Bragging on a friend

Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like to introduce you to our friend, Mr Charlie Newell.

For those of you who already know him, he needs no introduction.

(What is this "State the Flipping Obvious Day?")

But for those of you who aren't so lucky......we met Charlie at the School of Ministry in TO - he was a student on the same school as us. A bit of a rabble-rousing, practical-joke playing, girl-teasing, musically enhanced, poetic-souled guy. Oh and he can act too. After graduating he bought a motorbike and rode around Europe for a few months (he's from New Orleans, USA....so even more credit to him for his excellent taste in French Cheese). Then he came back to the school to be on staff for a year.

He does a great Frank Sinatra. Looks grrreeeaat in a tux. And is a romantic soul trapped in the body of a cheeky punk.

Oh and he is SO going to be famous. You heard it here first folks. Yep he is already pals with Sean Penn after being his body double in a film...and then getting a speaking part in said film. He looks intense and brooding...but is more fun than you can shake a stick at. He likes fart gags and midgets - but we'll forgive him that.

Anyway he mentioned on his blog that he was interviewed in one of New York's actor magazines and so I have been plaguing him for a copy. He emailed me a pdf of the interview and I have given YOU a link to it.

I could only have done this with considerable help from my personal MacGenius - Mr Alyn Jones. He talked me through the whole procedure, and I quote, "Ok Adele, is the lid up? The silvery thing with the little apple cut out. Is it open? Ok, can you see words and stuff on the screen. Yes the glassy type thing. That is the screen. DON'T TOUCH IT!" Ok ,maybe it wasn't quite like that...but not far off!

SO if you want to read about Charlie...click here

(Uh, I never actually asked his permission to do this....but hey....he's an actor, he's got to get used to publicity.)

Charlie Newell for president.

Once when Charlie was asked to read a line that was weak he called Mr. Norris over and roundhoused his ass to the floor and then flicked the writer / director of the film all the way to Fiji...then he made the film himself (It's called "The Great Escape" you may have heard of it)

There's many more stories but I don't want the tabloids getting hold of them.

Also Charlie is a kick ass friend, the quality of which is timeless and heartfelt, through thick, thin, distance, nearness, whatever.

He's the real deal.

Cool Huh.
