Hope Davis

Hope Davis (born March 23, 1964) is an American actress. She has starred in more than 20 feature films, including About Schmidt, Flatliners, Mumford, American Splendor and Next Stop Wonderland.

Davis, second of three children, was born in Englewood, New Jersey, the daughter of Joan, a librarian, and William Davis, an engineer. Davis has described her mother as a "great storyteller" who would take Davis and her siblings to museums or to "something cultural" every Sunday after church. Davis graduated in 1982 from Tenafly High School in Tenafly, New Jersey, and was a childhood friend of Mira Sorvino, with whom she wrote and acted in backyard plays.

She is married to actor Jon Patrick Walker. They have two children, Georgia (born August 31, 2002) and Mae (born December 30, 2004).

Davis majored in cognitive science at Vassar College, but then became an actress in independent films such as The Daytrippers (1995) and Next Stop Wonderland (1998). These led her to roles in Hollywood films such as the thriller Arlington Road (1999), and About Schmidt (2002). In 2003, she starred opposite Paul Giamatti in the movie adaptation of the Harvey Pekar comic American Splendor as the comic book version of Pekar's real-life wife, Joyce Brabner. For this role, Davis won the New York Film Critics Circle award and was nominated for the Golden Globe.

She will return to the stage in 2009, appearing in Broadway's God of Carnage with Marcia Gay Harden, James Gandolfini and Jeff Daniels.

Hope is co-starring as the charming and self-deprecating "Mia" with Golden Globe winner, Gabriel Byrne in the second season (2009) of HBO's In Treatment, a drama that tracks the backstory and progress of five clients during their series of psychological therapeutic sessions. Mia portrays a successful unmarried malpractice attorney who returns to therapy after a 20-year absence, because of the ongoing pattern of a lack of stability in her personal life.

Arlington Road

Arlington Road film.jpg

Arlington Road is a 1999 film which tells the story of a widowed George Washington University professor who suspects his new neighbors are involved in terrorism and becomes obsessed with foiling their terrorist plot. The film stars Jeff Bridges, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, and Hope Davis and is directed by Mark Pellington. Ehren Kruger wrote the script, which won the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' (AMPAS) Nicholl Fellowship in 1996. This was to have been originally released by Polygram Filmed Entertainment but was sold to Sony Pictures Entertainment before it opened. The eventual release was the first title for Screen Gems while Polygram handled foreign rights.

Michael Faraday (Jeff Bridges) is a college history professor at the George Washington University who has been raising his nine-year-old son, Grant, since the untimely death of his FBI agent wife, who was killed in the line of duty in a scene loosely based on the real-life Ruby Ridge incident. Somewhat of a specialist regarding American terrorism, Michael starts to become suspicious of his new suburban neighbors, Oliver (Tim Robbins) and Cheryl Lang (Joan Cusack), whom he's just met after taking their son, Brady, to the emergency room following a reported fireworks accident.

At first his suspicions are based on little things such as Oliver's architectural blueprints that seem to be for something other than the shopping mall he claims he's building, as well as pieces of mail that contradict where Oliver said he attended college. Neither his girlfriend and former student, Brooke Wolfe (Hope Davis), nor his wife's former FBI partner, Whit Carver, believe any of his wild theories.

Michael continues to uncover what could be possible evidence and becomes even more wary of Oliver and Cheryl. Michael's girlfriend, Brooke, casually spots Oliver and follows his car after witnessing a suspicious package delivery in a garage. Her trail ends up in the headquarters of a mail delivery company from where she decides to call Michael and leave a message, finally accepting his fears as founded; unfortunately, after hanging up, she turns around and stumbles on Cheryl who had obviously heard the whole message - the disturbing mixture of feelings in her expression, denoting both cold resolve and pity at having to murder Brooke, earned Joan Cusack special acclaim from most reviews. Brooke's murder, which happens off-screen, is covered it up by making it look like Brooke died in a car crash. Michael realizes this after finding out, after a few days, that at least two voice messages were left in his answering machine and then erased by someone else. Eventually the conspirators use a field trip with a Scouts-style organization to keep Faraday's son Grant as an unknowing hostage. Faraday rents a car the next day and follows the van his son is in, which eventually leads him to the FBI headquarters.

