  For Your Consideration
2006 - director, Christopher Guest
  During the filming of a low-budget Hollywood melodrama, Home For Purim', internet rumours spark a spiral of Oscar buzz around the production. This prompts studied nonchalance from the cast and enthusiastic interference from the studio executives.

Ricky plays Martin Gibb, one of the interfering executives, who is keen to tone down the essential Jewishness of film's script and title in particular.

Starring Catherine O'Hara, Harry Shearer and Christopher Guest
