Some of…The Magnificent Seven

Monday, September 19th, 2016

My latest cover story debuted this month: A Parade magazine interview with Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, about what it’s like playing Two of the Good Guys.

mag7coverI spoke to the pair at a home in Los Angeles, about their latest film: The Magnificent Seven, which is sort of a remake (1960’s The Magnificent Seven released in 1960) of a remake (1954’s Seven Samurai), but more so just its own thing.

The film, led by director Antoine Fuqua, opens nationally this weekend. And in the meantime, enjoy the fun that is Denzel and Chris batting their answers back and forth and discussing how they got along with their horses, and the value of playing “the goofy, funny guy.”

An idea and a magazine: Visit California!

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

As a break from my usual gig interviewing artists, actors, creative stars and up-and-comers, I did a little exploring around my town of Los Angeles for the brand new, redesigned 2016 edition of Visit California—which is technically the California state tourism guide. But cool, like.

The magazine hits on every area of California—Northern wine country, San Diego, the desert areas, etc.—but I got to write about all the latest greatest stuff in L.A. Here’s a taste of the spots I wrote about (speaking of taste, mmmm, those oysters):

You can also go to the Visit California site for travel ideas. My stories aren’t on there yet, but it’s currently being redesigned as well and will soon be rad. Another option is to actually visit California. I vote for that one.

Sophia Bush Seizes the Day / HEALTH Magazine

I guess it’s fall, then. My first autumn cover is for the September 2015 issue of Health magazine, where I sat down for coffee one morning in West Hollywood with Sophia Bush.

Formerly of One Tree Hill, she’s now one of the stars of the NBC show Chicago P.D. and engaged in more than a few charitable organizations. Loved her. Love the piece. Hope you agree.

You can read the full piece here — Sophia Bush Seizes the Day — on Health.com’s website.
