Beau Bridges Interview About Lone Sailor Award


Three of the newest Lone Sailor Award recipients were honored last week at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. The Bridges family, Lloyd, Beau and Jeff, are probably best known for their distinguished careers in Hollywood including their acting, producing and directing credits. But what might not be as well known is all three are Coast Guard veterans. The Bridges family received the award for distinguishing themselves by drawing upon their military experience to become successful in their subsequent careers and lives, while exemplifying the core values of the sea services.

In a recent interview at the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C., Beau Bridges shared with the Coast Guard Compass his experiences while in the Coast Guard and how the Coast Guard’s core values of Honor, Respect and Devotion to Duty have reflected in his civilian life.

Beau Bridges at Reading of "A Time to Kill" September 30

From Playbill: Beau Bridges and Shuler Hensley Set for Reading of Rupert Holmes' Adaptation of John Grisham's A Time to Kill:

A private reading of A Time to Kill, Rupert Holmes' stage adaptation of the novel by John Grisham, will be held in Manhattan Sept. 30, according to the New York Post.

Ethan McSweeny, who directed the recent world-premiere engagement at Arena Stage in Washington, DC, will again direct. The cast of the reading will include Beau Bridges, Emily Bridges and Tony winner Shuler Hensley.

Should the production move forward to Broadway, the Post says producers plan to approach Justin Timberlake for the role of the young legal protegé.


A Time to Kill, according to Arena press notes, "depicts a Mississippi town’s upheaval when Carl Lee Hailey takes the law into his own hands following an unspeakable crime committed against his daughter," according to Arena. "Now on trial for murder, Carl Lee's only hope lies with one young, idealistic lawyer Jake Brigance, who is outmatched by the formidable district attorney, Rufus Buckley, and under attack from both sides of a racially divided city."
