  1. I'm convinced now that they are from LA, not NYC...sorry for jumping to conclusions without thoroughly examining the pictures. Like I said, my main focus was on what he had on, his hair style, etc...being so identical to the loft pic of him sitting in the chair on the front of AD. These are from LA, I realize that now. Again, sorry...my bad...
  2. These pictures are from his NY loft, NOT his LA (Los Feliz) home. In a couple of the pictures, you can see the Hudson River behind him (he's standing on his rooftop garden it looks like. But these are additional pictures from the Architectural Digest shoot and are from his Chelsea Loft in Manhattan, NYC, NOT LA. But they are beautiful pictures, and love the one of him holding the Robert Burns book, undoubtedly, one of his own books on Burns. FOOTNOTE: In looking closer at the pictures, they MAY be from the LA/Los Feliz house. I was going mostly by him with the same shirt, jeans, hair and jewelry/bracelets on that he has on in the NYC loft AD picture (the one of him in the chair on the front of the magazine). The pictures could be from LA, but even the interior of the house looks more like the NYC loft than the pictures we have seen of his Los Feliz house. Quite confusing photos here.
  3. The poster is STUNNING...one of the most beautiful movie posters I have ever seen...Someone wrote that the poster alone could win an Oscar...not much of an exaggeration there....it is just BEAUTIFUL...I hope the movie makes it to our area...I don't like this "limited release" thing at all, and may end up having to drive a distance to see it. RockNRolla finally came here, though, so hopefully MGP will as well. Peace.... Tense
  4. CONGRATULATIONS to Kris Kelly...who had the winning bid for Gerry's shirt in the Celtic Charity Fund Auction...that was one well deserved win...I could not be happier for her... Cheers.... Tense
  5. For anyone interested in the Dolphin Movie narrated by Gerry, I contacted the producer and director for information as to how to get the DVD when it is released. It won't be released until 2012, but he sent me this email, which tell how to pledge with different amounts for different items including the DVD (I did a $40.00 pledge today), through Amazon.com. Also, whatever you pledge, your credit card will not be charged until August 23, when the pledges are all to be submitted by, and only then will credit cards be released, not when you make your pledge prior to August 23. Here is the email I got from Jonathon Kay. jk@dolphinmovie.com to me show details 1:10 PM (2 hours ago) Aloha Tense! Thanks for your message. We are almost finished the movie NA NAI'A LEGEND OF THE DOLPHINS but are needing to raise funding for final edits, final music, and final changes to the film to prepare it for distribution and funding for conversion of the movie to 3-D so that it can be projected in theaters in 3-D across the US and internationally! We have created a webpage at the site below at which you can make a pledge now and get a DVD of the film when the film is completed and released on DVD. Your support of this important film about the dolphins, their message to humanity, and the importance of their survival, by making a pledge at this time on the site below can really make a difference in the completion of NA NAI'A LEGEND OF THE DOLPHINS and in getting the film into distribution in theaters so that everyone can see the film and take part in supporting the dolphins and the global conservation of the oceans of the Earth! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2053154235/na-naia-legend-of-the-dolphins Please share the following webpage link with your friends so that they can participate too and pre-order DVD's of the movie NA NAI'A LEGEND OF THE DOLPHINS! Sincerely, Jonathon Kay Director MAGIC FACTORY PRODUCTIONS INC. Producer/Director NA NAI'A: Legend of the Dolphins
  6. I surely hope that filming will be from March-May, as my son and I are planning a road trip to Shreveport in mid-April. If the dates do change, we can change our plans accordingly, but we need to know for sure when the dates of filming are going to be.
