Spieler
a2. Speech get Hacker
a1. Oh, George! You know he and I used to "Go Boom" once in a while together. I'll get in touch with his people. Second, we need someone to co-star; I assume you want me to take care of that.
a1a. Speech take care of it Energy15
a1b. Speech let me do it
a1a. Perfect! Well, darling, I will make all of the arrangements. I really should have been an agent... Filming starts in 24 hours!
Speech ok
a1b. ?
a2. ?
b. ?
2. ?
Speak to Tony

(Your Name), darling! That friend of yours, Anthony - or "Tony" - keeps calling me, which is odd because I've only met him once and I've never given him my number - my home number! Anyway, he said he couldn't get a hold of you, but he wants to see you right away. Not an emergency, but very important. He'll be in your old neighborhood - Brockwillow, dear.
Speech ok

Talk to Charlene

Darling! Let me guess... you're here about that reality show - with the celebrity friend... people... whatever?
Speech how did you know?

There still isn't much I don't know! Now, your friend can get on the show if you agree to make an appearance for the first episode - or if you want, you could even be the host.
Neither are particularly fitting for a star like you, but it's the only way that Anthony - or "Tony" - can get on the show.
Frankly, I think he's a little too "sheltered" to be on television, but... that's another story.
Speech ok...

So, dear, if you make a quick appearance, you'll get a nice little $2,000 payday; if you host for the first season, they're willing to pay you the triple that and pay you $6,000, although it will hurt your star power - junk television does that.
What do you want to do? Make an appearance, host, or ignore something clearly beneath you?

1. Speech appearance
2. Speech host
3. Speech neither
1. If you want, dear. I'm sure "Tony" will be very excited. I'll handle your agent, darling. Filming starts in 24 hours.
Speech ok
2. ?
3. ?
The Crying Game
Your sense of comedic timing is impeccable! You've made them laugh - in some cases wet themselves... don't ask how I found that out! - now let's see if you can make them cry in some dramatic films.

You'll get three stars for the dramas, darling! Come see me after, of course.
Speech ok!

The Gift of Gab
Congratulations once again, darling! The award is a good opportunity to practice dealing with the media on the red carpet.

If you come off as a level-headed, girl next door, they'll love you; if you come off as some sort of face-legs-and-body without a brain, they'll treat you like reality-TV trash - and you don't want to end up like that!
So, be humble, remember who you're wearing and - for God's sake! - remember what project you're there for... which studio it was made by, maybe a famous line or two...
Speech ok

Good! Now, the STAR Awards are being held at the Dean D. Powell Theater-atorium, not too far from here - over on Mt. Pleasant. They call the theater "award central" because almost every major award ceremony is held there.
And award ceremonies happen all the time in this town, darling; so, 24 hours after the nominees are announced, the ceremony for that award will begin.
Of course, I'll call you to let you know when to head down there!
Speech ok

Excellent! Now, go on over to Miguel, darling. I'm sure he'll have something "fab-tastic" - or whatever it is he always says - for you to wear. You'll look great!
Speech ok

Who is this guy?

Darling! I have some excellent news! And it doesn't involve you dating anyone! Person Magazine, THE Person Magazine, has put you on their Most Beautiful People list!

1. Speech number one?
2. Speech that's great!
1. Well... you're at the bottom, but who cares?
2. I know! You're at the bottom, but who cares?

I've never seen someone who's so new to the industry make it on this list so quickly! I'm surprised! And I haven't been surprised since President Nixon asked me to sing at his birthday.

a. Speech thanks!
b. Speech mention Miguel
b. Miguel? From Narcis? He's the owner-slash-designer - he's also one of the best stylists in town, but he's very expensive. He's young, hot, very exclusive and we once had a thing.
I. Speech eww
II. Speech that's nice
I. What? You don't think a woman in her late...r years can land someone younger? I was quite the dish when I was on the DuMont network and I still am!
Speech ok
II. Don't patronize me! I'm old; not senile. Anyway, Narcis is the where the Hollywood elite get their duds - and you will too!

I just know it - but don't quote me on it.

Speech ok
