Dream Dances, Nightmare Snubs And Unforgettable Highlights Of The Broadway Season – Tony Watch

Twenty-four hours haven’t been nearly enough to settle, in my mind anyway, yesterday’s Tony Awards Sorkin Snub, but for the most part, the nominations sit well. Certainly they represent a decent scope of styles and approaches that make for a Broadway inclusive enough to find space for something as quirky (understatement of the day) as Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus and as traditional (if woke) Kiss Me, Kate.

I wrote about the snubs and surprises of the Tony Award nominations yesterday, so today I’ll walk through some random Broadway byways – congratulations, disappointments and shout-outs to performances and productions that didn’t make the Tony cut but merit remembering as this season heads to a close (Tony eligibility is done and dusted; the ceremony is June 9).

Best Musical Of the big, end-of-ceremony categories, this one probably has the least to quibble with, though I will: Be More Chill should have been here.

Second Trailer for 'Same Kind of Different as Me' with Greg Kinnear

"Amazing how far a little tender lovin' care can go." Paramount and PureFlix have debuted another new official trailer for the heartfelt drama Same Kind of Different as Me, from director Michael Carney. This was originally scheduled to open in February, but was delayed seven months and is now being released in October, if anyone still wants to see it. Greg Kinnear stars as a family man who befriends a homeless man, played by Djimon Hounsou, and changes his life through a bit of kindness and friendship. The film also stars Renée Zellweger in one of her other major roles (aside from Bridget Jones's Baby) after her hiatus, along with Jon Voight, Olivia Holt, Ty Parker and others.

Coming Distractions: Renee Zellweger and Greg Kinnear are basically saints in the Same Kind Of Different As Me trailer

The trailer for Same Kind Of Different As Me can really just be boiled down to this one exchange between a well-to-do sainty wife (Renée Zellweger) and her kindhearted but cynical husband (Greg Kinnear) about 90 seconds in:

Sw: It’s pretty sexy what you did today.

Kbch: Hanging out with a homeless guy?

Sw: How was it?

Kbch: Actually, it was kind of amazing.

Sure, the film by first-time feature director Michael Carney also stars Djimon Hounsou as a troubled, angry “modern-day slave” the couple befriends at a soup kitchen, and Jon Voight as a conservative caricature (himself, essentially). But the real message of this trailer is that the two middle-class white people at its center have a lot to pat themselves on the back for. They willingly became friends with a black person. And a poor one at that! Lest anyone think this is just more Hollywood mawkishness ...

See the Power of Friendship in 'Same Kind of Different as Me' Trailer

"You're not a bad man, and I'm glad we're friends." Paramount has debuted the trailer for a drama called Same Kind of Different as Me, adapted from the memoirs of Denver Moore, Ron Hall & Lynn Vincent, about the lives of three people bound together by fate and friendship. The film stars Renée Zellweger in her first major role (aside from Bridget Jones's Baby) in years, Greg Kinnear, and Djimon Hounsou; along with Jon Voight, Olivia Holt, Ty Parker and others. This looks like an emotional, heartfelt story of friends and family, but some of it looks pretty bland and melodramatic. They're also dumping this during the Oscar season meaning it's not that great, but at least Djimon Hounsou looks exceptional. Give it a watch. Here's the first official trailer for Michael Carney's Same Kind of Different as Me, direct from YouTube: A modern-day slave, an international art dealer, and
