    What claptrap about ‘crossover’. We human beings of all stripe have always enjoyed seeing interesting, compelling, talented personalities on screens, big and small. It was only the ignorance of producers, distributors, advertisers, and theater owners that placed the wall between people.
    Am so happy that those walls of separation are now few and far between. Tearing them down has resulted in a much more vibrant culture.
