Sean Penn nowadays, only for a supporting role. Self destructive and really badly aged. The times he was great have passed. Unless there was a very special story that would take full advantage of his persona, letting him now to carry a PTA movie upon his shoulders, is pure madness. And he was never considered to play the lead role in any of his films, anywise.
I never considered him far gone. He seems a bit prickly in interviews but I'm sure can still put in a great performance. He kinda seems like he's just been making movies for the pay cheque that last while though, not that his performances were bad necessarily, just that he didn't give a shit about movie. He would be good as a burnt out surfer or something.

And as stated elsewhere PTA only ever offered him supporting roles, I figured that's why he always turned them down.

So reports coming in now that Leo has turned down PTA to work with GDL, so this seems pretty legit.

Turned down might be the wrong way to phrase it.  "Committed to something else first" might be more accurate.

I could see Gosling. Same persona as Leo (assuming this is the one he turned down). Makes more sense than JGL tbh. Not buying Franco

If it’s “unexpected”, Jim Carrey/Will Ferrell. Also fits the funny but drama description

Man, see how this place lights up with even the slightest murmurings of PTA news?  :yabbse-smiley:


It's lit up so brightly we've need two separate threads to hold it all, apparently.

I'd like to see Carrey have a legit comeback and would be down with him as a male lead in a PTA. Think he'd pair nicely with TH as the main/female lead.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

That’d be cool. Wasn’t he considered for Rudy Blatnoyd in IV? Or was that fan speculation....

I think the speculation was bigfoot because he walked out on a chatshow wearing prop bigfeet and PTA had mentioned liking him and working with him. PTA had also mentioned really liking Michael Shannon and Charlize Theron in the same interview.

Going back to the original topic for a bit, last year I was reading a lot about art instructor lineages in America. Surprisingly interesting stuff. And all the while I was reading and researching, I couldn't help but see it through PTA's lens. There were war veterans, Hollywood hopefuls, one or two nasty dudes etc. People who have influenced the entire entertainment industry and contributed to the war-time propaganda effort with their work/methods. Sounds weird but I think there's great potential for a movie covering 20th century American art instruction or the lives of the people behind it.

It sounds like a PTA bingo. What were their methods exactly?

There were different schools. I'm going to make some generalisations here, for example, Frank Reilly utilised an abstraction diagram method, George Bridgman (a teacher of Reilly who studied at Ecole des Beaux-Arts), focused on anatomy derived from boxes and there was this overall shift from the old atelier sight-size to a more structural form of design (which has been used prior to 20th century). Many modern concept artists and instructors seem to come from ArtCenter in California- hundreds of them taught by a dude named Harry Carmean. Most of the art instruction you see on youtube or wherever these days seem to derive from these guys- who built upon hundreds of years of teaching. So I guess they're simply relatively recent names in a long history of art pedagogy.

To reinforce how appropriate some art related movie would be, I'll share this. From what I've read, he was a real life PTA character.
