Transparent
Finally catching up on Transparent. It's even better than I'd already assumed it would be. Jeffrey Tambor is sooo getting an Emmy. I'm actually surprised other actors on the show weren't nominated for Golden Globes.

Trans-RopersRopers

Just a few short decades ago, Jeffrey Tambor was starring with Audra Lindley on the silly show The Ropers, and now he's borrowing her wardrobe to help make a serious statement about life.

I think TV has officially surpassed the movies. TV used to be something legit actors avoided, because TV used to be The Ropers and now it's Transparent. Please check it out if you've been holding back.

Not The Same Old Song: The Art Of Being Betty Buckley Comments (0)

Betty-Buckley2560

Betty Buckley is a national treasure.

Unlike many others who have achieved that status, she isn't known for one project or even one medium—some immediately know her as “Grizabella” from the original Broadway production of Cats (for which she won her Tony), others think of her as the replacement mom on Eight is Enough in the '70s, still others go to her strong performance in the indelible film Carrie (1976).

Betty-BuckleyThe truth is, she's done even more than those already dissimilar and wonderful things. But if one gift can be singled out among the many, I would argue that it has to be her singing voice, which is a unique and mesmerizing instrument. And it only gets better.

If you need a reminder, Buckley has recently released Ghostlight, a beautifully nuanced collection of classic songs (produced by T Bone Burnett) that you feel like you're hearing for the first time thanks to her interpretive skills. She'll be performing them live in Palm Springs (January 17),  Beverly Hills (January 24), Miami (February 27 & 28), Boston (March 13 & 14) and Fort Worth (March 28), as well as teaching a Song Interpretation & Monologue Workshop in L.A. (beginning January 18).

I was honored to interview Ms. Buckley this month. Keep reading for her replies...
