On the international front, Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass will break down the global tension over a nuclear Iran, while former National Security Adviser Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski and Washington Post columnist David Ignatius will weigh in on Afghanistan security. Will the region be ready for a 2014 pullout? President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron seem to think so.
We’ll also hear from Nada Bakri, the widow of two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Anthony Shadid. The New York Times journalist, who passed away last month from an asthma attack in Syria, is out with a new book, “House of Stone: A Memoir of Home, Family, and a Lost Middle East.” What does Bakri think about the outflow of posthumous praise Shadid received from the entire media community?
Rounding out the show will be Academy Award winner Adrien Brody, who’s out with a new flick,“Detachment.” We’ll discuss what it felt like for the Queens native to return to old stomping grounds and star in a movie about a New York City public school substitute teacher. Is “Detachment” more like “Dangerous Minds” or “Waiting for Superman?”
If we have time, we’ll also ask him what it feels like to be considered one of Gillette’s Masters of Style. Not too shabby.
