Wearing a cardigan and jeans and slouching on his office sofa on a cool September morning, the 39-year-old British stage actor turned talk-show host looks like he could sorely use a seven-minute nap. He was up past midnight last night—his preferred bedtime is 8:45 p.m.—in a Silver Lake studio recording a song for Peter Rabbit, Sony’s upcoming animated feature in which he voices the cotton-tailed garden dweller of British children’s literature. (“We all grew up reading the books in England,” he notes. “The character is sacred.”) He’s been shuttling to the Warner Bros. lot as well, for postproduction work on next summer’s Ocean’s 8, in which he’ll costar as an insurance investigator on the trail of thieves played by Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, and Anne Hathaway.

Personal politics While Haaland often stands as the only Native American in the room, she counts her heritage for providing her with empathy, courage, and the ability to imagine a better America. This proves extremely useful in a state in which half the population is on Medicaid, is affected most by child poverty, and a third of children go to bed hungry. “And that’s true for many Native communities across the country,” says Haaland. “It’s definitely an advantage when you are [able to] put yourself in other people’s shoes.” … [Read more...] about The struggle to be America’s 1st Native American congresswoman
By letting the woe-is-me of not being involved go unspoken, and instead critiquing the process, Patrick came off by far as the least embarrassing lower-tier candidate.
