News & Photos

Let’s start with the good news, shall we? The good news is that Jesse L. Martin gallery has been updated with some new photos. This is a work in process, so please keep checking back, there’s a bunch more left to add but it just takes some time.

The bad news is, if you haven’t heard already that Jesse’s new show by Marc Cherry (Hallelujah) was not picked up and unfortunately we won’t be seeing it any time soon. It’s very disappointing because the storyline seemed pretty interesting and a bit different to the usual run-of-the-mill TV show. Maybe one day soon we’ll see it picked up by another channel.

In other news though, Jesse is working on a movie called Joyful Noise with Queen Latifah which will be released early next year!

On to the pictures…

They Can Act, But Can They Bowl?

“I’m not a good bowler, I’ve never been a good bowler, I will likely never be a very good bowler,” admitted Bobby Cannavale who, along with other A-list actors, captained a team of lucky donors at Second Stage’s 24th annual All-Star Bowling Classic at Lucky Strike Lanes and Lounge on February 7.

 

Fresh off his first day of rehearsals for Broadway’s The Motherf**ker with the Hat, the actor wasn’t expecting to lead his team to victory, but he did have a more reasonable goal in mind. “I’m hoping to walk away with the award for ‘Most Spirited’ again,” he said of the accolade he took home at last year’s event. “I have that up on my bookshelf, and I’m really proud of it.”

 

So who was going to walk away the night’s big winner? “I’m lookin’ at Anthony Mackie,” Second Stage alum Dylan Baker told Broadway.com. “Come on, he was on the cover of Vanity Fair, now he’s going to come in here and destroy the place.”
