The Cast Comment on I OUGHT TO BE IN PICTURES
Daryl Marks comments on his role as Herb, a struggling screenwriter who abandoned his New York family 16 years earlier to settle in Hollywood: "Having the opportunity to play such a challenging role as Herb has been an experience that I will treasure for a long, long time. Herb is such a complex character to get a hold of and it has been both a demanding and exhilarating journey. Herb is struggling with demons from his past, and when he is confronted with them head on, it makes for an amazing story. To find the comedy from such a sad and difficult situation is thanks to the beautiful direction we received from Andrea Emmerton. Neil Simon's words are like poetry, and to bring his poetry to life would not have been possible without the strengths of both Hayley Ferguson and Vanessa Taylor. They have given me so much to work with and it has been truly an honor to have worked with two such professionals."