Faraday forces his car into a secure parking garage, only to discover that he has followed the wrong van into the parking garage. Attempting to calm Faraday, Whit informs him that he is the only person not cleared to be in the garage. Realizing his mistake too late, Faraday rushes to the trunk of his rental car, opening it to reveal a hidden bomb just seconds before it explodes, killing Faraday, Whit, and 184 others. Posthumously, he is vilified as a terrorist seeking revenge for his wife's death. The Langs get away scot-free, and Grant, now orphaned, ends up living with relatives, not knowing of his father's innocence. It becomes obvious that Scobee, another man who was accused of blowing up an IRS building in St. Louis, was set up exactly the same way as Michael.

The film was initially released on October 26, 1999 to Columbia TriStar Home Video. The DVD was reissued in Superbit on February 12, 2002 to Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.

Daniels was born in Athens, Georgia and grew up in Chelsea, Michigan, where his father, Robert Lee Daniels, still owns the local lumber yard. He was raised Methodist. Daniels attended Central Michigan University and participated in their theater program before dropping out during his junior year to move to New York City. His first performance in New York was in The Shortchanged Review (1979) at Second Stage Theatre. It was the first show of the inaugural season for Second Stage Theatre.

Daniels has starred in a number of New York productions, on and off Broadway. On Broadway, he has appeared in Lanford Wilson's Redwood Curtain, A. R. Gurney's The Golden Age and Wilson's Fifth of July, for which he won a Drama Desk Award for Best Supporting Actor.

He will return to the stage in 2009, appearing in Broadway's God of Carnage with Marcia Gay Harden, Hope Davis and James Gandolfini.

In 1986, Daniels moved his home to the town where he and his wife grew up, Chelsea, Michigan. Five years later, he founded the regionally-acclaimed Purple Rose Theatre Company, a non-profit professional theatre company. He is currently Executive Director of PRTC, and has written 11 plays for the company.

Although primarily a dramatic actor, Daniels has also been cast in other genres such as the 2002 suspense thriller Blood Work and in the 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber as Harry Dunne, Lloyd Christmas' best friend. Daniels portrayed Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain in Gettysburg, as well as the prequel Gods and Generals.

Most notably, Daniels is also known for his roles in movies such as Speed, Terms of Endearment, My Favorite Martian (film), Gettysburg, Arachnophobia, Because of Winn-Dixie, and The Squid and the Whale. More recently, he appeared in the movie RV with Robin Williams. He continues to act and will appear in more upcoming movies.

Additionally, Daniels has appeared on SNL, in addition to a variety of television talk shows such as Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

He has focused on recording a number of songs that he has written throughout his life, apparently marking key moments. He has kept busy with frequent gigs and two full length albums, Grandfather's Hat and Jeff Daniels Live and Unplugged.

Daniels and his family reside in Chelsea, Michigan. He wrote, directed, and starred in Escanaba in da Moonlight and Super Sucker with Purple Rose Films. He was inducted into the Michigan Walk of Fame on May 25, 2006 in Lansing, Michigan.

He married Treado on Friday the 13th because he wore the number 13 on his baseball uniform. Daniels is a baseball fan who follows the Detroit Tigers and is also an avid Detroit Red Wings fan. He likes maple, but has a violent aversion to golden, syrup. This results in pleasurable consumption of maple sugar candies and alternative french toast toppings.

Daniels has appeared as the TV spokesperson for the Michigan Economic Development Corporation promoting Michigan's effectiveness in bringing in new companies, featured on CNBC.

The Weather Man

The Weather Man is a 2005 American comedy-drama film, directed by Gore Verbinski and starring Nicolas Cage. The film is about David Spritz (Cage), a successful weatherman on a Chicago news program, who is seen by both others and himself as a failure in all areas of life outside his career. The film was written by Steven Conrad.

Chicago weatherman David Spritz (Nicolas Cage) spends his time in a daze. His job pays well, but he finds it unsatisfactory that it doesn't require much except to speak and point, and the weather forecasts he reads are often inaccurate. While he's a local celebrity, his fans are not kind to him; once every few months people throw fast food at him. He also remarks that people don't like him because he has low self-esteem and people who do like him like him because he's on TV.

