Actor grateful for extraordinary role

first_img Well, what a surprise. Is Pam Anderson the one-time “Baywatch” actress turned middle-age spectacle, splitting from her third husband, Rick Salomon, after less than three months of matrimonial bliss? Salomon, most famous for being in Paris Hilton’s sex video and profiting off of it, has also been married three times – including once to Shannen Doherty. And remember, gay people in this country can’t even get married once. Previously married to Tommy Lee and Kid Rock, Pam filed divorce papers Friday. A few days later, she was seen shopping with him. Then on Monday, she posted this message on her web site: “P.S. We’re working things out.” I have my own message for Pam: P.S. Stop getting married! You don’t seem to be very good at it. Evert finds love in golfer Norman And while we are on the topic of multiple marriages, Chris Evert is hoping she will be third-time luckier in the matrimony department than three-strikes-you’re-out Pamela Anderson Lee Rock Salomon. America’s tennis-playing sweetheart during much of the ’70s and ’80s, announced her engagement over the weekend to golfer Greg Norman. Chrissie, now 53, has had a storied love life including a broken engagement to Jimmy Connors, dates with Burt Reynolds and then-President Ford’s son, Jack, marriage to British tennis player John Lloyd, an affair with British singer Adam Faith, a second marriage to Olympic skier Andy Mill. The six-time U.S. Open champion had three sons with Mill before a shock announcement in fall 2006 that they had split after 18 years. The timing was curiously close to the break-up of Norman’s 28-year marriage. Norman’s ex-wife, Laura Andrassy, has called Evert a home-wrecker but told London’s Sunday Telegraph: “I don’t really care. But if that’s what they want, then so be it.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! In the months before the acclaimed drama “The Kite Runner” opened in theaters last weekend, director Marc Forster tried to explain to the film’s star, Khalid Abdalla, that life as he knew it was about to change. “He keeps telling me, `Enjoy your anonymity while you can,”‘ Khalid told me recently. The movie, just nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign-Language Film, is based on the novel of the same name. Khalid plays Amir, a man who returns to Afghanistan under Taliban rule to heal his past after spending two decades in America. Although he’s been acting professionally since he was 15, much of Khalid’s work had been on the London stage. “The Kite Runner” is just his second film, which he shot after completing a role in “United 93.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champThe 27-year-old actor divides his time among London, Paris and Cairo but is quick to say “wherever there’s a great job, that’s where I want to be. … I want to be part of films that tell extraordinary stories whatever they may be whether they’re comic, tragic, human, horror. That’s what I want to do.” Khalid was born in Glasgow, Scotland, of Egyptian heritage and honed his acting skills while attending Cambridge University. He gives much credit to Forster – the director of “Monster’s Ball” and “Finding Neverland” among other films, for helping him transition from stage to screen. “He’s an extraordinary director,” Khalid said. “You don’t get to work with the likes of Dustin Hoffman, Kate Winslet, Johnny Depp, Emma Thompson, Halle Berry – and the list goes on and on – you don’t get to work with the likes of those people unless you are someone very, very special. He’s an extraordinary, sensitive man with a great eye on people and on the world and he’s a technical master of his craft. You feel supported no matter what you’re doing.” Third time not a charm last_img
