Oscar winner and Broadway star Joel Grey celebrates his 80th birthday today. Mr. Grey won his Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for recreating his celebrated Broadway performance in the critically acclaimed, innovative film version of Cabaret, directed by Bob Fosse.
In other TV talk, this morning I heard the word "shocking" used seriously several times on network news reporting that Sherri Shepherd of The View did not make it to the next round of ABC's Dancing With The Stars competition. She didn't score enough points.
About Sherri...I have a prediction about her. She will do like Mo'Nique, Jamie Foxx and Robin Williams. She'll be a sitcom veteran who proves her dramatic acting skills in a future project. Sherri did brief yet impressive dramatic role in Precious, the film that made Mo'Nique a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award winner. Sherri's serious work really stood out to me.
