RECOMMENDATION CORNER:

 

So this came out in May…don’t pretend like you’re not as far behind in your podcasts as we are. BUT the Parker Posey episode of WTF with Marc Maron is gold. High highs, low lows, and lots of inspiring thoughts on acting. Give it a listen here: http://wtfpod.libsyn.com/episode-599-parker-posey

PARTING SHOT:

An oldie but a goodie, we had to roll with the Parker Posey theme. JAN for next Pro Series class…amiright?
