    Great episode!!

    I always liked Lovitz, great on SNL, but why the subway commercials ?? lol.

    A lot of people compare this to Mimi Rogers' 'Beauty Rest', they are both similar and both great eps in this series.

    I especially liked this episode, it is one of my favorites. Does anyone have an MP3 or something of the music from this episode? I thought it rocked.

    Yeah, it might be hard to believe, but most of the time Tales is. Usually doesnt hamper it though, and this is a case where at least I don't think it was hurt here either. The shot at the end of the actor holding the skull is classic. Plus, the casting was great.

    Yes, it's true that the series have to be unlikely, but this kind of things are different for me. But this is a good episode, SPOILERS and the Lovitz's reaction when he discovered his role is the best. SPOILER

    I agree this one is better when you think about it more and view it more than once.

    ^^ I am going to refer to John Lovitz as "the Lovitz" from now on.

    Anyway, this is definitely one of my favorite episodes, and for once, I didn't guess the twist before the episode had ended. Plus the casting was just awesome, as people have already stated. I found it hillarious that Lovitz's character kept referring to himself as an actor of breadth and talent when the man seems to play the same sort of characters every single time no matter what show he's on; ie, The Critic, The Simpsons, Saturday Night Live. Not that I'm dissing the Lovitz, however. XD And John Astin was a scream in this.

    Just thought of something: why didn't they just use the skulls of the staff? Guess this director was very, very particular. And who kept stealing the skulls? That was hilarious.

    Well, I imagine with the cast originally being what they were, there had to be a guy with a bigger skull fixation than the director. Or maybe he kept stealing them and claiming they were missing so they'd um..."get"...more?

    I dunno?
