CHICAGO – Chris Rock isn’t a huge writer/director, but when he does make a film, it’s an event to consider. For example, he made black president tale “Head of State” long before then-senator Barack Obama was even considered for the real-life role, and whether behind the stand-up mic or in an interview, he’s a voice to be reckoned with.
Exclusive Portrait: Birthday Photo of Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas
CHICAGO – Happy 18th Birthday to Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas, who made history at the 2012 London Olympic Games by becoming the first U.S. Olympian to win gold in both the individual and team competitions at the same Olympics, and the first African American U.S. gymnast to become individual all-around champion.
In 2014, a TV movie is being planned about her life, entitled “The Gabby Douglas Story,” which is rumored to star Regina King. HollywoodChicago.com photographer Joe Arce captured Gabby Douglas in May of 2013, as she was appearing at Barnes & Noble in Skokie, Ill., signing her memoir, “Raising the Bar.”
