If there’s one thing celebs can bond over, it’s a mutual dislike ofbadly behaved directors.
So whenEuphoria actorLuke Gage shared a now-viral video of an unidentified directormocking him for living in a”tiny apartment” during a Zoom audition, not realizing his mic was unmuted, dozens of stars rallied behind the actor.
“Classy response Lukas,” Mad Men alumJanuary Jones commented on the video, which was posted on Instagram and Twitter on Friday, Nov. 20. “What an entitled a–hole, dm me who it was so I can make note not to ever work with that person.”
Many commentators immediately tried to guess the person’s identity. And 25-year-old Lukas, who described thehim as a “s–t talking director,” played along but kept it private.
“NAME NAMES,” commented writer and comedianJordan Firstman, to whichLukas responded, “100k likes for the name.” As of Saturday morning, the video has been viewed more than 437,000 times on Instagramand liked more than 169,000 times on Twitter.
January wrote, “I have a guess.” She did notgive any names, nor didEmmy Rossum, who stars with Lukasin the new Peacock seriesAngelyne. Butthe formerShamelessstardidwage her own guess, and share adisturbing account of her own bad experience with a director.
