Mad About Mambo Screen Captures

Mad About Mambo is a 2000 British/Irish co-production, filmed in Dublin but set in Belfast, written and directed by John Forte. It stars William Ash, Keri Russell and Brian Cox.

A boy obsessed with football finds his life changing dramatically once he adds a little Samba. Danny (Ash) plays on the football team at the all-boys Catholic school he attends in Belfast. Danny’s three best friends, who also play on the team, all have different ambitions for their lives. Mickey (Maclean Stewart) wants to be a fashion designer so he can get rich and date supermodels. Gary (Russell Smith) wants to become a magician so he can get rich and meet beautiful women (and presumably saw them in half). And Spike (Joe Rea) likes to beat people up, so he wants to become a mercenary and do it for a living. But Danny dreams of making football his life.

The players Danny most admires are South Americans, such as Pele and Carlos Riga, who he feels have a special rhythm and flexibility. Wanting to add some of these qualities to his own game, Danny has an idea: he’ll take Samba lessons, in the hope that dancing like a South American will help him play like a South American. To the surprise of himself and his friends, Danny turns out to be a pretty good Latin dancer and finds himself smitten with a student in his dance class, Lucy (Russell). However, Lucy happens to have a boyfriend, who is a fierce competitor on one of Danny’s rival teams.

Brooklyn Bridge Park waterfront gala raises record $1.35 million

In a night full of celebrities and New Yorkers alike, the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball near Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 2 basketball courts, raised a record $1.35 million for the park Thursday night.

The event, organized by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, was hosted by television and film star Jon Hamm with a musical performance from Grammy-winner Norah Jones.

The fifth annual event of its kind raised money to support over 600 activities and events at the park, which include kayaking, waterfront workouts and environmental education, according to a statement.

The park’s international acclaim brought 170,000 visitors to Conservancy events in 2017 so far, with a total of 1.6 million people taking advantage of the programs.

The Conservancy honored Douglas Durst, chairman of The Durst Organization, for his longstanding commitment to sustainability and the environment. The Conservancy also honored Hank Gutman, chairman of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, who has been deeply involved in the effort to build Brooklyn Bridge Park since his appointment to the board of the original Brooklyn Waterfront Local Development Corporation in 1998.

Other guests at the gala included, Mayor Bill de Blasio, host of CNBC’s “Mad Money” Jim Cramer, NBA star Mike Dunleavy, actress Keri Russell and her boyfriend actor Matthew Rhys.

2017 Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy Brooklyn Black Tie Ball

Like last year Keri and Matthew attended again Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy Brooklyn Black Tie Ball. Keri was stunning in Johanna Ortiz dress which features a strapless neckline and a fluted silhouette.

Now in its fifth year, the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball returns to Pier 2 where the Manhattan skyline and sweeping views of New York harbor will serve as the magnificent backdrop for the evening’s celebration of New York City’s most spectacular waterfront park.

“I’m not joking, we come here three times a day,” said actress Keri Russell, standing next to Matthew Rhys, her partner on “The Americans” and in real life.

“We have three kids, three different ages, and they all have their own thing to do here,” Rhys said. The eldest shoots hoops. The 5-year-old plays soccer.

“We ride our bikes, baby on our back, with coffee,” Russell said.

Next week, they start shooting the final season of “The Americans” — their last opportunity to show off disguises as undercover Russian spies pretending to be all manner of innocents.

“I like the really ugly ones,” Russell said. “I have one that’s sort of an old lady, grayish hair and glasses that’s funny.”
Rhys’s favorite is the one with a dark, thin mustache. He calls it Fernando.

“That’s the hot, sexy one,” Russell said.

Matthew Rhys Said the Sweetest Things About Partner Keri Russell

Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell’s relationship is en pointe. That much was clear during their Thursday, September 28, date night at the New York City Ballet’s fall fashion gala.

“Keri is an enormous ballet fan, so through her my eyes have opened to the intricacies of dance a lot more,” Rhys exclusively told Us Weekly. “I used to think, ‘This is ridiculous!’ but she explained to me how athletic they are, how strong they are.”

Rhys, 42, and Russell, 41, who costar on the FX spy drama The Americans, began dating in 2013. Us Weekly broke the news that they had welcomed their son Sam, now 16 months old. Russell is also mom of River, 9, and Willa, 5, with ex-husband Shane Dreary.

“Sam is growing up trilingual because he’s got Welsh, English and there’s Spanish in the house,” Rhys told Us. “He’s walking, he’s talking, shouting— not talking — shouting.”

Russell, who was standing next to Rhys, echoed the sentiment. “He’s a noisy baby. Oh my god, he’s so noisy,” she said, to which Rhys replied, “Just like mum!”

Rhys recently revealed that he asked the Felicity alum out 16 years ago when he was intoxicated after a kickball party. “I very drunkenly asked her for her number when she was a young, single, slip of a thing,” he recalled on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in April.

According to Rhys he left her a “drunken voicemail,” adding that he was “that buffoon that wouldn’t stop calling.”
