Dreaming Out Loud

As an unknown actor in the early ’50s, Paul Newman fought to play Hal Carter, the lead role in William Inge’s Pulitzer Prize–winning play Picnic. But the director wasn’t convinced Newman’s physique was fit enough for Hal, who appears naked from the waist up in most of his scenes. Eventually, Newman worked his way up to the from a supporting role, garnering critical acclaim and jump-starting his legendary acting career. Fast forward sixty years later to another relatively unknown actor, Sebastian Stan, a Romanian import best known for stint as Sigourney Weaver’s son in Political Animals and his supporting role in Captain America: The First Avenger. Like Newman, Stan was gunning for the lead in Captain America, but he was offered the role of the hero’s comparatively less-buff sidekick instead. Judging from the current state of his six-pack abs, however, he clearly didn’t have any trouble convincing director Sam Gold that he was ripped enough for Picnic’s Hal. x

Happy 36th Birthday Anthony Mackie! (9/23/1978)

Snippet: “You always look like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, Steve.” Peggy Carter noted.

The former Shield agent had aged gracefully, but sadly that didn’t stop her from developing Alzheimer’s. Even though Peggy was slowly forgetting how much of an impact she had on helping to make the world a better and safer place every once and a while she would remember who she used to be. It was as if something clicked in her brain, like an on switch.

“You are still too young to be carrying such a burden.”  She added softly turning her head slightly to get a better look at Steve.

Letting out a deep breath Steve contemplated on telling Peggy his progress, or lack thereof, on finding Bucky. He had Sam to talk to about it, but it was not the same. Peggy was from his time and although she could not remember him or Bucky, Steve felt safe talking to her.

Gotham is really good so far. Great first episode.

Happy 29th birthday, Tatiana Maslany! (September 22, 1985)
