Jettisode 20 – America’s Got Talent?
In Jettisode 20 (where did 19 go?), Jett begs the question if America’s got talent? Why is it that most of today’s top Hollywood talent are actually foreign imports? When did America stop producing leading men? Russell Crowe, Gerard Butler, Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Mel Gibson, Daniel Day Lewis, Hugh Jackman….the list goes on.
Now I’m not saying we don’t have any home grown actors who can carry a film. Leonardo DeCaprio, Denzel Washington, George Clooney, and Tom Cruise can still open a film but it is astounding how the number of top actors these days are from overseas. Is it breeding? Ambition? Pure talent? Training? Listen to Jett’s take and leave your comments and insight below.
