Perez Reviews: American Hero

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesJerry O'ConnellPerez ReviewsAri Graynor

american hero

Every ten years or so comes a movie or a play that attempts to illustrate what life is truly like today.

Thankfully, American Hero, currently playing at 2econd Stage Theater Uptown, does it very very well!

Like a more current and funnier American Beauty, the show is filled with characters who have crushed dreams, failed relationships and so much more!

Whereas a few years ago a similar play may have been darker and more cynical, American Hero is filled with moments of hope and almost non-stop laughter.

Telling the equally bizarre and somehow all-too-realistic tale of three workers at a fancy sandwich shop, playwright Bess Wohl masterfully mines the everyday and mundane into comedic brilliance.

Who knew making a sandwich could be so funny???

The show is about the big and the small. The good and the bad. Working together as a team and how sometimes we get the best of ourselves and each other.

A lot to explore in just 90 minutes with no intermission! A feat executed under the direction of Leigh Silverman.

Thankfully this show has a great cast - all who do a wonderful job. They include Jerry O'Connell, Daoud Heidami and Erin Wilhelmi.

AND Ari Graynor delivers an inspired and revelatory performance as a loose mother who is down on her luck and even more down on herself.

Sitting in that audience we were IN AWE of her comedic timing. Her complete immersion in this character. The way she was able to be big and ballsy yet also intimate and authentic.

She was so invested in every moment! It was a pleasure and a privilege to get to watch her do this part.

Ari Graynor is a superstar! We can't wait until the rest of the world finds out!!!

Southern California had some really chilly temps last month, but Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn were still keeping fit with their family at a park in Calabasas.

The doting daddy stopped to take a pic of his lovely ladies, including four-year-old daughters Dolly and Charlie!

We can already tell they’ve got their momma’s model attitude! Just look at those smizes!

And how perezcious are those three pups?! They’re almost as big as the girls!

Also, in case you're wondering, Jerry was the man behind the camera! Excellent photog skillz, right?!

Hopefully next time the weather is a bit warmer for this fam, but then again, they’re so cute all bundled up!

Loves it!

jerry oconnell shia labeouf spoof funny or die im sorry too

Remember the other day when we told you famed actor Jerry O'Connell was #SorryToo?

Well, the Stand By Me star who slayed us with his silly satirizing of Shia LaBeouf didn't stop at creating a parody performance art exhibit!

He actually hid secret cameras in his "art" installment and then edited together a fabulously funny montage of the visitor's reactions!

Ch-ch-check out the Funny Or Die video…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Justin Theroux Secretly Meets Up With Will Arnett Behind Jennifer Aniston's Back?!

justin theroux will arnett

You know what they always say, when the wifey's away, the hubbiez come out and play!

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux may be engaged to be married, but that doesn't mean the actor dotes on his future wifey every hour on the hour!

In fact, when Jen goes down for sleepy time, Justin apparently sits himself in front of his TV, puts on his head set and meets up with Will Arnett, Jason Sudeikis, and Jerry O'Connell for some secret XBox One game time!

Did you think we were going to say something else?! Get your mind out of the gutter! LOLz!

A source spilled of their virtual late night ups:

jerry oconnells girls are karate masters

Say hi-ya to these two cuties!

Jerry O'Connell's two girls Dolly and Charlie were spotted having a grand old time at karate class this past Tuesday.

Rebecca Romijn's two little ladies were spotted getting their kicks and chops on in Calabasas, California, and they were looking FIERCE!

And by fierce - we mean totally cute!

We hope these two continue their studies until they get all the way to the black belt!

Then they can protect their parents instead of it being the other way around!!

Lolz!
