Interplayers has called a press conference for Wednesday, April 5, to announce some sort of one-time project in support of the theater involving Ellen Travolta and Jack Bannon.
Says Travolta, "Everyone knows it's hard times over there. That board of directors — they're trying to do a job that some people spend their entire careers learning how to do. God bless 'em — we need good theater around here. They're working hard to keep it going over there."
Ellen had just gotten off the phone with some brother of hers who apparently has something to do with Hollywood.
I think his name is Vinnie Barbarino.
Anyway, John's in *Lonely Hearts* with James Gandolfini as two detectives who do some detecting that leads to the executions in 1953 of the Lonely Hearts Killers -- two lovers (played by Jared Leto and Salma Hayek) who duped WW2 widows using personal ads, then killed 'em. (Like about 20 of them.) ... AND the movie may be shown at the Cannes Film Festival in late May and Ellen just might be going along, "since I have a nice part in it, playing his sister."
