ASK STUDIO READER STAN
If you actually have a question, send it to StudioReaderStan@aol.com. If it’s legible, we might just post it here. As you can see, I'll answer just about anything.
Kevin from Parts Unknown asks:
Studio Reader Stan, why wasn’t Jethro featured more in the cartoon?
Well Kevin, seeing as how he’s mute and invisible, it poses a unique challenge that we haven’t been able to overcome. But don’t let that take away from his brilliant performance. Remember, mute and invisible monkeys are people, too … or something like that. Anyway, we’ve hired scientists from Cal-Tech to help us with this dilemma. By the way, what's the weather like in Parts Unknown this time of year? I've always wanted to visit.
Patty from Wisconsin asks:
Studio Reader Stan, in the cartoon, why would Mr. Gold not want to read scripts? Isn’t his job to make movies?
Mr. Gold is based partly on an executive who has reached that point in his career where he’s had success and is no longer that hungry. If he makes a new movie, fine, but he’d just as rather be out on his yacht in the Mediterranean. I partly based this character on someone I’ve actually dealt with, and so the depiction is sadly true.
Lacey from Florida asks:
Studio Reader Stan, have you ever thought about posing for Playgirl?
Lacey, I’m flattered that you find the drawing of Studio Reader Stan to be so sexy. Unbelievably, however, you are the only one to feel this way. Therefore, until the masses rise up and demand it, it won’t be happening.
