Good Morning, World

Today kind of feels like Movie Christmas for your host here since I sprung out of bed this morning thinking about how I am seeing Luca Guadagnino's remake of Suspiria (with gorgeous music by Thom Yorke!) this very evening. But before that I get another treat - this afternoon it's Barry Jenkins' adaptation of James Baldwin's If Beale Street Could Talk starring this fine young man seen here named Stephan James. (Watch the trailer right here.)

James has played a couple of real world heroes already in his career that you might recognize him from - he played Jesse Owens in the movie called Race and he played John Lewis in Selma. These gifs are from a show called Shots Fired that I honestly know nothing about but has got a pretty stacked cast with Sanaa Lathan and Helen Hunt and Richard Dreyfuss and True Blood's Stephen Moyer also on board. Does anybody watch it? Anyway you might also want to follow Stephan on Instagram...

Actually it's US Representative John Lewis. He's a congressman not a senator.
