Famous in Love (2017) s01e01 Episode Script


1 ["California Dreamin'" by Sia playing] All the leaves are brown And the sky is gray I'll have to ask you to put your seat back for landing.
- Oh, of course.
- And I'm sorry.
I hope it's not a bother.
- What's your name? - Cindy.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
If I was in LA California dreamin' Oh oh oh On such a winter's day - You ready, Miss Townsen? - Let's do this.
All the leaves are brown And the sky is gray I've been for a walk On a winter's day (paparazzi) 'Why'd Rainer walk off the set?' 'Was it because of Jake?' [indistinct shouting] Welcome home, Miss Townsen.
Thanks, Derrick.
Oh on such a winter's day On such a winter's day On such a winter's day Day Yeah (Cassandra) 'Can I borrow five bucks from the rent jar?' - Cassie? - Please.
I can't bear another PB and J for lunch.
You guys make me the banker for a reason.
- It's called making rent.
- Fine.
I'll just chew my fingernails.
That's protein right, Jake? Cheese enchilada.
Nachos with extra jalapenos.
Fine, but if we're doing Mexican we're springing for extra guac.
Okay, and then after lunch, we can go to Gold Brothers Studios and audition for the "Locked" movie.
You're seriously going to that cattle call? Hell, yes.
"Locked" is the biggest book series since Harry Potter.
That's exactly why 10,000 girls are auditioning.
And we all have an equal shot at it.
- "We?" - You're coming with me.
I'm not taking no for an answer.
Cassie! Come on.
My parents would be so unhappy if they found out I was spending my time auditioning for stuff instead of actually studying.
You do know that every time you tell your parents you like math you're giving the performance of a lifetime.
It's not math.
It's econ.
And I don't.
hate it.
But you don't love it.
Admit it.
You wanna be an actress.
[sighs] Yeah, okay, I do.
I-I-I want to be an actress, but it doesn't matter.
As soon as I tell my parents that they're just gonna yank my ass back home.
So then don't tell them and come to "Locked" audition with me.
Well, Paige, what have you got to lose? I'm unstoppable Really? What are we wearing? - Oh, my God, okay.
- We're gonna go shopping and then we'll just hide the tags and return it all tomorrow.
'Cause I'm unstoppable [music continues] Up on top of it all No one knows why the romance between these two Hollywood mega stars ended 'but there's certainly been a lot of speculation.
' 'And with behavior this erratic' it's easy to understand why so many people think Rainer fell off the wagon.
Jordan's always been protective of his friend.
'Maybe he was just trying to help.
' You're on TV.
When asked to comment, Rainer Devon declined.
Or maybe you're too busy duking it out with your ex-BFF.
'Am I right, buddy?' Why aren't you commenting? I don't need to.
He knows what he did.
'Maybe Rainer's on a bender because he's lonely.
' 'With girlfriend Tangey Turner's mega tour selling out' these two are miles apart.
Do you think you could get me tickets to her show? And I wonder what Hollywood mega producer Nina Devon feels about the public feud between her son and his ex-bestie? What good is power if you can't protect the ones you love? Tune in tomorrow to get the latest dish.
There's a car waiting outside.
He'll take you home.
Thank you.
Does she need to sign a confidentiality agreement? I took care of it last night.
Find out where Barrett Hopper does lunch? Nice meeting you.
It was a pleasure.
I'll call you.
I'm your mother, and I'll take care of Barrett but with all these rumors flying around about you starting fights there's talk that you're un-insurable.
Mom, I'm not drinking again.
I'll pee in a cup.
Whatever it takes.
You've got that look, the one you get when you don't wanna tell me something.
I gave you the lead in "Locked" because I know you'll deliver.
Okay, you don't need to give me the executive sandwich.
Just tell me what's going on.
You know how deeply invested in this movie I am? It has to be a hit.
I'm ready.
I want this.
And I know that you need it.
I believe you, but we're having a hard time selling it foreign with just your name on the poster.
I sent the script to Jordan.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
We're after a few people, and he's just one of them.
Do I have a say in this? Sure.
Either you're in or you're out.
You know you'll love it You know you'll need it (female #1) 'The studio's casting the net far and wide' in their search for the female lead 'in its highly anticipated film franchise "Locked.
