Lunch with a Legend: Bruce Dern
Huffington Post - about 3 years
After a best actor award at this year's Cannes Film Festival, there's no stopping Bruce Dern. As Woody in Alexander Payne's masterpiece "Nebraska," featured in Toronto, New York, and the Hamptons Film Festivals, he's a doddering but endearing old fool who takes seriously one of those announcements that he's a sweepstakes winner, and convinces his son to drive him from Billings to Omaha to pick up his millions. With old school modesty, Dern says that the obstacle to making this film which took a long time--he received the script 10 years ago this week--was not about casting him, a quasi-bankable character actor in the lead role, but that it's shot in black and white. At lunch at Il Gattopardo this week, he applauded Paramount for letting Payne make his film the way he wanted to make it. And now, there's no question that Dern will join a line-up that includes Robert Redford for "All is Lost," contenders for the Best Actor Oscar. A fount of film history, with stories galore, Dern will te ...

GalTime: Death of the Neighborhood Sperm Donor?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
How one celebrity's legal battle could change how and where women shop for sperm in California. By Stacy Feinberg for GalTime.com Actor Jason Patric is a celebrity who isn't often in the press. It surprised me to see him all over the news recently, giving interviews about his custody battle with a former girlfriend -- and about a new law that would help people like him get the parental rights they think they deserve. My husband and I were watching a TV interview with Mr. Patric, showing photos and videos of himself with his biological child. He said his ex-girlfriend was "keeping his son from him" and that new legislation could possibly help him gain parental rights -- something he said he wants desperately. Frankly, the interview was rife with inconsistencies. As a family lawyer, I knew something important was missing from the conversation and decided to do some research. Here's what I found: Patric sued his former girlfriend, Danielle Schreiber, seeking parental ...

Jason Patric Inspires Controversial Legislation Over Sperm Donor Parental Rights
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
Actor Jason Patric says he is a father. His former girlfriend says he was just a sperm donor. Now, the Hollywood child custody dispute has stirred a controversial discussion in the California legislature about the rights of sperm donors and men who provide sperm in artificial insemination.

He was a part of his son's life for more than two years. But both Patric and Shreiber said that now -- following their break up after getting romantic again -- the actor hasn't seen his 3-year-old son, Gus, in months. Read More... More on Video

Joshua John Miller: My Brother's Struggle For Fathers' Rights
Huffington Post - over 3 years
If you're gay, read this. If you're straight, read this. There's a war going on in California that affects any of us that plan to be parents one day-- especially those of us (gay or straight) who may end up using alternative methods of conception. As a gay man who's trying to start a family with my partner, we're lucky to live in a state that's historically been progressive in regards to non-traditional families-- but as in the case of my brother Jason Patric, there are still ways, no matter what your orientation, to fall through the cracks-- unless, that is, he can have his day in court to demand partial custody of the son he has spent the past three year co-raising. And to have that, we need help. On a personal note: I know the challenges of being raised by a single parent-- for much of my childhood, I wished that I could have had my own father be a part of the fabric of my growing up. Many years after my father's death, I was able to forge a friendship with my half-b ...
