Yes, just who is, "Hollywood Girl?"
Well, it's not Quinn, the main character of the "Hollywood Girl". It's actually Courtney Zito: extremely adorable, quite talented and unarguably driven, girl o'Hollywood: actor, director, writer, and producer of her, "Hollywood Girl", web based comedy series.

You can see the first installment of her webisode here, or all of them, currently three are available, on the "Hollywood Girl web site. And no, this is not a review of her show. It's more like an introduction if you do not already know about her and her works.
Felicia DayI love seeing anyone who can go grassroots to the top. This underdog attitude, taking an impossible chain of events by the throat and driving it to your desired destination, has always been my passion, going back to the days of early John Carpenter using cheaply bought, but going in the end fancy out and beyond creative powers of Hollywood. Those who have gone their own direction without big money. People who have entertained us by pulling together friends, others interested in their vision and simply going for it. One could throw others in there, although they all seem to be men; like "Swingers" writer, actor, Jon Favreau, where they couldn't get permits, so they simply walked into a bar and started shooting, trying to be unobtrusive; or Kevin Smith's early films, or even John Waters (although of a very different aesthetic, I'll admit).
But Courtney is another universe of female, one stop shoppers, type filmmakers. These new producer et al, ladies are oh so much better looking, with cleavage far more befitting and appreciated (John Waters excepted).
Hollywood Girl is a fun, cute, comedy series with three episodes and a few character blogs for Quinn. She is clumsy, adorable (as I've said), and just a common girl trying to make it in the surreal world Hollywood is, has been and probably always will be. Many of the gags and devices are tried and true but Courtney's execution pulls them off. You want her to succeed, both character and actor (and director, and writer, and producer, and, probably many other things that go unsaid; yes, Courtney, we noticed....).
Check, it out.
