We’re impressed that Josh Hartnett (top photo) is taking on the challenge of appearing onstage in the Tom Cruise role in Rain Man in London. Stage work can be grueling with low pay, but a great learning experience. Recently Josh turned down the starring role in a new movie about hot looking but drug addled jazz trumpeter Chet Baker. (bottom photo) Baker’s moody music and life ended tragically in 1988 when his cause of death was listed as “defenestration.” He jumped out of a window. Mesmerizing Chet was the James Dean type when he was young- it would be great if they offered the part to James Franco.
