Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Los Angeles premiere of SUFFRAGETTE starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep. I really enjoyed the film and I loved the subject matter. I'm so grateful for all the strong women who came before us who fought for equality. The fight is not over. Equality matters. VOTE.
The Best Driver in The County will be screening at the Palm Springs International ShortFest June 20th, 2015 at 1:30pm. Camelot Theaters, Palm Springs.
The Best Driver in The County is a short film based on Jack Richie's 1940's short story of the same title. While tending his garden one morning, Joe's simple tranquil world is randomly ambushed at gunpoint by Vivian and Jane, a bi-polar pair of escaped convicts looking to steal his car to enable their getaway. When Joe calmly claims that he lives alone out in the middle of nowhere without a car, Vivian, the menacing leader is immediately suspicious and a delicate game of cat and mouse ignites. Vivian seeks to unveil the secret Joe protects, while Joe carefully learns the backstory of these contrasting criminals and steers a plan by nurturing a conversation with the slower, simpler Jane. Violence is imminent. Directed by Marcus McCollum and written by Neal Foard. The cast includes Chris Mulkey, Tara Buck, Jenica Bergere and Pam Cook.

"Everyone who has seen Sunday's episode of True Blood "Love is to Die" knows that Ginger scored a major victory this week. The result was one of the series' greatest-ever, and certainly one of its funniest scenes.
The strung-out, over-glamored, bar-slinging fangbanger we all know and love is played by the lovely and hysterical Tara Buck. After speaking with Carrie Preston (Arlene) last week, I jumped at the chance to chat with her this week, but, for fun, I wanted to ask her a few questions she's probably never been asked. The very questions I imagine Ginger asks when Fangtasia's hiring new staff."

“I understood Ginger right away and felt like she was fun and wonderful in such a way that there were no limitations on how weird she could be,” notes the actress. “Fortunately, Alan specifically set the groundwork with each of our characters to the point where we felt we could do anything with them. He then took what we were doing, which Alan also always strongly supported, and used it to shape and develop our characters.
This season is definitely six years of a payoff for me, and I hope it is six years of a payoff for the audience, too, which I think it will be."
