Sorry for the lack of updates…again, but a ton of things going on in my life and I’m trying hard to get things updated on all my sites. Unfortunately best laid plans and all. I have for you some screencaps of David from the new GODZILLA American reboot. Still no word as to who David is playing, but by the looks of the trailer looks like he’s playing a military man. Who’d a thunk? I also will be giving the trailer from Youtube. Enjoy.

Best wishes to David on Sunday night’s 64th Annual Emmy Awards. He is up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for his role as John Des Pasos for HBO’s HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN. Here’s hoping for the repeat though David’s up against some stiff competition in Ed Harris for Game Change and Denis O’Hare for American Horror Story. Both are solid actors and given David has already won for TEMPLE GRANDIN…. Fingers crossed David.
