Vincent Kartheiser, best known for his depiction of ornery "Mad Men" exec Pete Campbell, has been an actor for the better part of his life. He grew up with five siblings in Minnesota and first dabbled in commercial acting as a child, eventually progressing to theater, television and film -- garnering a reputation for playing unfulfilled young men.

Now Kartheiser, known to have turned down many a project that didn't tickle his fancy, is bringing his signature brand of brood to the San Jose Repertory Theater for a production of Jonathan Marc Feldman's "Death of the Novel." He was hand-picked by the writer to play the lead role of Sebastian, a reclusive writer who is tortured by a traumatic past littered with the loss of loved ones. Set in post-9/11 New York City, the play expores the personality of this once-successful artist, who has resigned himself to the confines of his apartment to avoid the whims of an exterior world he can't begin to understand.

Daumier relished skewering the pretentious and the self-important. He did not spare those in public life who were, nominally at least. on his side of the great ideological divide.
Artwrit: dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel
dOCUMENTA's best product is not art, but belief: in the integrity of art, its creation and the cultural foundations that support the process.
Kate Ryan Williams: The C Word
There are no lists of "Uncircumcised World Leaders" like there are "World Leaders who are Left-Handed." It's simply not talked about. But I think it should be.