He is separated from his wife Noreen (Hope Davis) with the possibility of either reconciliation or divorce. He and her new lover Russ (Michael Rispoli) have an openly antagonistic relationship.

Dave feels inferior to his father Robert Spritzel (Michael Caine), a Pulitzer Prize-winning author. Robert has lymphoma and possibly only a short time to live; he deals with that in a quiet, dignified manner. Robert is concerned with Dave's apparent inability to grow up, while Dave is anxious to redeem himself in his father's eyes.

Dave has recently applied for a position as the weatherman on a national show called "Hello America" which is hosted by Bryant Gumbel, and represents a much, much higher salary than the already high salary Dave has, but also would mean a relocation for himself and possibly his whole family (provided he can reconcile with Noreen) Dave sees this job opportunity as a final way to prove himself to his father and make him proud before he passes away.

Dave has a 12-year-old daughter Shelly (Gemmenne de la Peña) who smokes and is obese and teased by her classmates, who call her "camel toe" because her genitals show through her tight clothing. While picking up Shelly from her dance lessons, Spritz flashes back to a time where he bought her expensive archery lessons, which his daughter quickly lost interest in. Dave also has a 15-year-old son Mike (Nicholas Hoult) who has had some trouble with the law concerning drug use. Mike is creepily befriended by his rehab counselor Don (Gil Bellows), who is very generous. However, it is suggested that Don has a sexual interest in Mike. Don suggests that he take photos of Mike from time to time to document his progress in bodybuilding. Mike agrees, and allows Don to take photos of him shirtless.

Dave attempts to reconnect with Noreen by going to a group therapy session for couples, performing tasks like catching the other when they fall backwards and the like in order to build trust. Dave ruins the entire ordeal, however, when a task comes up in which each person is told to write something about their partner that they always hated on a piece of note paper, give the note to their partner, and then never read the note they've received in order to show trust to one another. Dave sneaks into the bathroom during a break and reads Noreen's note about him, then later confronts her about it, infuriating her and initiating a very bad argument.

As he becomes more and more unnerved, Dave decides to use up the remaining archery lessons he purchased for his daughter by himself, finding it gives him peace and quiet and also an activity which builds his focus.

When "Hello America" invites Dave to interview with them in New York, he decides to bring along Shelly since he has not yet had a chance to talk with her about her classmates calling her "camel toe." Also coming along is his father seeking a second opinion on his lymphoma from a doctor in New York. While trying to talk to Shelley about the name-calling, Dave finds himself unable to, and so instead remedies the problem by buying her a bunch of new clothing (mostly dresses) so that she will not be called "camel toe" anymore. It is later revealed over the phone to Dave, however, that back in Chicago, Mike has punched Don in the face; Robert claims that Don wanted to perform oral sex on Mike, while Don claims that Mike wanted to steal his wallet. Compounding everything, Dave's father, Robert, tells him that the second opinion he sought turned out no different, and that he has only months to live. Sad and depressed, Dave stays up all night drinking, and appears in no shape to perform well on his "Hello America" interview the next morning. Surprisingly enough, however, he performs just fine and manages to really impress his interviewers.

When Dave returns to Chicago, he finds that because he was in New York City interviewing with Hello America and unable to help with Mike's problem, Russ has stepped in in his absence. Although Dave is interested in Mike's well-being, he does not even let Russ finish his account, and slaps him in the face with his gloves, apparently because he cannot stand that Russ is now the person dealing with Mike's problems, and further infuriating his wife Noreen, and worrying his father as well. Later Dave beats Don up in a rage to try and rectify the situation. Mike is relieved to find out from his father that Don won't press charges, particularly after Dave's violent confrontation. Robert also approves of Dave's defense of his son.

Dave is offered a place on Hello America that requires a move to New York. He hesitates, since he would be far away from Noreen and their children, unless the family is reunited, and they can also move to New York.

