Yeah, it's my real name. I think my parents named me after that James Bond fellow, whom I've met and interviewed, BTW.
Not to date myself, but my first published review was "Rocky IV," made some lame crack about Stallone sticking with this franchise until he was "Rocky on I.V.," or some such. I have been a film critic with several newspapers and such wire services as McClatchy-Tribune News Service, and my work -- filmmaker, actor profiles, movie reviews -- has appeared in a vast array of North American (and Australian) newspapers -- Los Angeles Times, Detroit Free Press, Philly papers, The Atlanta Journal Constitution to The Washington Post.
I've also been published in Spin, The World, Vitae, assorted other magazines over the years. And I've popped up on MSNBC, CNN, and more local TV and radio programs than I can count.
As newspapers, TV and radio stations and magazines have finite shelf lives for articles they keep up online, this site serves mainly as an archive -- one place where every actor or filmmaker profile or review that I write can be found.
Now, let's talk about movies.
