  • Episode Description
  • Jack has written his fascinating life story, all typed by Rochester, and goes about the task of auditioning actors to play the parts. He casts a gorgeous young woman to play his first love, with his real first girlfriend playing the role of his mother. The tough part is finding just the right youth to play him as a child. He passes on one young man, instead hiring the pushy, demanding boy who's acting as the kid's agent.moreless
