William Forsythe isn’t as common a name as, say, John Smith, but you wouldn’t want to confuse the actor with the Scottish director Bill Forsyth (LOCAL HERO). And it’s happened, says actor Forsythe. “We used to stay at the same hotel in New York, as well as the choreographer. There’s a choreographer named William, and there were times we all three were there at once and we’d get our calls mixed up.” As an actor, the Brooklyn-born Forsythe is seldom confused with others. His tall build and piercing blue gaze have made him effective in many roles on both sides […]Read On »

Actors Juliet Landau and Matthew J. Williamson and […]Read On »

Book Review: WHEDONISTAS! A CELEBRATION OF THE WORLDS OF JOSS WHEDON AND THE WOMEN WHO LOVE THEM

WHEDONISTAS! A CELEBRATION OF THE WORLDS OF JOSS WHEDON AND THE WOMEN WHO LOVE THEM

Editors: Lynne M.

It’s inarguable that Joss Whedon resides at the pinnacle of this group. Should the title of WHEDONISTAS! A CELEBRATION OF THE WORLDS OF JOSS WHEDON AND THE WOMEN WHO LOVE THEM need explanation, it refers to female fans of the man and his released work so far: the television series BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, ANGEL, FIREFLY and DOLLHOUSE, the FIREFLY […]Read On »
