Skip Hollandsworth Is Ready for His Close-up, Mr. DeMille

By  |

2010 is turning out to be a very good year for Texas Monthly scribe and local charmer Skip Hollandsworth. Not only did he win a National Magazine Award in April, but his 1998 story on Marjorie Nugent is one step closer to hitting the big screens as Bernie, with such names as Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, and Richard Linklater attached to the project.

BTW, Houstonian Linklater, who co-wrote the Bernie screenplay with Wichita Falls-born Skippy, is searching for real Texans to be in the movie. Personally, I think there are great stories about Skip that would make excellent movies.
