(27:40) Scientists Identified the 47 Traits That Make You Good at Flirting

Remember flirting?  Well, we might be off our game once life gets back to normal.  But this could help:  A new study in Greece identified 47 different traits that make you an effective flirter.  500 people were asked to name different tactics that have worked on them in the past.  Here are the ten most common answers . . .

  1. Humor.
  2. Intelligence.
  3. Good looks.  Men ranked that one higher than women did.
  4. Politeness.
  5. Honesty.
  6. The level of interest you show in them.
  7. Being good with words.
  8. Being persistent.
  9. Being respectful.  Women ranked that one higher than men.
  10. Showing that you have good character.

Here are a few that ranked lower, but were still seen as effective:  Confidence . . . having common interests . . . being spontaneous . . . being mysterious . . . giving them a compliment . . . being romantic . . . being bold . . . and smelling good.

(55:10) "Good News" Stories from the Coronavirus Outbreak

  1. A 101-year-old World War Two vet and his 73-year-old daughter BOTH live at the same nursing home in Maryland.  And they got to celebrate Memorial Day together after they each beat COVID-19.
  2. There's a 17-year-old kid in Orlando who started his own radio station when he was 11, and he's still at it.  And he's been raising money for frontline workers by charging $5 for song requests.  In less than a month, he's raised over 30 GRAND.
  3. Here's one nice side effect of the crisis:  Robocalls from scammers are way down, because the call centers that run them have fewer workers right now.  Back in February, there were 166 million robocalls a day in the U.S.  By April, it dropped to 97 million. 
  4. Pizza Hut is giving away half-a-million pizzas to graduating seniors, and their families.

5.  A Chick-fil-A in San Antonio rolled out a red carpet, and threw a commencement ceremony for five employees who are graduating this year.

Ok, we made it to the end! Here are our two last movies that were directed by actors!

First, we take on A QUIET PLACE.  Originally, this was going to time out for when the sequel came out, but yknow, the world is on fire, so STAY HOME! Andrew and I have a disagreement, one of us hates pregnancy and the other one has empathy.  Who knew?

Then we move on to the critical darling BOOKSMART. If you are online at all, you have been likely told to watch it already.  And we join that chorus, even if it is a female SUPERBAD ;)

Ep 2. John Krasinski

Off Camera with Sam Jones

As Jim Halpert, John Krasinski embodies The Office’s most beloved Everyguy, but his middle-achiever alter ego belies the actor’s impressive and accomplished resume. At just 33, he has written, directed and produced both television and feature films with some of the industry’s most talented heavy-hitters.

Krasinski shares his own version of the waiter-to A-list story and talks about staying true to his artistic path despite periods of self-doubt. An avid and humble student of experience, he discusses what he’s learned from his work with industry veterans such as Sam Mendes, Gus Van Sant and George Clooney. Krasinski talks to Off Camera about wrapping the final season of The Office, the value of supportive parents, and about his newest film, Promised Land, which he co-wrote, and co-stars with Matt Damon.

At one of the most interesting junctions in his career, an actor who’s arguably done it all looks ahead to what he hopes will be next.

Career Conversations with John Krasinski. Moderated by Jenelle Riley, Variety.

John Krasinski has established himself as one of the most exciting talents as an actor, writer and director, engaging audiences on the big and small screen. He directed, co-wrote and stars in A Quiet Place. 

On the small screen, Krasinski can be seen as the title character in Amazon’s adaptation, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, inspired by the novelist’s impressive franchise.

Krasinski last directed and starred in The Hollars alongside Anna Kendrick, Richard Jenkins, Margo Martindale and Sharlto Copley, which premiered to great acclaim at Sundance 2016 and was released by Sony Pictures Classics. Krasinski also starred as a Navy SEAL in Michael Bay’s Benghazi thriller 13 Hours.

Through his own Sunday Night banner, Krasinski executive produces Lip Sync Battle on Spike TV alongside Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Merchant, based on the popular segment on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon which he created with Merchant and Fallon in 2013. The hit show is in its fourth season. Sunday Night recently made an overall producing deal with Paramount TV. Krasinski notably starred on NBC’s Emmy®-winning smash hit The Office for nine seasons, where he portrayed the charming boy-next-door Jim Halpert. 

His recent film credits include the Gus Van Sant directed Promised Land, which he also wrote with Matt Damon; Disney Pixar’s Monster’s University in which he lent his voice; legendary Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki’s latest animated film The Wind Rises; and Cameron Crowe’s Aloha. His additional film roles include performances in the uplifting family film Big Miracle; Something Borrowed; Nancy Meyers' It's Complicated; Sam Mendes’ Away We Go; the animated smash hits Monsters vs. Aliens and Shrek the Third; George Clooney's Leatherheads; Ken Kwapis' License to Wed; Christopher Guest's For Your Consideration and Bill Condon's Kinsey. 

Krasinski previously adapted and directed the David Foster Wallace book Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. The independently financed film screened at Sundance in 2009, and was released by IFC later that year. He also co-wrote an untitled action-adventure script with Oren Uziel, which was sold to Warner Bros. in 2013 that he will produce alongside Uziel.

He won a Theatre World Award for his stage debut in DRY POWDER, which he starred in alongside Claire Danes and Hank Azaria at the Public Theater in New York. 

Krasinski graduated from Brown University as an honors playwright and later studied at the National Theater Institute.

John Krasinski is best known for his Jim Halpert on the award-winning “The Office,” but as this in-depth interview suggests, he’s as much a writer-director-producer as a comedic star. Inspired by his arts education at Brown University and the National Theater Institute, he’s starred in “Leatherheads,” “Away We Go,” “13 Hours,” collaborated on “Promised Land” and “Manchester by the Sea,” and helmed “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men,” “The Hollars,” and now, the Paramount Pictures horror hit “A Quiet Place,” co-starring his wife, Emily Blunt. John also currently produces and leads the Amazon thriller series “Jack Ryan,” which means he is having quite the year. Brought to you by Universal Pictures.
