Last year, I had very little time to luxuriate in Mardi Gras madness. Django Unchained was ramping up to arrive on Ash Wednesday and I was traveling and working hard to prepare for filming. This year, the movie is out and it’s a hit – #1 globally 3 weeks in a row, 2 Golden Globe wins and 5 Oscar nominations including Best Picture. I can hardly believe I’m a part of it. But between the movie and my new book, Know Small Parts: An Actor’s Guide to Turning Minutes into Moments and Moments int a a Career, I’m again traveling and working hard during Mardi Gras.
Thank goodness for the WWL parade tracker. Though I love visiting with my neighbors and making new friends, for those in a time-crunch, the app lets you know exactly where the parades are at all times. Even without spending extra time on the route, something’s gotta give so forgive my terse descriptions and enjoy the photos and videos.
