For some reason I always believed that the first place I would perform live musically would be in La Romana at the amphitheater… well a couple of weeks ago that is exactly what happened and it was such a cool and surreal experience. Remind me to tell you about it. Photo con @nickyjampr minutes after we walked off stage. Haha. All love.
This weekend was a very special weekend. We celebrated the 10th year anniversary of Marvel cinematic universe. Every director, writer, producer and A list actor was there for a group photo. It was surreal… The harmony displayed by the whole Marvel family. And then this happened… and I was a child again. Never in my wildest dreams did I think the man whose comics I once collected would know me. Protect your innocence, for there lies your magic. Thank you Stan Lee.
So there was a lot that happened on the 20th of January… as you know a US prez swap, The Return of Xander Cage… but what you don’t know is that I got a pilot for the new Chronicles of Riddick inspired TV show, Merc City on that date. I have just been so busy I have only just now had a chance to read it. Wow. We all know Pauline is too young for me to actually return to the Dark role of Riddick but this is kind of a big deal. Thanks to Universal for being great partners on this new DT written show.
Who saw the xXx press conference this week in LA? It was pretty crazy in a great way. Look it up. And then this happened.
Sunday night was so cool on so many levels. So many interesting people and scientists that are making our world a better place…
However, I want to share this moment with you. As I was walking off the stage after presenting with my friend Mark, Morgan Freeman stopped me. He then told me of an incident that happened over 20 years ago, before I ever did a Hollywood movie… you want to hear it?
