Doesn’t it figure that, when I finally get rid of my Rolling Stone subscription, the magazine actually puts in an article that’s really interesting? A Sean Astin feature called “Hobbit Boy.” Luckily it’s all available online.
And in further strangeness, today I had a message from William H. Macy and wife Felicity Huffman, “on behalf of NARAL and pro-choice Americans.” I’m intrigued, in part because when WHM was on Leno last week (promoting The Cooler, which is part of my ever-growing list of movies to see very soon), he wasn’t wearing his wedding ring.
Also intriguing: The Hollywood Reporter, uh, reports that Brokeback Mountain is being made into a film, directed by Ang Lee (love love love) and possibly starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal as “two men who meet one summer as sheepherders in Wyoming and form a bond and love that spans 20 years.” Who recently recommended this book to me? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
And that’s the news I have for today.
