Pantheon: Ms. Posey
Deep, deep depression is the flip side of comedy. Casting agents don't realize it but in order to be funny you have to have that other side.
Ms. Posey is beyond Hip. Her own world. Like Neal Cassady, François Villon, Raoul Duke or GeekLawyer, if you have to look her up, you won't get it once you do. It's a relationship with a public talent that takes time. In late 2007, WAC/P? met and spoke to her briefly in the Newark Airport when he was on the way to Europe, and she was headed to New Mexico to work. She's the rare woman with Southern roots who won't skip along the surface. And not just funny. Her natural quirk and smarts nearly hide how gorgeous she is.
