My newest piece on Michelle Monaghan, co-star of the amazing anthology series on HBO, "True Detective." Monaghan, a Midwestern native, plays Maggie Hart with a balance of mama bear fortitude and raw hurt. Please read and share.
Friends: I did not write this, but it's worth sharing far and wide. So many gems in here, the best of which is the fact the 27-year-old man used his mother's credit card to pay for the fare. Oh, humans.
Watch this video about Sharif created by the lovely Kelsey Anderson. It pairs perfectly with my story about his tenure as Michael Gallant on "ER" and Agent Clinton Jones on "White Collar," which ends its fifth season tonight with a HUGE cliffhanger: http://bit.ly/1jOa6iV
My interview with the lovely Jane Lynch will be in tomorrow's Chicago Tribune. I love this show, reminds me of the glory days of "Hollywood Squares." Watch full episodes on nbc.com and make sure to set your DVR on Monday.
Check out my profile of Chloe Bennet, one of the stars of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” A Chicago-native with six brothers, Bennet moved to China when she was 15 to become a pop star (she indeed became a pop star). She auditioned six times for the role of hacker Skye, a role she said she connected with immediately. Skye acts as a sort of surrogate for the audience on the show, bringing questions and skepticism to scenes. She is so nice, giving and mature – you would never believe she is only 21! Please read and share.
My newest story on the lovely Rachel Brosnahan, who plays Rachel Posner on Netflix’s “House of Cards.” At just 23, she has already graced the big screen, the boob tube and the boards at Steppenwolf. She is mature, lovely and giving person — and if you’ve seen Season Two of “HOC,” I don’t need to tell you that she’s a pretty darn good actress.
Check out my newest story on Sharif Atkins, who you know as Dr. Michael Gallant on “ER” or Agent Clinton Jones on “White Collar.” Atkins, a Northwestern grad, is an all around great guy and was joy to chat with. Tonight’s “White Collar” finale is a jaw-dropper, definitely something not to be missed. Please read and share! There is a video coming soon, too.
Calling all Psych-Os! Read my profile of Kirsten Nelson, who plays Chief Vick on USA’s popular dramedy, “Psych.” A Chicago native and Northwestern alumna, Nelson hit the highest note on Sunday night’s long-awaited musical episode. The popular cop comedy returns with Season Eight on Jan. 8. Did you watch the musical episode? What did you think?
My newest story on Lili Taylor, who you may know as Jojo in "Mystic Pizza," and her new role on Fox's “Almost Human.” She is a wonderful giving person and she brings a needed sense of humanity to an ultra-futuristic show. Please read and share! As always, use firstname.lastname@example.org and Tribune435 if you have trouble accessing the story.
