Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough said Thursday that President Donald Trump’s rambling, stream of consciousness interview with the New York Times sounds like “William Faulkner on acid.“I mean the sentences just keep going on, but they’re garbled and make absolutely no sense,” the host said, referring to the Nobel Prize laureate’s distinctive writing style.“Well, John McCain, obviously a giant in Washington, D.C., but he’s been a giant in American life for a very long time and he served his entire adult life for the American people,” Scarborough said.

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Star Andy Serkis to Awards Voters: I’m a Real ActorWhether as Gollum in the “Lord of the Rings” movies, King Kong in Peter Jackson’s version of the giant-ape flick or the chimpanzee leader Caesar in the three recent “Planet of the Apes” movies, Serkis has become the face of performance-capture technology, always alongside the visual-effects artists at the New Zealand-based Weta Digital.“War for the Planet of the Apes,” the new film in which Serkis stars as an angry Caesar who faces off against a brutal human colonel played by Woody Harrelson, may well be the most astonishing example to date of what performance capture can achieve.For every large-scale battle scene, there are half a dozen startling dialogue scenes shot almost entirely in close-up.The last in a trilogy that began with 2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and also included 2014’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” the new movie is one of the year’s best, both a thrilling action movie and a poignant character study.The fact that most of its characters are simian rather than human doesn’t make them any less indelible — but it might make Serkis and his co-stars a little less likely to reap acting awards for their efforts, a sad state of affairs that we definitely got around to discussing.Not long ago, you posted a video on Facebook [below] in which your face morphs into Caesar’s as he’s talks about how a better world could emerge out of the carnage, “a world dedicated to freedom, tolerance and justice.”For years, we’ve been having a conversation about why the Oscars and other acting awards never recognize performance-capture acting.Without being disparaging in any way, shape or form to animators, the actor is the sole driver of character, not a committee of animators.When people say to me, “Do you do the voice of Gollum?” or “Do you do the voice of Caesar?” it’s like, “Are you kidding me?” We’re on the set for months playing these roles — it’s not like we stroll into a voice booth for a couple of hours and talk into a microphone while someone video references us.There’s no special skill to doing what we all do in the “Apes” movies, whether it’s Steve Zahn playing Bad Ape or Terry Notary playing Rocket or Karin Konoval playing Maurice.Performance capture has had this mystery attached to it for so many years, because somewhere along the line people started believing that the performance is enhanced.In that film, human language was used in a very direct, emotional way — staccato sounds and staccato words worked very well.Every single day was an intense experience, whether it was emotional, physical, the snowy conditions, the pouring rain in that bleak concentration-camp set …Read original story ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Star Andy Serkis to Awards Voters: I’m a Real Actor At TheWrap

By MICHAEL COOPER - Monday Jun 12, 2017
With assassination at its core, Shakespeare’s play is fraught. Totalitarian governments have banned it. And yes, it has inspired violence.
