There's been a lot of Hollywood talk on the Bobby Bones Show lately.
Lunchbox was really disappointed that he was not the show member chosen to go to Hollywood for a movie role. He's been taking acting classes for the last several months in hopes of becoming a big actor one day. Last week, listener Ruby who is an actress and independent filmmaker called into the show (April 25) to share that she had a paid movie role to offer someone else on the show. The movie takes place in the Civil War era and the role is for a dirtbag guy who manhandles a woman in a bar. She wanted Lunchbox to fulfill the role she had open on her independent film. He said he wanted to be paid at least $1,001 per day which is $1 more than Amy is getting paid for her new movie role. Though Ruby didn't have that same amount to offer him as it's an independent film with a micro budget. She offered him $150 a day, and she pays for travel and lodging to the shoot in Ohio. Ruby plans to send the film into film festivals, and pitch the script for a larger movie.
We got an update from Lunchbox (May 2nd) on if he plans to accept the role. Right now, he's leaning towards no because he thinks he could be too big for the movie role, and needs more money and better transportation. However, he hasn't committed to saying no. He said he plans to talk to his agent, once his agent gets back from vacation. But no one on the show believes that Lunchbox actually has an agent. So we will find out in the coming days if Lunchbox is going to take the gig or say no to some fame.