"' 'The movies starring Rainer Devon' 'are destined to become a worldwide phenomenon.
' 'And every actress in Hollywood is vying for the part.
' If we scoot over a little, I think we can get into the shot.
(Paige) 'Uh, let's not worry about that.
' - Oh, my God.
- We're actually doing this.
- Next! - Hi, I'm Cassandra Perkins.
- And this is my friend - Hi, Paige Townsen.
There's no D at the end.
Just an N, not an ND.
Just an N.
- Paige, you're babbling.
- Uh, no.
No, I'm not.
What? Seriously.
Oh, my God.
Why can't I stop talking like this? - I really want this.
- 'Next!' Hold my head inside your hands Talk me through the hours If I lost you all I'd say.
I think I might throw up.
You're not nervous anymore, are you? Uh, no.
Now, I'm in pain.
(female #2) 'This is your shot, people.
Listen up.
' 'Cassandra Perkins, you're next.
' If I lost you all I'd say is oh my my Dude, there's a chance we're gonna be working together again.
Can we just put Tangey behind us? You still don't get it.
This isn't about her.
It's about who you are.
Or who you turned out not to be.
- I know how it looks, but - But what? Just get out of my way.
[music continues] Well? I'm okay with whatever happens.
Yeah, right.
[sighs] - Sorry I'm late.
- Well, hello.
Cards on the table, you know we added Jordan Wilder to the "Ed" list, right? Yep.
You hardly have any scenes together.
It's mostly you, alone on a magical island with August.
You can't buy this kind of hype.
It's a complex role.
I need a real actress.
(Nina) 'Calm down, Wyatt.
It's a publicity stunt.
' 'We'll ride the wave, and then we'll just decide that' Dakota was right for the role all along.
Or Alexis.
(girl) What are you doing? [instrumental music] Thank you, Cassie, for talking me into this.
This is seriously, like, the best day of my life.
I knew it.
I knew you'd kill it.
I don't know if they believed me, but I believed me.
I really felt like I was August in there.
Hey, did you hear that? She killed it.
Yeah, Paige Townsen without the D.
Remember her name and mine too Cassandra two S's three A's - Let's go right now.
- Yeah.
Rain, you're still excited about Dakota, right? And Alexis.
- They're both great.
- Good.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Open the door Friday morning on the train I got my black suit on my office pumps again (paparazzi) 'Nina, Nina.
Over here.
Nina, here.
' 'Nina, over here.
Nina, really quick.
' I'm somebody else you ain't met me before I'll put my real face on.
- Tommy.
How's the family? - All good.
Look, I don't have you down, but I'll get you a table right away.
Thanks, but I'm not here to eat.
'Oh, I miss those days when that little pisher' only came in here because he was picking up your lunch.
[chuckles] My son hasn't had a drink in over a year.
Then tell him I said cheers.
This negative press has got to stop.
Sure, I'll finish it when I decide to.
You were on my desk for two years, Barrett.
You know how I play.
Do you really wanna start something with me? Nina, this isn't personal.
Feldman's making me an offer.
I'm only one filthy secret away from going global.
And it's your son who's going to take me there.
[groans] You were a whimpering little twit when I hired you.
- You remember that, right? - Yes, yes.
Do you also remember that I have friends who enjoy taking care of my problems? They don't just squeeze.
they cut.
Please, let go.
- Stay away from my son.
- Okay.
Because I don't wanna ever have to grab your balls again.
It's beneath me.
He needs a bag of ice.
Jordan, what happened to you? [indistinct chatter] You need to back off.
I showed him all the things That he didn't understand Whoa And then I let him go Now there's one in California Who's been cursing my name 'Cause I found me a better lover in the UK Hey hey Until I made my getaway One two three they gonna run back to me 'Cause I'm the best baby that they never gotta keep One two three they gonna run back to me They always wanna come but they never wanna leave Exes and oh oh ohs they haunt me Like gho-oh-oh-ost they want me To make 'em all all all They won't let go Exes and ohs - Is that vintage? - Yeah, it was my grandma's.
My mom wanted to bury her in it but it was her favorite so I kept it.