The family decides to hold a living funeral for Robert to give friends and family members a chance to say the things about him they'd like to while he is still around to hear it. Dave tells Noreen that he has been offered the job on "Hello America" and asks her for a final time if she will reconcile with him, only to find out she has decided to marry Russ. On top of all this, due to a power failure, Dave is forced to abort his speech to his father after only saying: "When I think of my dad, I think of Bob Seger's "Like a Rock," robbing him of what he perceived to be his last chance to say something that would make his father proud and happy.

Later, however, Robert flags Dave down in his car, plays the Bob Seger song he'd mentioned earlier, and asks Dave to explain his remark. Dave explains that he feels Robert has always been strong and stands "proud and tall, high above it all", as in the song. As the pressure has really gotten to Dave at this point, he breaks down in tears telling his father that he was offered the "Hello America" job, but that his wife will be marrying Russ. Robert consoles Dave, by telling him that not everything in life goes as we'd like, and that he really is proud of his son, especially for being able to land the "Hello America" position.

Soon afterward Dave accepts the job, and soon after that, Robert dies. Dave's former resentment for his fans, a reflection of his own low self-esteem, has gone away now that he has gained his father's approval and learned to accept and be happy with his life. He does the weather during the weekdays, and goes back to Chicago on the weekends to visit Mike and Shelly. People do not throw things at him anymore, though he muses that this may be a pleasant side-effect of his archery hobby, for which he carries a bow around.

The Weather Man received mixed reviews gaining an overall score of 58% on Rotten Tomatoes and 60 on Metacritic.

The movie was released in North America on October 28, 2005 and ran for nearly eight weeks (precisely 54 days). It grossed $12,482,775 domestically and $6,556,995 at the foreign box office, a total of $19,039,770.

Final (2001 film)

Final is a 2001 science fiction film directed by Campbell Scott. It stars Denis Leary, Hope Davis, J. C. MacKenzie, Jim Gaffigan, Jim Hornyak, and Maureen Anderman.

The main character, Bill, played by Leary, wakes up from a coma in a psychiatric hospital. He is suffering from delusions that he is about to be executed by a futuristic society which has unfrozen him from the past. However, under Hope Davis's care as Ann, his psychiatrist, he starts remembering trauma from his pre-coma life, including the death of his father, a break up with his fiance, and a drunken binge while driving. He begins to recover from his mental breakdown yet his delusions do not cease. As the truth unravels, the viewer comes to find out that his delusions may be closer to the truth than the reality he was told of by his care-givers.

The movie features a very quiet, bleak atmosphere. There are few characters, with the great majority of dialogue and on-screen time taken up by Denis Leary and Hope Davis. Leary's character is given an electric guitar as a means to pacify him. Several short cut-scenes feature Leary playing intricate and beautiful blues-style guitar solos.

Joyce Brabner

Brought to Light (Comprising "Shadowplay: The Secret Team" and "Flashpoint: The LA Penca Bombing" (Eclipse Comics)

Joyce Brabner (born March 1, 1952) is a writer of political comics and sometimes collaborator with her husband Harvey Pekar.

Living "in Delaware working with people in prison, with kids in trouble," running a non-profit culture-based support program for inmates in the Delaware correctional system, she became friendly with "two sometime artists who were very involved in comic fandom," which "seemed like a lot of fun." Feeling burned out from "working with courts, with sexual abusers of children and so on," Brabner began working with Tom Watkins, who "was doing a lot of costumes for the Phil Seuling comic shows." Moonlighting "as a costumer while continuing to work in the prison programs had organized on own," while not spending much time at conventions or comic shops, she nevertheless eventually became co-owner of a comic book (and theatrical costumes) store herself.

Her store stocked Harvey Pekar's American Splendor, but when the store "ran out of an issue" (one of Brabner's partners selling the last copy of American Splendor #6 without her getting a chance to read it), Brabner sent Pekar a postcard directly, asking for a copy, and the two "began to correspond." Developing a phone relationship, after a stay in the hospital by Brabner, Pekar spoke to her daily and sent her a collection of old records.

