FACTOID FRIDAY 2/10/23 - Monkey actors have to go through A LOT of training if they want to make it big in Hollywood! And it isnt always easy! Amazing Animal Productions is one of the biggest monkey actor training facilities, and these monkeys work hard to get a chance at stardom on the silver screen! “The trainers physically abuse the chimpanzees for various reasons, but often for no reason at all. If the chimpanzees try to run away from a trainer, they are beaten. If they bite someone, they are beaten. If they don’t pay attention, they are beaten. Sometimes they are beaten without any provocation or for things that are completely out of their control. … I was specifically instructed to hit or kick them at the first sign of any aggression or misbehavior.”
FACTOID FRIDAY 2/17/23 - During the shooting of Life of Pi (2012, 127 min) King, the tiger actor who played Richard Parker, sometimes had a tough time on set. He almost drowned during one of the shoots!
FACTOID FRIDAY 2/24/23 - Both the Flintstones (1994, 91 min) and The Flintstones Viva Rock Vegas (2000, 91 min) have the same running time, clocking in at 91 minutes!
