Exclusive: The Biblical blockbuster gets a-planning
The new Mr. Fantastic speaks about what drew him to the project
Take a trip to the dark side…
The Film: Also released as Remember The Daze, plot of comedy-drama The Beautiful Ordinary takes place over a 24-hour period, in the last day of high school in 1999.
Like most American high-school movies, all the kids are beautiful, well-off and bored. We, however, were just plain bored.
The Role: Amber is Julia, your average high-school fitty. She isn't very likable, but then, she's part of a nice big ensemble cast, so you don't have to put up with her for long.
Amber Nectar: This was director Jess Manafort's debut film. She hasn't done anything since.

I don't want to sound like I'm having a go but, what's the point in doing the evolution of a second rate bit part actress who probably won't be around for long? It amazes me that you'll give all this time and space to someone who features in a load of (and I quote) balls and predominantly 2 star movies when you haven't mentioned once! the passing of Richard Todd who died last Friday. How about using this empty space for a celebration of his work?

Ok, while I get what you're saying, and from a movie point of view, it's fair enough, I feel it's more than a little insensitive to describe Zack's experience in Alpha Dog as a "fun kidnapping".
Taking into context it is based on a true story and that Zack (the real life Nicholas Markowitz) is pointlessly murdered at the end of his experience I think that super seeds any element of fun. I doubt the real life parents would see it in that way anyway. So I think 'poor Zack' is entirely relevant as I'm sure he'd have given up the booze, weed and threesomes to have lived past 15 years old. Wouldn't you?