She was a founder and manager of "The Rondo Hatton Center for the Deforming Arts," a small theater space in Wilmington, Delaware. (Hatton played horror roles — The Creeper — in the early 1940s without makeup because he was severely disfigured by a glandular disease.) She is a cultural worker and liberal social activist, most recently championing Coventry Village in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, the neighborhood in which she and Pekar reside. To aid Coventry Village, she has organized a series of imaginative special events — A Celebration of Coventry — since 2007, in association with the Unitarian Universalist Society of Coventry/Cleveland Heights.

On their second date, they bought rings, and the third date they tied the knot. With the benefit of hindsight, she believes that it was Pekar's honesty that attracted her to him, crediting his work on "American Splendor a worm's-eye view of what his other marriages were like," allowing for a greater degree of understanding and openness between the two of them. It is Brabner's second marriage and Pekar's third.

The gimmick worked, and they "picked up nine distributors for the book!" The comic began to be profitable, and one of Brabner's dolls "ended up on 'The David Letterman Show.'" She still makes them occasionally for charity auctions.

In addition to Pekar and American Splendor, Brabner has worked with many of independent comics' highest-profile writers and artists. She edited Eclipse's Real War Stories, which brought Mike W. Barr, Steve Bissette, Brian Bolland, Rebecca Huntington, Paul Mavrides, Dean Motter, Denny O'Neil and John Totleben (among others) together on behalf of the Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors and Citizen Soldier.

Stymied in initial attempts to bring the matter to court, the initial investigators required an outside organization, bringing in the Christic Institute. "People at Christic had seen Real War Stories #1" and in trying to raise funds to investigate and document facts and allegations surrounding the "very complicated" story, turned to Brabner "and asked if I could communicate this very complex story in comic book form." Faced with "two ways the stories could be told," Brabner remembers she decided to utilize both.

Warner Books "was interested in the project from the beginning," thinking that they could be involved from the start in a book on the Iran-Contra affair, which could, says Brabner, have been "as big as Watergate." Caution overtook enthusiasm, however, when "it became clear that this story was a lot bigger than everybody thought it was." Although thoroughly scrutinised - and Brabner says that she "was told at the time by Warner's attorneys that our sources were solid and our book would fly" - she believes that Warner "realized this wasn't going to be the enormous trial, or victory, they thought it would be." Ultimately, Brought to Light was published solely by Eclipse.

Her newest work can be found in Jason Rodriguez' "Postcards" series, as well as an anthology (with Pekar, Ed Piskor and others) on the Beat Generation, due in 2008.

In addition, Brabner is working on another nonfiction comic book with Ray Dobbins (The Colombian Arts Council Grant) to be published by Farrar, Strauss and Giroux. With Pekar, she will be appearing as herself in an opera performed by Real Time Opera in January, 2009. The event will be broadcast on the Internet from Oberlin College on January 31, 2009. Also anticipated is the couple's first autobiographical comic book work together since Our Cancer Year-- Harvey and Joyce's Big Book of Marriage.

In the early 1990s, Brabner and Pekar become guardians of a young girl, Danielle Batone, become a recurring character in American Splendor, alongside Pekar's diverse cast of family and friends.

Brabner was portrayed by actress Hope Davis in the film adaptation of American Splendor (2003), and also appeared as herself in some scenes.

Marcia Gay Harden (born August 14, 1959) is an Academy Award and Saturn Award-winning, as well as Tony Award and Emmy Award-nominated American actress.

Harden, one of five children, was born in La Jolla, California, the daughter of Beverly (née Bushfield), a housewife, and Thaddeus Harold Harden, a Iceland native who was an officer in the Navy. One of her siblings is also named Thaddeus. Harden's family frequently moved because of her father's job, living in Japan, Germany, Greece, California and Maryland. She graduated from Surrattsville High School in Clinton, Maryland in 1977, the University of Texas at Austin with a BA in theatre, and the graduate theatre program at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts with a Master of Fine Arts.

Harden debuted on Broadway in Tony Kushner's Angels in America in 1993, for which she received a Tony Award nomination (Best Featured Actress in a Play) as Harper Pitt (and others). For her film work, she won a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for playing painter Lee Krasner in Pollock (2000), and was nominated in the same category for Mystic River (2003).
