Sonny Miller's Lesson for Us All: 'Nature Dictates'
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
The white of Sonny Miller's right eye was red. Fire engine red. He cocked his head to the side all the time, in fact, his shoulders leaned also to the right, I think. Maybe it was from carrying that box around. That box that made my movie. Six years ago, I called him. "I've written a movie, it takes place in the water. I hear you're the guy. Can I send it to you?" He called me a few weeks later. "Yeah, I like it, I like it. It really captures what it's like, right?" I told him I didn't have any money, but I was working on it, and that if I ever got the money the question I have is: How do you make an indie in the ocean? "Yeah, yeah, we can do it." He talked about formats and boogie boards and Go Pros and jet skis. "At the end of the day, though, nature dictates." He repeated that phrase again and again last summer: "Nature dictates." I'd say, "I know Sonny, I know, but I've got to get this. If I don't get her saying the line over her right shoulder before the wave comes ...

Huffington Post - almost 2 years
'Tis the season for Easter egg hunts, your Sunday best and of course, bunnies! If you're expecting this Spring and need a baby name, consider looking to famous rabbits for inspiration. Here are 12 ideas, ranging from the classic to the comical. Peter We have to start with Peter, as this is the name associated with not one but two iconic bunnies: Peter Rabbit and Peter Cottontail. And Peter feels like a classic ready to hop back into higher popularity, with its biblical background, many hero namesakes, and warm, pleasant sound. Benjamin Another Beatrix Potter bunny is Benjamin B, a cousin of Peter’s. Benjamin, the consistently popular Old Testament appellation, is currently the 15th most chosen baby name in the US, with notable namesakes ranging from Benjamin Franklin to Benjamin Affleck. Buster Buster Baxter is the happy, creative, anthropomorphic white-rabbit third -grader best friend in the book-based PBS Kids "Arthur" TV show. But Buster for a baby? Well, ...

'Sherlock' Star Benedict Cumberbatch Talks CBS' 'Elementary,' The Other Sherlock Show
Huffington Post - about 3 years
"Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch spoke about all things Holmes at PBS' Television Critics Association panel, including that other Sherlock Holmes TV series, "Elementary" on CBS. Entertainment Weekly reports that Cumberbatch spoke about how he starred with "Elementary" star Jonny Lee Miller in a stage adaptation of "Frankenstein" in London, and how he tries to catch Miller's version of Sherlock when he can. “I’ve seen him on one plane, just by happenstance, since we both started on our separate journeys with it,” said Cumberbatch. “So we haven’t had a proper sit down about it. But, you know, we adore each other. We’re in contact every now and again, but the last thing we want to do is talk shop. So I see as much of his as I can, and I think he sees all three of ours at a time. And we’re all fans of one another." Cumberbatch also addressed the nonexistent rivalry between the two actors playing the same detective, "No matter what bulls--t the press has tried to whip up in the past ...

The Thursday Playlist: Star Vehicles for Fox, Hayes and Williams
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Comebacks are big news this fall - James Spader enjoyed one on Monday with the splashy premiere of NBC's The Blacklist - and nowhere is this more true than on Thursdays, with three high-profile comedy vehicles for beloved stars from sitcoms past. [...] while conventional wisdom has long suggested that it's easier to create new stars on TV - Sleepy Hollow's Tom Mison, anyone? - than to build new shows around old favorites, what really matters is giving them material that lives up to the billing. Fox's show (premiering with back-to-back episodes at 9/8c and its regular time period of 9:30/8:30c) manages the neat trick of both affirming and deflating Michael J. Fox's "world's most beloved man" image, as a celebrity (a New York City TV anchor returning to the spotlight) who's deemed a hero as he deals with his Parkinson's disability, but is even more adept at acting the fool within his own bustling and exasperated family. Landing this legendary live wire was a coup for CBS, and while ...

I read and re-read the book and I pretended to be Scottish all the time I was in Glasgow, hanging around with Scots, picking up bits and pieces on the street and in bars. Everyone's been very encouraging and Danny thinks that I've got it about right. Of course, the others are from all over Scotland and have different accents themselves, so I've tried to just pick up a general, composite accent."
