That’s the message of this week’s column, in which Jeff Daniels–currently in the rom-com The Answer Man–tells me that when he worked with Jack ages ago in Terms of Endearment, he was amazed to learn that the superstar isn’t always the answer man himself.
Daniels also tells me about whether he’s glad he did Dumb & Dumber; how God of Carnage–for which he was Tony nominated–was directed to get the effect it’s had; and what it felt like to be a young theater stud in the ’70s along with hotties William Hurt and Christopher Reeve.
Also in the column:
The Tony awards drops me as a voter!
A new musical about cheerleaders! A new movie about dolphins!
Weird changes over at Maritime Hotel’s gay night!
And another trip to Fire Island, this time to fight AIDS and to drag Michael Jackson jokes out of Bruce Vilanch!
