Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

TMZ.com 'unknown' Adrianne Palicki cast as 'Wonder Woman' in David E. Kelley's upcoming NBC-TV show
I did this search this afternoon on a whim after getting a frantic phone call from a well-connected Left Coast friend about this big entertainment news:
NBC Casts Wonder Woman, Prime Suspect. Good Actress = Good Show?
Posted by James Poniewozik Thursday, February 17, 2011 at 10:45 am
Naturally, given her years on TV, even the recent critically-lauded but ratings-challenged Fox-TV show, Lone Star, which I just loved, I expected that TMZ would at least have something up about our Tyra, even if just something in the archives.
Maybe some fetching photo of her at a film premiere or a charity bash.
Instead, as you can see above, it read simply, "Your search did not return any results."
I fully expect this cloak of secrecy about Adrianne on one of the most-popular entertainment websites in the world will change in a big way soon, as the casting news about this iconic role, so much-discussed on Internet chat sites and forums, in myriad languages around the world, percolates in the blogosphere, and the curiosity about this talented young actress escalates.
Adrianne's comments in a special segment after the Friday Night Lights series finale aired recently on DirecTV, were very accurate and heartfelt, and could well have been spoken by any of its many devoted fans, of which I am but one.
For those of you who will watch the series final season on NBC-TV soon, that last episode could NOT have been more perfectly written or acted, too!
Friday Night Lights final season on NBC-TV begins on April 15th.
Sorry Eliza Dushku and Cobie Smulders, I was rooting for ya, but Adrianne will do a great job, I'm sure.
I'm really happy to see our Tyra finally get this big break in her show biz career, a chance to be THE star of her own show.
Adrianne has been one of the most compelling parts of FNL, one of its moral compasses, and it's great news that David E. Kelley & Co. saw her potential and decided to reward her for her hard work and excellent acting.
Given our feelings for the show and her, we're rooting for her in a very big way!

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.
Today is the day. Today is a celebration. Today is my day. Today, I hiked, I photographed, and I explored. Today I choose to love. Today I'm happy. Today I'm blessed. Today is my birthday. Today is a special day for you and me. #birthdaygirl #birthday #birthdaymonth #brazil #braziltrip #rio #theview #livingthelife #lifeisgood #morro #rio #praia #travel #miami #miamigirl #luckygirl #loveisintheair #justdoit #artist #photographer #photography #taiwan #beautiful #vacation #viajar #instagood #smile #dreambig #wishes #true
