Hollywood funnywoman Whoopi Goldberg has made a formal request to appear in a Wes Anderson film – by handing her resume to actor Jason Schwartzman.
The 59-year-old Oscar-winning actress was speaking to Schwartzman, a regular in Anderson’s films, on US talk show “The View” when she brought out her CV, reported Huffington Post.
Goldberg was also keen to make a point to Anderson, stating that his films should feature more “folks of colour”.
“I want to do this right because you know I love all the Wes Anderson movies and that you starred in like, almost all of them – ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ and Rushmore and all of those,” Goldberg said.

“So, I noticed there’s not a lot of folks of colour, and I thought I would like to give you my resume to give to Wes Anderson and just to let him know I’m available. As you see, I’ve interned on ‘The Late Show’.”
Schwartzman was happy to take Goldberg’s undoubtedly long resume, and promised to pass it on to Anderson.
He was also full of praise for the “incredible” Goldberg.
“You’re an incredible person who has given me so many things to be excited about. Thank you for all of your work,” he said, to a huge round of applause.
