Look who stopped out to see The Dent Schoolhouse!!! Nicollette Sheridan from Desperate Housewives, Bart Johnson from High School Musical,they are both in town filming a movie in Lebanon called “Christmas Spirit” for the Hallmark Channel.
Hey, it’s Brian & Laura. We loved this! Actor Sir Anthony Hopkins spent days watching the entire series of Breaking Bad and loved it so much, he sent Bryan Cranston and the cast a fan letter. Check it out below.
Dear Mister Cranston.
I wanted to write you this email – so I am contacting you through Jeremy Barber – I take it we are both represented by UTA . Great agency.
I’ve just finished a marathon of watching “BREAKING BAD” – from episode one of the First Season – to the last eight episodes of the Sixth Season. (I downloaded the last season on AMAZON) A total of two weeks (addictive) viewing.
I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!
Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have seen – ever.
I know there is so much smoke blowing and sickening bulls**t in this business, and I’ve sort of lost belief in anything really.
But this work of yours is spectacular – absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary, is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making? How the producers (yourself being one of them), the writers, directors, cinematographers…. every department – casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to the end is (that over used word) awesome.
From what started as a black comedy, descended into a labyrinth of blood, destruction and hell. It was like a great Jacobean, Shakespearian or Greek Tragedy.
If you ever get a chance to – would you pass on my admiration to everyone – Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Aaron Paul, Betsy Brandt, R.J. Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Steven Michael Quezada – everyone – everyone gave master classes of performance … The list is endless.
Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.
You and all the cast are the best actors I’ve ever seen.
That may sound like a good lung full of smoke blowing. But it is not. It’s almost midnight out here in Malibu, and I felt compelled to write this email.
Congratulations and my deepest respect. You are truly a great, great actor.
Brian here…Ben Rector stopped by the station today and I really enjoyed meeting him. Ben is playing Bogarts tonight in support of his new cd “The Walking In Between.” He was nice enough to sit down and record an acoustic version of “Beautiful” here in the studios. To hear it click on the file just above the cd cover.
The Hallmark Channel is currently in town filming a new feature film called “The Christmas Spirit” starring Nicolette Sheridan and Olympia Dukakis. The production has been working with the Film Commission to establish the tax incentive for the project, scout locations, identify local crew/talent, support services, and identify housing. “We are ecstatic to have another production in town. It is thrilling to give locals another opportunity to participate as extras / as well as land some larger roles.
In addition, “Christmas Spirit” will not only create jobs but will also provide a significant economic impact in our region”, Kristen Erwin Schlotman, Executive Director of the Greater Cincinnati Film and Northern Kentucky Film Commission. “Christmas Spirit” will premiere in December on the Hallmark Channel.
