If you, like all Netflix subscribers, are obsessed with the popular Israeli show, Shtisel, you may have spent a fair amount of time admiring star Michael Aloni.
Aloni plays the tormented, lovelorn…artist Kiveh, and he's getting accolades for his sensitive portrayal of the young ultra-Orthodox man. However — and there's no doubt about this — Aloni is also getting considerable attention thanks to his very pretty face. (Swoon!) But it seems he takes it all in stride. When he was asked about being attractive by the New… >> Read More
Fans of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, rejoice! The hit series, renewed for season three last year, is set to begin filming this week in New York.
And, later this month, if you're in Long Island: The…show put out an open casting call for men to play 1950s soldiers on Wednesday, March 27.

"As the Avengers and their allies face yet another world-ending, apocalyptic showdown,… >> Read More
I love Shtisel, you love Shtisel, everybody loves Shtisel! The Israeli show, about an Ultra-Orthodox family of the same last name, is taking American audiences by storm. Streaming on Netflix, this…show has been covered by the New York Times and even has a Facebook fan group with more than 6,000 fans. I totally get the hype — Shtishel is truly an impeccable show.

My maternity clothing hadn’t been touched since I last took them off of my body nearly six years ago. They’ve been stuffed inside a large black garbage bag, with holes and stretches from being…thrown around from one closet to another, from one house to the next.

I knotted the red ties in a bow, and scheduled a donation pickup. It took… >> Read More
