Covering the convergence of DC politics and Hollywood entertainment where it contributes to our culture.
This week we are honored to have Christian Toto joining us to discuss film, Hollywood, and just how exactly Ted Kennedy made it onto movie screens. He even sticks around to learn what Han Solo serves for breakfast. (Check his site for great views on the entertainment industry — HollywoodInToto.com)

This thread is corporate synergy done correctly.

BRAD’S BAD MOVIE OF THE WEEK
Nic Cage disappoints by NOT going crazy on screen. Here he plays a husband who leaves the city to start his dream of…running a seedy $30-a-night motel??? You know the film is in trouble when the highlight is a dead pig in the pool — and it doesn’t even lead to much. Review: Strictly for the Nic Cage completist. (In other words, for Sarah.)