  7. Brian has the twin girls, Rachel and Katy, and Lynn and Jim have Sarah and Niehm (not sure on that spelling, may be Niemh), but it's the Gaelic spelling of what we would pronounce "Neve." I think she is the youngest of the two of Lynn's girls. None of them were Cinderella in the play. Gerry surely does dote on all of them, though, and they love their Uncle Gerry...as evidenced in all the pictures of him with them. (Rachel and Katy at "Nim's" premiere, Sarah and Neihm at "HTTYD" premiere.... Peace and Love this Holiday Season to ALL.... Tense
  8. Found a very interesting article about the possibility of Gerry being a "contender" to be another Clint Eastwood...what we have been talking about lately.... http://www.seattlepi.com/movies/429231_film42134411.html Just scroll down...it's very interesting.... Peace, out.... Tense
  9. I can understand Gerry spending more time in NYC than he does in LA (having lived in LA for three years while going to UCLA back in the late 70's)...and I know it has grown/improved since then...but still, there is so much more to do in NYC, the theater, socialilte parties, benefits out the wazoo, the restaurants are so upscale and fabulous there, just sitting at an outdoor cafe, watching the people is entertainment in itself, the museums, art galleries, Greenwich Village, The Bowery, Times Square, Broadway, there if far more to do and far more "color" in NYC than in LA...LA is just 99% movie industry, and not a whole lot else. They have plays, and good restaurants, but their nightlife consists mostly of clubs and the Hollywood/actor bunch...whereas NYC is a melting pot of everything, and just a more interesting place to be. And the paparazzi are not "quite" as tenacious and annoying as they are in LA. Given the choice, I certainly would choose NYC over LA...it's just a "funner" place (I know that's not a word, but I like it...).... Before anyone jumps at me thinking I am criticizing or downing Los Angeles, I'm not at all. LA has it's attributes, but there just seems to be more of a diversity of things to do in NYC as opposed to LA. More choices of places to go, people to see, things to do. LA has a lot, but I think NYC has more. LA's focus is mainly on the movie business, NYC's focus is on everything.... Peace, out.... Tense
  10. I TOTALLY agree, having Gerry do the voice-over narration would be absolutely wonderful.... Peace, out.... Tense
  11. There are many "urban legends" out there about Butch and Sundance and what actually happened in Bolivia. Some "historical" accounts are that both were killed in Bolivia, there are other "historical" accounts that say that after they sent Etta Place back to the US for her protection, that Harry Longbaugh (Sundance) was killed, but that Robert Leroy Parker (Butch) survived, and returned to the Hole in the Wall to live out the rest of his life with Etta Place (where she had resumed her life as a schoolteacher. Neither of these theories have been able to be concretely proven, even though they have accounts from Butch's family, nothing has been proven one way or the other. It makes for interesting "stories around the campfire" though...I would like to think that Butch survived and came back as reported by some, but as of now, nobody really knows the real truth.... Peace, out.... Tense
  12. Pinkerton's agency were in pursuit of Butch and Sundance - they were responsible for taking in most of the Hole in the Wall Gang. When Butch kept asking Sundance "Who are those guys?" it was the Pinkertons who were tracking them. Joe Lefors, who was one of the best and known trackers during that time (I think he was part Indian, but not totally sure on that), was the one leading the trackers, and I think either Butch or Sundance mentioned him in the movie. Joe Lefors was hired by Pinkerton to help track Butch and Sundance, but it's sketchy whether or not he actually became employed otherwise by Pinkerton, but some reports are that he was. I think Lefors always wore a straw hat/skimmer. Peace, out..... Tense
  13. The only other thing that I can add to this is that as a producer, that would give him BETTER access to what is out there, and greater choices as to what he wants to take on to star in next. More will be visible to him and accessible to him during the times he's producing. He won't be "hidden away," but rather smack dab in the middle of all of it, and better able to pick and choose projects than if he were just acting in one particular movie, waiting for the next one to come along. As a producer, he'll know more of what is out there quicker than waiting for his agent or manager to tell him what's available. So the theory of him being "out of sight, out of mind," doesn't fit at all. As I pointed out before, there are more actors/actresses out there with their own production companies now than not, and they don't always star in the movies they produce. or direct (as a good many have ventured into directing as well). None of them have "disappeared" from sight, and neither will Gerry. I don't think Gerry will ever stop acting...it's his passion, what he loves more than anything (next to Miss Lolita....), but extending himself in this direction, can only mean good things. I'm as big a fan as anyone out there, probably more than many are...and I'm rather "selfish" where Gerry is concerned as well. I would love nothing better than to see him on screen several times a year, but I also see this move into producing as a very positive move on his part, in the advancement of his career, and it's a good and positive thing. I have to trust Gerry, that's all part of being part of his support system and "Team Gerry," that we all have been for so long now. This is just another "adventure" in GerryWorld, and I'm anxious for this ride to continue on...as I feel that it's going to be a very interesting ride to be on with Gerry, and cheering him on every step of the way. Let's try to see the glass as half full, instead of half empty...it's all good. He's working, doing what he loves to do, and he's nowhere near leaving any of our lives. Just another accomplishment that will bring him bigger and better things, and all of us will benefit from it all. Quite frankly, I'm anxious for him to get into maybe get into directing eventually...he certainly has the chops for it, and as astute to the movie making business as he is, I think he would do fabulously in directing. Peace, out.... Tense
