Julia Roberts Acts With Everyone: Late Last Night
Julia Roberts has starred movies with everyone! In truth, it’d be more practical to play “six degrees of someone who hasn’t starred in a movie with Julia Roberts," because she’s acted with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Shirley MacLaine, Susan Sarandon, Richard Gere and Clive Owen! With connections to those people, there’s no working actor that can deny his/her connection to J. Robs. And last night, she talked to David Letterman about what it was like to work with Tom Hanks on his latest movie, in addition to sharing screen time with Biff Henderson.
Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell relived their glory days on SNL together, and how terrible Will acted towards little kids…which he feels quite bad about now that he has two minions of his own. Will also reminded Jimmy about the time Shaq cradled him and mollified him with a little song.
And for old times, the rehashed an old skit, called “real people, fake arms.”
Jay Leno spoke to Sofia Vergara of Modern Family about the deal she made: that if her show won an Emmy, she’d run down Sunset Blvd naked. But she clarified she’d rather “speed walk” than run. If she’s smart, she knows it’s not the speed of her legs we’ll be focusing on.
Jon Stewart told us the House rejected a bill that would provide health care for the first responders from 9/11. How nice of them to reject it! Phewf, seriously. I wasn’t sleeping out of fear that all those selfless people, who put themselves at risk to rescue others, would actually be rewarded for their efforts and be shown some reciprocated kindness! So glad THAT’S not happening.

And Stephen Colbert talked about how Fox News is as proud of their absurdly popular ratings as you are that Prop 8 was overturned. However, he was surprised they didn’t report that just 1.38% of their viewers were black, and that Greta Van Susteren can’t tell black people apart.

Chris Remi is a responsible mostly serious accountant with the nickname Goat of Fire. Tony is his younger brother a struggling actor who's popular with the ladies and goes by the nickname Smiling Fish. When their parents die the two must learn to adjust to life without Mom and Dad. Meanwhile Chris attempts to reconcile with his estranged wife before meeting an Italian beauty while Tony must decide what he wants when he meets his perfect match.
Chris and Tony played by real-life brothers Derick and Steven Martini respectively are relatively newcomers to the big screen and their acting doesn’t necessarily leave a lasting memory. They’re brothers playing brothers no real stretch there. The best performance by far is provided by Bill Henderson who plays Clive Winters -- a retired soundman from Hollywood’s Golden Age. Clive warms up to Chris taking him under his wing to teach him a thing or two about the wonders of love and weaving the films various subplots into a sweet package.
Director Kevin Jordan also wrote this film with the Martini brothers and produced it on a shoestring budget of $40 000. Clearly then it's all about the story. Shot in Los Angeles over 12 days Jordan draws you in with the appealing story line wins you over with some comic relief and keeps you hoping that each brother will get his girl.
