Joss Whedon: It's Just Straight Up Madness

Posted: Updated:

The New York Times' top movie critic, A.O. Scott says Joss Whedon's adaptation of "Much Ado About Nothing" is "perhaps the liveliest and most purely delightful movie I have seen so far this year." Yes, it's Shakespeare and yes, it's in black and white, but so many people who've seen it have loved this film. Joss joins Tony Potts (filling in for Steve Edwards) and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.

    Sutter Zachman had his first record deal when he was barely out of his teens. You may have seen the Orange County native was on stage at the Largo and other hot clubs around LA. He then left town...after what he called a few "bouts" with the music business, but now he is back with a new EP called ‘Repeat Offender.'
