It is with a happy heart that I am able to write you all this early in the week. I have just spent hours on Canadian Journalisms Canoe.com.

I will personally look after Ms. Perez and see to it that all our actors are r...

The beautiful Diana Ross to be courted by Big Mike Craft and Progressive

user
The conversation this week between myself, Tony Cee, and female representative Frankie Spagnolo of First Sight is, can we convince Diana Ross to act again.

We did make contact with Ms. Kim Kardashian this week ,but due to the disarray of her representation, we could not get any straight talk. Ms Kardashian has never acted but wears clo...

Big Mike Craft to offer the Legend Ernest Borgnine, a role for the Saratoga, N.Y. Movie!

user
One of the greatest actors of all times is Ernest Borgnine. He was the best heavy of his time. A man who is decended from Italian royality, and an academy award winner, is going to be welcomed to our film, if he so wishes.   His part can not be discussed now for negotiations have just started for Laila Ali, Wayne Newton, Frank Sinatra Jr. and now Ernest Borgnine. I realize that Mr. Borgnine is 90 years old, but if he is willing, and his health is fine, he is welcome to join o...

Big Mike Craft at The Saratoga Race Track and Harness Track

user
The summer in upstate New York is as nice as any place in the World. We call them August Nights. The day's at the track are usually hot and humid. The nights go down in the low 70's and high 60's. It  is a nice time of the year. The Polo matches are exciting and well run by Jim Rossi and Mike Bucci. I'm still waiting for their mystery Hotel to be built, but I like them both. When I show up at polo, I am treated as a gentleman. The food is always good and the Staff is wonderful. I like Polo an...
