Hollywood PR hackery

The following note from a studio publicist made its way into Variety recently. It is indeed the job of a very well paid person to write clarifications to the press such as #2 below:

Cynthia Schneider is sending you a release about her client, Craig T. Nelson, being cast in THE FAMILY STONE.

Just a couple of additions/changes:

1) other cast members are: Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Luke Wilson, Dermot Mulroney, Claire Danes

2) in the description of the movie, please delete “self-absorbed Gotham socialite” and replace with “high strung New York businesswoman”

Call me if you have any questions!
