Mika Boorem (Riding In Cars With Boys, Blue Crush, Hearts In Atlantis) first found success in Hollywood as a child actor. Having since transitioned into writing, producing and directing, Hollywood.Con marks her feature directorial debut, and it is now available for viewing via Amazon Prime. A fun-packed adventure-comedy in the tradition of Romancing The Stone and Jewel Of The Nile, Hollywood.Con tells the story of an aspiring actor (played by Boorem) who accidentally steals the identity of a big time producer (played by Paige Howard) and is then hurled into Hollywood’s next big Mayan feature film.

Without giving too much away, Hollywood.Con also features the likes of Tom Arnold, Devin Ratray, Cody Kasch, Brian Krause, Brittany Underwood, Preston Acuff, Marco De Nino, Christopher T. Wood, Herbert Russell, Jackie Pucc, and Saheed Rahmani. The film itself was co-written by Boorem and writer/producer Benjamin Boorem. Its trailer is embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

On May 26, 2021, I had the pleasure of speaking with Mika Boorem via Zoom, as embedded below.
