Jason Emanuel Gould is an American actor, producer and singer. He was born December 29, 1966 in New York City, the son of singer and actress Barbra Streisand and actor Elliott Gould, his parents separated in 1969 and divorced July 9, 1971. His family is Jewish, he spent his formative years around major Hollywood players in California. Gould appeared in the romantic comedy-drama film Say Anything... and the romantic drama film The Prince of Tides, but has appeared in front of the camera since then. In 1997, he made his West End theatre début in the drama play The Twilight of the Golds at the Arts Theatre in London, England. Gould wrote and directed the short comedy film Inside Out, playing Aaron in the story of the child of two celebrities, outed by the tabloids, his real-life father played his father in the short film. His real half-brother Sam Gould played the part of his brother; the short was combined with other features for the compilation film Boys Life 3. In recent years Gould has started singing and he has released an EP, "Jason Gould" and "Morning Prayer/Groove", though Morning Prayer is on the first EP. Gould has performed with his mother during her 2012 North American tour and during her 2013 European tour.
He appeared singing "How Deep is the Ocean" on her "Partners" album. In 2017, he released Dangerous Man. Around 1988, at the age of 21, Gould came out to his parents as homosexual. Around 1991, tabloids outed Gould as being gay. In an interview with The Advocate published August 17, 1999, Streisand said: I would never wish for my son to be anything but what he is, he is bright, sensitive, a conscientious and good person. He is a gifted actor and filmmaker. What more could a parent ask for in their child? I have been blessed. Most parents feel that their child is special, I am no different. I have a wonderful son. My only wish for my son, Jason, is that he continues to experience a rich life of love, happiness and fulfillment, both creatively and personally. Nobody on this earth has the right to tell anyone that their love for another human being is morally wrong. I will never forget how it made me shudder to hear Pat Buchanan say that he stood "with George Bush against the immoral idea that gay and lesbian couples should have the same standing in law as married men and women."
Who is Pat Buchanan to pronounce anyone's love invalid? How can he deny the profound love felt by one human being for another?... However, as long as people like Newt Gingrich and Pat Buchanan continue in public life, the fight to codify gay marriages will be a tough battle to win. Jason Gould on IMDb Jason Gould at AllMusic

Best in Show (film)
Best in Show is a 2000 American mockumentary comedy film co-written by Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy and directed by Guest. The film follows five entrants in a prestigious dog show, focuses on the surreal interactions among the various owners and handlers, as they travel to the show and compete during the show. There are short depictions of the characters six months after the show is over. Among the comedic aspects of the film are similarities between the personalities and characteristics of the owners and those of their dogs. Much of the dialogue was improvised. Many of the comic actors were involved in Guest's other films, including Waiting for Guffman, A Mighty Wind, For Your Consideration, Mascots; the film's score was composed by C. J. Vanston. Best in Show is presented as a documentary of five dogs and their owners destined to show in the Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show, held in Philadelphia. Segments of the documentary continuously cycle among owners and handlers as each prepares to leave for the show, arrives at the hotel, prepares backstage, handles their dog's performance, appears in a post-show follow-up.
The owners and their dogs include: Gerry and Cookie Fleck, with their Norwich Terrier Winky -A middle-class couple from Florida, who run into monetary problems and are forced to sleep in the hotel's storage room when they arrive. Throughout the film, they encounter men. Meg and Hamilton Swan, with their Weimaraner Beatrice -An upper-class, stereotypical yuppie couple from Chicago, they think they are taking great care of Beatrice, going as far as taking her to a therapist after she sees Meg and Hamilton have sex. At the show, the Swans believe that Beatrice will become unnerved without her favorite toy, the "Busy Bee", frantically search for a replacement for it before the show. Harlan Pepper and his Bloodhound Hubert -The owner of a fishing goods store and an aspiring ventriloquist. An affable man who prides himself on being able to name nuts, Pepper's family has raised a variety of hounds for generations, Harlan continues the tradition by raising bloodhounds. Sherri Ann and Leslie Ward Cabot with their Standard Poodle Rhapsody in White -A two-time past winner of the show.
