A Hollywood player is only as powerful as the calls he has to return. Fittingly, the messages for teen-quake godfather Kevin Williamson (No. 31) run the gamut from personal (Mom) to professional (the equally important Bob Weinstein, whose demands, which include the scripter’s next three movies, have become a running office gag). Herewith, a peek inside Williamson’s telephonic in box.
