Stunt Casting

John explains the concept of stunt casting in television–to boost ratings for a show–and asks Hollywood Historian, Manny Pacheco, if Feature Film history has anything comparable. It spurs an interesting conversation about uncredited cameos as well as gratuitous music scenes and even the treatment of minorities in films of the first half of 20th century. It’s a great perspective on Hollywood, entertainment and Film history from a new angle.
