Vincent D'onofrio presents the George Gerkie Cowboy experience with special guest Sam Bisbee. Sam Bisbee will play a special opening set solo-acoustic accompanied by a string quartet, followed by a rare concert (he hasn't performed since 1989) by the legendary George Gerkie. Vincent D'onofrio has worked tirelessly to bring Mr. Gerkie to new york for this rare concert appearance, and Vincent will introduce the evening. The all star band supporting Mr. Gerkie will be led by Joe McGinty featuring Laura Cantrell, Sam Bisbee, Jon Graboff, Steve Goulding, Dan Green and Julian Maile. here is a link to the Joe's Pub site for tickets:

Film Shots

Reminiscing about the films I played character roles alongside my brother, Vincent, Renee Zellweger, Tracy Ullman, Selma Hyack and Ethan Hawke. This came about when I had to put together a bio with pics for promotional materials for my classes. Many of you have seen these pics, although I thought I would share them with you at this time of all the hoopla and sadness over CI. You see like myself, Vincent is truly a character actor. He goes deeply into his roles and brings you characters that you fall in love with or hate with a passion. That is why I understand you all missing Goren so much.

The Chocolate Fetish

I am so excited to announce that a film I produced and acted in five years ago, will be screened at the new Naples International Film Festival. Sunday, November 8th. This was a collaborative art with the writer/director Lis Anna. We are so proud of our little film.

The Chocolate Fetish is a Telluride Indie Fest and Key West Indie Fest Short Film Winner. It was also screened at The River Run Film Festival in Winston/Salem, NC and Cannes Film Market.

Family Affairs

I don't usually get into my brothers affairs, but everyone seems really up in arms about Law and Order: CI. I don't know what the production company is saying, but I did hear on the radio that they are saying that they gave Vincent and Kathryn the boot. All I know is that during a family vacation my brother told us that he wasn't renewing his contract. That he wanted to move on from the character, Goren. He was very grateful to be able to build such a wonderful character, but it was time. He also said that CI will be bringing him and Erbe back for special episodes in the future. Jeff Goldblum is doing a great job, and I wish him the best of luck.

Also, for those of you that have family members that need looking after but you can't afford in home care, there is a website called, "Friendly Jingle", its a group of folks who make daily calls and check up on the elderly and give them someone to talk to and something to look forward to every day.. its about $1 a day.
