Kumba is what you think about when you see Clint Eastwood's movie version of Jersey Boys. Everyone but Bob Gaudio (Erich Bergen) who talks about T.S. Eliot's "objective correlative" is from the neighborhood and that's the problem

Joseph Russo is an actor portraying an actor. He has a big presence on screen in Jersey Boys. Even when he's just standing in the background, he's in character, fiddling with his jaw or doing something that makes you take notice.

Some people believe that hindsight is 20/20. I think it's warped by sentimentality, wishful thinking, and rose-colored glasses.
