If the acting thing ever falls to the wayside, maybe Angelina Jolie will reconsider a former goal: Becoming a funeral director.
The 36-year-old Oscar winner told CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday that she had a plan in place if she couldn't find her way in Hollywood.
"It sounds like this very strange, eccentric, dark thing to do but in fact I lost my grandfather and was very upset with the funeral," she said in the interview. "This whole idea of how somebody passes and how family deals with this passing and what death is should be addressed in a different way. If this whole acting thing didn't work out, that was going to be my path."
According to the Hollywood Reporter, one-half of the comedy duo behind “Flight of the Conchords” has said the team is angling to turn the series into a film.
"We're going to try and do a movie," said Bret McKenzie at “The Muppets” premiere last week (the actor/musician worked on the soundtrack). "We just need a story."
McKenzie and Jermaine Clement’s HBO series ended in 2009, but the pair maintain a dedicated fan base.