- And you still wear it? - I'm wearing it for the play.
Jake wanted us to dress period.
He's so smart.
- 'Lacey?' - Brody.
Oh, this is crazy, I was just about to call you.
Really? Yeah, that is that is crazy.
I gotta go help my friend fold laundry.
If you ever wanna bring her, I'm a more-the-merrier kind of guy.
Yeah, sure.
I'll-I'll ask her.
- See you soon.
- Bye.
Who was that? I don't know.
Some rich dude from Beverly Hills.
Couldn't find his way home.
Really? It seemed like he knew you.
[cell phone vibrating] Hello? (woman on phone) 'Paige Townsend?' Yes, no, yes, without the D.
'You got a callback for "Locked" tomorrow.
' - Um, uh, wait? What? - 'Yes.
' 'Four o'clock, at the studio.
' Okay.
Thank you.
You think that you know me you don't I'm right where you want me.
(woman on phone) 'I'm sorry, Alexis.
I couldn't get her.
' 'But she'll return.
' Wait You said that yesterday.
'Look, Lexie' 'maybe you don't want to talk to him.
' What is that supposed to mean? 'He may be your agent' 'but I still believe in you.
' Thanks.
I'm not choosing sides, if that's why you're here.
It's not.
Did you come to protect me from melanoma? Aah! - Drink? - I'm sober, remember? Sorry, it's kind of hard to keep up in this town.
We were in rehab together.
Yeah, but I thought you were just doing that to spin some bad boy cred.
Eh, that was my mom's idea.
That's brilliant.
Nina is like "Jeopardy" smart.
They might offer Jordan the role of Ed.
Bang me.
Maybe he won't get it.
We both know if Jordan wants it, he'll get it.
Rainer, can you guys please just get over this? I feel like I'm reliving my parents' divorce.
You didn't hear it from me but it's down to you and Dakota for August.
Rain, you know how much I need this.
Convince Jordan not to read and I'll make sure you get the part.
How am I supposed to do that? You'll figure it out.
I'll talk to him.
Thank you, Lexie.
- I'm not screwing him.
- Didn't ask you to.
Kicking down the walls in our way Break break break The rules Oh, for God sakes, Paige, just rip off that tag and walk out the door like you own that Dolce already.
I don't know what you're talking about.
I think you're into more than just his burgers.
So don't give me that "He's the best guy friend you've ever had" line.
He is the best guy friend I've ever had and I'm not gonna screw that up.
You're already screwin' it up.
By not screwing him, because you know it's gonna happen.
You're gonna wait too long, he'll meet someone else and how are you gonna feel then? Look, you're into him and I'm pretty sure he's into you too.
So do something about it.
Hey, can I borrow your car? 'I'm gonna meet Kyle at the Pizza Dome.
' Kyle with nine toes? He has ten toes, Jake! Just two of them are webbed.
Um, you didn't, uh, get a call about the movie, did you? Those losers wouldn't recognize talent if it sat on their faces.
[chuckles] - See you later.
- Love you.
'Love you more.
' Oh oh oh My heart pitter-patters to the broken sound You're the only one that can calm me down - 'Hello.

Free animal Satisfy your craving This is what you crave Know what you're made of What you're made of Flesh and bones won't lie Nice view.
It's like a different city at night.
I was talking about your ass.
But the lights are pretty too.
He sent you, right? Rainer wants you to turn down "Locked.
" If they make me an offer, I'm taking it.
Do you really think that's a good idea? You guys can't even be in the same room together.
I'll deal with it.
I know why he's so mad at you.
Was it worth it? You ask a lot of questions.
It's called making conversation.
Maybe you should ask me something.
Wanna get naked? Why not? You're the only one that can calm me down Free animal free animal My heart pitter-patters to the broken sound Free animal free animal Free animal I'm a free animal free animal Free animal free animal Satisfy your - What? - What? What? - You want some ice cream? - No.
Especially not if you're eating it.
Always picking around the sides and just leaving that little hard ball in the middle with mint chocolate beautiful chips just, just no, I don't, I don't want that.
Nobody wants that.
Did I leave the toilet seat up again? Can you just put on a shirt, please.
Why? It never bothered you before.
