Pics of the Day

I have no idea if this picture is new or old but I saw it floating around on social media today and it's new to me -- that's Harris Dickinson, Zac Efron, Jeremy Allen White, and Stanley Simons in Sean Durkin's next movie The Iron Claw, about a pro-wrestling family of brothers -- I just did a search and apparently I somehow have never posted about this movie here even though I've been very much aware of it for many many months? I don't know. Anyway what got my attention immediately was Durkin -- I will follow the director of Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Nest anywhere (and yes I think The Nest, which unfairly fell through the cracks during the early portion of the pandemic, is equally fantastic -- here's my review). Next of importance was Dickenson, who I will also follow anywhere at this point. Then there's Efron -- the important point was the "pro-wrestler" bit with him...

... of course. Blessings if he surprises us, but I don't look to him for "performances." Anyway when I'd first heard about this movie way back I hadn't watched The Bear yet so I didn't know -- I didn't know! -- how I'd come to feel about Jeremy Allen White. But I have now watched The Bear (well everything except the finale of the 2nd season so no spoilers, I didn't have time to finish it before my trip) and now I know how I feel about Jeremy and it ain't nothing!

Yeesh! As for Stanley Simons I have no idea who he is but I am open to finding out on Christmas, which is when The Iron Claw is set to come out (via A24). But since we're here let's, uhh, share two more pictures of Jeremy out running around L.A. last week:

Have you seen Shameless? I stuck with all 11 seasons--mostly for Jeremy, Joan Cusack, and Macy.

No I never watched Shameless, although I was tempted because of all the hot guys
