I got a little verbosely carried away whilst answering reader questions so you get two Q & A columns from your last batch of questions. Thanks for playing. This week I asked for a few Star Wars Questions but that's just three of the six questions answered here. Ready, let's go!
Troy: Within the past year Cynthia Erivo has won a Tony, Grammy, and Daytime Emmy for her work in the recent Broadway revival of The Color Purple, making her only one step away from completing the Egot. Which type of project do you think would giver her her best chance at winning an Oscar?

While, of course, no one is expecting Jurassic World-sized numbers for The Book of Henry, it surely has the potential to become a sleeper hit, performing modestly in its own right.
The film takes place in a small suburban town where a waitress, Susan, raises two children. »