Well it's it's bothering me now obviously because I-I, I'm trying to study and y-you're, you're just standin' here with your Are you full on mad at me right now? Uh! Uh, what, w-why are you asking me questions that I don't know the answers to.
Because you're trying to tell me something but I-I don't read minds, so I can't figure it out.
Well, can you just stop like doing this while I-I'm studying That's very rude of you to just walk around shirtless knowing it's probably very hard for me to concentrate.
And I just, I don't really know what to say anymore because I really want to rip the tags off but I don't know how to because you are my best friend and I'm just really confused right now and I don't want to Hey.
Paige, just breathe.
Uh, is there something you guys wanna tell me? I got a call back on the movie.
- 'What?' - Yeah.
Oh, my God, Paige, that's incredible.
- It is? - Yes.
- You're-you're not mad at me? - Are you serious? Would you be mad if it was me and not you? No, of course not.
Paige, this is a total game-changer.
It's just a callback.
Hey, let's, uh, let's drink that champagne Cassie stole from her uncle's funeral.
Um, it was a wake, and I took a bottle to go.
That's not stealing.
It's called a party favor.
- Holy crap.
- Huh.
Paige, do you think that Rainer's gonna be there? (Jake) 'Big day for you.
' Get any sleep? Um, a little.
After Cassie finally stopped talking.
[chuckles] She's excited for you.
So am I.
I really don't know what I'd do without you guys.
Um I feel like last night.
before Cassie got home, there was.
maybe somethin' else you wanted to say.
Um uh, really you felt that way? I think I know what you were gonna say.
[chuckles] Wow.
That's very, uh.
We should talk about this after your play.
- Yeah, yeah, right.
- Um.
But maybe we can grab a drink or something.
- Yeah, yeah, sure.
- Yeah.
(Cassie) 'Did you just rip the tags off?' What are you doing here? Can you believe that Priss Hopper took a restraining order out on me.
There's no loyalty in this town anymore.
Why do you even care? Why do you let them get to you? I need this movie, Rain.
And until we start shooting, neither one of us can afford to make a mistake.
[sighs] Jordan started this, not me.
And I'm a big boy, I can take care of Barrett.
Just stay out of the press until someone yells action.
I'll find a way to get rid of Hopper.
When you say get rid of? - What's that smile for? - Are these today's callbacks? (Nina) 'Um, we'll get them over as quickly as possible.
' Maybe we'll find someone who surprises us.
Right, and I'll tell you a bedtime story with a happy ending.
What are those called again? Oh, yeah, fairytales.
Mom, are you mad at Jordan or Barrett or me? Do I have to pick? [sighs] I'm sorry if I let you down.
I'm fixing it.
[sighs] Verouxi Magazine is offering a million dollars for an exclusive video of the next Jordan-Rainer smash up.
[cell phone ringing] Oh, my God! Nina, you're not allowed to call me.
This is illegal.
I'm hanging up and dialing 911.
I know what you want.
And I'll get you there.
But you'll have to leave my son out of it.
Why the hell should I trust you? Because the real story isn't about Rainer.
'It's about Tangey Turner.
' That slut who cheated on my son with Jordan Wilder.
I'm listening.
We can't forget the past, Noah.
'Cause that's saying it never happened, and that's a lie.
I came back.
Isn't that enough? I can't be with you unless you can forgive me.
But I do forgive you.
Hey, thanks for coming in, Dakota.
Are you kidding? You saved me from having lunch with my mom.
I took her to Craig's last night and she brought her autograph book with her.
[chuckles] It's kinda cute.
It's kinda cute until she asks your ex for his autograph.
[chuckles] Oh, it's been real.
Sort of.
So we still have to play out this "open call" thing, but.
Oh, yeah, of course.
Um, thanks, Rain.
That was fun.
For sure.
[door closes] [dramatic music] Okay, this is Paige Townsend.
Oh, no, no, no, it's Townsen.
- There is no D at the end.
- Okay.
Uh, hi, I'm Rainer.
[excitedly] Hi! Um, I'm.
[clears throat] Paige, nice to meet you.
Sorry if my hands are a little clammy.
I actually am really nervous 'cause this is my first audition actually second if you count the one I just had yesterday.
