JEALOUSY


Emily wants to know if John Cullum is ever jealous of other actors.

John says he's envious sometimes, but not jealous, and explains why he's always been fascinated by Peter O'Toole -- not because he wanted to BE an O'Toole. Early in his career in New York, John auditioned for a role that O'Toole did, and didn't get the part, and even now, continues to study Peter O' Toole's choices as an actor.

Emily admits to being jealous of dancers who have "better feet," and more flexibility than she ever had. But as the Cullums chat, they realize the jealousy/envy that performers feel is important -- it's something all performers need to examine --IT'S A TOOL -- a way of improving your craft.
