Emmy Award Winner Tom Skerritt, You Can Do It, Ya Just Gotta Keep Moving

I'm super psyched about this week's guest, none other than Emmy Award Winner Tom Skerritt. You might know him from his iconic roles in Top Gun, The River Runs Through It, Alien, M*A*S*H*, and Picket Fences. We chat about his humble beginnings in Detroit, to his first films with none other than Robert Redford, Sydney Pollack and Robert Altman.


Tom's love for art and creativity have lead him to start the company Triple Squirrels and the EVRGRN channel, focusing on sharing stories that bring us inspiration, light and hope. This conversation is one that all young actors can learn from, about how to approach their art and how to keep a positive attitude in such an up and down career, as Tom says "just keep movin' kid, just keep movin'...."

Creating Boundaries

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss the fact that, while everyone loves to talk about the end results (red carpets, accolades, etc) you can only reach those milestones if you create boundaries for yourself long before anyone else can fathom the dream within your head as being a reality. People that surround you, even ones that love you, will usually not see the visions you hold for yourself in your heart until you will them into existence... which is a lot easier said than done. This discussion is a starting point.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts. If you’ve been knocked down... get up, dust yourself off, and get back in the arena.

Fall Back on Your Training

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, I addressed one of the young actors who was in a groove, explaining that when you are in a groove, you don't need a ton of instruction... instinct carries the day and almost anything you do will turn to gold. But when you hit those inevitable walls that we all hit, you need to do what our tech advisor on Wind River, a war vet, told me he did when he was fired upon and in jeopardy of being killed: fall back on your training. That requires training even when it's not the thing you want to do.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.
