I think it’s an actor’s responsibility to change every time. Not only for himself and the people he’s working with, but for the audience. If you just go out and deliver the same dish every time… it’s meat loaf again… you’d get bored. I’d get bored. — Johnny Depp This will not come as a […]

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. –Jonathan Swift I have an odd quirk.  Actually, it’s more of a habit than a true quirk.  When I go into a place of business, one of the first things I do is look to see what kind of phone system they have.  While […]
