Hand to God’s Michael Oberholtzer on Wanting to Be MacGyver & More

first_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 3, 2016 Hand to God Related Shows Age: “Older than my character.”Hometown: Fort Wayne, INCurrent Role: A gut-busting Broadway debut as Timothy, a sullen high schooler who bullies the shy and puppet-possessed Jason in Hand to God.Stage & Screen Cred: Oberholtzer has been involved with Hand to God since its off-Broadway incarnation and was featured in Second Stage Theatre’s The Talls. He has appeared on screen in Delivery Man, The Americans and Law & Order.“Growing up, I was the class clown. I was somebody who liked to perform and had a big personality. I can’t remember what my senior superlative was, but it was something like ‘Most Likely to Have a Good Time.’”“I wanted to be MacGyver when I grew up. I wanted to work for the Phoenix Foundation, travel the world and be a scientist. That’s what I wanted to do, and when I found out he was an actor, I was like, ‘Dammit. I guess I’ll be an actor.”“My first paid acting job was with Young Playwrights Inc., and I framed my first check. It was only for like $150 but it was such a big deal for me. I sent it to my parents and was like, ‘Look! I’m doing this. I’m making money here.’”“There was a bit of disappointment at first when Sarah Stiles, Marc Kudisch and I joined the cast [of Hand to God] off-Broadway. For whatever reason, they decided to recast those roles. It felt like a family was broken up, but we all love this play and feel committed to it.”“Working with Vince Vaughn on Delivery Man was incredible. I hadn’t booked a job that entire year until that one. I really considered throwing in the towel. Then I get this part, I get to do a lot of improv with Vince—who couldn’t have been better—and work on that level. It was a dream come true.”“The thing that anchors me to Timothy is I understand the anger in this kid over being abandoned, and I can relate to the armor he puts on. But I wasn’t a dickhead in high school [laughs]. I was like an ambassador for everybody.” View Commentslast_img read more

Barcelona won’t activate Lautaro’s €111m release clause

The Catalans hope that those terms will aid their cause, with the club unable to splash out €111m on one player in the next window even if they wanted to. Barca’s plan is to bring Lautaro’s price tag down, with the player understood to be open to transfer talks. In his mind, he either remains at San Siro or heads to Camp Nou, and no alternative options will be considered. Inter, though, maintain that the player has expressed no desire to them for an imminent switch to be pushed through and, with that in mind, negotiations from this point are expected to be tricky. The Nerazzurri have made it clear that they will not bow to the demands of a European rival and will hold out for the best possible terms if a sale has to be sanctioned. Barca hope that including a number of their players in a part-exchange package will help to sweeten the deal and relax Inter’s stance. They want to bring in a proven performer who has 17 goals to his name from 37 appearances this season, with Lautaro seen as the perfect long-term successor to Luis Suarez in Catalunya. One opportunity to make that happen is about to expire, but there may be many more to put a deal in place. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… center_img Barcelona have no intention of activating the €111 million (£100m/$125m) release clause in Lautaro Martinez’s contract at Inter, but the Liga giants are still keen to thrash out a deal for the Argentine. Those at San Siro have made any suitors of their South American forward aware that one window of opportunity will swing shut at the close of play on Tuesday. For them, that is when the current release terms in Lautaro’s contract will expire. Barcelona consider that clause to be valid for another week, through to July 15, but have no plans to take it up regardless. The Liga giants are reluctant to enter into discussions at that asking price and are prepared to wait before opening any negotiations with Inter. Club president Josep Maria Bartomeu has told RAC1 when quizzed on the reported interest that Barca hold in Lautaro: “I am not talking about transfers. We have not marked the signings in the calendar for when they should be completed.” Meanwhile, Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has told DAZN that the Serie A outfit “does not want to sell its champions, unless there is a desire on the part of the player to leave”. Lautaro has given little away when it comes to his future plans. Barca believe an agreement can be reached but, with the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic taken into account, they see the 22-year-old’s asking price being considerably lower than its current mark.last_img read more
