#Forest Whitaker is a stunning and skillful talent, but after listening to him at the #sagfoundation screening, I am freaking inspired! So eloquent in speaking about Mandela, life, and share his humanity and craft. Also super useful to hear some of the different tools he employs when he is creating a character.

But back to Norton. Precision. Nuance. Amazing. After it was over, I watched some of his scenes multiple times. Work like that is just so inspiring; I want to dig into a script!!
