Aldis Hodge: It's All Going to Be Okay

To say Aldis Hodge's career is heating up right now is a massive understatement. This moment, for him, can be more aptly described as "being in hyperspace". He is currently shooting season two of Showtime's City on a Hill, where he goes toe to toe with Kevin Bacon. He recently wrapped a season of his rebooted TNT series, Leverage. And he is preparing to enter the DC Universe, opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, playing Hawkman in the highly anticipated comic-inspired Black Adam. He was on short lists for an Oscar nomination for his work in the death row indie film, Clemency, and his upcoming festival favorite, One Night in Miami is already on early Oscar watch lists for next year. Other notable roles include MC Ren in Straight Outta Compton, Levi Jackson in Hidden Figures and Noah on the WGN America series Underground. On top of all of that, Hodge's passion for horology led him to bet on himself as an entrepreneur, creating a watch company that aims to stand out from the crowd. But Hodge was not born on Easy Street. His victories have been hard fought and his struggles have been real, including a stint where he and his brother lived with their mother, out of a car. He does not mince words and he brought the same fierce truth, and humor, to our conversation that he brings to his work as an actor.

Lorraine Bracco: You Have to Make the Oatmeal Every Morning

Lorraine Bracco has been nominated for an Academy Award as well as multiple Golden Globes and Emmy Awards. She was a major force in one of the greatest films of all time, Goodfellas and one of the greatest TV shows of all time, The Sopranos. She has won multiple Screen Actors Guild Awards and even has her own show on HGTV, the hilarious and heartfelt My Big Italian Adventure. But at the end of the day, when I asked her how she's lasted the test of time in one of the toughest industries around, including weathering two divorces, she said, "you have to make the oatmeal every morning." I've known her for almost 20 years, worked with her on two shows and never caught even a pretentious millisecond from her. She's beautiful, makes me laugh, tells it like it is and gives me some backstory on Goodfellas before we exchange our own personal stories about the late, great James Gandolfini and his tremendous talent and heart.
