Dog Typecast In Only Best Friend Roles
NEW YORK -Shadow, a neighborhood Terrier, has been experiencing difficulty breaking from her usual roles in Hollywood, having been typecast as the “best friend,” sources indicate.
“Believe me, I try for other roles,” she began explaining. “But I am just always relegated to best friend. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fine, I appreciate the work, but still, it would be nice to showcase the full range of my abilities.”
Shadow’s owner/agent, Brett Powel, agreed it’s an unfortunate circumstance.
“She’s truly brilliant,” Powel remarked. “She can express such a wide variety of emotion, she can do tricks, she listens and doesn’t complain ever, she’s great. I don’t know what it is, but they just only cast her as the best friend.”
“Though best friend roles are frustrating,” Shadow added, “at least I’m only two years old, so I have about another year before I age out of that and have to play exclusively mom roles.”
