A Family Story: Happy and Bo D'Onofrio

This is Happy. He is 4 years old. And the little pup-nugget behind him is Bo, who is roughly 7 years old and adopted just six months ago through SSD.

Yesterday we went over to Happy and Bo's house. We learned that Happy is an extremely leash reactive dog towards other dogs. It's a pretty big issue for Happy and meeting and mingling with other pups is not something that comes easily for him. Actually, it does not really happen at all. In fact, prior to adopting Bo, Happy would easily be labeled as an "only pet" dog. But as you can see in the photo, this is not the case!

So, how did they do it?

Happy's family put in the time and effort. They actually did not know if Happy would be able to accept another dog at home, but when they saw Bo's post they wanted to try to adopt him. And to add to the value of this family's efforts, they had actually been told already that Happy would probably never be able to live with another dog.

Prior to bringing Bo home, Happy's family disclosed all this information to Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, who Bo was with. Because of Bo's sweet and extremely laid back personality, they all agreed to try. At this point, they still weren't sure if things would work. (Really, Happy's skills with other dogs are this difficult.) Happy's family hired a professional for the first introduction. For an entire hour, Happy and Bo stayed outside the house upon VERY FIRST meeting. Happy was walked by the trainer and Bo was walked by Happy's mom. After an hour of working things through with Happy, they were ready to move indoors. (Happy was settled down by this point. But mind you, the initial behavior was there at first, and that must be worked through!) Once inside, Bo and Happy were walked to the back patio and taken off-leash...and the rest is history!!
There have been no incidents between Happy and Bo. They are both extremely friendly and loving dogs with each other and with their family members. Happy is still very leash "aggressive" while out in the world (you can't expect strangers and their dogs to work with you for an hour upon every single meeting). Bo and Happy go on separate walks so they can each be outside according to their needs. Bo gets to frolic around the city park while Happy has a more controlled stroll.

Does this work for all dogs? Of course not. But it just might work for yours! A huge thank you to Bo and Happy's AMAZING family!!

"PELE" to be released in 2016

Finally! Two years later...

IFC Films has acquired North American rights to Imagine Entertainment's PelĂ© biopic, which will apparently be titled "PelĂ©: Birth of a Legend," with plans to release the film in 2016.
The film had been struggling to find a distributor thanks in part to reshoots and a lengthy post-production phase that caused delays (apparently, despite principal photography happening in 2013, the film was only just completed earlier this year); also the sales company repping the film - Exclusive Media - imploded.

The finished product was shopped at Cannes this year, but there were no takers, and one can only wonder why, given that it's a film about, arguably, the greatest footballer of all time, PelĂ© (born Edison Arantes do Nascimento) - a man very well known internationally (even if there may not be as much awareness of him and his accomplishments here in the USA). Add to that, the fact that the film is backed by super producer Brian Grazer's Imagine Entertainment.
I'd guess that the film may have lost some of its luster, since it was originally supposed to premiere prior to the 2014 World Cup, to take advantage of what could've been free advertising, as well as the overall spirit of that summer, which was exciting for sports fans worldwide. But that obviously didn't happen.

“Without the World Cup hype as a marketing tool, soccer movies can be very difficult to sell to audiences,” said one European buyer to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year - a buyer who was initially interested in the film, but, after screening it, felt it was "too art house for mainstream audiences and not mainstream enough to play multiplexes in Europe," as it's a film that I'm sure would likely earn the bulk of its box office outside the USA.

And the recent FIFA corruption scandal probably didn't helping much either.

Jeff and Michael Zimbalist are co-writers and co-directors of the film which, according to Imagine Entertainment, is more of a coming-of-age story that traces PelĂ©'s childhood until he won his first World Cup in Sweden at the age of 17. Leonardo Lima Carvalho plays PelĂ© at age 10 years old, and Kevin de Paula, plays PelĂ© from ages 13 to 17, when he won his first World Cup, in 1958.
Vincent as 'Coach Feola' in PELE.

Vincent D'Onofrio, Rodrigo Santoro, Diego Boneta, Colm Meaney and Seu Jorge all round out the cast of the film. D'Onofrio plays the Brazilian team's coach, Vicente Feola (when they won the 1958 World Cup), while Boneta plays Jose, PelĂ©'s main competition, who also gave him the nickname "PelĂ©" when they were both kids. Seu Jorge plays PelĂ©'s father, Dondinho. And Meaney is the British coach of the Swedish nation team that lost to Brazil in the 1958 World Cup final - George Raynor.

The cast also includes several Brazilian actors in Marianna Nunes, Milton Goncales, Rafael Henrique, Marcus Vinicius, Julio Levy, Thelmo Fernandes, Felipe Simas, and Charles Myara.
The initial 2013 eight-week shoot (Matthew Libatique shot it) took place entirely on PelĂ©’s home turf, in Brazil.

"PelĂ©" is produced by Imagine Entertainment and Seine Pictures, who successfully acquired the rights to PelĂ©'s life story. The film is executive produced by PelĂ© himself, alongside Paul Kemsley for SLI/Legend 10 and Exclusive Media.

With a distributor now attached and a 2016 release date eyed, at least we're not going to have to wait until the next World Cup, which will be hosted by Russia, in 2018, to finally see the film.

Esquire [1995]
"Playing the Heavy"

In the movie Ed Wood, Ed washes up in a Hollywood bar for a miraculous chat with his idel, Orson Welles. The audience is about as amazed as Ed, trying to figure out whether that corpulent gentleman is actually Welles or a Forrest Gump-style computer simulation of him. That it's Vincent D'Onofrio wouldn't be on the tips of many tongues. In his two most startling performances, here and (what seems an actor's lifetime ago) in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, he inhabits the roles so throughly you can't take your eyes off his body, much less remember his name. For Jacket, his first film, he gained forty pounds to play a hapless marine recruit, his newly fatted ass quivering with each fresh assault. (Sarge to Vince: "I will gouge out your eyeballs and skull-fuck you.") D'Onofrio regained the weight to play Welles--forty pounds for one two-minute scene. "I didn't want anyone else to get the part," he says. "and that's what I figured I had to do to get it."

Raised in Brooklyn, D'Onofrio has that wary soft-spokenness we associate with an older generation of Itelian American actors willing to go to extremes. "Most Hollywood actors are lazy and boring and living in delusional worlds," he says. Even a D'Onofrio comedy is serious. In this year's The Ox and the Eye, he and Gregory Hines (talented and nondelusional, in his book) play disabled ex-jocks battling a white-water river. Easier to picture is his new Strange Days, a portrait of a nightmare L.A. patrolled by D'Onofrio, a nighmare L.A. cop.
"I don't want to sound arrogant," the actor says, "but when it comes to the work, I'm there for most anything." That would include the metaphysical hazards of mixing acting with real life in three collaborations with the exquisite Greta Scacchi, now an ex-love and the mother of his child. Fires Within and Desire made good date videos, but The Player was cynical gold-D'Onofrio, the failed screenwriter, ending up facedown in a puddle, and Greta and Tim Robbins living happily ever after. Alas, a fine charactor actor has to be prepared to take the fall, whether he's fat or not. -- JOSEPH HOOPER
