Quote of the Day II

Lovecraft Country star and MNPP obsession Jonathan Majors got himself interviewed for The New York Times today! (thx Mac) It's some about that show, which premieres on HBO this upcoming Sunday night (watch the trailer here), and it's some about the all-black Western called The Harder They Fall that he's currently in quarantine for -- on the latter note the NYT set him up with a choice question about actors being "essential workers" and Majors had this to say:

"I believe the arts are a service industry. We doctor different things. We doctor the invisible hurt. We mend the phantom pain. I believe — and I’ll say to anybody — we are essential for humanity. When we all come together, around the campfire or around a television, and experience something together that allows us to move through the world with a bit more confidence, a bit more security, knowing that we are not alone … well, that seems essential to me."
