One of my favourite film baddies of all time is General Zod.
He appears in Superman II and tries to take over the world much to Superman’s chagrin.
During the film, Zod makes everyone he can find kneel before him in submission.
He gives them a – do as I say or you’re toast look – and then says:
“Kneel before Zod.”
Superman on the other hand has the respect of everyone and doesn’t need to make people kneel before him. He just helps them and automatically gains their respect.
So, here is the thing:
Are you kneeling before Zod or are you with Superman?
The acting game can be a murky affair at times. There are some aspiring actors who kneel before Zod type industry members and are then led up the garden path.
Others seek out those who have their best interest at heart and really want to work with them.
Which reminds me, I must get my red cape fixed.
I’m here to fight for truth, and justice, and the method acting way.
