i sure do hope you wrote your script as well as this poem. well two things here. i am not interested in the role for less than $600,000. i am sorry to be so tuff on the money, but that is my bottom line. after i heard about your meeting with that bum of an actor i am much less willing to work for a penny less than 6K. that meeting told me you were not 100% sure you wanted me for the role or 100% willing to do whatever to get me in the role. i made stronger moves to get extra’s in my film. you have the ego of a performer when it comes to casting. to this day i have never received a direct offer for the role. i could have cut my hair 50 times already. if i wanted me for a manson film, i would have had me a long time ago. i hope you put more passion into the rest of the casting job and the making of your movie. if i wanted me for a manson film i would have had me in it 100%. i can’t imagine to have changed my vision of buffalo 66 in any way. without ricci i would have never made the trip to buffalo land. good luck with your film kind regards vincent gallo
