Lukas had an fantastic response to the trash-talking and told the director to give him the job so he could get a better apartment. Gage received praise for his handling of an uncomfortable moment he endured.
Keen to play it down, and make the best of a bad situation, Lukas responds: "Listen, I'm living in a four-by-four box".
Gage posted the video to his Twitter and Instagram accounts with the note: "psa: If youre a s**t talking director make sure to mute ur s**t on zoom mtgings". "Like I'm looking at his background, and he's got his TV and you know". "Just give me the job and we'll be fine", the 25-year-old actor added. While Superstar's Molly Shannon wrote, "You handled that so well, Lukas. I am mortified." Maybe the director really was sorry (I'm sure he was), but his tone isn't exactly apologetic.More news: US election: Judge throws out Trump bid to stop Pennsylvania vote certification

"Thank for you for posting this". Wilmer Valderrama wrote, "You're a class act". "What a lousy thing for him to say. and here you are putting yourself out there for your audition. vulnerable. wanting to get the part etc".
