    Spielberg observed the spot-on coaching of this kid, asked him to read for the part, and he got it. A big break!

    After that he had a few parts but when they dried up, he went to film school to do technical work. Getting the acting bug again, he signed with an agent and the Everything film was the first part offered to him. He choked up when thanking Spielberg for his first big break at a recent awards event.
    I might have seen the same interview, and I had the same thoughts. What a cool story! And he made a decision to go back to acting late in life, and look what happened!! It's almost like his life played out the multiverse scenario in the movie he made!! And he seems like such a nice guy..

    Now that EEAAO has won 7 Oscars, I'm definitely going to revisit it. Maybe start the movie earlier in the day.

    Call the Midwife! Season 12. It makes me laugh, cry and sometimes hopeful.

    Waiting for Succession to finish its last season so that I can sign up for HBO, watch it, and Ted Lasso, and then sign off HBO. This is Ted Lasso’s last season as well and I’m glad they’re ending it before it gets old and tired.

    I re-watched Mad Men in recent weeks and that production went on, at least one season too long.

    Well, watched Top Gun Maverick Saturday night as it was free on Prime. OK, worth what I paid.

    Lately I have been recording a bunch of stuff on TCM, but the other day I started watching what I used to watch on Memorial day weekend....
    Mr. Roberts
    Operation Petticoat
    To Hell and Back.

    I am watching “Beef” on Netflix, a comedy, starring Ali Wong about a striving young career mom whose life is full of tension. The central conflict starts when she has a road rage incident with another man, and they track down each other two make each others lives miserable. Very funny. It’s centers on the Korean community in the Los Angeles area.

    I also started the new Keri Russell show “ Diplomat” which may be good, it’s hard to know yet.
