Are you okay? Is New York getting to you? Are things not going according to plan?
Stop whining. For fuck’s sake.
The plan you don’t plan for isn’t the plan you planned but it’s usually more original. Isn’t that why you moved to New York? To be original?
God, you didn’t move to play make-believe, did you?
Orlando Jones has favorite Sleepy Hollow ships. He liveblogs Supernatural on Twitter. He jokes about crossovers between Sleepy Hollow and his favorite TV shows. On his Tumblr, he posts image manipulations and self-deprecating humor. None of this would be remarkable, except Jones isn’t a fan—
—was how I was about to start this off. And then I realized that Jones clearly is a fan, he just happens to be a fan who is also an actor in the thing he’s a fan of.
Explaining why that’s remarkable is going to be tricky, because obviously actors are fans of things all the time. They’re, like, human beings or something. But Jones not only proclaims his fannishness loudly and without shame, he makes a conscious decision to immerse himself in fan culture. And that, as they say, is ballsy as heck.
Agreed. We need more Tumblr/media savvy peeps like you and Orlando in our TV industry.
