The tales of a freelancer based in New York. Told from a first hand perspective, deep in the trenches of current events and celebrity red carpets. The sole purpose of the site is to bring some laughter, a little payback and/or a smile to its readers and feed my urge.
Let us preface our post by stating that yes, like many others, we too were a one time huge fan of Keanu Reeves. Not the best actor – true, but he was very pretty (in his youth) and he had an undeniable quality on screen. No Daniel Day Lewis, for sure, but what he did do on screen, he was able to do it well.
The years have past on and his roles, like his looks, have floundered. Flop after flop – The Day The Earth Stood Still anyone?
But when we heard of his comeback attempt with the new film “Daughter of God,” currently on-location in NYC, well, we couldn’t resist the thought of paying the set a short visit and snap a few frames. Read the rest of this entry »
Sienna Miller wowed the crowd at the “American Sniper” NYC premiere clad in an off-white Spring 2015 Balenciaga cocktail number.

Tim Burton directs OSCAR winner Christoph Waltz, Kristen Ritter and multi-OSCAR nominee Amy Adams in the bio-pic “Big Eyes,” based on the life of artist Magaret Keane. So of it was only befitting that the film be brought to MoMA for its NYC presentation. Read the rest of this entry »

It stars David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Domingo Colman, Tom Wilkinson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Tim Roth, Common and Harpo Films’ Oprah Winfrey. Read the rest of this entry »
On a rainy, cold, winter afternoon we ventured out to catch Josh Lucas and Debra Messing on the Harlem set of their NBC dra-medy “The Mysteries of Laura.” We had gotten word that the production was parked by Columbia University and, although the weather was less than ideal, we were sure that it would be a less then problematic venture given the fact that we were all alone braving inclement weather dutifully waiting on the duo to finish their mid-day break.
At least this was our theory…
We absolutely love Debs – last caught her at the Penguins of Madagascar Bryant Park premiere – and think her on screen hubby and commanding officer Josh is a total dreamboat with piercing eyes and a panty dropper twang. A two for one tag team – as it were… Read the rest of this entry »
The wondrous Meryl Streep brought her witchcraft to NYC a few days ago for the world premiere of Rob Marshall’s big screen adaptation of the famed Broadway musical “Into The Woods.” And she brought a few friends along… Emily Blunt on the arm of John Krasinski, Anna Kendrick, Erich Bergen, Tracie Ullman, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone and hottie Billy Magnussen – to name a few.

“The Gambler” is Mark Wahlberg’s latest big screen endeavor. The drama is reportedly so intense it will take the one-time Bostonian bad boy rapper into the OSCAR contention mix. Walhberg shares the screen with a bevy of talent in the production depicting a risk-taking professor who puts his life down as collateral for a loan.
It costars Brie Larson, Anthony Kelley as well as John Goodman and Jessica Lange – who were both absent for the East coast presentation. Read the rest of this entry »
The man, the myth, the legendary beauty that is Christian Bale – and his hottie costars Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Ben Mendelsohn and John Turturro – brought his new Ridley Scott epic retelling of Moses “Exodus: Gods and Kings” to the Brooklyn Museum for a special presentation on Sunday night.
We’d go further than crossing the Manhattan Bridge for the likes of the testosterone laden trio that is Bale, Edgerton and Paul. That’s just a no brainer. Read the rest of this entry »
Robert James-Collier joined Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Phyllis Logan and Lesley Nicol for the NY season five “Downton Abbey” photocall, held at the Millenium Hotel, last night, much to the glee of the gathered press line. Read the rest of this entry »
Quvenzhane Wallis joined her castmates Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, Dorian Missick, Rose Byrne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and hottie Bobby Cannavale, along with producer Will Smith and Sandy the Dog, for the world premiere of the reboot of that ole classic rags-to-riches story “Annie,” in New York City yesterday morning into mid-afternoon.
No kidding, y’all!
The step-and-repeat ran a total of 4 hours long for the gathered press line which boasted a call time of 11:00 AM and didn’t wrap until 3:00 PM – and there folks missing. There also included a stand-offish Diaz in a non-stopping drive-by and, most notably, Jay Z and wifey Beyonce skipping the carpet all together to the moans-and-groans of a tent full of photogs.
