Dear Mr. Lee,
My name is Ermgengarde Otis Weinstein, no relation to the Weinstein brothers of Miramax, although I do have a brother named Max. He is a beagle. As a talent agent representing feline talent in the entertainment industry, I would like to congratulate you on your Best Director Academy Award™ for “The Life of Pi,” a film that prominently features a feline actor.
We want to reach out to mainstream filmmakers to encourage you to cast feline talent in future projects and to raise awareness of feline artistry and our many contributions to the industry. My clients (which include Terry, who was credited only by the generic “Cat” in Ben Lewin’s celebrated 2012 film, “The Sessions” and Tardar Sauce, currently enjoying great fame as “Grumpy Cat”) work hard to achieve recognition in an industry that often discriminates against feline talent, labeling us demanding and temperamental. Although we recognize that the role of Richard Parker in “The Life of Pi” was largely generated by CGI, we know that there was a real feline artist behind those computerized images and we commend you for helping him to so powerfully convey the true essence of feline nature. The deep indifference communicated by Richard Parker’s hindquarters sauntering into the jungle at the end of the film will go down in history as one of the feline acting community’s proudest and most powerful moments. You helped us get there.
Thank you, Mr. Lee. We wish you great things in your future. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss future projects.
