Detective

  In my actor/writer/producer cycle, 2016 has been a writing year. But not all that long ago, I was asked to come in and read for a Shakespeare play.  I’ve had a monologue from Othello in my utility belt for years; this was the first time as a professional someone asked to see it. Earned […]

‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’

The first thing that struck me as I watched this film is how this man’s life, this man’s real life, would be completely unbelievable if presented as a fictional character.  This adaptation of his autobiography is epic when presenting the African continent, and claustrophobic when showing his Mandela’s decades in prison.  It’s as solid as a […]

‘Glory’

You guys can thank W. Kamau Bell for today’s post… On the last episode of the ‘Denzel Washington is the Greatest Actor Ever’ podcast, they finally got around to ‘Glory.’  No one really argues about this film. I had to go back and look up the clip below though.  I remember the first time I […]

‘Gotham’

  So here’s the disclaimer, since I haven’t said this publicly in a couple years: whatever DC and/or Warner Brothers do now, I’m OK with it.  The genius Christopher Nolan has already told my story better than I could have possibly imagined.  Now, if I see something that I consider a Schumachery of my franchise, […]

‘H.I.G.H.’

  My friends over at Dangerbang Productions put out a new skit this weekend, and I thought I’d share it today. Wait a minute…is that? No, can’t be?  Can it?  It sounds like… Hm. Well, all I know, is WHOEVER that is doing the narration… He sounds really handsome…  

‘Christian Bale’ Opens This Weekend!

We […]

‘Christian Bale – the Musical!’

  So what’s coming up next? Well, we’re in rehearsal for another play.  From the group who brought you ‘Natalie Portman’…, we start next year bringing you ‘Christian Bale – the Musical’.  Bad news, this time I’m not Samuel L. Jackson.  Good news, I’m another narrator.  Perhaps, the best known narrator.  His voice, known by […]
