ANTHONY MACKEY is No Lackey and it pays off. The scales are attractive that balance this hard-working Libra. When was the last time that you did not see Anthony Mackey in a production? He’s been present and on-cue since 2002. He is irrefutably a mad talented dude. From 8 MILE to SHE HATE ME to SYNCHRONIC and ALTERED CARBON to OUTSIDE THE WIRE this guy remains reel-elevated, forward-thinking, and on fire.

Since being cast in his first uncredited role in AS IF (2002) he has not had one year off. 8 MILE is the second film that he was cast in, also in 2002 and he has several productions pending this year and two that have already been released: OUTSIDE THE WIRE is a film co-starring British born actor Damson Idris, whose also the star of the series SNOWFALL; in its fifth season. In addition, Mackey is starring a six-episode miniseries that debuted in March on DISNEY PLUS titled THE FALCON and The WINTER SOLDIER co-starring Sebastian Stan.

Disney Plus is killing the box office booming game, however, for those of us who have yet to subscribe we can catch THE FALCON and THE WINTER SOLDIER streaming on Netflix. If you are interested in an honest review before screening the miniseries, peep Darren Mooney’s review at The Escapist

FACETIME or VIDEO PARTY LINE?

The other day I was on Facetime with my mom when she accidentally disconnected the call with her earring, at which time a person that I have never seen in my life appeared in the face of my phone and just stared at me. I was wondering if it was a still shot, and then she leaned in closer to her phone and my eyes grew wide as my thoughts began to race. I was two seconds from saying “Who the (pardon) are you,” when my right index finger disconnected the call.

Thank God for my right index finger, but who was that, and what kind of technical glitch-ification have I just been a victim of? That was a very scary experience, so I began to research if this has ever happened to anyone else and if there was a reason or resolution to prevent it from happening again?

To my surprise, it has happened before, many times, and the issues go back as early as 2013 in my brief 60-minute research. Reddit and Apple forums are two technical audiences that have reported on this topic and unfortunately, neither have answers as to why it happens.

The REEL CTW

Please don’t let the innocent face fool you. This man is brilliant, and his mind is reeled-out in shorts. Please tell me that you know of Christopher T. Wood and that you have seen his short film, “TIME TO KILL?”

The writer and star of the show are one-in-the-same, Wood portrays a stone-cold killer named Harris, who has been sent to a home to kill a target. The problem is the target is not home and Harris is tasked with killing time – which includes some very juxtapositional phone conversations about intimacy and sensitive emotions.

“Time to Kill” was produced in 2018, so I caught up with Wood recently on social media, we were just about to take our conversation to Zoom when he dropped this on me… Click here to continue to see what I saw!

Mid-week is at hand and I am respectfully on the move,
