You may recognize actor Domhnall Gleeson from the Harry Potter franchise — he played Bill Weasley — but in Anna Karenina, he plays quite a different role. As supporting character Levin, Gleeson is a romantic outcast in Russian society, and when I chatted with the actor, he talked about playing the literary figure and why he's so relatable. Gleeson also talked about why he wanted to be in this film and what it's like to come off of the Potter films.
It was a special night in Brooklyn yesterday when Jay-Z opened the Barclays Center with a sold-out concert that kicked off a string of upcoming performances. The stadium is the new home of Jay-Z's Brooklyn Nets basketball team, and he shared on stage, "I want to thank you, Brooklyn, New York City, for making me the man I am today. Like I said, everybody's from Brooklyn tonight." The celebration continued when Jay-Z and his wife, Beyoncé Knowles, partied postshow at the D'Usse VIP lounge inside the venue. Jay-Z and Beyoncé launched the special D'Usse cognac with a bash at NYC's La Marina restaurant earlier this week.
