New Q & A - Actors who should be more famous and more...

"For the life of me I will never understand why Audra McDonald isn't bigger outside of Broadway." - Brian

"I will add to that list Irfhan Khan; he gets roles steadily, but in my mind he should be a household name." -Rebecca

"I'll also echo that Rosemarie DeWitt is one of the most talented working actresses, full stop. There is no other Best Supporting Actress of 2008." - Hayden

And please to enjoy the Venice Film Festival Lineup. They're sharing some titles with TIFF like Good Kill, The Humbling, 99 Homes, and Red Amnesia. But ther opening night film Birdman is all theirs. Feel the envy. I'd do a whole post as with TIFF but I'm not going to Venice *sniffle* whereas I might be a TIFF and also as you read this I am fulfilling my obligations as a citizen via Jury Dutyzzz. No, for real. Feel for me as I sit in the rooms waiting for my name to be called or not.

Nathaniel, look at it as your chance to play Henry Fonda to another 11 angry men!

I feel like Project Runway lost its mojo when it left Bravo for Lifetime... sigh.
Now they just recycle the same tired challenges over and over... I remember when this show used to feel so fresh and exciting

The article on Nelsan Ellis raises a fascinating issue. But in the end, it really worked out well for him. Now he gets to make out with Nathan Parsons. Lucky biatch.

It was interesting to read the Ellis article. I mean, Luke Grimes (whom I will avoid in the future), signs on to a show with a reputation for excess and never playing by any rules, agrees to be a character who ends up in a gay relationship and then after the fact backs out? I thought Will Smith owned that particular stunt and it was over and done with? Grimes has a lot of work in the can, but will the fallout from this put an end to the momentum? I mean, I thought it had become de rigueur for everyone to play gay at least once now. Did he really think he was a big enough star to get away with refusing to play the part the way he was expected too?

FYI, Ryan Gosling's already in the Grévin wax museum in Montréal, so Madame Tussaud's isn't doing anything avant-guard....
