On to the reading. Ali's freaked because people are staring at her. Perky blonde lady is sitting on the ground reading while Ali's holding her script and slouching in front of the green screen. She sounds exactly like Ali. Director dude asks her to make it broader and to "articulate each word" and to "make it delicious." Someone needs to lower his expectations, and also be careful about what he says to a 14-year-old.
Dina's in the green room with her mom. Nana's all worried about how Ali's doing. Dina THs that a good director can see if someone has talent. Which, according to that logic, means that Ali doesn't have a chance in hell... if director dude is actually a good director. Nana's just happy that she doesn't hear any tantrums.
Back at the green screen Ali is talking about Harry Potter, Jr. or something. I'm speechless. I heard her say something about a Harry Potter, Jr. when she was running lines with her bro, but didn't think anything of it. Is that really part of this script?Oh, good lord. I... I just... this show can't be over fast enough for me.
Ali's pretending that Michael is in the casting woman's position. Ali's not a perfectionist, but she's worried about what people think of her. Then, mercifully, she's done. Director dude says he's seen enough, but not necessarily in a negative way... which is odd to me. I'd be like, "Stop, make it stop, go away. Go back to singing. Leave the acting world alone!" But no. Blonde woman ushers Ali back to the green room and tells her she did a good job and thanks the Lohan ladies for coming. Dina believes if she doesn't get it, it wasn't meant to be or something like that. They drive off.
Blonde woman (aka the casting director) comes running out of the building flailing her arms and screaming. Did someone forget their purse? No. She wants Ali to come back in and talk to the director/producer. Director dude says that she got the role. Unbelievable. Did they see the same footage that we just saw? Are they really just trying to make a quick buck? I can't. I'm driving my officemate nuts screaming at my television.
