    I’m confused – why singing/music lessons?

    • WastingTheMorning says:

      Some of the female characters are described playing music in the script. I’m sure they’d like to make it as realistic as possible.

  2. Just a Girl says:

    In the script, I can recall one specific parlor scene where the character of Suzanne is playing piano and singing with what is described as a thin voice.

    There are some rumblings about, as to why a music tutor is required for Bel Ami and this is one of the reasons. Keep in mind the script floating around may also have been changed.

    Also keep in mind that Ben is in the very very early stages of Pre-production and is still in the process of determining his role.

    • Whynot says:

      Musical?! LOL! Makes sense, I sort of guess. I read the script a while ago, and I only remembered that one instance of singing – and it’s SUPPOSED to be bad/weak.

      Thanks for the answer!

    according to the novella, one of the characters works at the Folies Bergere; maybe he’s been recruited to work with that scene?

  5. When I first pulled up the post, I thought he looked a little like David Beckham. Then I read the post and thought, please for the love of God figure out a way to have Rob singing in the movie. I know, I know. But a girl can dream, can’t she?
