Thompson on Hollywood
HBO seems to be in late-stage talks with Diane Keaton for Bill Condon and Cynthia Mort's show Tilda, inspired by Hollywood bloggers like Nikki Finke.

A great actress, Keaton is a tad older, thinner, more glam and a lot funnier than the real-life Nikki Finke, who is in her mid-50s. Finke's as charming as a killer shark, as serious as a heart attack. Think Burt Lancaster in The Sweet Smell of Success.

While IFC offers some casting ideas, the real characters in Tilda's world, the sources of her clout, are the ones she talks to on the phone every day. How would we cast this Hollywood power troica, for example: WME's Ari Emanuel, Universal's Ron Meyer and CAA's Kevin Huvane? How about three actors from Alias: Bradley Cooper, Ron Rifkin and Michael Vartan?

    This show needs an Anne Thompson character. I propose Laura Linney for the part.
