Quote of the Day: A relevant quote from playwright Christopher Durang, who is starring in his own Tony-winning play tonight at Bucks County Playhouse...

Since I also act, sometimes I get over my resentment and commit to the pitch as an acting job.
-- Christopher Durang (via BrainyQuote)

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Donald Sutherland, who turns 79 today!

Sutherland has starred on Broadway in Buck White (1969) and Lolita (1981), but he is best known these days as 'President Snow' (pictured below), the eerie, calculating leader of the Capitol in the Hunger Games film franchise. He will soon appear in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2, as well as The Calling, Forsaken, and Basmati Blues. He also recently starred as 'Michel Dorn' in the TV series Crossing Lines. Among Sutherland's past screen credits are The Dirty Dozen, The Eagle Has Landed, M*A*S*H, JFK, Pride & Prejudice and more. Oh, and he's Kiefer Sutherland's dad (in case you were wondering).