  14. I agree totally with what Patsyb has said...and from where I sit, it seems that there is a panic going on that is quite premature and unnecessary, at least at this point in time. Gerry has taken on another production role. But we have no idea what else is in that great pipeline of projects that always seems to be there, even when we are not aware of what or when. Lest we not forget RockNRolla, when he was half way shooting the movie before we even knew it existed. Gerry is full of surprises, even when it comes to his work. Just because there is not anything publically announced just yet, beyond the Pinkerton project, does not mean that there is nothing there coming up for Gerry. Gerry is an actor, first and foremost. That is his passion, and he's not going to "fade away" into the sunset from acting. We have not seen the last of him up on that silver screen, not by a long shot. And at this point, we don't know if he will star in the Pinkerton project as well as executive produce it. But whatever the case may be, we need to look at this as a positive move on his part. He is going the way of Eastwood, Cruise, Hanks, and the list goes on and on. He's broadening his horizons, stretching those long, beautiful legs, spreading those wings...getting his finger on all the pulses of movie making. I fully expect him to move into direction eventually, and that would be a REAL gem in his crown. Remember that all of Clint Eastwood's Oscars have been for what he did BEHIND the camera... I don't understand why anyone would object or feel anything but elation for Gerry for this. He is a very capable and astute businessman, and as was pointed out by another poster, you have to spend money to make money. I have all confidence in Gerry that he knows exactly what he is doing, and as his fans and supporters, we all need to trust him and fully support his decisions. He may cut back a bit from time to time from acting, but he's not going to stop acting all together. He may be more "selective" in his choices of movies now, and producing in the meantime is a pretty good "filler" and way to make money to put back into ET productions and a means for acquiring rights for projects, like "The Septembers of Shiraz" which is years away from being made, but what a good choice for a future ET production that will be. Gerry is on the path of being a real movie "mogul..." and his talents are going to grow, and grow...He's an A-lister now, and is always networking with the biggest and the best in the industry. And as I said above, we don't know what's in that pipeline...there could be 3-4 projects on the horizon that just have not been announced yet....and I think we all should just take a deep breath and sit back and relax, and just wait for the next news. Gerry has had a very grueling past couple of years, with all the BH Ballyhoo and all that he suffered and incurred during that time. Then the two movies, back to back, Coriolanus and MGP. The man HAS to be totally exhausted, and I expect that he needs a fairly extensive vacay, at least some time off from it all, to recharge his batteries and ready himself for the next project. We have no idea what he's "up to" right now, aside from his L'Oreal deal, but you can bet that he's not sitting on his laurels, letting the world pass him by. That's not his style. Also, remember, that "Playing the Field" - previously "Slide" is out there, and still very much on the active list, so that could be the next thing we hear of. My point is simple...to not get worked up over this, it's a very positive and lucrative move on Gerry's part to get into some production. None of this means that he is leaving acting or that we'll never see him on the screen again. I trust Gerry, and have confidence that he knows what he is doing, and that whatever decisions he makes will be the right ones, for himself, as well as for us, his fans. I'm extremely excited about all of this, as it will further show the powers that be, as well as the viewing public, the mettle that he is made of and the extensive and great talent that he is. He's following some of the greatest of the greats and he deserves the full support of his fans. I respect the opinions of everyone here. Opinions are like backsides, we all have one, and all should be respected, even if we don't agree. I hope that I have not offended anyone with my opinion, and that what I said above will also be respected, even if you don't agree. Peace, out..... Tense
  15. I see this as a very POSITIVE move on Gerry's part...he's expanding those wonderfully talented wings in the right direction, and I don't think that he will ever give up acting, just maybe not as much as he has in the past...Alan made the comment during LAC that Gerry/ET would be getting into more producing and Gerry not acting as often in the future, so we have been prepared for this to come about. He may do less acting now, but he will still be very much involved in the business, and we will still be there for him, those of us who are real, bonafide fans of his. To not support his production efforts is saying that we don't support his career. This is what he wants to do. And I foresee him getting into directing eventually as well...look at Clint Eastwood, he does all three, very successfully, and Gerry may well be headed in that direction of acting, producing, and directing. I think he would be a crackerjack director, he has that savvy knowledge and talent. There have been some on other sites to say that they won't see the movies that he only produces...that's craziness...those movies are still a part of Gerry, and should be supported for him just as much as those he stars in. Anything with his name attached to, either as star, producer (or maybe ultimately director - wishing here...) are ALL a part of him and as fans, we should embrace every one of them and give him our full support. This is just my humble opinion here, and I for one, am happy that he's doing what makes him happy. At the end of the day, that is all that matters. I do not see anything but good coming out of all this, for him, as well as for his fans. We are on an incredible journey with him, and this is just another adventure in GerryWorld that we will follow him through. Peace to all... Tense
