Typecast’s Mac Beauvais joins the Legion of Leia podcast to chat about her web series, monsters and more!
On this week’s Legion of Leia podcast, my co-host Anastasia Washington and myself welcome writer/actress Mac Beauvais! Mac is known for Hit Girl and The Gloaming, and she’s back working on a new project called Typecast! This web series has one of my favorite premises ever. In Typecast, we check out the lives of three actors who are dealing with some typecasting with a twist. A monsterous one. Mac is working on an IndieGoGo campaign, which you can check out here. Here’s the official info:
From writer/comedian, Ben Paddon (PortsCenter, Boomer’s Day Off), writer/actress, Mac Beauvais (Hit Girl, The Gloaming), and featuring director Justin Zagri (Severus Snape and the Marauders) comes a comedy of horrors about just how truly monstrous Hollywood can be.
Hollywood! Land of dreams, of opportunity and of…okay, we all know that’s BS.
This comedy follows a trio of actors who are getting regular paying work, but who feel trapped by the roles they keep getting cast in. Actors stuck in an endless parade of sci-fi shlock and horror films. And I guess maybe we should mention that they’re actually monsters.
Not actors in makeup, not computer-generated trickery, but real monsters. Like, for real real…this is Typecast.
My face hurt from laughing after this one! Give it a listen below and follow Mac on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook at @StrangeLikeThat. Definitely check out the IndieGoGo campaign! There are some pretty awesome prizes, including a fragrance from BLACK PHOENIX ALCHEMY LAB that smells like cereal! (Check out the IndieGoGo page to watch a preview of the series and you’ll totally get it!)
