Delroy Lindo
Throughout a stage and screen career spanning decades, Delroy Lindo has intentionally set out to play the widest possible variety of characters. “I want to be able to encompass different human beings,” explains the actor, detailing the ebbs and flows of his career on this week's episode of “In the Envelope.” Delroy’s advice is balanced between optimistic encouragement and no-nonsense realism. It is inevitable that a life in the arts will bring dry spells, he says, but “don’t be dissuaded by the trauma of being told ‘no.’ Because at some point you will be told ‘yes,’ just as I was.” Born in London, raised in Canada and the U.S., and trained in San Francisco, New York City, and regional theaters, Delroy has pursued performing since his elementary school Nativity play. He’s appeared onscreen in “Soul of the Game,” “The Cider House Rules,” “Get Shorty,” and “The Chicago Code,” earned a Tony nomination for “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone,” and currently stars on CBS All Access’ legal drama “The Good Fight.” After working with Spike Lee in the 1990s in “Malcolm X,” “Crooklyn,” and “Clockers,” Delroy reunited with the Oscar-winning writer-director in last year’s Netflix hit “Da 5 Bloods,” earning him Critics’ Choice Award and SAG ensemble nominations. This episode also features an update from Backstage L.A. casting specialist Christina Kleppinger, as well as casting insider Christine McKenna-Tirella’s advice on survival jobs: https://bit.ly/3bxJ12S --- Backstage has been the #1 resource for actors and talent-seekers for 60 years.

Indulgence Nichole recommends soothing murder mysteries: Murder, She Wrote, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, and Death in Paradise.  Guest Tyomi Morgan is a certified sexologist and pleasure coach based in Chicago, and is the founder of Glamerotica 101.

Ellie Brigida and Leigh Holmes Foster
413: Twenty Twen-TV
Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) dig through the dumpster fire that was 2020 to find every gay silver lining they can. So much LGBTQ content was thrown our way in the last year and we are so here for it. We discuss The L Word: Generation Q and how even in a reboot the L Word continues to show only toxic and hyper-sexualized queer relationships. We sift through the queer TV and movies and pick out the good from the bad in representation. We discuss the issues with constantly seeing cheating, poorly redeemed characters (*cough* Catra), unhealthy relationships (looking at you Villaneve), and poorly done coming out stories (Harper, why?). We also dive into the more positive representation like The Haunting of Bly Manor, Schitt’s Creek, Teenage Bounty Hunters, and The Wilds. We talk about the many period pieces given to us (do filmmakers think that lesbians only existed in the 1800s?). We also talk about The Prom and how good it could have been if it was actually about lesbians instead of focused on Meryl Streep. If it was queer in 2020, we probably talked about it. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode. Leigh Holmes Foster (@lshfoster) and Ellie Brigida (@elliebrigida).
