Miguel Ferrer (George's cousin) visits Israel

Post by Katiedot on Mon Sep 19 2011, 11:56

It seems he was visiting Israel this week with a group of entertainment professionals from America, on a trip sponsored by America’s Voices in Israel.

From Jerusalem Post

MIGUEL FERRER, a distinguished film and television actor, best known to audiences for his roles on in the television shows Crossing Jordan and Twin Peaks, and to movie audiences from Traffic and RoboCop, said this trip to Israel had changed his vision of the country.

“The mentality in the States is that you’re dodging bullets from the moment you leave your hotel room,” he said.

Two days into his visit, he said that the opportunity to see the Golan Heights was especially fascinating. “As much as I thought I knew about the history, I learned much more.”

He was also happy to have the chance to see Tel Aviv as well as Jerusalem.

“They are disparate worlds. You have the juxtaposition of a very modern city with a very ancient city. It’s a country of conflicts and a country of miracles.”

Ferrer, the son of actor Jose Ferrer and singer Rosemary Clooney (which makes him George Clooney’s cousin), said that he thought the term “character actor” was redundant.

“I’ve been very fortunate in my career. Maybe it’s naïve but I like to think my best work is still ahead of me. Anyway, it keeps me showin’ up,” he said.

“I have the best job in the world. I get to have a great time with a female but don’t have to go home with her.

I get to kill somebody but I don’t have to go to jail.”

As Ferrer, eager to get going, stood waiting to board the tour bus, I couldn’t resist joking, “Watch out for the scrambled eggs,” a reference to a hotel meal of great significance in the life of his character, a witness in a drug case, in the movie Traffic.

“What? Why? Oh, right, I should have gotten that,” he said, laughing and putting on his sunglasses.

America's voices in Israel ? Never heard of that organisation before.

I just hope he isn't a " lobbyist " for the Israelis ! Rolling Eyes

Clooney-love. And they said it wouldn't last
