Newswire: Daniel Stern pens a heartfelt ode to his longtime friend, “cool cat” John Heard

  • The AV Club
Years before they both appeared in blockbuster comedy Home Alone, bumbling burglar Daniel Stern and forgetful patriarch John Heard became friends on the New York theater scene. After Heard’s death this past weekend, Stern wrote an emotional tribute to his “crazy, crazy drink and drug stamina”-fueled friend that he posted on Twitter:

Felt inspired to write something when I heard about the passing of my friend, John Heard... pic.twitter.com/zi7gdQZYOa

In this passionate essay, Stern recalls dropping out of school and coming to New York, where he was quickly “adopted” by Heard and his pal Bruce McGill:

NCIS Season 14 Episode 19 Review: The Wall

  • TVfanatic
I confess, I love Bruce McGill, so his appearance in NCIS Season 14 Episode 19 charmed me from first irritable complaint (particularly calling the conference room a "table room," repeatedly).

Does it make any sense to murder two people over flooring? Nope, not really. But since I'm a sucker for a good emotional punch, "The Wall" worked for me much more than it didn't.

There was no reasonable explanation for O'Leary to murder Maya and the unfortunate Corporal Beck with such an exotic method other than for the sake of novelty.

The viewers were also supposed to simply accept that O'Leary immediately leaped to "murder" as the most obvious solution to the problem of the contaminated flooring.

Because suing the supplier who sold you said formaldehyde-tainted flooring is so unreasonable, I guess...?

To add to the head-scratching, nothing she did actually solved the problem. The flooring was still contaminated, and people were going to get sick.
