Olmos Gives Back

Actor Edward James Olmos talks about his 40 years in the film industry, about being a Latino actor, the success of Battlestar Galactica and the importance of giving back to communities, on the Dec. 26, 2008 program of "Conversations" on KCTS, PBS channel 9 in Seattle, Washington.

From the Columbia Missourian:

Actor Edward James Olmos of “Battlestar Galactica” and “Miami Vice” fame will speak on March 10 at Columbia College Located in Columbia, Missouri as a part of the Schiffman Lecture Series.

His lecture, titled “Ethics in Hollywood,” will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Launer Auditorium and will be free and open to the public.“

This year, we asked about the moral responsibility that a filmmaker has to society,” said Anthony Alioto, professor and Schiffman Endowed Chair in ethics, philosophy and religious studies at Columbia College. “Given the profound influence of movies in our society, including such things as values, we looked for a speaker who not only acted but also directed and produced, and was a community activist outside the profession.”

Olmos has garnered numerous honors for his work, including a Tony Award nomination for his performance in the musical play "Zoot Suit", an Oscar nomination for his role in the film "Stand and Deliver," and a Golden Globe Award and an Emmy nomination for HBO’s documentary "The Burning Season."

Aside from his successful acting career, Olmos has actively participated in giving back to the community.

Olmos is also involved in a number of humanitarian organizations. He is a U.S. Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, a national spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, and the executive director of the Lives in Hazard Education Project, a national program that works to prevent gangs.

Also, Edward James Olmos was in Salinas, California recently to help raise money for the Boys and Girls Club:

Eddie also had been in Washington D.C. for the inaugural:

After watching his performance on these final episodes, I sincerely think this man should be doing Shakespeare (King Lear, The Tempest, whatever). What a great actor, wow.

THANK YOU for so much EJO news!!!

He is a so great actor, and seems to be a very good and nice man!


He gave me chills in the last episodes. I love his character.

I hope this year BSG would be considered at the emmys...

Sigh, I live in Salinas and was out of town that day! Argh.

EJO is so amazing -- he gave me chills last week too, especially when Zarek told him Tigh had been killed... and his reunion with Laura. Maybe FINALLY he and Mary will get those Emmy noms!

EJO directed the movie, what movie? Will it come out after the series has ended in the movie theaters or is it for the dvd set?

Wow, I found an answer to my own question on the blog from the Guardian, thank you nice person for mentioning this info:

"The tv movie is called The Plan and is concerned with retconning an specific line in the opening credits that was forced on Ron Moore by a sci-fi channel exec. Remember the credits in the opening 2 season that said the Cylons had a specific plan? It wasn't true as far as Moore or any of the other writer's were concerned but sci-fi insisted upon to try and rum up more intrigue and hopefully interest.
Ron Moore is on record as saying they were given a chance to retcon this as there had been many fan complaints about it. So the movie is set before and during the destruction of the colonies and explores more of cylon society."

I cross-posted someone else's info, I know that is bad form, but they did answer the question and I thought I'd post it here, since, well, I had just asked it!

In preparation for the purchase of a tennis racquetbefore, we must consider your financial ability to bear; On this basis, a further comparison, as far as possible, choose your tennis racket.
