Kate is coming to Netflix and I feel blessed because this looks Cinematic. This September Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays the titular character. Winstead is not new with Action as she had been known for her roles in films like Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and Birds of Prey. This time she is not a love interest nor part of an ensemble. Finally! She the lead actress of an action film. Her experience in Birds of Prey really helped her in the movie. She shines because she looks like a natural as she portrays an Assassin.
My first exposure to my newest interview subject’s work came from the late 80s to the early 90s. I saw Stuart Pankin on both HBO’s Not Necessarily The News, where he played anchorman Bob Charles and many other characters, and ABC’s Dinosaurs, where he provided the voice of Earl Sinclair. As I grew older, I would see Stuart Pankin in movies like Love At Stake and Arachnophobia, and find him to be a very funny talent. My friend and former interview subject Kim Hopkins, who worked with Stuart in The Hollywood Knights, suggested Mr. Pankin to me as a potential interview subject and helped to connect us on social media. I spoke to Stuart on Monday, July 27th, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know him.

EA has made it clear in the past that they haven’t really catered to the open-world genre in the same way that some of their rivals have. Instead, they have focused on titles that involve large multiplayer experiences, making popular franchises such as FIFA, Madden, Battlefield and Dead Space. While they have had open-world games, these have generally been RPG titles from BioWare.
This next interview came about in a rather unusual, but cool, way. As a writer, I normally reach out to the people I want to interview. Sometimes I get a positive response. Other times, the person I want to interview is too busy.
