Movie director told LA airport immigration he was there to shoot a pilot

Spent the next 5 hours in interrogation :)

Director Mike Figgis spent longer at LAX airport than intended. He'd arrived in Los Angeles, along with half the acting and directing world, for what is known as 'pilot season', when the big studios try out new scripts, directors and actors in a two-week frenzy of auditions and career make-or-breaks.

When Figgis was being grilled by airport immigration, he was asked the purpose of his visit.

Unthinking and tired after a long flight, Mike replied: 'I'm here to shoot a pilot.' After five hours in an interrogation cell (yes, really), he finally made it into town.