Sherri Ann is a trophy wife to her sugar daddy. They are assisted by trainer Christy Cummings who makes sure the dog is ready for the show, while Sherri Ann fixates on giving Christy a makeover and Leslie remains utterly oblivious. Over the course of the film, Sherri Ann and Leslie's sham marriage and Sherri Ann and Christy's romantic involvement becomes apparent. Scott Donlan and Stefan Vanderhoof and their Shih Tzu Miss Agnes -A campy gay couple, they take great pride in their dog, are confident that she will win the competition, they have a love of old movies, enjoy making fun of Christy Cummings, but are friendly to the other competitors the Flecks. The owners and their dogs all arrive in time for the show, hosted by dog expert Trevor Beckwith, oblivious "color" commentator Buck Laughlin. During the first round, Beatrice is disqualified when Hamilton cannot control her, but the other four dogs advance to the final round. Just before the finals, Cookie insists that Gerry take over for her.
Though the audience is awed by seeing Gerry's "two left feet" Winky takes Best in Show. Afterwards, the film explores. Gerry and Cookie are overcome with attention after the victory, they go on to record, in amusingly bad style, songs about terriers but discover to Gerry's frustration that the recording engineer is yet another of Cookie's ex-boyfriends. Sherri Ann and Christy have entered into a partnership and publish a magazine for lesbian owners of purebred dogs, called American Bitch. Harlan fulfills his dreams and becomes a ventriloquist, entertaining sparse crowds with a honky tonk song and dance number. Stefan and Scott are in the process of designing a calendar featuring Shih Tzu dogs appearing in scenes, with appropriate costume, from famous classic films, such as Gone with the Wind and Casablanca Hamilton and Meg Swan no longer have Beatrice, allowing them to enjoy a calmer, more loving partnership as well as a new dog named Kipper who they claim enjoys watching them make love; the starring dogs listed here are denoted by their registered names.
All have earned the title Ch. indicating they have qualified for a championship at a conformation show, with most qualifying at the Canadian Kennel Club Championship—hence the prefix Can. The breeder's kennel prefix, expressed in possessive form, precedes each dog's registered name; the registered name differs from the dog's call name, used to talk to the animal. In the example, Echobar Take Me Dancing's call name is "Peach". Can Ch. Arokat's Echobar Take Me Dancing - Beatrice the Weimaraner Can Ch. Urchin's Bryllo - Winky the Norwich Terrier Ch. Quiet Creek's Stand By Me - Hubert the Bloodhound Can Ch. Rapture's Classic - Miss Agnes the Shih Tzu Can Ch. Symarun's Red Hot Kisses - Tyrone the Shih Tzu Can Ch. Exxel's Dezi Duz

J. T. Walsh
James Thomas Patrick Walsh was an American actor. He appeared in many films, notably Good Morning, Vietnam, A Few Good Men, Nixon, Sling Blade and Pleasantville. According to Leonard Maltin, he was known for portraying "quietly sinister white-collar sleazeballs" in numerous films, was described as "everybody's favorite scumbag" by Playboy magazine. Walsh was born in California, he had three siblings: Christopher and Mary. From 1948-62, the family lived before moving back to the United States. After studying at Clongowes Wood College from 1955–61, he attended the University of Tübingen, the University of Rhode Island, where he starred in many college theater productions. In 1974, he began working in off-Broadway shows. After college, Walsh worked as a VISTA volunteer in Newport, Rhode Island organizing tenants for the United Tenant Organizations of Rhode Island before resigning to pursue his acting career. Walsh did not appear in films until 1983. Over the next 15 years, he appeared in over 50 feature films taking the bad guy role for which he is well known, such as Sergeant Major Dickerson in Good Morning, Vietnam.
