How Wyatt Russell went from hockey to the actor’s life – Virginian

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Tall and lanky Wyatt Russell displayed amazing athletic prowess when he was just a kid. He was so good at ice hockey that he moved from California to Vancouver when he was 15 to play. Two years later his team aced the Provincial Championship.

But at 24 his career was suddenly over. “My whole right side, from my knee to my hip, is torn so I couldn’t play anymore,” he says.

“That was taken away from me, but I feel like it was fate, a godsend because I wasn’t going anywhere in hockey. I was playing minor professional hockey in Europe, which is like you’re not going anywhere.”

That accident set Russell on a new path — one equally treacherous. He decided to try his hand at acting. His parents, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, are both actors, and their advice was short and simple: “Learn your lines. Show

How a true crime author helped catch the Golden State … – Star2.com

American author Michelle McNamara researched the Golden State Killer for years.

She even wrote a New York Times bestselling book about the man who raped and murdered dozens from 1976 to 1986 in Southern California: I’ll Be Gone In The Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search For The Golden State Killer.

(The book was released in February this year and is reviewed here.)

Earlier this year, a suspect was arrested in the case, but McNamara wasn’t there to see it. The true-crime writer died unexpectedly in her sleep in 2016 aged 46, leaving it to friends and family to celebrate her determination to see what she saw as a “solvable case” solved.

“When everyone woke up to that news, we were like, ‘Holy s***,” says Kera Bolonik, a resident of Brook-lyn, Illinois, where McNamara grew up, and the writer’s friend for 32 years.

“There’s a lot of pride and some sadness that she’s

Small companies, big ideas: Joke Productions

There’s no question that the television industry is competitive, and it can be hard for a small prodco to break through the noise and find its niche. In ‘Small Companies, Big Ideas’, realscreen chats with some indie prodcos who’ve innovated and thrived, showing the unscripted world that sometimes the best things come in small packages.

This edition features Los Angeles-based Joke Productions. Founded by wife and husband team Joke Fincioen (pictured, right) and Biagio Messina (left), the indie has produced a wealth of unscripted content, ranging from CNN/HLN’s recent Unmasking a Killer (focused on the Golden State Killer) and Oxygen’s Three Days to Live, to lighter fare such as VH1′s Scream Queens. They served as co-EPs and show runners on Beauty and the Geek for The CW, and also worked on
