This Turkey Day happens to land on a criminally and perennially underappreciated actor's birthday: Ed Harris. Main course or side dish, first billing or second fiddle, Ed Harris is a truly gifted actor deserving of more recognition. So let's give it to him.
"I was two people. I was entertaining people in the living room and trying to find out the meaning of life in my bedroom. And kids don't get credit for having those thoughts and they do. They really do wonder about creation and so it was my way of relating to them on that level."
If Vicki hadn't insisted on rushing me to the hospital, there is a good chance I would have died.
It's official: We have definitively hit our late-summer low-point with the release of Kick-Ass 2.
Over the past few years I've planted myself right in the center of social media and shouted from the cyber rooftops, "I am the world's most self-absorbed girl with fake problems ever! And here are my ridiculously over-sensationalized and extremely personal stories."
O'Sullivan lived through a brutal childhood, emigrated to the U.S. in the early '80s, and survived the various pitfalls New York City has to offer her newcomers, particularly those of us who have to learn "the game" with all its implications from scratch, and arrive without trust fund.
Steve Carell is an immensely popular actor. Jim Carrey used to be. Steve Buscemi is an actor's actor, and Olivia Wilde is an up and coming young actress. With all this talent in the cast of one movie, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, it should be a guaranteed success. Guess what folks, it isn't.

Comedian David Steinberg is brilliant. The gifted stand-up comedian, who made over 130 appearances on 'The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson,' skillfully dissects the comedy minds of some of the most creative comedians on planet earth in his one-on-one sit down conversations on Showtime's 'Inside Comedy.'
Jenny McCarthy is entitled to her opinion and her mommy instinct, but she's not entitled to the validation and amplification that come with a job as a daily blogger for the Sun-Times. As Maria Puente writes at USA Today, "She definitely has a voice, and now she has a megaphone."
I applied to be a seat filler with hopes of learning how this highly unusual profession works. Could this be the key to unemployment? Could filling seats fill bank accounts? It turned out the answer was no because the salary is zero.
Celebrities usually have the inside track on the coolest places to go.
Today's activists, however, don't typically knock heads with plastic police shields or get hosed down by a coercive stream of water. Why put yourself in harms way when you can sit at your Ikea desk, open up your MacBook Air, and click a few electronic buttons?
It was such a gift to see and hear some of the most brilliant minds on the planet all under one roof. There are no words for the magic that happens energetically when so many high-conscious beings come together with the intention for good.
To me it was an Academy Awards of Consciousness, without the awards, without the over-the-top glitz, instead with authenticity, exemplary wisdom, crazy humor, and an outrageously creative assortment of music.