On television, he again portrayed an evil character, prison warden Brodeur on The X-Files in 1995 in the episode "The List". Walsh wanted to play good guys, despite being typecast as a villain, he played decent characters in Outbreak and Sniper, played the rather sympathetic Marine Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Markinson in A Few Good Men. He played a member of Majestic 12 in the 1996 sci-fi drama series Dark Skies; the 1997 thriller Breakdown featured Walsh as the villainous truck driver. It was his last starring film released during his lifetime. In his final year of life, Walsh starred in Hidden Agenda and The Negotiator. All three films were dedicated to his memory. In his tribute to Walsh in Time Out New York, Andrew Johnston wrote: "Walsh is invariably referred to as a character actor who specialized in villains, but that description doesn't quite do justice to what he did; the typical Walsh character was a plot device serving either as a moral counterpoint to the star of the show or as an Iagolike figure egging on the hero in a way to lead to the protagonists's downfall.
These characters were self-important authority figures'defending' the American establishment from the individualism represented by the movies' heroes... or crooks who thrived by exploiting the hypocrisy of the system. Walsh didn't just make a career of playing bad guys--his performances offered a sort of running commentary on the power structure of American society." Walsh died of a heart attack on February 27, 1998, after feeling ill and collapsing at the Optimum Health Institute. He was 54 years old. Jack Nicholson dedicated his Academy Award for As Good; the two had acted together in A Few Good Men and Hoffa. J. T. Walsh on IMDb J. T.

For Your Consideration (film)
For Your Consideration is a 2006 comedy film directed by Christopher Guest. It was co-written by Guest and Eugene Levy, both star in the film; the film's title is a phrase used in trade advertisements to promote films for honors such as the Academy Awards. The plot revolves around a group of three actors who learn that their performances in the fictional film they have not completed yet, Home for Purim, a drama set in the mid-1940s American South, are generating a great deal of award-season buzz. Many of the cast return from Guest's other mockumentary films This Is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, including Levy, O'Hara, Shearer, Michael McKean, Fred Willard, Larry Miller, Bob Balaban, Jennifer Coolidge, Jane Lynch, Ed Begley Jr. Michael Hitchcock, John Michael Higgins and Jim Piddock. Ricky Gervais, the co-creator of the British television series The Office appears, while John Krasinski, Richard Kind, Scott Adsit, Sandra Oh make brief cameos. Though the dialogue is improvised by the actors as in Guest's earlier films, the format is a departure from the mockumentary style.
The film received its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10, 2006. It was produced by Warner Independent Pictures in association with Castle Rock Entertainment and Shangri-La Entertainment; the film follows the production of Home for Purim, a low-budget drama film about a Jewish family in the southern United States in the 1940s. The cast consists of character actress Marilyn Hack as the family's dying matriarch; the film's director incorporates bizarre camera shots and acting notes, while the producer, heiress to a diaper service, knows nothing about producing films. The two screenwriters are at odds with the director, as they struggle to align the film's period Southern setting with incongruous Jewish references and words; when an unattributed rumor begins to circulate that Hack and Webb are to receive Oscar nominations for the film, each begins obsessing about the award. Hack pretends not to care while secretly pining for the award, Miller demands a higher salary and pushes his agent for more dignified work, Webb breaks up with Chubb.
The hosts of entertainment news program Hollywood Now visit the set and interview the cast. The studio intervenes in the production of Home for Purim and, deeming the film to be "too Jewish," re-title it Home for Thanksgiving. Despite this, the Oscar buzz around the film intensifies, the three prospective nominees begin to make press appearances to promote the film. Miller appears on a hip-hop teen show called Chillaxin' in youthful attire with capped teeth, a tan, dyed blonde hair. Hack gets breast implants and extensive plastic surgery to the point where her face is comically ecstatic. Webb goes on a shock jock radio show, only to field questions about her nude scenes; the Academy Award nominations are announced, only Chubb is nominated. Miller returns to auditioning for commercials. Webb attempts to revive her failed one-woman show, No Penis Intended. Hack makes a drunken rant on Hollywood Now and becomes an acting teacher, having made an uncomfortable peace with her mediocre career.
