Listen to/Watch entire show:
Not too long ago, I was trying to cast a television show, and we wanted to cast a certain actor who just wasn't doing television. We offered him the role, and the answer was no. So we offered it again, more insistently, and the answer was still no, but I called his manager back and said, Look, in the spirit of never taking no for an answer, maybe if we just sat down with him? Filled him in on the part and the series? Talked about the amazing quality of life you have as an actor on a television series...?
