We've been told by certain hard partying sources that Hollywood is all about keeping score, especially in the fierce world of scoops about superhero movies. That's why we've asked Dr. Nathaniel Worcester of the Hollywood Institute of Keeping Score to comment on their recent decision to award points to the website Comicbookmovie.com for the recent news that Dave Bautista would be playing Drax the Destroyer in Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
"The decision was simple," said Worcester, stroking his long, white beard. "Comicbookmovie.com was the first website to state that Bautista was being tested for the role. They accurately reported the scoop along with other actors also trying out for the Drax role back in January of this year."
"In addition, CBM also did not jump the gun and prematurely report that Jason Momoa had received the role of Drax. WhWhether you believe Momoa was offered the role was up to you and whether you believe Hollywood Reporter over a site with over two dozen certified trade scoops to its name. However, the point is irrelevant as Momoa will not be playing Drax in the movie. His alleged negotiations are only speculative fodder and seems to be, in this established Hollywood scoop certifier's opinion, a desperate attempt to save face."
"Hollywood Reporter should also receive some points for being the first to actually report the news," Worcester added. "However, anyone who tries to claim that they scooped the Bautista news first on March 10 should really check their facts first."
So there you have it, Hollywood score enthusiastics. Now we know what the score is in Hollywood.
