Actress Jordan Ladd (CABIN FEVER, DEATH PROOF, CLUB DREAD, GRACE) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen for a passionate discussion that covers not only her long career in front of the cameras but the honest truth of just how never-ending the struggle actually is for ALL actors. Listen as Jordan reveals how she set out to prove herself and build her career her own way despite having parents and grandparents that are nothing short of Hollywood legends. From sadly having to pass on what could have been her first major break in DOOM GENERATION, to just how confusing the audition/casting process can be (Jordan was almost in Joe Lynch’s WRONG TURN 2… only Joe never even knew about it until THIS podcast!), to working on sets with iconic filmmakers like Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino… and working on sets where no one involved with the project was doing it for the right reasons, to the long lulls in-between gigs where all hope can seem to be lost, to the importance of sticking with an agent or manager that truly believes in you and not falling for for the song and dance of a bigger agency full of empty promises, to her stance on doing nudity on screen, to the reality of how behind the scenes politics beyond your knowledge can make your life miserable, to how one bad decision from a producer, studio, distributor, or sales company can (almost) kill a movie in its tracks before it even gets its chance to be seen, to the importance of having the true unconditional love of a pet in your life, to how she personally remains focused and determined even during a business climate when things seem incredibly dire… this is exactly the kind of truth, passion, and inspiration that you listen to The Movie Crypt for.
