The Bronco.  The Glove.  The Juice.

October 3rd, 2015 marked twenty years since the world tuned in to watch O.J. Simpson receive his “not guilty” verdict.  The drama surrounding the trial was intoxicating with twists and turns which shocked the courtroom on a daily basis.  But, despite being a memorable courtroom drama, O.J.’s trial shed a light once again on race, police brutality and what it means to have a fair ...

You know that indescribable quality that defines a “star”?  Sometimes it is labeled as charisma or sex appeal and other times you just can’t put your finger why someone is extraordinary.  Well, if you spend any amount of time with Deborah S. Craig you’ll get a sense of what I am talking about plus you’ll probably laugh your ass off. “I started acting because people ...

Patty McCormack

A stint of much needed rain was falling outside The Whitefire Theatre when a petite woman ducked inside the lobby.  She was wearing a bright pink shirt under her coat that  popped her piercing blue eyes.  The same blue eyes that helped her win the role as Rhoda Penmark in the 1956 classic film, The Bad Seed.  As she threw her bags down on the ...

Together, this triumvirate makes up the Artistic Directorship at The Antaeus Company in North Hollywood, one of the most established (and sexy) companies in town. In the Troika’s three years leading the company, ...

Larisa Oleynik

I think most of us look at child actors with either a sense of compassion for somehow being stripped of their precious childhood or they are a candidate for ostracism for being stupid.  But in fact, there are a breed of child actors that come out of the gauntlet pretty damn cool and feel grateful to have such a great job.  Larisa Oleynik is definitely ...

Tim Cummings

Tim Cummings should be neck deep in pilot scripts and big job offers.  He should be talking to his agent everyday saying things like “I’ll shoot that film if I can still do that play with Annette.”  He should have a hit cable series and have his choice at little heartfelt dramas he shoots on his hiatus which screen in Park City.  Hell, Mr. Cummings ...

Veronica Brady

Veronica Brady is relaxed.  Or so it seems.  “We found another great actor,” Brady says as she falls into an tattered-old couch backstage at The Malibu Playhouse.  Brady, who is in rehearsal for the West Coast premiere of Billy Roche’s Belfry out in Malibu, has a warm relaxed confidence that you can tell after a minute or two is a refined skill she’s developed in ...

Neel Keller

Neel Keller talks fast and you can tell he’s thinking even faster.  After sitting down with him for a little over an hour I feel like I learned more about the art of storytelling than any master class I have ever taken.  Every other line Keller spouts is a gem about the art, about the craft, about what it takes to create magic in the ...
