No need to display narcissism
To the editor:
I cannot believe someone wrote a letter to the newspaper to display such narcissism about how much better looking he is compared to the stars of the movie "Killshot." Maybe that person should stop and think maybe there were hundreds or thousands of extras applications turned in and his didn't cut it. Or maybe it was a first-come, first-serve basis, and that person's application did not make it in time. But that's just my way of thinking.
Perhaps this person was right. Maybe he is better looking than the stars, and they didn't want him in the movie. Maybe other applicants turned in more than one application to better their chances. Or maybe others were better suited for the job. I don't know about that process, but I don't see the need for someone to display his cocky disappointment in the regional newspaper.
