Backstage – 8 Things You Should Know About Love ( And How to Play It), by Clay Banks
When you think about love, several things might come to mind. Falling in love. The feeling of love. Saying or being told, “I love you.” While all that may seem normal, you might find it interesting to know that there are many unique and very specific types of love that all express themselves quite differently.Unfortunately, far too many people will go through life not really knowing much about these different loves. In my opinion, not understanding them can very well be the very reason why relationships, more often than not, are so incredibly challenging—and even fail.
Unfortunately, far too many people will go through life not really knowing much about these different loves. In my opinion, not understanding them can very well be the very reason why relationships, more often than not, are so incredibly challenging—and even fail.
Not being clear on your emotional expression can be quite detrimental to both you as a human being with successful relationships and also as an actor striving for a successful career!
Think about it: actors communicate words, actions, and emotions. And just as important as knowing the correct emotions to communicate during scene work, if you’re not communicating the correct expression of love, your communications and relationships with your fellow actors can easily be weakened or even worse, misrepresented.
To help bring a little more clarity to all of this, I’m going to consult with the ancient Greeks who seemed to have had no problem at all defining the multiple kinds of love. Besides, they’re the ones who gave us acting and theater in the first place!

The Hollywood Reporter – Josh Brolin to Play Cable in ‘Deadpool 2’ by Borys Kit
Here comes the Cable guy.
Josh Brolin has nabbed the hotly contested role of Cable opposite Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The production has been on the warpath to find the right actor for the role for months, with Michael Shannon almost nabbing the role and Stranger Things star David Harbour on the shortlist. (There were even rumors of conversations with Russell Crowe and Brad Pitt.)
In the end, Brolin emerged as a surprise contender, notching his second Marvel Comics character in the process; the actor plays the villain Thanos in the Marvel Studios movies. Sources say Brolin’s deal is for four movies.
David Leitch is directing the sequel to Fox’s surprise blockbuster, with the Twentieth Century Fox movie heading toward a June production start in Vancouver.
Reynolds is reprising his role as the wisecracking mercenary, with the story expanding to include other characters from Deadpool’s corner of Marvel’s X-Men universe.
Atlanta breakout Zazie Beetz has already been cast as the super-powered merc named Domino. Read Entire Artice Here
Variety – Film Review: ‘ Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary’ by Owen Gleiberman
The genius of John Coltrane comes to life in an elegantly crafted documentary that can hook jazz novices as well as connoisseurs.
Midway through “Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary,” John Scheinfeld’s elegantly crafted and illuminating portrait of the singular jazz legend, John Densmore, of the Doors, talks about “Kind of Blue,” the touchstone 1959 Miles Davis album on which Coltrane was a pivotal player. Densmore calls it an album that transcends categories, one that even people who don’t “get” jazz can respond to. And he’s right. But let’s be honest: Even today, the people who feel like they don’t get jazz vastly outnumber those who do. “Chasing Trane” is a film that might have been made for them. Not because it’s “Coltrane for Dummies” — its grasp of Coltrane’s genius is direct and organic — but because it builds what John Coltrane did from the ground up, leading us through the mystery of his lyric celestial saxophone wail, and how it emerged from the complex person he was.
