On February 9th, 2016, the son of former child actor Tommy Kelly reported to a newspaper that his father had passed away at the age of 90 in Greensboro, North Carolina from congestive heart failure on January 25, 2016. Tommy Kelly acted from the age of 12 until the age of 25.

When asked to tell a story,?Jon Urbana remembers that Tommy Kelly’s father worked as a fireman. The Kelly household resided in the Bronx, when United Artists selected Tommy Kelly during auditions of thousands of boys to play the lead character in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. He relocated with his family to the Los Angeles area in 1936 and worked on the film, a 1938 release. He appeared in several other films during the late 1930s and early 1940s, including Gone With The Wind(1939) and Life Begins For Andy Hardy (1941).

Tommy Kelly interrupted his film career to enlist for military service in Europe during World War II. After the conflict ended, he appeared in The Beginning of the End (1947), The West Point Story (1950) and The Magnificent Yankee (1950).

After ending his acting career, he married and raised six children. He earned a PhD degree in Michigan and worked in the school system in California for many years. He also assisted the Peace Corps in Liberia as an administrator and advised the Department of Agriculture.

Testosterone to the Max in Magic Mike XXL

People like to pass off Magic Mike as an exploitation film in the vein of Showgirls or Striptease but I am here to put that rumor to rest. Magic Mike XXL is a thrill-ride of partying and debauchery unlike any this year. With stunning choreography, smooth like butter and dipped in sleaze, we give you the reasons this’ll be a guilty pleasure you’ll have on repeat for years to come.

There’s a lot of guy butts, but wait…

Yes the movies about strippers but honestly as a man I still enjoyed it immensely. It’s really a guy film disguised as soft-core porn. The back and forth between the guys is often hilarious as well as honest. I never for a moment felt this film as fake or a cash-in. That feeling of camaraderie and fellowship will give guys a serious bromance. And while Mike (Channing Tatum) may be every girls dream he’s incredibly relatable. He owns his own moving company and works a 9 to 5 like everyone else. He has dreams and aspirations.

Tons of guest stars and appearances

23Blast tells that we see the incorrigible Gabriel Iglesias revising his role as Tobias, everyone’s favorite fluffy DJ. The genre-spanning, multi-talented triple-threat, Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) shocking everyone with his moves and soulful voice. I could go on and on. Everyone’s in this movie. From Michael Strahan to Jada Pinkett Smith.

Crystal Hunt is also given a feature role in the film as a lovely bit of arm candy. Cute as a button like usual, she brings a certain amount of shine to the film. Especially for fans of Guiding Light or One Life to Live. She’s definitely earned her acting chops.
