Pushing MAOW Online - JOIN THE FB PAGE!  
This was brought up awhile ago but I didn't post it at first cause I wasn't sure if it was legit.

A Facebook fan page has been started for Me and Orson Welles by a company representing CinemaNX. So if you are on FB support Zac and his castmates by becoming a fan!


They have also set up a youtube channel here.

There is a twitter too, but I'm still not sure if that is legit because it is not linked from the FB or YT page. And it replied to a fake Zac twitter, so idk about that.

Okay I lied, if I spent anytime on FB I probably would have noticed it faster, lol, but yes, the twitter @MeandOrson is linked from the FB page, thus seems legit too. So follow that too!

Also, FYI... I was asked to change the title on the YT Me and Orson Welles trailer we got off the 17 Again dvd to reflect that it is just a teaser trailer, specially made for Zac fans. I was also told that the actual trailer will be released soon and will feature more of the other cast, which is quite exciting! :)

ETA: There is a bebo page too :D http://www.bebo.com/Profile/meandorsonwelles

i have to say, to be fair, donal logue is not really a nobody. he has a long history and is a good character actor. he's a very recognizable face, even if his name is unfamiliar.

obviously i worry about zac having to carry the movie too, but i sort of never expected big names in those roles. i was hoping for excellent character actors. i think donal logue will be fine. augustus prew, i don't know anything about, but if he's good, that's what matters. (actually i just realized he's got a small role in about a boy, so i think i'll re-watch that today to see what i think).

i'm still most interested to see who they cast for the firefighter. that role, to me, has more potential to attract a big name cameo depending on how they've written the script.

Donal Logue might be a good character actor but he's really no name at all, not even a little bit (to the general public... people interest in films might very well know him).

Given the characters I didn't expect much from the casting of Joe but I was really hoping that they would get a much more recognizable name for Tink.

The firefighter is now the "last hope" that they get another name but that's still not enough (if it happens in the first place).

Imo, Universal/Platt are saving in the wrong place. The budget for CStC has to be bigger than I initially thought with all the on-water shooting etc, why skimping at one or two salaries? It's not like we're talking A-list salaries here, I just wanted someone recognizable who can also help promote when the film gets released.

To me, it was clear from the time we had those twitters about the one guy going back for a call back that Joe would be a relatively unknown actor. That Augustus Prew has as many credits as he does, is probably actually good compared to what it could have been.

I really do think Donal Logue is much more recognizable than he seems by name... at least here in the US. He's been on several TV shows and in a lot of movies. He's probably a little lower than I would have hoped for but I think he's okay.

Donal Logue was really good in Just Like Heaven & his show Grounded for Life was a semi hit but I get what you mean. Thats a lot of pressure riding on Zac's name.
