Get Him to the Greek

If youcould bottle enthusiasm, generosity of spirit and a touch ofnaivety, you would get this young gentleman.

someone in particular.

INT. ALDOUS’S GIANT MODERN APARTMENT - NIGHT *
We hear the VOICE of Aldous Snow (30s), English rock star,
drugged out of his mind, in his empty apartment. Floor to *

the London cityscape. We PAN PAST a leather couch, a pile of *
trash, an Andy Warhol on the floor, various drugparaphernalia.
You enjoying this?
You know I am, love.
REVEAL Aldous on the floor kissing a PROSTITUTE-LIKE WOMAN.
How about this?
Suddenly Aldous is peeing on the Prostitute.
I like that alright... what thebloody sh*t?
How about this?
Aldous THROWS UP on the prostitute and COLLAPSES.
You piece of sh*t!
The Prostitute KICKS Aldous. Aldous laughs as she leaves.
(with an odd flourish)
You are welcome, milady!
He lights a cigarette, grabs the remote and FLIPS ON THE TV.
