Takes On Corporate Spying In “Paranoia!”
When one looks at the huge financial dealings of the corporate world and the cut throat, dog-eat-dog atmosphere that has been fostered between its competitors; it makes you wonder if a company needed a piece of transformational technology bad enough that they knew their competitor had, how far would they go and how low would they stoop to get it? Liam Hemsworth plays a character named Adam Cassidy in the new techno-thriller “Paranoia,” who becomes trapped between two corporate CEO’s whom at one time where partners but fell out with each other and started their own companies which are at odds with each other to grab and maintain dominance in their markets. Melbourne, Australia native Hemsworth navigates the role smooth and convincing while keeping viewers on the edge of their seats.
How was his experience filming in Philadelphia? Hemsworth is relaxed stating, “Philadelphia was great. I’d never been there before. It was interesting because it’s like a small New York. It’s not as big and easy to film in. We had a great time there, it’s a good city.” This is a story with a different twist from other projects he has worked. What was the difference for him? A nice smile is produced as Hemsworth explains, “I think what’s good about this film is that you get a good inside about this day and age and how hard it is to keep things private from your personal life to the internet and how much information is able to be stolen so easily and so quickly.”

An Intimate Night of Spoken Word
I was blessed to be able to perform poetry and comedy at The Beverly Hills Country Club recently. The headliner was Emmy nominated actor/director Malcolm-Jamal Warner. He closed the show with his unique Spoken Word ensemble entertaining the sold out crowd. Comedian Stevie Mack hosted the event along with poetry from Heather Parker and The “Oracle” Denise Lyles-Cook. It was an amazing night with a 3 course dinner and Free Dama Tequila for the adults. I tried to order a drink for myself but they weren’t serving chocolate milk. However, I do love their slogan, “The world’s first Tequila created by women for women™ …and the men who love them”.
Deon Edwards from www.TwiceDot.com, an online Newspaper, produced the event.

I especially love the fact that Mr. Deon made sure that proceeds from the event benefited The Fred Jordan Mission. (For over 50 years The Fred Jordan Mission has been dedicated to feeding the hungry, healing the hurting, serving the homeless and loving the unloved.) Combining entertainment and help others is a blend I love to be a part of.
To see Leroya's performance at the show click on www.youtube.com/watch?v=abb1bBcaDvg or go to youtube and type in "Leroya Poetry & Comedy at the Beverly Hills Country Club."
