As we mentioned in indieWIRE today…Randy Quaid is suing Focus Features for $10 million because he claims they misled him about their intentions for “Brokeback Mountain” — he says he is owed more than what he was paid for his role in the film.
The whole thing feels rather opportunistic, I mean sure he has that great “stemming the rose” line, but how many scenes is he in? 3 or 4? And the most outrageous part is that he is claiming to be “an instantly recognizable household name and much-admired actor on the world’s stage”. Sorry, but…since when? Which world is he talking about?
Did anyone go see “Brokeback” to see Randy Quaid?!
