Unlikely Heroes

I love this age of unlikely heroes. Like Ant Man where an ex-con makes good as the tiniest superhero of all!

Great cast by the way. Michael Pena had me ROLLIN!

Or Trainwreck, which I'm still reeling from. SO funny but also incredibly heartfelt.

I was watching HBO's "Making of: Trainwreck," and it was mentioned several times how Amy Schumer and Bill Hader are usually playing "the best friend" of the leads, but this movie focuses on them as the leads, and I love it! Thank you, Judd Apatow!

For an actor like me, that's good news, because I always play The Wild Card, someone out of the norm. Like Rita in "Lucky Stiff": a near-sighted mob wife who tries to kill her lover and then goes on a wild-goose chase through Europe to find him and win him back.

Or in "The Tragic and Horrible Life of the Singing Nun," I played Jeanine, a Belgian girl who falls in love with another girl before entering the convent, writes a hit song, and then leaves the convent to be with the woman she loves.

It's time for our stories. And boy, do I realize I need to get back into writing them!

Write on! :)
