Quote of the Day: CABARET's Emma Stone on her "ballsy" personality...

"My parents are both very funny but they're also relatively soft-spoken, normal human beings while I'm just a lunatic. I don't know where this loud, ballsy, hammy ridiculousness came from. I'm just glad I followed my goals and my parents did too."
-- Emma Stone (via BrainyQuote)

What we're looking forward to listening to: The new Broadway cast recordings of ON THE TOWN (out in January) and SIDE SHOW (out in February)!

What we're watching: Clint Eastwood's JERSEY BOYS movie, out on DVD and Blu-ray today!

And finally, a Happy Birthday shout-out to Stanley Tucci, who turns 53 today!

Tucci last appeared on Broadway in 2010's Lend Me a Tenor. Before that, he starred in Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune (for which he earned a Tony nomination), as well as Execution of Justice, The Iceman Cometh, Brighton Beach Memoirs, The Misanthrope and The Queen and the Rebels. Among Tucci's film credits are Winchell, an Oscar-nominated performance in The Lovely Bones, and The Devil Wears Prada, Julie & Julia, Captain America: The First Avenger, and the Hunger Games series. Fun fact: Tucci also played CABARET star Emma Stone's father in Easy A.
