Ever since I gave Bill his big break as my co-host on the Photo Safari, he’s setting the world on fire. That’s me trying to be funny. Bill Shatner needs no help from anyone to be absolutely great. He is genuinely one of the most talented people on the planet. Great actor, big and small screen, thoughtful director, an accomplished writer, one of the most avid readers I’ve ever met, a mensch when comes to being a husband and a father, and a damn good friend. JoAnne and I were in the front row for Bill’s last New York performance last night. He was nothing short of out-of-this-world. No-one should be surprised.
Both JoAnne and I had a great meeting with Jerry Beaver the other day. We talked about all things film. Jerry is a wealth of information and he had some excellent advice on a couple of projects that JoAnne and I are involved in. Creative criticism, creative critique, creative advice. The key word being creative! It also makes it very easy when you respect someone.
Jerry, come by anytime. See you at the Milford Theater soon! JoeD
