On the Big Screen

The Boy's first film debuts on the big screen tonight. The movie, an HIV/AIDS awareness saga, heterosexual-style, is funded by Project Pericles, a nonprofit organization "that encourages and facilitates commitments by colleges and universities to include education for social responsibility and participatory citizenship as an essential part of their educational programs, in the classroom, on the campus, and in the community." Whew. That's a mouthful.

He sent us a link to the movie trailer a few weeks ago. Through the years we've seen him perform a wide variety of stage roles, from the besotted Lysander in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" to the saavy Pauper in "The Prince and the Pauper" to the racist minister in "The Foreigner" to Jesus in "Godspell." But our Golden Boy plays an abusive womanizer in this flick. I guess that's why they call it acting.

Before an actor takes the stage it is common to wish them luck by saying, "Break a leg!" Is there a similar wellwish for a movie premiere?

I think I'll go with, "Don't trip on the red carpet, son!"
Have fun, baby.

Suzanne, that's great about The Boy. Congrats to him (and you.)

Isn't it odd to your your *boy* in roles so foreign to his nature/ The first time I saw my mild mannered, respectful young fella play some crazed, maniacal character, it was a bit un-settling. But I new he was having a blast---so I settled in and *enjoyed* the show.

The *applause* light is ON.

Amazing! There are actually a few naive types out there that still use zodiac signs in reference to themselves as if this was relevant information. I thought the 60's were over.

"Don't trip on the red carpet" is a good one. How about, "When you're big and famous please don't get all weird like Michael and Tom"?
