These days, it’s remarkable to see how various celebrities can get older, yet somehow look basically the same age. Wonders like Paul Rudd and Jennifer Lopez captivate the public, as we wonder how on earth they manage to defy father time. And then there are the celebs who clearly have been able to afford a significant amount of, ahem, work on themselves. And while some take to it fairly well, others… not so much.

The Walt Disney Company is a partner of the organization, along with Apple, Bank of America, Pfizer, Visa, the State Department, and the Central Intelligence Agency, among others.

The organization bills the conference as the "largest LGBTQ+ conference in the world," saying it brings 5,000 attendees who are "ERG leaders and members, and HR and DEI professionals and experts – all working for LGBTQ+ equality."

The Walt Disney World Resort hosts various conferences varying in topic throughout the year. The last time the workplace summit was hosted at the Walt Disney World Resort was in 2016 when it was held at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort.

And while previous movies see John visit Rome, Casablanca, and other exotic locations across the world, John Wick: Chapter 4 is his most globetrotting adventure yet. John goes to Casablanca, New York, Paris, and Japan all within the first 10 minutes, but midway through the movie, he's required to visit Berlin.

LOS ANGELES — Thousands of Hollywood actors are heading to the picket lines after their labor union and a trade group representing the industry's leading studios failed to reach a deal on a new contract, grinding film and television production to a halt.

The national board of the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, or SAG-AFTRA, voted unanimously Thursday morning to go on strike, the guild announced at an afternoon news conference.

The picket lines will start to form Friday, marking the first time film and television performers have staged a work stoppage since 1980, when former SAG president Ronald Reagan was campaigning for the White House and the top-rated series on U.S. television was "Dallas."

Tony Dow Died One Year Ago, Now His Wife Breaks Her Silence​

Aug 24, 2023


The Cleaver family was wholesome yet relatable. They didn’t outshine others such as the Bradys or the Andersons in terms of ratings, but they’ll always be an important part of TV history. One of the major reasons for this was the cast who portrayed him. Tony’s life could have been completely different if he hadn’t followed a family friend to an audition. The producers took notice of his athletic build. They knew they’d found the boy to play Beaver’s older brother Wally. He rose to fame and became a favorite of the girls during his time on the show. He followed it up by guest starring in a few shows and even went behind the camera to direct and write. He returned as Wally in Leave it to Beaver revivals decades later. He couldn’t escape the name, even at home. His doting wife even once called him Wally!

The success didn’t make him rich or happy. He suffered from depression in his 20s but worked through it by making a video to help others who felt the same. His battle with liver cancer later forced him out of the spotlight. He began pursuing other passions such as sculpting. He also spent every moment he could with his children and grandchildren, even in hospice care. Linda was so distressed during that time that she delivered an announcement of his death. The world was shocked that one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood was gone, but that’s not the end of the story.
The Asphalt Jungle is a great movie.

Behind the Scenes

As a movie extra, the author has ridden the L with George Clooney and watched Christopher Nolan direct. But it’s not always so glamorous.

A direct message popped up on facebook from a friend I hadn’t seen in close to a decade.

“Hey!” she wrote. “Are you in the movie Divergent?? I was watching it on a flight and swore I saw you?!”

Every few years, I get a question like this over social media or from a coworker stopping by my desk.
