Robin Williams | The Final Cut In Vancouver

Whenever someone has asked me, who my favorite celebrity, that I have worked with, is? My answer is always the same, Robin Williams! In 2004 I had the honor of working with Robin on a little known movie called The Final Cut. The Final Cut was a darker movie than his usual roles.

I was a production assistant on that film so I was lucky enough to spend a little time just hanging out and chatting with the crew and the actors. Robin was an amazing guy. He treated everyone with respect, from the guy who picked up the garbage/cig butts on set to his fellow actors and everyone in between. I brought my son to the set to meet him one day and he recognized his voice as the Genie from Aladdin Continue reading

Philip Seymour Hoffman: An Epitaph and a half. 1967-2014

Philip-Seymour-Hoffman_lAs some of you may know, if you have read a few of my stories, I sometimes like to sound off when certain entertainers pass from this life, I am not sure why? My goal of course is to write about stunts, film, acting, and that sort of thing. And though, that is important to me for some reason it is also important to record the milestone, when a great talent passes from this life. I guess this due to my belief that if one is remembered, and not, just as a passing thought but, you know, to be made part of the world through thoughts. When you do this you make that person a part of life again and therefore they aren’t dead and gone forever. When I heard of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s passing I have to admit I was taken aback. I was also moved to write this as a farewell note to him. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000450/ Continue reading

Farewell To Cory Monteith 1982-2013

Cory MonteithMany at this time are speaking out regarding the passing of Cory Monteith, star of tv series “Glee.” As you can go anywhere to find out all the facts and details of how he died and why, from any of the news outlets out there. I would rather share with you just a few words to Cory and his family. I don’t want to speak of his sudden and tragic passing, since I doubt that is what he would have wanted. It has happened and I do not see the point of delving into his personal life to find out how, that is for his family to know if they so decide. We should focus on his life and the legacy he left, don’t you think he would have wanted it that way? Media could be altruistic instead of trying to analyze this story to bits. I for one refuse to jump on that bandwagon! So here are my two cents about Cory…..hope it does him any kind of justice? Continue reading
