Atten-hut!!!

Before Morgan Freeman became a narrator extraordinaire/played God/told all of America that they were going to get hit by a comet in Deep Impact, he served in the Air Force!

As we wish everyone currently serving in the armed forces and those who have served in the past a very happy Veterans Day, we'd like to take a moment to honor those celebrities who have also worn a uniform off-screen!

To all our military personnel past and present, we thank you for your service!

Perez Reviews: The Best Man on Broadway

the-best-man.jpg

We sat through Gore Vidal's The Best Man on Friday and it was a bit of an arduous affair. Not only did the show seem very long - complete with two intermissions - but there were some serious issues with the play itself and a few of the performances.

Our biggest gripe with the show was with the writing. There was no one we were rooting for. The show lacked a hero! One contender was a fool and the other was a too! Either one could have won or lost, and we would have been apathetic either way.

It was nice to see, though, how relevant politically the show still is 50 plus years later.

Another one of the major flaws of this theatergoing experience for us is that John Larroquette, who played one of the two contenders, lacked the gravitas to pull off that role. We thoroughly enjoyed him when we saw him in How To Succeed, but in The Best Man Laroquette floundered. He "acted" well enough, but he failed to develop a fully fleshed character. It was him up there on that stage.

Cybill Shepard was like a ghost. Or beige. Take your pic.

And Elizabeth Ashley should use a head mic, as she did not amplify enough with just her voice.

John Stamos and Kristin Davis, on the other hand, were surprisingly good. And the definitely created characters they were portraying.

But the real revelation of this production is James Earl Jones, whose portrayal of the President was so nuanced and vibrant. He literally lit up the stage whenever he appeared. Too bad they killed the most likeable character in the show!

These days, Kevin Costner is more untouchable than Eliot Ness!

The veteran actor just scored a juicy role in the upcoming Jack Ryan prequel directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Chris Pine as our heroic young spy!

Details are sparse, but Costner's character is an apparent mentor figure akin to Darth Vader's James Earl Jones' Admiral Greer in the three '90s adaptations of those fabulous Tom Clancy novels!

Literary Icon Gore Vidal Has Passed Away

Gore Vidal passes away

Renowned author, screenwriter, playwright, essayist and political activist Gore Vidal has passed away after complications of pneumonia.

In 86 years of life, he wrote over a dozen screenplays, eight plays and 25 novels. He famously created controversy in 1948 with his third book, The City and the Pillar, which was one of the first novels in American literature to feature unambiguous homosexuality.

Vidal fearlessly tackled the taboo again in 1968 when

Christian Borle Takes Home The Tony For Best Performance By An Actor In A Featured Role In A Play!

2012-tony-awards-best-performance-by-an-actor-in-a-leading-role-in-a-play

Our beloved Andrew Garfield unfortunately didn't get the Tony Awards win for Best Performance By An Actor In A Featured Role In A Play, but instead, it was a recipient who was just as worthy!

That's right, SMASH's Christian Borle took home the win for his work in Peter and the Starcatcher, beating out Michael Cumpsty, Tom Edden, and Jeremy Shamos!

Aww! Such a sweetheart!

Easily one of the nicest speeches of the evening, and so cute to see his mom and sister looking on from audience, clearly so very proud!
