* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When Taransky [[spoiler: is accused of the murder of Simone]], his lawyer tells him this:
-->'''Viktor's Lawyer''' Here's a psychiatrist in Ventura, well-respected, who is willing to testify under oath that you have diminished capacity...due to the trauma of your divorce, years of abject failure in the movie business and ''a bump on the head you sustained as a child.''

** Taransky mentions Meryl Streep and Madonna and incorporates elements of both actresses into Simone - which makes one wonder how Al Pacino acted with both of them in ''AngelsInAmerica'' and ''Film/DickTracy'' respectively.

When the main star of film director Viktor Taransky's latest film walks over "creative differences", Taransky is left with two options: scrap the movie altogether, or find a replacement. Unfortunately, given Taransky's plummeting career and the esoteric nature of the film itself there are no actresses who are willing to take the part.

When the main star of film director Viktor Taransky's Taransky (Pacino)'s latest film walks over "creative differences", Taransky is left with two options: scrap the movie altogether, or find a replacement. Unfortunately, given Taransky's plummeting career and the esoteric nature of the film itself there are no actresses who are willing to take the part.



There is one last, desperate thing he could try: an acquaintance left him a computer program on a disk, and he can use that program to [[VirtualCelebrity digitally create a replacement]]. It works: the film is a hit, and the "actress" is a runaway success, so Taransky markets her as a real person - giving webcam and phone interviews, "casting" her in his later films, and even performing a music concert as her, but things start to get out of hand. A pair of journalists who are trying to get a lead on the famously reclusive "Simone" are starting to suspect something is wrong, and Taransky himself is beginning to feel overshadowed by his creation.

Added DiffLines:

* RealAwardFictionalCharacter: Doubly fictional when Simone wins Best Actress. To cover up her lack of attendance and maintain TheMasquerade Taransky puts together a clip of her accepting it.

Added DiffLines:

* VanityProject: Taransky eventually gets fed up at Simone's runaway success eclipsing his. So he fakes them having a split over artistic differences, and makes a vanity project for her. It was ''meant'' to [[InvokedTrope invoke this trope]] and discredit her, but her movie "I AM PIG" ended up getting critical acclaim in a classic SpringtimeForHitler scenario.
