Agents are the source of screwing lots of stuff up, especially when it has to do with money--or lack of it. Agents are reluctant to even let clients know sometimes about offers if the projects don't pay, even if it's something they'd want to do or would be good for their career. It was quite a process to get to Alan, but once we did, he was completely friendly and eager to talk to us. His issues with getting paid seem to stem either from his agent or his irritation with his lack of residuals, not from any general "moneygrubbing".
From what we hear, Mr. Erwin's non-participation has to do with his not wanting to let the fans down when they see that he doesn't actually resemble He-Man. Roger (my production partner) talked to Melendy Britt personally, but that's a story for him to tell. Suffice it to say, we don't anticipate hearing from her. But one never knows.
