I think Sherron Apple is a much better virtual celebrity then this new movie. Of course in Macross Plus they don't cover up the fact that she is a robot... but they cover up that she doesn't think for herself. Cooler concept....

just out of curiosity, is there any kind of fear in hollywood about virtual actors?

I just wonder...

This article seems to indicate there is "Niccol seems amused by the media's rush to expose the marketing of Simone." (being a fake fake...)

there is, somewhat... cause i remember when jar jar binks got first introduced, i remember some entertainment show interviewing a bunch of actors (liam neeson? tom hanks) about what they think of virtual actors... i vaguely remember tom hanks cracking a joke about it...

You know who should be afraid is the screen extra's guild :D

And is there some kind of stuntman guild? Them too. :D

Array, I think we're all agreed on the reality of what they actually have to fear...

I just like the idea of them being very afraid :D

It's the sadist in me :D
