“Often Jadwin had noted the scene, and, unimaginative though he was, had long since conceived the notion of some great, some resistless force within the Board of Trade Building that held the tide of the streets within its grip, alternately drawing it in and throwing it forth. Within there, a great whirlpool, a pit of roaring waters spun and thundered, sucking in the life tides of the city, sucking them in as into the mouth of some tremendous cloaca, the maw of some colossal sewer; […]

Hello Jonathan – Nice job on Fox, except for one statement which (if I heard you correctly), gives me pause: your stating that Tea Party members say: “keep the government away – but don’t touch my Medicare.”   However, Medicare is not welfare — we PAID for it out of our salaries.  It and Social Security are the only TRUE “entitlements” – we ARE due it back – because we funded it! Our government gives away money with no Constitutional authority: subsidized housing, legal help, food, medical […]

This pin was given to me at the premiere of the new film, Atlas Shrugged Pt. 2, in which I make a brief appearance. It is a replica of the one Miss Rand wore on the cover of The Virtue of Selfishness.

I’m proud to sit on the board of The Stephen M. Hoenig Memorial Actors Fund which my mother Ann established in 1992 in honor of our beloved son and brother.  Since 1993, we’ve given out tens of thousands of dollars to deserving and needy theater arts students pursuing their dreams thanks to our generous (and repeat) donors and my mother’s tireless efforts. If you know an outstanding college junior preparing for a career in the theater, please encourage him or her to apply for our $3000 […]

I make a brief appearance in Atlas Shrugged Pt. 2 during James Taggart’s wedding scene as a wine-swilling patron.  It was a true honor to be even a tiny part of the production and I highly recommend people both read that book and see the film — so many decades in the making.
