Old School Audition Polaroids Show Famous Actors When They Weren’t Famous

The vast majority of famous actors started out as not-so-famous. Only a few were famous as kids and stayed that way into adulthood. But for the rest, they had to go through the same grind that all actors in Hollywood do: dozens and hundreds of auditions, and often just as many rejections.

Back in the day, casting director Mali Finn revealed some of the famous actors he auditioned in the past. Check out the photos below, which include, among others, Ben Stiller, Benicio Del Toro, and Billy Bob Thornton, who looks nothing like an actor in his photo.

Finn, who cast movies such as Titanic, The Matrix, and Green Mile, passed away in 2007 at the age of 69.

Tools & Craft #44: We’re Hosting the Festool Road Show This Saturday in Brooklyn

I like to talk about tools and craft period, so I try not to make these posts too sales-like. But at the same time I do sell tools for a living, and Core77 has covered Festool a fair bit, so I thought this was relevant.

This Saturday, Tools for Working Wood is hosting the Festool Roadshow in Brooklyn. This is where the company sends a giant trailer full of tools and demonstration workstations so that people can try them out and ask questions of the dedicated trainers they send.

It’s also a great opportunity to meet with our own knowledgeable TFWW sales staff, as we ourselves use Festool to construct our display cases and furniture. Talk with them or us about service, availability, speed of delivery and our own experiences with the brand.

We’ll have on hand new tools for 2017, including the new knockdown Domino connectors (which Core77 wrote up), and of course we’ll have all the saws, sanders, drills, dust extraction systems, et cetera. In my experience these products really do make work more efficient, more accurate and cleaner, which is why I sell them.

The event is of course free, and we’ll also have loads of free food, beverages and gift bags for attendees. (If your family doesn’t want to come with you, read the two paragraphs down at the bottom.)

Details:

Saturday, April 29th
10am – 2:30pm
112 26th Street, Brooklyn, NY

Parking is available under the expressway. The subway (R train to 25th Street in Brooklyn) is only 2 1/2 blocks away. We’re not far from the Long Island Rail Road Atlantic terminal.

By the way, we know that a lot of you are coming from some distance. Whether you come alone or bring your family, Green-Wood Cemetery is three blocks away; the entrance is on 25th Street and 5th Avenue, and the cemetery, which was set up to be park-like, should be looking lovely. It is considered one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the US. For any members of your family who aren’t interested in Festool, it would be a wonderful walk and some coffee and pastry at the bakery across the street from the gate. 

Rossman’s – the best vegetable stand in Brooklyn is at our corner. A few blocks north is Liberty View Plaza, with a Bed Bath and Beyond and other stores. A few more blocks north in Industry City, with its fancy food court and maybe the Brooklyn Flea. After the Festool show there are many things to do in Brooklyn for the whole family from going to Junior’s for cheesecake, visiting the botanical garden, zoo, or carousel in Prospect Park, or a museum, and then having a fine dinner at any one of loads of places (ask us where – we have opinions!). A trek to Brighton Beach on a Saturday evening can result in some awesome food shopping and fine Eastern European dinners.

Stunning Photographs Show An Adventurer Swimming With Giant Manta Rays At Night


Sarah Lee/Caters News Agency

In her latest daring adventure, Alison Teal (previously featured) set out in the middle of the night to free dive with Manta Rays off the coast of Hawaii. Using only hand held dive lights, Alison dove over 50 feet down being careful never to touch the mantas as they fed off the plankton in the light streams.

Stunning New Close-Ups Show Saturn’s Rings At Double The Detail We’ve Ever Seen

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has entered its “ring-grazing” phase as it approaches the planet’s icy orbiters. As part of its mission, the craft has transmitted images of the rings at twice the resolution that humans have even been able to achieve previously (see full resolution photos here). Details as small as 550 meters, or a few hundred feet smaller than earth’s tallest building, are visible in the photos.

Powerful Portraits Show The Faces Behind The Women’s March On Washington

With the Women’s March on Washington rapidly approaching, photographer Clayton Cubitt set about immortalizing some of the organizers and activists involved with the event. On January 21, 2017, women and advocates for women’s rights will march in Washington—as well as in other cities and countries during sister even. Cubitt’s set of powerful portraits gives a voice to the women behind the march, their faces glowing and vital as they explain why they’ve decided to participate.

More info: Women on the March, Clayton Cubitt, Instagram (h/t: mymodernmet)

“As a woman I feel I need to be vocal about oppression. As a veteran I’m obligated to stand up for my rights and for the rights of others.” – Jessica:

“Without reproductive freedom this country isn’t free. We aren’t free.” – Heidi:

“I want to be on the frontlines of the resistance. The Women’s March is not only a show of our power but a reminder of our collective responsibility to love, protect and protest.” – Faiza:

“I’m marching because so much will be at stake for women of color under a Trump presidency, and we need to be the leaders that steer our country toward progressive change.” – Erin Malone:

“There is so much at stake in this upcoming administration. Women are the majority in this country. Our voices should hold weight.” – Candice:

“I’m twelve years old, looking too grown, my body the first woman to betray me.

Above me, weight. Below me, a thick and fraying gymnastics mat in the corner of our school’s gym.

Three boys. One drools with laughter. Another keeps his distance, or maybe is keeping watch, or worse yet, both. The third, who would later wind up dead but we’re not that far into the story, states his defense, unprompted:

get used to it, you’re a girl

and later I walk home alone, counting my steps, each one bringing me further from that moment and closer to my bedroom- my paints and pastels, my keyboard, cat, my diary, mirrors and mother, the smell of garlic dancing up the stairs and the scratchy feel of the rug on my cheek that I would lay on while counting my freckles and the hours left until the school bells rang again.

There are many things I’ve gotten used to and lying still beneath the fragile weight of a man is not one of them. And so I march, like I always have. I’ll march with my sisters and count my steps. I’ll link arms and kick up dirt, I’ll yell for all the times I couldn’t, I’ll shout for women who can’t. I march because each step forward floats my body home. – Hannah:

“As an Air Force vet & proud daughter of a Honduran immigrant, like endless women before me, my life is anchored in service and fearlessness. Inequality maims us all, and this march is a show of strengths and our collective leadership.” – Pam Campos:

“I march because our democracy is a dumpster fire. I march because structural patriarchy must be dismantled. I march because we fight sexism with solidarity.” – Winnie Wong, coiner of the phrase “Feel the Bern,” on why she’s marching in #womensmarch:

“I have no choice but to organize to protect my family and the communities that I love. We must stand up and fight back, people’s lives depend on it.” – Linda Sarsour:
