For those of you interested in what happened to Cuba Gooding, Jr. "The Independent" has this profile piece about the former Oscar winner.  He talks about his latest role in the film "Shadowboxer," Spike Lee and how a role in Ridley Scott's upcoming drama "American Gangster" opposite Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington might just revitalize his career.


"Exuberant and mouthy, the actor has charm to burn. He calls me "lady" and "darling", talks with endearing humour, and seems happy to say whatever pops into his head. But, although he mentions his Academy Award some half-dozen times during the conversation, you sense, under the bravado, an edge of disappointment: the realisation, perhaps, that opportunities have passed him by."

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
