Quote of the Day

"We went to different acting schools, but we had the same teacher, Ron Van Lieu, who was a huge, formative figure in our lives. We really bonded over that and our experiences in theater. I think that shared vocabulary can help bridge the gap between these very different styles that are in the same movie... I hadn't met him before. But he was actually more familiar with my theater work. It was really cool. I've been watching his film work; I remember seeing The Last Black Man in San Francisco and was just like, "Who is that?" He has this presence and this ability to use stillness to draw the audience in. He uses that to great effect as Kang."

I could listen to Corey Stoll lavish praise on Jonathan Majors all day long. I could watch Corey Stoll lavish all sorts of things on Jonathan Majors too, and for much longer than just days at that, but we won't get into that right now. Anyway that comes via GQ where they chatted with Corey on his return to the MCU in Quantumania (thx Mac) so check it if you care. I didn't like the movie very much (Majors escaped unscathed, because of course he did) and I really didn't like what they did to Corey, but I'm not angry at thoughts of Corey bonding with Jonathan so at least some good has come out of it. They should play boyfriends in something. Like, immediately.
