I agree with Kristin and Al. Richard Rossi was stellar in NUTS. I think he was even better than Karl Malden, which is not to diminish how great Mr. Malden was. The reason I think Rossi was better as Al Kirk was because Malden played just one note of tragedy. Rossi was brilliant because he made Kirk funny and likable in the beginning. Malden wasn't funny or likable. Rossi had us laughing (I saw the show the last week Thursday night at Los Angeles Valley College). This was genius because when his secret is exposed and he deconstructs before our very eyes, it was even more impactful the way Rossi played us as an audience.

I'm reading Create Your Life. It's really encouraged me to express my creativity in different ways and not feel guilty for it. It's also helped me process a painful break-up as well, Richard writes in the book about processing hurt and heartbreak and sex and love hassles that can distract us from doing our art.

I participated in protesting Rossi a couple of times for his lenient attitude towards homosexuals. He is leading people astray. God hates those do these things. His new book is New Age. He is a consummate con man to dupe you all into buying his books and movies and music. You're all brainwashed. I have personally seen him live a couple times and he has a personality that inspires a personality cult around him.

"LionHeart" and "AChristianSoldier" are 2 obsessed cyberstalkers of Richard Rossi who seem to have no lives of their own and love to post the above type of sick remarks about Richard on various sites. Of course, they are too chicken to ever give their real names. Keep on keeping on Richard Rossi. There are more of us who love you and are cheering you on. I just read your new book "Create Your Life" and you gave me inspiration to move forward with my own creativity without being too hard on myself for my imperfections.

I heard Richard say in interview he has new music CD coming out on Amazon in a couple weeks called "without Her Love." There's a sexy woman on the cover of the CD art he held up for camera.

Rossi's film on Roberto Clemente is nearing the goal of having their first cut of the film edited. I heard him interviewed about it today on the radio. Here's link to watch footage from his Clemente film: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNJGQWuxyNOXM...

Rossi needs some finishing funds to finish Clemente film . My wife and I just donated a grande, it's tax deductible and it's gonna be a long overdue film on Clemente. Go to Paypal and send monies to the email clementefilm@yahoo.com

When you have someone making a movie with no money like Richard Rossi did with Sister Aimee, and moving forward without all the bells and whistles and he still finishes the film and makes a movie better than big budget studio films, that's a true artist! Bravo, Richard!!

I think it's good Rossi cast Nieto as Clemente because the part demands an athlete. Also, a more well-known actor would take the focus away from Roberto Clemente. Clemente is the name in the project.

This Saturday I'm going to see the first rough cut of Richard's Roberto Clemente film. He's showing it here in Pittsburgh. I am excited. A friend of mine saw the rough cut at a private screening in
Hollywood & said Rossi's rough cut was better than 90% of the finished movies out today. The Great One certainly deserves the love and dedication of a project like this.
