I found this on IMDB: (Dec.17th)
[quote]Does anyone know how David S. is, and what made him feel so bad they had to bring down the curtain and replace him in the middle of a scene in yesterday's performance of the THE HEIRESS on Broadway? Reportedly, it happened during a scene where his character was feeling ill, but David the actor truly was sidelined by illness. Hope he's better soon!
Anyone have the scoop?
great actor! Loved him in "Delores Clairborne"
I love David!!! I hope it was just a bug and he is better.
There has been both flu and flu-related stomach bugs going around NYC over the last month, so that could be it.
Or he just couldn't take Chastain's lousy performance any longer.
Why, exactly, is there a Jessica Chastain?
What a useless hair box.
I'll nurse his hot ass back to health. I'll start with a tongue bath and then...
In the first season of "Alphas" he was styled quite needlessly to look like an old man. They stopped that in the second season.
I love him, but his character on "Alphas" is unbearable. All the characters are, and the writing is horrible. I only watch it for the camp value.
I remember him "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd." Anyone else a fan of that propgram?
I love Alphas.
It could use some improvement- and I agree Strathairn's character needed to be less doddering, but if they invest in it- it could be a great show.
I hope it comes back.
R7 yes, oh yes. I watched that all the time in high school.
(Despite it obviously being aimed at an older audience.)
I thought he was megasexy then, and still do now.
"I didn't ask for the ANAL probe."
I love PASSION FISH, but to see him in all his near-naked glory, watch A MAP OF THE WORLD sometime, which also has terrific performances by Sigourney Weaver and Julianne Moore (even though the film weakens in the 2nd half due to bad directing).
Loved him in "Good Night and Good Luck" and "Eight Men Out."
So has anybody else heard of his being ill?
I thought the DL broadway queens would be all over it.
He's over 60 and not a diva, so the DL Broadway queens can't be bothered.
I heard he shit his pants on stage.
Jesus r21, that's not funny. Go away.
He's got eyelashes women would kill for- always looks like he has on eyeliner.
LOVE Good Night and Good Luck. I've always been of fan, but he was never handsome to me until seeing that film.
He was featured in a Vogue spread in the January 2012 issue:
That is such a bizarre spread, r24. But he's smoking hot in it.
He will turn 64 on 1/26/2013. He is still smoking hot.
R7/R15, we should.
OH! That was YOU that was the OTHER viewer of Molly Dodd! LOL
I seriously CRIED a little when I found out they were posted on YouTube.
Plays Lincoln's Secretary of State Seward opposite Daniel Day Lewis.
Will he get a Supporting Actor nomination?
I hope David is not ill. I checked his IMDB page and he has nothing listed for 2013. I know The Heiress ends in February, and he probably Alphas. It's strange he has nothing else.
R27 -- back when the show was running as first run episodes I used to send videocassettes to a penpal in Europe who was absolutely smitten with the series! Molly Dodd's mom was a hoot! The show defined quirkiness!
No, R28. The Supporting Actor nomination for LINCOLN will definitely go to Tommy Lee Jones.
How is it that we're not discussing his sexuality? Did the DL have a collective stroke?
We've discussed his sexuality in the past. Definitely straight.
R31 is right - Jones had the more showboating role in LINCOLN, along with James Spader. But it never hurts to have a hit Speilberg film on your resume.
His last name conjures the sensation of having a hair stuck in your teeth that keeps grazing your tongue and making you gag.
I think he looks ill in that Vogue spread. He's smaller and thinner than the woman!
He's one of my favorite actors. I wish they'd release The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd on dvd.
Well, the TV show "Alphas" has been officially cancelled. David has plenty of time to do theatre this year.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