And if my best friend Cassandra was here she'd pinch me so I'd stop talking like a nervous goober.
[clears throat] Did I just say goober? Do you want me to pinch you? No, um, maybe.
Actually, no.
Hey, can we start? Give us a second.
- Can I tell you something? - Oh.
[whispering] Thank you.
We got this.
Yeah, I think we do.
We're ready when you are.
We can't forget the past, Noah because that's like saying it never happened.
That's a lie.
So what are you saying? We're over? Is that what this is? I came back.
Isn't that enough? Look, I can't be with you unless you can forgive me.
But I do.
forgive you.
' Okay, well, thanks, um.
Ha, uh, those doors! Who was that? We light the fuse we make it hot 'Cause we're like fire.
Oh, hello, Miss Townsen.
Yes, would you mind coming back inside? Did I do something wrong? They'd like to see you read with another actor.
- Really? - Yes, really.
Can we move? They're not big on waiting for people.
'We'll get you the scene, and I'll make sure' 'you have enough time to prepare.
' Look, nobody is more surprised by this than they are.
You actually have a shot here.
So pull it together.
Thank you so much for not being mean to me 'cause I could totally cry right now.
- Um, save it for your audition.
- Okay.
One foot in front of the other.
Is this your way of telling me I didn't get the part? No, last I heard, you were still in the running.
- Who told you that? - Alexis.
She's still waiting too.
Corner booth.
Drink's on her.
Sorry about the mess.
[door opens] Well, thank you for coming back in.
- Hi.
- I'm Nina and this is Jordan Wilder.
(Wyatt) 'Wyatt Lippman, director.
' Kateland Hess, writer.
[sighs] Whenever you're ready, Jordan.
I'm sorry in advance if I'm a little nervous.
Let's go.
I don't believe you.
August, there's nothing out there for you.
And how do you know that? Because I've been there.
You lied to me.
[breathing heavily] (Jordan) 'You don't have to do this.
' (Paige) 'Yes, I do.
' 'Oh, when I'm gone, I'll spend every moment I can' 'remembering you.
' That's fantastic.
I think we should go while their jaws are still on the floor.
(Nina) 'Thank you, Paige.
' Goodbye.
- Girl has something.
- No arguments here.
When she says the words, I believe her.
'Cause you left me with tears in my eyes And you left like a thief.
(Nina) 'I can't believe I'm saying this' but did we just find our August? I think I was too over the top.
Like, "Telenovela" over the top.
Back up.
And you took the scenes all the way to the kiss? Yes.
And Rainer was so romantic and Jordan.
Oh, my God! Rawr! The second you get here, we're lockin' lips.
'Start from the beginning.
' 'I wanna hear every little detail' 'and don't leave out anything.
' Rainer? - You got a sec? - Is that him? - 'You were great in there.
' - Holy crap.
Oh, uh, thank you.
Uh, you were too, but, uh of course you were.
You are you.
Would you like to grab a cup of coffee? Yes.
To talk about the movie? No.
I just thought we could hang.
We? Like.
you, me, us, we? Yeah.
[chuckles] Why? - Just say yes.
- Yes! Yes! Okay.
I'll call you back.
Oh, no, no, no, no.
Don't hang up on me.
[indistinct chatter] Something's wrong.
Paige isn't here.
I'm sure she's fine, Jake.
She wouldn't miss this.
Oh, unless she got into an accident or something.
She's with Rainer Devon.
(female #4) 'Places everyone.
' She's still at the audition? He asked her out for coffee.
So much to say Too much or little late So there was this guy.

Thank you.

- Kiss me right now.
- What? I'm not taking no for an answer.

Yeah, I'm good.
Yeah, I'm good.

- Hi, Rainer, this is Cassandra.
- Shh.
- I really love you.

- I'm not.
- Really? 'Cause your lips are moving, and all I'm hearing is blah blah blah.
You've had enough.
I liked you better when you weren't talking.
I didn't go to Jordan's to sleep with him.
Maybe I did.
You have every right to be mad at me.
I'm mad at me right now.
Can you believe I didn't even get the part? 'They gave it to a nobody.
' I'm afraid to call my agent back because I'm scared that she's gonna dump me.
