THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: When most of us think of reading westerns, classic western authors such as Louis L'Amour or Zane Grey come to mind. But several contemporary authors are taking the themes of the traditional Western and applying them in more contemporary settings. If you enjoy stories about semi-nomadic wanderers who live hard lives, mostly in wilderness settings, dealing with questions of honor and justice, you might want to try one of these stories of the new west. Also Westerns today are in both movies and television. But you may be surprised to learn that Westerns are the major defining genre of the American film industry. They are one of the oldest, most enduring and flexible genres and one of the most characteristically American genres in their mythic origins. Let's learn more about the new western and westerns in todays' film and television.

The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview celebrity Johnny Whitworth.
Johnny Whitworth is an American actor born in Charleston, SC, on October 31, 1975. Whitworth grew up moving throughout the south before heading to Los Angeles at age 15 to pursue his acting career.
Having appeared in over 40 film and television projects throughout his career, Whitworth has performed alongside some of Hollywood’s most notable talents: Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Nicolas Cage, Idris Elba, Renée Zellweger, Angelina Jolie, Matt Damon, Claire Danes, Danny DeVito, Mickey Rourke, Jon Voight, Christian Bale and Russell Crowe, in films such as Limitless, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, 3:10 to Yuma, Empire Records, Gamer, and Francis Ford Coppola’s The Rainmaker, to name a few.
In the early 90’s, he quickly achieved teen idol status after playing the wildly popular role of “A.J.” in the cult hit ,Empire Records. This came shortly after making one of his first acting debuts in the award-winning television series,Party of Five. Johnny also appeared, over a span of four years, in the beloved recurring role of “Detective Jake Berkeley” on the series CSI: Miami. Johnny recently returned to primetime television in the role of “Cage Wallace”, in Season Two of the popular series,The 100.
This comes after completing work in early 2014 on the dramatic independent film Bad Hurt, with co-stars Karen Allen, Michael Harney and Theo Rossi. Bad Hurt is a family drama set in Staten Island, New York in the late 90's. Johnny portrays “Kent Kendall”, a Gulf War Veteran suffering from PTSD among other elements, upon returning home from an intense military combat tour.
