Director Peter Hedges and Actor Oliver Platt sat down at the Four Seasons to discuss their new film, Pieces of April, starring Katie Holmes.
Street: Peter, what was it like directing a film for the first time?
Peter Hedges: I'm so pleased with how the movie turned out and everyone who worked on the movie.
Aaron Lewis may be a moping and MTV-friendly Fred Durst suck-up, but his band isn't half bad live. On Saturday, Staind and Sevendust kicked off the first day of their tour with a sonic flurry of rock proportions.
As Sevendust's Thundercats-esque red and black flag descended, testosterone coursed madly through the audience's veins.
I've admitted it before, and I'll admit it again: I love MTV's reality shows. Real World, Road Rules, Real World/Road Rules Challenge, Fraternity Life, Sorority Life, True Life, The Osbournes, Newlyweds. They're all masterpieces, Shakespearean in their comedy, tragedy and poetry.
Ah, the memories... I remember my first step into punk when I heard MXPX covering "Summer of '69." I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Since then, I have ditched Christian pop-punk, and so has MXPX on their new LP, Before Everything and After. That may not be a good thing in their case.
David Spade gets the shaft. Maybe it's because he came of age with the last SNL cast to actually do something with their lives -- Chris Rock may never be Bill Cosby, but he'd beat Horatio Sans in any laugh-off know to man.
David Spade sat down with Street at the Four Seasons last week to talk about his new movie --in which he actually acts--occasionally.
What was it like working with child actors on a film that's basically about how being a child actor screws you up?
It's funny because I wanted them to be in the movie and I was like "I play, like, a loser - do you wanna come play yourself as a loser?" But they had a good sense of humor about it.
