 Hi guys, sorry I haven't been around much - having a super busy summer, so struggling to keep up! I have two things to share though:

1) Someone bumped into RSL and got a picture with him the other day. it was posted on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BXwSMxsgy51/?hl=en&taken-by=lynx196.9

2) I discovered this from the Robert Sean Leonard Soy Tu Fan Facebook page which is very good. Its a short clip from the 1999 Broadway Revival of The Iceman Cometh and it features a RSL (albeit fairly briefly!)

 I think it was BTS of Birthmarks. It was posted by Alexander Hall who was an extra on House, who also became the stand-in for RSL!

I saw this on iTunes this morning. Unfortunately it doesn't appear on the Selected Shorts site yet.

 The Old Globe kicks off its summer Shakespeare season with a debate over how best to challenge a ruler's legitimacy, especially if he is divinely chosen to lead.
 
Tony Award-winner Robert Sean Leonard takes on the title role in "King Richard II," a leader who believes in the divine right of kings dealing with a revolt against his rule. Leonard is perhaps best known for his roles in the movie "Dead Poets Society" or the TV series "House," but has been performing at The Old Globe for more than 20 years.
 
"I think this play is the story of a man born into immense power, who feels he is chosen by God to rule, but he is actually quite distant from himself, from his humanity and his fallibility," director Erica Schmidt said. "We see the abuse of power, and the cycle of vengeance, and the deep, isolating fear of betrayal—which was quite radical for Shakespeare to write about."
 
"King Richard II" runs through July 15.
 
Leonard joins KPBS Midday Edition on Wednesday to discuss what he finds so compelling about his latest role.
