On our podcast, Br. Tito and I talk all of the time about the importance of story-telling, how entertainment can be a doorway into a deeper experience of our own reality. Movies and television give us opportunities to see and hear what we may never experience in our own world, and yet, through it all, help us learn more about ourselves.
None of this is possible, quite obviously, without the actors that portray the stories. They are the vehicles to this new world. Without them, and without a good performance from them, we fail to suspend our disbelief and fail to leave our own contexts.
This week, we wanted to discuss those actors, men and women, who can tell a story. Who inspires us? Who gives us chills? Who can play any role under the sun?
