“Three Days to Die” on Audible.com “HE DIDN’T MEAN TO OVERHEAR …but he did. HE ONLY HEARD A FEW WORDS … but he heard too much. HE RAN … but he was followed” The unabridged audio-recording of John Avery’s “Three Days to Die” is now available through audible.com and iTunes!  This is my first full-length audiobook, which I narrated and edited.  Hopefully it’s the first of many.  I’m particularly proud of the character voices that appear throughout the book.  Listen for ‘Needles’ and ‘Beeks.  They’re like Bert and Ernie by…read more

“Blood Ties” Premieres at Cannes On May 20th “Blood Ties” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.  While was stateside, there is no greater thrill than to know that halfway around the world I appeared onscreen for the first time.  In attendance were Guillaume Canet, Clive Owen, James Caan and Marion Cotillard.  I am personally as excited to see James Gray’s upcoming “The Immigrant”, which premieres this week as well, starring Marion and Joaquin Phoenix.  I had a chance to spend an afternoon on the set last year, and even then…read more

Playground LA @ the Zephyr Theatre Tonight I’ll be performing in a staged reading of a ten minute play called “Romeo and Jules” by Ron Burch.  It’s part of a monthly evening of new short plays based on a common prompt, this month’s being “STAR-CROSSED LOVERS”.  I’ll let you guess who I am. Playground is a gang of fools that started playing in San Francisco, offering an opportunity, on Monday nights, for the entire Bay Area Theatre community to get together and PLAY.  Since its inception, it has stretched into…read more

Mashterpiece Theatre: Honey-Boo-Boo Abbey What is the opposite of Downton Abbey?  Arguably the greatest show ever produced for television? My money is on TLC’s “Here Come Honey-Boo-Boo” featuring arguably the stupidest human beings ever produced by nature. My very funny friend Cecily Jenkins at Makers Studios shows us what happens when the British Jetsons meet the Redneck Flintstones in a series called “Mashterpiece Theatre: Honey-Boo-Boo Abbey”. Without further ado, I am proud to lift the curtain on the One True Dowager Countess…ME!  I come in at about the 1 minute mark…read more

The Tall Girls on KPBS I am fitfully happy and woefully sad to say goodbye to the Tall Girls.  As I sit at my desk on this noisy overcast Los Angeles morning, I have three weeks of the Dust Bowl by way of San Diego to draw from my memory like wool, spun on a dusty loom, the bounce of a ball heard faintly, powerfully, perpetually in the distance. The La Jolla Playhouse created an incredible new series that tests the stamina, creativity and will of its artists, and has…read more

DNA New Work Series @ the La Jolla Playhouse Tomorrow I begin performing THE TALL GIRLS by Meg Miroshnik at the La Jolla Playhouse, as part of their DNA New Work Series.  The O’Neil Prize winning play centers around a girls’ basketball team in Dust Bowl era America, lead by a mysterious and dedicated coach.  I play that coach.  I am very grateful for the opportunity to put up a brand new play in just two short weeks, and with an incredibly talented cast and crew to boot.  Once the…read more

Seminar @ the B Street Theatre Beginning Sunday I will be playing Martin in Theresa Rebeck’s “Seminar” at the B Street Theatre.  It is smart, sexy theatre, and as you know I would never describe myself as such without good, good reason. www.bstreettheatre.org

“Blood Ties” by Guillaume Canet and James Gray I am thrilled to announce that I’ll be back in New York from June 26th to July 8th, working on “Blood Ties”; a film directed by Guillaume Canet, starring Billy Crudup, Clive Owen and Marion Cotillard.  This is, in fact the greatest opportunity to come along in my short career, and I am approaching it with the kind of wondrous anticipation usually reserved for wars and weddings. If you would like to see me while I am in NY, click the CONTACT tab…read more

It has it’s novelty, sure.  I show up at the theater and someone in a VEST hands me a pair of free sunglasses.  There’s a box near the exit that prompts me to recycle them…but I’m not gonna.  And either are you.  We both paid $15 dollars for the experience of 3-D, and part of that experience includes the thrill of light theft.  The previews are in a ‘kind of‘ 3-D, that prompts me to loudly recycle my new favorite joke:  “3 dimensions of who gives a shit!”  A couple…read more

During the first week of March I will be ‘spreading the news’, in a performance to celebrate the completion of the ‘Richard’s Rampage’ World Tour!  Richard’s Rampage is an educational initiative brought to life by the Kevin Spacey Foundation, that coincides with Sam Mendes’s production of Richard III, starring Kevin Spacey.  The production is currently on the last leg of it’s world tour, playing at BAM in Brooklyn, New York.  The Kevin Spacey Foundation has selected one to two participants from each city of its tour, to come to New…read more
