As the week ends, I would like to send some love to Jeremy Strong who I’m lucky enough to have worked with twice and who I am proud to consider a friend. I deeply value his qualities of thoughtfulness, sincerity, authenticity, sweetness, depth, kindness, generosity, as well as his powerful intelligence and extraordinary sensitivity. He is an incredibly talented and inventive artist who is fully engaged and committed on set, as well as a passionate, open person in life. I find all of these things inspiring.
(oh, and he’s fun.)
Anyway he and the entire cast crushed this season of @succession (for the record, the work is where the story begins and ends for me.) Congrats to them all and bring on the finale!
So, it seems impossible, but somehow everything that came before was just a warm up…my dear friend, work-wife, and all-around wonder @jessicachastain gives her finest, most daring, and most flat-out astonishing performance yet in The @eyesoftammyfaye.
I’m tickled and inspired beyond measure that her ten-year journey toward getting this movie made has resulted with such an unparalleled triumph.
She is off the charts brilliant—go see for yourself!
