The premiere of the Warner Bros show V on ABC has brought back some memories for WME agent Adam Isaacs. As he told me years ago, “I auditioned to be a guest lizard named Howie — a sort of Jewish guest lizard — on the original V. And it was during my third callback that I decided ‘I don’t think I can do this,’ and I didn’t want to be an actor anymore. And that sent me from LA back to NY and into the William Morris training program. Robert Englund [aka Freddy Krueger] got the part, and when I saw his performance, I thought, ‘I so could have done that better.'”
