Auteur Watch - Frank and Mark Ridley
Close enough. Frank's got a part in the upcoming Inside Llewyn Davis... incidentally, get in touch with Kati Batchelder, as there's still time to play an extra in Inside Llewyn Davis! Kewl! Brother Mark is apparently a big-shot stand-up comedian... maybe not Jeff Dunham big, but still quite big and respected in the industry in general, so that's nothing to sneeze at. Okay, technically, the Ridleys aren't auteurs, but they're good enough to be in a Coen brothers movie, so they must have at least a Master's degree in something. That seems to be how it works. It's like working with Stanley Kubrick, but clearly the Coens can get stuff done a little bit faster. Frank was also in I'm Paige Wilson, but he played Oscar Tuscon in that one.
