Née John Everett DeCoste, this Mr. Carter took up directing once he grew tired of being at play in the fields of '70s icons... your Pam Griers, your McClouds, your Benjis, what have you. He just did one episode of American Masters, and apparently that experience was enough of a taste that he decided never to direct again. No, acting's the thing. And he's of a certain age to consider Spielberg a young whippersnapper, but if you do need a meeting, I suggest going the Pam Grier route. Don't even need my b.s. software for that!
Pam Grier starred in Jackie Brown directed by
Quentin Tarantino... surely he's a springboard to Spielberg, right? You might have to endure a lot of fawning over, however. I've heard he's kind of a film geek.
