Re: Man Of Steel: The Blue Boy Scout Grows Up...And Kicks Ass (spoilers)

The performance was played like the typical raving lunatic, though. There was no subtlety or confidence conveyed really.

Re: An agent read my script, he said he'll reply with notes. Is he interested?

There's no hard and fast rule. If the guy seems cool and like somebody you'd want to work with/somebody who can sell you or your work then maybe you decide to enter into a hip pocket type situation?...

Don't do it over email. Do it over the phone. Be honest as to why you're doing it, wish 'em luck, and move on. Everybody involved will get over it.

Re: Deciphering what an agent said

All the other stuff is confusing -- the referral, the fact that it's already at CAA, the follow up -- that's all totally confusing.
