Hollywood Once Again Slaps West Virginia Across the Face

Moon passed this along to me. What's Julianne Moore's next movie going to be about? Why in-bred West Virginians of course.

A movie about to be filmed in Pittsburgh is casting Gothic characters - including an albino-like girl and deformed people - to depict West Virginia mountain people. "'Regular-looking" children need not apply.

And is it just me or is the response of the director of the West Virginia Film Office entirely too sanguine? It seems to me that someone in her position might stand up for West Virginians a bit more.

From all sides, it comes.

Well yes - but the derision we've earned over Mike Garrison's appointment is something WV's good ole boy network brought on itself and is, sadly, something that reflects on actual attributes of the state.

To the best of my knowledge, most of the state isn't the product of incest.

The casting director of that movie has been fired.

Please tell me this is going to be a horror movie, like the Hills Have Eyes or something to that effect.
