HBO documentary Casting By

I haven't seen a thread on this yet. It's a fabulous documentary primarily about the legendary casting director Marion Dougherty. A bit of it is also about Lynn Stalmaster. Jon Voight's story about getting the role in Midnight Cowboy is fantastic. I have a feeling Travolta put out to Stalmaster (a man) to try to get the role in The Last Detail. He didn't get it. Taylor Hackford is in this as someone who doesn't seem to feel that casting directors have any real effect in the process and certainly don't deserve Oscar recognition for their work. What a douchebag. Why is Helen Mirren still married to this asshole?
