  • EUR Perspective: RIP, Philip Seymour Hoffman

    Feb 16, 14 by EurPublisher 8 Comments

    *The death of Philip Seymour Hoffman resonates so personally because he’s not the actor that everyone wants to be – it’s because he so closely resembled the actor that we all, secretly, think we’d be like. Hoffman never possessed those movie-star quality looks like his co-stars – Damon, Clooney, Gosling, Hawke – did. He was […]

    *There are a lot of ways we can poke fun at the great city of Atlanta. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” for one.

    *Oh, New Jersey. You’ve given us plenty of wonderful things – Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep, Bruce Springsteen, “The Sopranos” (of course, you’ve also given us Bon Jovi and the Jersey Shore cast, but we won’t mention that now). And yet, for all of those cultural icons, your political scene seems to provide the most Garden […]

    *It’s telling just how sad the unfortunate death of the great character actor James Avery made us last week. Of all the sitcom characters that graced our screen through the 1990s, there were few that were as lasting as the memorable ensemble that made up the cast of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
