Ken Hanke’s quote in his review of I Am Number Four [“Cranky Hanke,” Feb. 23 Xpress] about Dianna Agron, that the actress was "an apparent graduate of the Corey Haim mouth-breathing school of acting" truly amused me.
I'm a photographer from the East Coast film industry and was shooting in Wilmington, N.C., on Corey's film Silver Bullet. I got quite close to him and his mom, and clearly remember suggesting to Corey that opening his mouth was not acting and that he should actually consider studying because, sooner or later, his cute-boy looks were not enough to sustain a long acting career.
By the way, please observe Robert Redford in Three Days of the Condor and you will see the same kind of “open-mouth” performance.
