Friday, September 15th, 2017

How did they find just the right little star to play everyone’s favorite nerd from The Big Bang Theory as a boy?

The answer is in one of my latest features covering the September 10 edition of Parade magazine.

You can read my Young Sheldon profile on Parade.com featuring interviews with both Jim Parsons—who plays Sheldon on the original hit show—and the star of the brand new CBS spinoff Young Sheldon, Iain Armitage.

Like Fathers, Like Sons: Sam Elliott and Ashton Kutcher

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

This weekend, in honor of Father’s Day, my latest cover feature was published: A sit down chat with two of the stars of the Netflix sitcom The Ranch, which just debuted a new season. Lucky for me, those two stars were Sam Elliott and Ashton Kutcher (who also co-produces the show), for the cover of the June 18, 2017 issue of Parade magazine.

It was an honor to talk to each of them about growing up with their dads, as well as what they’ve learned and love about being dads themselves now. You can read my full piece here—Like Fathers, Like Sons—on the Parade site.

And aside from Sam Elliott’s role on The Ranch, the countdown is on for the release of his upcoming movie The Hero, out July 4th. Consider me first in line for that one…

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.”

I had so much fun popping by the set of the ABC sitcom Black-ish to sit down with the cast of the comedy for a recent cover of PARADE magazine.

I met up with Laurence Fishburne, Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross and the four actors who play their kids on the show to chat about how to balance the serious things in life with a little fun like family game night—and which of them might beat you at a game and never ever let you forget it. (Hint: It’s Anthony Anderson).

You can read the full story on Parade.com, which includes even more of their wit and wisdom than the print edition. Check out Game On: Balancing Serious Issues and Fun with the Cast of Black-ish.

The Property Brothers: Living the Dream

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

I recently flew out to Las Vegas for a different kind of story: To visit the dream home of HGTV superstar home experts Jonathan and Drew Scott, also known as The Property Brothers. I sat down to talk with them for the cover of PARADE magazine about their childhood, their careers, their downtime, and their new book Dream Home, out now (it debuted on April 4). And consider me impressed. These twin brothers have officially been working it since they were kids, and they intend to keep their empire growing.

You can read the full piece on Parade’s website—Property Brothers: Living the Dream—or take a look at the story here.
