James Cagney was one of those legendary stars who had little if any formal acting education. He was a self-described song-and-dance man who thought of acting this way,"There`s not much to say about acting but this. Never settle back on your heels. Never relax. If you relax, the audience relaxes. And always mean everything you say." We saw that on the screen with every Cagney movie. And, it;s an important lesson to learn.
I did a website testimonial over the weekend. It was the quickest and easiest money I have made in a while. PERCEPTION is looking at the beginning of the year for my scene as a wheelchair bound DA. Director John Pocino and I were interviewed by Creative Loafing.

When acting stopped being exciting - and he had all the money he thought he would need - he stopped working. "..Faces" is a gem that people often forget.

Big Cagney fan! I still believe his role as Lon Chaney Sr. in "The Man of a Thousand Faces" was one of his best.
