Love? Squalor?: Cowboys and Aliens
JF: "Look, straight up? We got James Bond for this film."
C&C: "Right, right, we know."
JF: "He's a Brit, so he's not the natural choice for a cowboy, but he's got one thing that will make everyone forget..."
C&C: "Well, I mean, he's a pretty good actor..."
JF: "Yeah, well, forget that, not the point. The point is: did you see that scene in Casino Royale? The one with the speedo?"
JF: "Well, picture that...but in chaps."
C&C: "What are you saying?"
JF: "I'm saying I want you to think of Daniel Craig as two people. Right? He's in two leading roles, ok? He's not Daniel Craig, he's Daniel Craig's ass and Daniel Craig's chin.
JF: "You're right, I know exactly what you mean, we need Daniel Craig's pectoral manboobs to play a supporting role. Let's write in some scenes without the shirt. Alright everyone? We're losing the shirt..."
JF: "Ass. Chin. Pecs. He's a skinny little Ken doll. A skinny little tight end. I want everyone to want to grab that thing."
JF: "If you're not focusing on any of those three things...give us Harrison Ford's scowl."
JF: "That's it. Remember: Ass. Chin. Moobs. Scowl. So money. Beautiful. Good talk."
