Edgar; the 2014 Sundance favorite Ping Pong Summer; and soon to be released Left Behind starring Nicolas Cage.

    Lea lives in Los Angeles with her husband of twenty-five years, film/television director Howard Deutch, and their two talented daughters, Madelyn and Zoey, along with many dogs, fish, horses, chickens, a cat, tortoise, and parrot.

    Lea has a dance background, so she might turn out to be pretty good. I think she may have the same challenges as someone like Jennifer Grey did with age.

    I remember years ago reading an interview with Lea about why she quit ballet. It was an interaction with Baryshnikov where he called her "stocky." Ouch. She was teeny, but I sort of got what he meant. It wasn't about body fat; it was just her build. Still....OUCH.

    I'm excited to see Artem this season!

    Leah could be very good particularly in the Standard dances. If she has hips then we might have a real contender.

    I saw a brief clip of Lea and Artem dancing. Lea is going to be one of my favorites.
