Shirley and Bill, unlikely friends. Maybe they’re reunited now, on the other side.
Just heard the heartbreaking news that Philip Seymour Hoffman has died. One of the truly exceptional actors of my lifetime. I saw him in person once, in the audience of a Shakespeare in the Park performance of Brecht’s “Mother Courage”. Hard to pick a favorite from his varied performances. “The Master” stands out for me. “State and Main” is a favorite. A terrible loss for both the stage and screen.
When I was a teenager, this showbiz couple was my grunge fairytale. They were both so hot, and so didn’t-give-a-fuck. I love when Johnny, obviously annoyed by the ditzy host, announces that he’s going to marry Prince Albert.
The one and only.
As far as I’m concerned, it’s the Lady Rose show from here on.
