I like this man very much and had the honor of sitting with him at a table years ago. He's got guts, values, integrity and kindness. Had Obama lost to him in '08, I think he would've made a fine president instead. I may not have agreed with many things he believes in, but I wouldn't have been scared, horrified and sad the way I am now with Donald Trump. In honor of men like John McCain, please list in the comments some conservative men or women I should be watching out for. Men and women senators, city council men or women, community leaders and all around strong, intelligent but decent voices on the right. I'm not interested in ANYONE who supports Donald Trump. I'm interested in knowing about the good Republicans and Libertarians fighting against what he stands for and fighting for the future of their party and our country. Tell me.
This person is The President of The United States of America.
They call themselves the "Step and Repeat Kings"
Future female filmmakers. Listen up. #Repost @theacademy (@get_repost) ・・・ Every week this summer, our #AcademyGold interns get to hear from leaders in the industry. Here is some advice for future filmmakers from writer/director/actress Amber Tamblyn.
Los Angeles. My long time tour partner and best buddy Derrick Brown wrote an incredible play. Tickets on sale now for this one off. Be there.
When Trump supporters and the right say the elitist left are out of touch with the country I say at least we're not out of touch with THE REST OF THE WORLD.

Happy birthday, USA, you problem child, you.
You want to see a documentary that will really blow you away? CHECK IT is available now on Louis C.K.'s website www.louisck.net for streaming. Produced by our Paint It Black producer @wrenarthur this is one of the most powerful docs you'll see all year. In the words of Louis himself: "The film knocked me right over. It was an amazing emotional ride. It was funny and moving, I learned a lot and it gave me a lot to think about after. Check It was made over 4 years. Directed by Toby Oppenheimer and Dana Flor. It’s about a gay black street gang in DC (the only one documented in the country) made up of kids who were living on the streets and easy targets for violence and harrasment. They started this gang to protect each other. They made a family where they didn’t have one. It’s not an easy film. It takes on life right where the rubber hits the road. What made me love it was just the kids themselves. They are like any kids, like anyone’s children. They are trying to cope against terrible odds, they are funny and full of hope and life. Their lives are difficult and complex. They are very generous in sharing this with the filmmakers and you, if you watch the film."
Heyyyy! Interested in learning the craft of poetry? I'm hosting a very intimate writing workshop to support one of my favorite theaters in New York, MCC. Link in bio, bid now! Only a few seats available.
We do not belong to you. Our bodies are our own. If you love us, stand with us. Don't stand against us. Call your Senators. Fight. (Edit: it's extremely telling that a lot of you have to immediately bring up abortion in these comments as if that's what Planned Parenthood is all about, proving your willful ignorance and blindness towards everything else that matters. Let me clear: it is illegal for Planned Parenthood to use federal funds aka your tax dollars to perform abortions, which only take up 3% of services provided by Planned Parenthood. Please don't be a part of the problem by spreading misinformation.) #IStandWithPP

Any more Bernie bro girls or liberal white guys with beards want to spew on Chelsea Clinton this morning because she wrote a children's book? I'll come for you. I am not in the fucking mood.
Julius Caesar is a 400 year old play. A tragedy where MANY figures representing political powers are murdered or kill themselves. This is about the death of ideals and wars waged by men. It's not a literal call to harm Donald Trump. Get a grip. It's unreal how the right will spin things to fit their agenda. Listen to Oskar Eustis talk about the ownership of truth, art and culture here in this video I took tonight at the opening of The Public Theater's play.
Final performance today of CAN YOU FORGIVE HER at The Vineyard Theatre. This has been one of the great acting joys of my life. Truly. I'll miss these fine folks something fierce. (Photo credit: Liza Miller)
