So stoked to hear that one of this century's best actors will give the story of Harvey Milk the justice it deserves. From Spicoli to a dead man walking to a special Beatles fan, Sean Penn has had range, depth, and soul. All needed for his upcoming role in Gus Van Sant's "Milk, the story of the country's first out-and-vocal gay politician, who was assassinated in 1978, because of his vibrant, unabashed self-awareness.
It's refreshing to tell the stories we need to tell.
