“Many of us in Hollywood feel that since they pay us so well to do something so relatively easy, that we owe it to ourselves, and to the world, to ‘give back’. Many of us, with that artificial sense of self-importance that comes with being in the movies or on television, feel we are poised and even obligated to ‘weigh in’ on important issues of national or geo-political nature. When really, most Americans would just prefer we ‘shut up and sing’ (or dance or act or whatever it is we do). Yet we blather on and many of us expose our idiocy (not naming names) — and some of us perhaps even intellectually raise the debate (again, no names… ahem). And forgive me if I reduce the seemingly mind-boggling chasm between our disparate philosophies to this simple point: The Left wants the government to exercise and disseminate compassion towards our fellow man…and the Right wants the individual to do it.” — Gary Graham
Gary Graham. Gary is a member of a group that was once thought to be near extinction — Hollywood conservatives. We are going to talk with Gary about what is so “controversial” (see below) about his opinions, just how “liberal” is Hollywood, his thoughts on the current state of political affairs, his latest movie project – “Dust of War” – and that thing that has special place in his heart…The Gary Graham Garage Band!
Gary Graham was born in Long Beach, California and grew up in and around Orange County. The son of a medical doctor, he too aspired to a career in medicine. However, despite showing prowess in the medical sciences, Gary left pre-med to study theater arts at the University of California, Irvine, in the early seventies.
His first feature film role was opposite George C. Scott in “Hardcore.” Since that time Gary has appeared in numerous feature films such as “Robot Jox,” “The Last Warrior,” “Man Trouble,” and “Hollywood Knights,” many TV movies and series. From 1990 to 1996, he starred as Matt Sikes in FOX TV’s “Alien Nation.” More recently he was seen in recurring roles as Capt. Ingles on “J.A.G.” and as Ambassador Soval in “Star Trek: Enterprise.” He’s played more than 30 TV roles, and has also been in more than 30 movies.
Gary’s also very active and vocal politically, and writes a regular column on [Big Hollywood], voicing his ever controversial opinions as well as appearing at several political rallies, where he really can get the crowd going.
Still active in the film business, Gary now is a producer for the new reality TV show, “The Ultimate Shooter,” and is working with Jace Hall and HD FILMS at Warner Brothers writing and producing the new internet web-series, “What If..?” He also stars in the popular web-series “Dead End City,” on Strike.TV.
He lives in a small town outside of Los Angeles where he enjoys spending time with his family, working weekends as a volunteer Ski Patroller, golfing, and flying.
Oh…let’s not forget the MUSIC! The G3 Band – The Gary Graham Garage Band.
Next up, our very own Oklahoma Star, Amanda Teegarden, the Executive Director of OK-SAFE.
Last week the first committee hearing on the Federal Health Care Reform Law was held at the Oklahoma state capitol. This was an all-day meeting and figuring out what it all means is very difficult for most but what happens during these meetings is extremely important.
The stated purpose of the hearings according to OK. State Sen. Stansilawski;
“Oklahoma patients, taxpayers, businesses, health practitioners, insurers and others all have wide-ranging questions and concerns about this largely unwanted new federal law. The law will affect all Oklahomans, some in significant ways, so this committee will seek to address all relevant questions and concerns for the benefit of all Oklahomans.”
Lucky for us the ever diligent Amanda Teegarden was there and this Friday she will be with us to decipher what it all means. While we are at it, we have asked Amanda to apply her government-speak translation skills to an upcoming event to be held in Norman, OK. in October.
What is the “New Economy”? Why is our Governor now being referred to as “Oklahoma’s CEO”? What exactly is Foreign Direct Investment?
