Hollywood assistants have always been underpaid, but this is different

One of my first jobs in Hollywood was as an assistant. It was 1994. I was just finishing film school, and felt lucky to get a job working for two busy producers. I spent my days answering phones, reading scripts and making copies. It wasn’t glamorous, but it was exactly the position I knew I needed, learning how the business works. My assistant salary1 was enough to pay rent, buy groceries, and see all the movies I could. I wrote on nights and weekends. Like every assistant I knew, I aspired to...

Clippers’ fiery guard Patrick Beverley: Kawhi Leonard is cool, but he’s ‘not quiet’

LOS ANGELES — What happens when you put Patrick Beverley, one of the planet’s truly intense people, on a court beside Kawhi Leonard, the superstar known as much for his stoicism as his incredible skillset? Basketball, Beverley said, because, “he’s not quiet.” “He’s a really dope dude, man,” Beverley said of Leonard, who is expected to suit up Thursday for the second time since signing with the Clippers. They face the Dallas Mavericks in their preseason finale in Vancouver. Beverley, who previous...

On Opposites

I was able to spend a little time in Los Angeles recently which meant that I was able to have some really decent Korean food and stuff my face absolutely silly. This is probably the saddest fact about San Francisco — we’re still missing a quality (and decently-priced) spot in The City. But, I think folks are starting to notice because I heard of a new joint that just opened up a month or so ago! Time to get eatin’! The topic of conversation for the evening was on how oppos...

Big Sky This Week: Just Keep Shining

I In a week of quiet skies, the most important planetary connection is a fleeting one: the Sun’s square to Pluto (Monday, Oct. 14, 0:34 am PDT). It’s quick and it happens twice each year, so it’s rarely of long-term consequence in and of itself. But if you’ve got a lot of old, dried-up kindling lying around, this is the match that can light it into a roaring brush fire. Here’s how Pluto appeared in my world today. I read that Alex Trebek, longtime host of the TV quiz show Jeopardy, has had a r...

LA Opera goes Broadway musical with ‘Light in the Piazza’

The banners on the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion say Los Angeles Opera. But the company’s current production of Adam Guettel’s “The Light in the Piazza” is a Broadway musical through and through. Based on the novella by Elizabeth Spencer, the show (direct from its London engagement at the Royal Festival Hall) is as light and airy as a spring day in Florence with a few dark family secrets held in reserve for suspense and conflict. It may not be an opera, but the cast does feature a genuine operatic s...
