WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT NEW YORK?
The kinetic energy, everything is on your doorstep, like galleries and museums, and I met my wife here.
I’m a supporter of Concern Worldwide, The Bowery Mission, Unicef, Amnesty International and The Smile Train.
I wear Chanel Égoïste Platinum. Hairstylist Ben Skervin usually cuts my hair as we work together so much and we just do it on set.
My go-to for suits is Yves Saint Laurent (3 E. 57th St.; ysl.com) and Rag & Bone (104 Chritopher St.; rag-bone.com) for informal clothing. Two things I can’t live without are vintage black Calvin Klein T-shirts (654 Madison Ave.; calvinklein.com) and my Prada gray camel blazer (575 Broadway; prada.com).
I use a Hasselblad H2 for shooting stories and a Canon G9 for personal.
Fifteen cast members, one hour to film them. We sat down with the current crop of SNL talent, and got their thoughts on SNL, potential skits for James Franco, and whether Adnan is guilty.
